    Yes. And I was speculating as to the reason for that. Is there a problem?

    This is pure speculation, but maybe it's designed so that it can't be locked down accidentally, by a branch for example.

    Absolutely, and the bigger the better

    Ok, thanks that's good to know. I wonder if the barrel locking handle can be cut down to allow for a larger battery. Although I wouldn't expect anyone to do this to such a new gun, it would be interesting to know if it's possible. I'm still saving for mine so I can't look at one myself yet

    Nicely written, thanks for that! I have a question about the battery space: Apart from the length, is there much extra space above and to the sides of your battery? Most larger batteries appear to be wider and taller instead of longer.

    It looks like you might be able to drill holes in the feed tube for mounting LEDs, like with a G36. If you get round to taking more pics at any point, I'd love to see some details of the feed tube/hopup/nozzle area. Also I'm keen to know the dimensions of the battery compartment. It looks like it might take a slightly larger battery than the standard 'mini' size...? I'd also love to know if anyone is planning to run a LiPo battery in the gun in it's stock configuration. From what we've seen of the internals so far it looks like they can take it, but it would be great to know for sure whether it's 'LiPo ready' OOTB. Now that production models are out, I'm sure there will be dozens more questions from potential owners...

    Man I am SO jealous! Did you get the normal lower reciever too? If so, do you think there's room to install an internal tracer unit?

    Your sarcasm was obviously the reason for my previous comment. I will not respond to this childish behaviour again in the thread, as PM is the correct place for it if it must continue.

    If you have a problem, PM me about it. This thread is not the place for childish whining.

    Pointless post. Mr. Dingodog, have you sold all your pre-orders yet? And any word on the second shipment?
  11. Tacitus

    MagPul PTS MASADA ACR

    That's quite a strong statement! I wouldn't say 'nobody' wants the fixed stock. I do prefer the look of the folding stock on the Masada, but I like the fixed one too. I use a G36C for CQB and I never fold the stock, so the functionality of a folding stock isn't something I would personally miss.

    Excellent points from uscmCorps. With the release expected very soon, we'll have have all the information we actually need. Whether the gearbox is called v2 or v3 is of little consequence, as it's obviously not a direct copy of either of the original TM designs anyway. What is of consequence is whether the gearbox has the same inherent weakness of the TM version 2, or the strength of the TM version 3. Also whether it accepts TM standard replacement parts or not will be a very important detail. Is there any information on the expected cost of replacement parts? I hope they won't go down the same road as Systema...
  13. Tacitus

    MagPul PTS MASADA ACR

    Really? Look like a v2 to me.
  14. Tacitus

    MagPul PTS MASADA ACR

    Oh, that sucks. But at at least shipping prices from HK will be cheaper for them! Very strange wording! I'm very curious to know which company is actually making that gearbox. We've seen photos with 'PTS' stamped/engraved on it, but we really need some definitive answers! I'm sure everyone here would love it if you could go along on the 10th and report back. Maybe take a camera...
  15. Tacitus

    MagPul PTS MASADA ACR

    Awesome. If that date is accurate then awesome. I wonder why it's $200 more than everywhere else though... Can you elaborate on that gear box? Are you sure that's what it says? Everything we've seen so far has made it very clear it's a modified version 2.

    I don't think it's photoshopped, look at the weird pattern on the handguard, ejection port cover and lower reciever. It's the same in both photos. Looks more like a hasty paint job to me. The photos themselves have definitely been adjusted digitally to increase contrast and adjust the colours. Whatever they've done it's an absolutely horrible job.

    I've used them several times, and would recommend them to others. The only complaints I have are that they can sometimes take a few days to post items, and that their the photos and descriptions on their webste are mostly awful. It's so important to have good info on what you're buying. But overalll it's a good shop.

    If you order it from eHobbyAsia, you'll pay £350 with shipping. I've never had to pay any extra cost on orders from eHA, but they've all been relatively small.

    WGC want $79.21 to ship one to the UK.
  20. Tacitus

    MagPul PTS MASADA ACR

    That's way too much to pay on shipping! WGC won't say how much shipping is. Anyone know?
  21. Tacitus

    MagPul PTS MASADA ACR

    Free PTS MVG with pre-orders at eHobbyAsia. They say August
  22. Tacitus

    MagPul PTS MASADA ACR

    Yes technically the 29th is still October, a month in which we'll be Masada-less for 29 days.

    MagPul PTS MASADA ACR

    ETA November.

    @ PlasticMag: Your original post looks like you're responding to Mimesis, not Scuffer.

    He's been pretty clear about the fact that he's speculating, not claiming. No need to back up speculation if it's presented as such.
