Honestly I'd probably go with side saddle reg and a 12gram changer, or something just as interesting. Then decide if I like a stock on it or not.
I do want one of your regular barrels, but to be completely honest, I would jump on one of your barrels with dye UL threading, but with the UL threads far enough out to allow a whoosh tip past the pump handle. So like 8" of tight bore before the threading?

I'll think about the threaded tip barrels... personally I'd just prefer to make different bore size one piece barrels, and anything else I'd do custom.

As long as the threading is far enough out that it would allow attachments without interfering with the pump handle

Gas through grip would be cool. Is there any way to make it easily swappable from sidetap to gas through with the same valve, though? It would probably require a specialty ASA, too.

the through-frame air connector would be the same as the R7, NPT threaded so you can plug it to run sidetap air to vertical or so on

specialty ASA it would need for through-frame air, yes. it would be easy to do actually, I'd keep the four 10-32 mounting holes on the bottom of the frame and actually run air through one of them for the thru-frame air config

(I just checked this all on the drawings and I can totally do it!)

basically what the air path would look like (the long passage I'd drill from top and bottom and plug at the top with a weld or a screw). I'd like to use an on/off ASA but it complicates things for a few reasons I won't go into (unless I find away around them that I like).

this looks amazing this will be like the luxe of paintball guns oh and since the price went to 699 does that mean those who have already pre ordered will need to pay more?

nah, you lucky pre-order folks need not pay any extra for what I'm adding to the design, the higher pricetag is for new buyers to offset the cost of building the guns. actually the pricetag should be something like $900+ but I'll leave it where it is for now.
