Will the MCG and MCG Pro Grips be sold as a stand alone ?

Postby Finstern » Mon May 14, 2018 11:34

Let's say I buy one of the Gunfighter tabletop model with a MCG RU or KG12 Grip now, will I be able to buy a MCG PRO EN grip later on to change the grip ?
Or it is not in your prevision to have stand alone stock of grip sold on the European website before years ?

Hello Finstern,

Yes, if you buy GF now you will be able to buy MCG Pro later and use it with the same base.
Standalone grips are planned for the next EU batch.

Hello Finstern,
I don't have ETA on Z axis module yet. I am working on pre-order functionality of the website. As soon as we know the date of availability of the module for EU, I would like to open pre-ordering.

Some time ago we signed up for updates on the MCG Pro for Black Mamba Mk3. Are such reservations still valid?

I understand there's no working firmware for the new grip, but I can't imagine software being an unsurpassable problem. Will you import a batch of Black Mamba compatible grips, even if the firmware needs to be updated further?

Same goes for grip extensions. Will there be any options for Black Mambas with or without the new grip?

I'm going to Shenzhen, and would have the possibility to buy things in person. I contacted them, but they don't seem to sell the grip at the moment at least. However, I'm not so worried about it not working (I'm sure it will at a later date if the issue is firmware, or I could just add an arduino in between), my problem is the VAT and shipping.

Hello Radsoc,
Correct, there is no firmware available for the MCG grip for Black Mamba. Therefore, I do not expect it to be available for EU customers this year.

Currently, for EU market I expect to have the first batch of stand-alone MCG only for Gunfighter Mk.I and Mk.II in August/September this year as well as extension sets (Pro pack). Z axis adaptors are in that list as well. But nothing is confirmed yet.

Whether the following shipments to EU will contain any new products/variants is not known to me.
