How many of you would like to see Kingman make a new AFFORDABLE pump? What would you like to see in the new pup if they did make one?

I would like to see that, if they did it should use normal paint. Other then that if they made it for under $200 it would be good.

I would, and I'd like it to look like this:

The Azodin Kaos Pump (KP) is a very fine example of a pump design on a Spyder platform, although I'd get a real pump arm on there, not one that looks like a dildo.

Honestly, I think Kingman needs to look at a number of other things before they start thinking about adding a whole new product to their line.

- They have introduced a new pistol, but it's .43 caliber, which almost no one playing paintball in the US uses, and, it's not even being marketed to us, other than "hey, look at this" emails and announcements. Plus, it's priced at the same level as competitive products that allow the use of field paint.

- Their STBB design is good, but not at the price they offer. I had really hoped, when I saw the reduction on products this last cycle, that it would result in a lower cost of the markers they continued with. This did not happen. In a world where they are fighting for the market share of the person who has only just started moving up from rentals, they no longer have to only worry about Tippmann, like they used to. Now, there are a number of viable, low-cost alternatives, from some of the biggest names in paintball, that are using significantly different methods of operation from the Spyder. Markers like the SLG, PMR, Ion platform, etc. Why would someone purchase a $300 Spyder when they can buy a Vibe for $175, and usually get a starter package with it? I don't know about you, but working on an Ion platform is a ton easier than a Spyder, with it's 10-15 o-rings and multiple moving parts.

Kingman needs to figure these things out before they start a new product. Because, honestly, would you buy a new $250-$350 pump from Kingman, or would you go out and build a custom pump cocker from parts for less, or choose one of the other current pumps that are in the marketplace. Customers are going to be looking at these questions. Most current pump players wouldn't look twice at a Kingman pump, unless it was spectacular, and at an incredible price. New pump customers are going to be looking for what's the hot thing that all their friends have. Which market does Kingman satisfy?

Sorry, just my $0.02

i would like to have one but as Critical said would we buy a pump for more than $200? I see new ACI Mavericks being sold for $85 or new Cocker Pumps for $100
