ICE Epic?

I have seen some ads and videos about the ICE Epic and I was wondering about how good the trap door mechanism works. Does it really never chop paint? And if the gun really is this good then why isn't is such a popular marker?

Its not popular because ICE was a very small company, 1 man operation. They came out in like 02ish if I recall...

They are amazing markers though, the trap door works great, internal regulator in the foregrip, gas thru design, very fast for a mechanical gun. this is also why they werent popular, by the time these came out the High End mechanical market for the most part was going downhill because the electro's were coming into play. And most nowadays looking into mechanical markers would rather spend 50-200 bucks on something then 500.

Its only like 2.2 lbs with the barrel which is ridiculous considering the high end electro's of its time were weighing in from 3-4 lbs and cost 1200+

I do believe he still makes them, but you have to call or email him and ask for one. They are truly a amazing and very underrated marker. Id still love to have one.
