The availability of quality paint is definitely the limiting factor with these things- I wanted to use my Khaos in a scenario game earlier this month and was barred from doing so because the event had no .50 paint available. The field I usually go to allows me to use my own paint with it, mostly because the owner finds the thing fascinating. When I have been able to use it, I've actually had the opposite problem you suggested- if anything, contemporary .50 paint is too
brittle. It may be partially the gun's fault, but I'm seeing lots of barrel breaks and no bounces, at least so far. When the thing does connect, though, it's pretty darn fun. https://youtu.be/aJXM6j8DygY
