I was just sitting around thinking of things I would have liked to see kingman improve on as 2011 is right around the corner. Thinking about their market position, I decided to start a list:

Improved MR1 w/ clamping feedback, EKO Valve, and stand CA thread that the mag screws into

E-Trigger version of the MR4

Low pressure mechanical version of the MR4

Regulator for low pressure conversion that looks like a magazine and fits the MR1 & MR4

Mechanical trigger that can be put on the Electra and Pilot.

Different bore size backs for the electra barrel

Optional comfortable wrap around grips for the Electra and Pilot

Players Kits w/ HPA

Add suspender loops to your 4+1 and 6+1 Harness
Make the 2 Pod in camo and make a 3 Pod

A Revised gravity hopper along the lines of the Tacamo ARC or Primo hoppers that ships in your player packs.

I'm sure it's threads like this that lead them on the way to the Electra and Pilot markers of today. Seems what the consumer wanted finally kicked in a few years ago and i think they've gained a bit of respect from the community in doing so -

oddly, after reading this thread, i check the spyder.tv main site. it is interesting that the classic series section the Fenix ACS has popped up under products. So has the Raven guns....I wonder what they have planned for 2011.

Just putting it out there, I would buy an Electra in an MR body in a heartbeat. Especially if it had a single trigger and a goggle compatible stock ie: i can actually sight down the top of the marker because the stock isn't hitting my mask.

That makes me wonder why there aren't more scenario style pumps out there too?

hammer?

yeah they could use the old hammer design (single tube) or even just use the same stacked tube bodies that the regular markers use

the old hammer design would be nice as long as they didnt mil-sim it up and keep it simple... A drop in kit for the stbb would be nice too

Thats funny, I was just thinking it would be cool to see it MilSim'd. Difference of opinion I guess :)

The whole point of the Hammer was a simple, light, easy to use pump marker. A milsim version would be none of those things. That doesn't mean you can't attach your own rails to a Hammer style marker, you just have to be careful and know what you're doing.

or the body material has to be thicker to accept a little drilling and thread tapping...

However, I could see accessory kits that could be "bolt on" too. That might be something for them to think about...

A remake of the hammer III would be interesting…

It would be nice to see the Electra with an internal gas line. It would give it a much cleaner look. A more ergonomic grip frame would also be welcomed.
