Another thing to add would be an adjustable velocity with allen wrench verse a spring kit. The two main reasons I went with a milsig parapro over the TGR models is the consistency and ability to adjust my fps with an allen wrench. Above all I would say consistency should be the number one priority since magfed players need to make every shot count.

I would love to see a magfed marker based on the Gog Enmey platform.
Very smooth shooter. Mechanical no chop bolt.

adding a velocity adjuster is very easy, drill a hole in the back block and put a screw in and boom! mk2 cores are in fact one of the most consistent cores on the market right now(blow back wise), I've had several times where it was shooting +-5fps all day, refs were surprised. They have good machining and quality control. I really don't mind the spring change but the annoying thing is how tight the back block is on the gun, sometimes I have to pry it open. If it's just simple pull and out for all of them spring change is a good way to do it because I don't have to fine tune the velocity that much.

I think his whole point was NOT to have it be an AR lookalike. Something that is magfed but not intrinsically Milsim, purely function without excessive weight from useless aesthetic features.

Pretty much. Function over form.

That's why. I don't have any of that useless stuff on my M17. And also cut down the front shroud, and don't use the stock.
Nice and tight with an 8" barrel.

If you're going to make a space gun, at least make it a separate offering. I for one hate the speedball look.

Function over form, yes. Bright flashy colors and styling, no.

My biggest beef with magfed guns also.Too big and bulky for the most part
My associate team Valkyrie Company are using the TGR series after using one of the "other" companies magfeds kept failing on them.
I'm pretty impressed with the consistency and reliability after seeing them in use at our game last Sunday.My only complaint would be the velocity adjustment,other than that a pretty rock solid marker

The M17 CQC is only big and bulky if you allow it to be.
