Popularity is just the fallacy that "one million idiots can't be Wrong'
I wanna see something that makes engineering sense from a PAINTBALL standpoint, not 'How can we make this look like an AR?"
What about an FG-42 inspired marker? Side-feed mags. Or something that uses a polymer magazine with a constant tension spring?
Or maybe a side-feeding U shaped mag with a constant tension spring feeding First Strikes, With a 20 round feed on top for normal paintballs, a Dogleg stock off the bottomline, a vertical adapter for 3.5-9oz co2 tanks, and ION/Mag/Tippmann internals?
By the way, I actually LIKE the BT-15, because it's design has some damn inspiration behind it, it's not JABB dressed up to look like an AR.
I remember when I started getting into paintball and the Armotech WG series were overpriced, hideously Bad blowbacks dressed up like ARs. I stand unimpressed, a Decade later.
