    Looks very similar to the Gun X.... Is the Field King related?

    States that it is GunX remade. $259.00 is steep.

    I'm in the market for one, but not at that price.

    While I can understand the 'sticker shock' I'll say this, as an owner of a GunX and one of the old Day's End pistols if I was in the market for a new primer pistol I would spend the money. I realize it's $50-60 more than the GunX used to sell for but I have pissed away $50-60 in a bar many times and had little to show for it. The GunX is a solid pistol and one I look forward to owning for years to come.

    A quality pistol no doubt, but for $50.00 less and with a lifetime warranty too I'll take my Alpha 209 over it.

    Who makes it? Where is it made? It is like comparing the retriever-launchers..the ones made in Korea are crap and the one made in the USA is excellent. Remember for those of you who bought the Canadian assembled Asian sourced bumper launchers now defunct. Dogtra still maintains a high standard we will see how Garmin does long term with TT? IMO. I would buy the rebuilt NEF. A gunsmith can always fix.

    Have had a GunX for 5 years and had too many shots run thru it to count. Have had friends and kids use without ever any trouble. I keep saying one of these days I need to clean it or oil it or something but then I just put it up and forget about till the next training session. Yeah it's a lot of money but in 5 years of trouble free use you will be way ahead.

    How's that Gunx lifetime warranty working out for all of us? The warranty is only as good as the company offering it.
