This doesn’t appear to be a hoax. If it’s true, this is a blow to airsoft as a whole. Whether you like External Air Systems or not, Daytona Gun provided a high-quality platform, improving exsisting EAS GBB systems. The loss may not register with the wide majority of AEG users, but it does represent a blow to the sport.
From ArniesAirsoft via aznriptide859:
“The issue happened for more than 1 month time, here’s the update: i thought i can get back the money so that i have been shipped out 4 more 249 kits to 4 customers (Jesse / Finland), (Marcus / Sweden), (Danger Close / USA), (Alexander / USA), on 2-Dec-2011, please see attachement. But now i think i will loss that 4 kits also because i cannot feel that i can get any payment from Opforce “Ian Mazzochi”http://www.airsoftgasblowbacks.com . So i can’t ship out anything more because he own me money. Not to talk the old list amount, the current project he own me is another US$3,321.37(pls see attached file) , we argued for whole month and i said this, he said that, nothing was settled, so this is a deadend~! Now his website is still using my photos and receive payment, you can check that in facebook (Airsoftgasblowbacks Gbb). He is selling his own products but i don’t know why if they can do they should use their own photos, not mine.
Our workshop have been already closed and there is no more DG, I have changed my job and nothing related to airsoft. I don’t have any relationship with Ian Opforce http://www.airsoftgasblowbacks.com and any other issue about him is none of my business~! Please help to spread it out all around the world~! Thank you for supporting DG in the past.
What i know is that there are at lease 5 poeple paid him and cannot get the stuffs. Pls take care before you pay him.
From what I gather, there have been issues between DG himself and the fellow who runs/manages the Airsoft Gas Blowbacks website, which takes and processes the orders for DG guns. I don’t know if the AGBB will continue to make DG-style guns independant of DG, but for now it seems to be prudent to wait before purchasing from them.
We’ll see if more news comes from this.
