Detail Round Up: Milsig’s 2012. Part 1 - HEAT
Milsig has hit it out of the park with a whole slew of new product announcements. We’ve combed through all the information to get the details organized for you in one place. The announcements are impressive in piecemeal but even more so all stacked up together. We have not seen this level of innovation from them since the original K-series was launched back in 2007, and they have just blown it away (literally!)
The hottest announcements include the Paradigm MK2, FXR Pistol Kits and the biggest surprise, the M17 including the new HEAT Core.
We’ve tried to be as detailed as possible but not all specs and prices have been released yet.
The FINAL pricing and product details for the new products will be released via the NEW milsig.com website…which is another week or 2 from completion.

So until then, this is the next best thing. READ ON!
The HEAT is on!
That brings us to Milsig’s new “High Efficiency Air Technology” or aptly referred to as just “HEAT.” The Heat core is a blow-forward spool valve that can operate at around 500-600 PSI and eliminates the cocking arm. Just gas’er up, safety off, and go! Milsig says the HEAT will require less maintenance and improve consistency and accuracy. HEAT also eliminates all external air lines and runs the air directly out the back of the marker through the regulator in a Milsig Air Through Stock (MATS) system. The best part of all, is that HEAT will be offered as an upgrade for all previous generation Milsig markers.
Historically Milsig has used a “blow-back” valve similar to that found in most Tippmann & BT type markers. These older valves were great for durability and simplicity but not for air efficiency or precision. Not to mention all the hoses you have decorating your receiver body.
