I heard that there is supposed to be a Smart Parts Russian Legion Ion coming out. Does anyone know when? Thanks.

I actually heard that the Legion aren't with Smart Parts anymore. Not so sure they'd make an Ion for a non-sponsored team, but who knows?

Yea RL is now with bob long. So I highly doubt Smart parts would make RL ions. But it is smart parts tho

One season with SP was enough for them to realize the NXT's were crap. ;)

Hey Claus, out of curiosity, why wouldn't they try to have Vices/Protege's? I just don't see why they wouldn't go with a familiar platform (RL Alias, anyone?), and instead go with another single tube gun.

I think they DID like the size of the NXT's, but the way they shot was just too dissimilar from the timmies but that's just speculation. I would suppose it's due to the size... they both shoot fairly similarly. IDK what they wouldn't shoot Timmies if they play xball though... Marqs are significantly harder to clean the breach than timmies.

I think a large part of it is the fact that the Marq is a completely closed system. In otherwords it's a lot harder for crap can't get inside, no paint, water, dirt, sand, etc. Just as well, I agree with Claus in that they liked the feel of the NXT's, and the size and feel of the Marq is a lot closer to that of the NXT.

yeah but they did do very good with them.

it will be interesting to see how they do this year without federov though.

Psh, their guns were holding them back. Imagine what they can do with GOOD guns! :eek:

I was thinking that as well, Leed, but I couldn't remember (for some reason) what the term was for that. Meh, we'll see... ;)

We're not hating on Smart Parts... we're rephrasing our hatred for SP instead by saying we're glad RL is away from them. ;)

I wonder, BL should put out a RL Marq, what do you think it'll look like? I know it's gonna be red/black... but beyond that?

Nah, I'd call this flaming. ;)

All I'm saying is this is an OLD and TIRED discussion, one that half the people believe one way, and the other half believe the other way, and 98% of the people in this forum (or any other) weren't even playing paintball when this whole thing started, let alone understand what exactly happened. So, I'm stopping it before it starts.

Now, back on track...Of course they'll come out with a gun. Since when does a pro team named Russian (Boston/Red) Legion or Dynasy, or Ironman, or [insert name here] NOT get a new gun every time they switch teams?

I'm glad I'm not an idiot... otherwise I could never provoke you out like this... ;)

Right, but what do you think they'd do for the gun? They've had a lot of designs for the Marq platform, and a lot of them would look good based upon their previous choices. Obviously some sort of specialized milling as well, but what more metal can you take off of it to do some of the radical designs they've had in the past?

the RL Marq if they even make one, will be simply milled if you look at the RL timmy it was very simple, BL doesnt do much in the way of overly milled team guns, look at all of the other team guns they have made I think the craziest would be the ND timmy or the Infamous timmy.

Aha! okay now watch the rest of my post be correct, black marker red accents, a jewel (ooooo a jewel) and maybe the RL logo lightly milled into the side.

Beats me... :confused:

Red/blue'd be cool. I'm still not entirely convinced that they wouldn't use Vices, though. The articles I've seen haven't claimed which marker, only that it'll be a BL gun.

On pbn the owner of RL stated they are shooting custom milled RL marqs, the design is drawn out and awaiting final approval.
