The Milsig M17 is one of the most talked-about products in paintball right now and for good reason. The revolutionary mechanical full automatic line of paintball markers are designed to be the finest of MagFed markers on the planet. From hardcore MagFed play to scenario big games, these markers will take your MagFed experience to the next level.
We recently caught up with Aaron Yendall to ask him about Milsig and the M17.
Aaron can you give us a brief history of Milsig?
MISLIG Direct was formed in 2013 to handle the needs of the growing MagFed market and to be the US Distributor for the MILSIG product line. MILSIG is the oldest and most widely recognized manufacturer of MagFed paintball products in the world.
Can you give us a few nuggets about your new products? What is unique about them? What are the features?
All M17s feature a mechanical fully automatic operating system with a 3 position selector switch. The CQC features a polymer construction and a $300 price point. The XDC and DMR feature CNC aluminum construction as well as having rifled barrels and many other accessories. The NODE regulator features a pin valveless design using a twist on off and de-gasses the gun automatically when shut off. The 18 round magazine will feed both First Strike rounds and paintballs.
How did the Paintball Extravaganza go for you?
Very well. We are excited to see all the companies moving into the MagFed market. We strongly believe that through MagFed we can introduce an economically viable new addition to the game of paintball that is not based on ever increasing paint consumption.
What are your best selling products and why?
The M17 CQC has exceeded our wildest expectations. The combination of lightweight, full-auto, First Strike capability, and a $300 price tag have really struck a chord not only with existing MagFed players but tons of new players as well.
Anything new in the works that you can tell us about?
MILSIG is currently working on a folding air-through stock as well as a tank adapter the FXR carbine kit they make for the Tippmann TiPX and Tiberius T8.1 pistols.
