Goblin Solo Launcher

Here's a peak at the upcoming new marker released by Goblin Paintball.

A single shot, break action, cartridge based launcher, this thing can fit right in the palm of your hand. As is, it ships with "SOLO Launcher, Fitted Tactical MOLLE Pouch, Air Cartridge, .68 Magnum Barrel, 6MM Nitro-Express Barrel, Air Adaptor, O-Ring Replacement Kit, Instructions" and a small assortment of accessories and add-ons can be found right here

Videos of the launcher have already been posted by Goblin Paintball, and discussion on some forums has cropped up over the white object being seen leaving the barrel with the paintball, possibly meaning that you need to wad the barrel to ensure it fires properly. Some concerns brought up concerning the marker include the method of charging the shells, which some fear may lead to wildly variable velocities and a weak valve. I'm reserving judgement until I see some results from the online community, but with an MSRP of $ 89.95 US the idea of owning one of these little guys is pretty appealing.

It will be available through various small and large paintball dealers soon but can be purchased now right here through the Vancouver based distributor (it's worth noting that this launcher is made in China). An all black version will be available early next year.
