I have a interesting concept in idea in mind. I have made quite some paintball part over te time. what if it was all placed into 1 thing a open Marker project that is "fully" 3d printed based on some basic tippmann parts to start out with. that haves option to use T15 mags, Tipx, TMC, helix, haves a lokbot option. can use Tippmann stocks and shrouds from the t98, a5 x7's and is open to use some custom 3d designed ones as well. does that sounds cool? do keep in mind you still need to think about 2 or 3 rolles of 3d filament to make one at least if you use a lot of 3d printed parts like the shroud and buttstock. so it's not exactly a free maker... but it does open it up for anyone to play magfed. or at least make one from basic tippmann parts. and customise it with STEP files. so what do you think?
this of course will be a big project! with a lot of big parts to be printed and prototyped. so some donations for this project would be more and welcome other wise it will not happend anytime soon. but im more than confident enough that I can pull it off. if a thing like a FGC-9 or WTF-9 can be made that shoots 9mm rounds than well lets say making a paintball maker should not be that hard haha.
then some would say, why do make this thing and ask nothing for it. you should put up for sale. well I think that there is no marked for that.. it would take quite some time and material to print. and can that compete to a mass produced one in price realistically? I don't really see people pay for that.
but the idea is that anyone could make is even at places were regular magfed may look to "real" for there laws. so I do think about making one in a more nerf like design or at least less "real" than you could play with out worrying about bull crap laws preventing you playing the game of magfed.
and besides that is opens a whole new world up for customisation and personalisation
