The KL is like adding a new operating system with some upgrades.
The KBAs are the ultimate bolt action paintball rifle. They are magical.
We hit a perfect combination of stock, barrel, valve, porting, sights, magazine, loading system, and operation. We're glad you guys like them.
None of them has been routine to me either. I get attached to them too.
The KBA stands for K series Bolt Action. The production run rifles are also designated as M-2020. Whatever the version, the M-2020 can be adapted to bolt, lever, or pump.
There hasn't been a KBA/KL yet, although there is one planned in SS. It will be a SSL M-2020 and there will be several SSP M-2020s.
The KBA is the product of years of planning by Jake and I. We missed our target on producing the rifle for several years, but we now have a working system. The SS guns are now in the doldrums of production solutions now.

Wow, I keep looking forward to the SS guns!! Ah I so want a SS KBA...would you advise ordering a Brass KBA now, or waiting for a SS one?

What exactly would a KBA/KL entail? A lever action with a 'straight-pull' bolt action handle ? A k-series convertible between the two operating systems? Or did I misread your sentence?



For the record, I voted for a KBA.

wow...that would be sooo amazing. Just to ask, no such thing as getting an octagon barrel in the future steel bodies is there?

That would be awesome. Imagine that, plus underfed springfeed, and Tank or 12 grams in Stock? And a brassballa stock....closest to a replica of a Winchester 1894 that you can get.

Did you just call my KL a whore!?

Tough call...but I'd have to go with KBA, since I've been about | | close to pulling the trigger about 3 times. Love my K2 and the KBA is like that but on crackroids. I suspect when Stainless becomes a real option, I won't be able to resist.

I would love to have a recreation of my grandfather's rifle.
