Why do they all look the same now? I liked them better when they were sort of unique. Now it looks like they just used the same body for all the guns with different front blocks and colors...

You guys need to remember that milling, eyes, cool anno, new designs cost more money to make thus driving the price up, kingman makes a lot of their bodies similar so they do not have to retool to mass produce them, they also keep the prices low by doing this, hence Kingman having the Newbie market by the horns. So when they release a new version of an old marker expect only slight cosmetic changes, this keeps the same trend that they have followed for years, and it has been said many times before, if a kingman gun came out to compete with the high end market (a spimmied VS2 for example) it would flop miserably because of the association of the kingman name with low end look at the primal, that was a solid contender for the BKO but it flopped and the BKO did great, mostly because of the kingman name. Why enter into a new market that A. they have little to no experience with, and B. they would only end up failing due to the name associated with the marker and C. they have this market by the balls... I think just about every beginner out there has either shot a spyder at one point in their paintball career, Kingman is making money by not changing their guns much, why should they change it up?

Truff to TRB.

Really, it seems no one remembers that before a couple years ago, all the Spyders looked alike until the Rodeo came out. It's just within the last two years that the guns looked different, and even then, they all had the same basic body. And still, they all operate the same, so throw a reg on it, add a new valve, add an electric frame for the mechs, etc etc, and you have your own DIY gun....

Although I don't prefer the new body style, I can't see a three page thread of everyone *****ing about how ugly they are now...Like the barron said, Kingman is holding onto the new player market with their guns. Shoot, look at the MR series....can anyone honestly say they don't look like most every scenario style marker out there from a gazillion scenario gun maker?
