Kingman still exists. KEE bought the Spyder line of Kingman. Lets not get this confused, Kingman still exists as a company just minus the Spyder line of markers.

So what companies are still non-KEE? CCI, CCM, Dye/Proto, PE, what else? GOG, GI Milsim, others? And does anyone know the market share for each company?

You said it brother!
I can't begin to tell you how many hearts I broke with my Spyder. You'd get stares from the Angel/Cocker and Mag guys wanting to know what's inside that lowly little Spyder that just sent them to the dead box.

Arthur took what was basically a failed design, tweaked it some, and turned it into a real platform for a simple, high performance gun.
Most of the Spyder's problems were "operator error", and nothing more.

I didn't think it was possible to like you more. I was wrong.

In terms of the news story... meh? Willing to bet this is just business as usual going forwards, though it does mean KEE will have markers capable of shooting FS rounds from a mag for the first time ever (I believe).

Don't count on it.

Kingman was getting serious about offering markers to put FS rounds downrange, while KEE, a round paint manufacturer, has absolutely no interest in doing that. Case in point: They developed the Dfender instead of a mag-fed answer to the DAM.

Is this finally the death rattle of Metric hardware and Spyder threaded barrels? One can only hope..

Ooh, I didn't think about the FS vs regular paint angle. Take one of the major FS marker manufactures out of play. Smart move.
