I wanna see something that makes engineering sense from a PAINTBALL standpoint, not 'How can we make this look like an AR?"

What about an FG-42 inspired marker? Side-feed mags. Or something that uses a polymer magazine with a constant tension spring?

Or maybe a side-feeding U shaped mag with a constant tension spring feeding First Strikes, With a 20 round feed on top for normal paintballs, a Dogleg stock off the bottomline, a vertical adapter for 3.5-9oz co2 tanks, and ION/Mag/Tippmann internals?

By the way, I actually LIKE the BT-15, because it's design has some damn inspiration behind it, it's not JABB dressed up to look like an AR.
I remember when I started getting into paintball and the Armotech WG series were overpriced, hideously Bad blowbacks dressed up like ARs. I stand unimpressed, a Decade later.

One thing I'll say is. It would be much more aesthetically pleasing to have the long banana styled mag guns like ak clones or etc. Because the size of the paintballs its impossible to get usable amounts of shots out of a real steel sized M4 mag. The dmag drum is a great idea for that. The box mag is good too. It would be nice to have some more bad guy guns too. Oh and some bull pups. I'd like to see a steyre Aug look alike. Or maybe like a l85

While i would like to see the sames things as you do, it doesnt change what i said. Doesnt matter
I disagree with the statement "Popularity is just the fallacy that "one million idiots can't be Wrong' ". Popularity is simply how appealing and liked something is to the general population. It doesnt not say anything about truth or fallacies and does not claim to. Popularity is based on opinion. And opinion has nothing to do with truth. It is merely what we believe to be truth or what is true relative to each being.

What does it mean from the business perspective? It means money. While i'd like to see some more innovation from bigger companies, ultimately the bottom line for many businesses is money and that's how many companies are going to base their opinions.

The should develop a .43 cal "FN" Browning Highpower ..... A classic - like the 1911. They are much more compact than the Rap4? ramx50 sig 226. It shouldn't be a problem (right). Actually the .43 P99 and the glock are smaller than the P226.

not going to happen after years of asking APS to increase thier product line, and many emails regarding improvments to the products (hell even the oil they sold with thier markers was wrong) they have gone down the airssoft road...........the most ardent users of .43 have all pretty much moved on now.

i'd like to see more .50 pistols. .50 is a great caliber for small arms in terms of usable ranges, and .50 paint can be purchased in prices that are not crazy high like the .43 paint.

Maybe a desert eagle in .50?

Not to mention fields actually allow it. Unlike .43

Tried using the reseller/dealer form a while back and we haven't heard back. If it wasn't so bloody common with new companies I'd say it's a bad sign.
