Now that being said, how many .68 cal markers exist already? I'd pick a conservative number and say at LEAST 2 MILLION.

That means, those 2 MILLION markers now have to be replaced with one that can "chamber" [for the lack of a better term] the smaller paintball.

Every .68 cal marker....from BE to LUXE will either;
1. have to have some kind of 'chamber insert' installed to reduce the size
2. Barrel[s] in the new caliber
3. be completely redesigned to work with the new paint.

I smell a feeble attempt to spike company profits in this campaign........
