Response to Robert, Russ, and other with exp., how does the mrod plinks tear stack up to the qb reptr

Don't have a standard QB around to will come out heavier by a good bit. AirMax stocks aren't real thick, but they are full-adult length, which might be a problem for younger shooters (current Qb stocks are also longer than the old QB standard's stocks....but at least you could hack on one and them buy a replacement as the kid grows).

QB79...the tanker version...ends up really heavy once you count scope/mounts/full 9oz co2 tank (full paintball tank is something close to 2 pounds by itself).

As mentioned in a post on the main page, loading the mag is a PIA for an adult...not real sure how kids would deal with it. I don't deal with it well out in the field, once the mags are all empty, will put the singl shot tray back in and NOT deal with them until I go back inside for lunch or a cup of coffee.

Power being equal, there's no way a single 12gr. is going to give the shot count of two 12grs. Not really an issue, other than the kids having to stop to reload twice as often.

Only time/use will tell. Seems very well built (even to the point of the striker and bolt using brass bearings on the screws that operate inside). If I had to bet, would bet the mags to offer problems long term...they just don't impress me as being as well desinged/built.
