I'm going to talk so much trash about Caramtech, what a bunch of losers seriously. Rap4 does deserve flak for stringing people along for so long, I remember getting excited about D-Mags two years ago. Don't tell us until you're ready.

now tippmann has been a follower for a while, they were asked a while back about doing a pistol they said there is NO market for a paintball pistol....well the T8 came out and had HUGE exposure.....a couple months later the TPX came out. They were told to use a spool valve like marker, they said no
well the Tm7 and Tm15 came out.....couple months later the Phenom came out
the tippmann family no longer owns Tippmann, its owned by some golf guy now he is in it for the money and less for innovative paintball stuff
hence the cross over and not a mag fed marker..... well there.....is....one......shhhhhh......

but im assuming they are waiting to release it after they see how mag fed takes off, they had some troubles with it
Years. YEARS later.

If Caramtech actually owns the patent then its no fault of theirs. They have every right to stop Rap4. Even if they patented the mag after Rap4 announced their D-Mags, although sleezy and underhanded, its still Rap4s fault for not patenting their design first.

You can fight that, but we are now a first to patent country, so it's their own fault if they didn't. They could probably get away with being grandfathered in since their updates have been public and thus date stamped.

I think the key factor is the concept/design phase. To the best of my knowledge, Carmatech did their design work in secret (since nobody had even heard of them until PB extrav.). So, it would come down to who conceptualized / designed it first (and has documentation to support such claims).

In other words, if RAP4 has documented proof that they developed theirs, independently, before Carmatech filed for patent then, they have a chance. Otherwise, they are at Carmatech's mercy.

Born4Evil seriously sounds like the devil himself, and its awesome. That gun is hands down the most badass gun in my mind.
