Cocking handle doesn't interfere with line of sight.
Gas-transfer system is the biggest leap in Nelson valve design in, well, ever.
Player-friendly accessories (mag changer etc)
Off the shelf parts. (Phantom internals, CCI seals can be used throughout)

You can use the R7 as a pistol or add a longer barrel and various gizmos to make it feel more like a Phantom. You can't really pistolize a Phantom.

The VKC duck probably fixes the chopping issue of the gen 1 Redux. It still has the liquid-siphoning problem in the valve.

I won't get into any more details here; I've posted ad nauseum in the Redux, CCI and Avratech sections.
Great points. Thanks for this.
