Here it is with a NF for size comparison. It still has the features that makes the DCIT a DCIT, a vertical plunger tube that is located within the handle with an RSCB running along the top. Part of the plastic paintball gun that formed the grip and trigger mechanism have been retained.
The biggest change is the catch and trigger mechanism. The old DCIT used a variation of the +bow catch. This version uses a rainbow catch. The trigger is still linked to a bike brake cable, but unlike the original, the Mk 2 pulls the catch instead of pushing it, this has greatly increased the consistency in which system works. (The original would simply not work on occasion, the new version hasn't failed at any point thus far.) Additionally the cable now runs underneath the paintball gun grip, making the DCIT even more compact.
The RSCB now consists of half inch PVC running through an end cap at an angle and directly nests the CPVC barrel.
It shoots far. Questions? Flames? I'd also like to mention that I know there are a few people in the NIC that are interested in making blasters with the DCIT layout. Please do! It facilitates an incredibly fun rushing focused play-style. However, I kindly ask that when you make a blaster with this layout, don't try to completely mimic what I've done. Try something slightly or drastically different and unique, I'd love to see what you come up with!
