I'm with the above sentiments, but since we're just "what if'ing" and wishing, I'd say I'd like the tolerances to be more exact. That way, one thing will for sure fit another thing with no guessing. I'd also like to see a smaller dimension Kingman gun.

I agree with Barron though, Kingman definitely has a niche cut out for itself and it would be industrial suicide to jump out of that niche. What they should do is leave the spyder line alone and add a different line. Then they can make their name in two different markets (stay away from the Spyder name, because as was stated, the name alone tends to make people shy away.)

im going to have to agree with viking. they should make a higher end line with clamping feednecks, lower profiles, eyes, lowered pressure, and even ep maybe something comparible to a BL or angel, just something new and inovative.

who knows maybe people will respect spyders alot more if they just keep the name the same and make some badass guns

Alot of people are going milsim, would like to see some spyders also come in flat/dust black as well

Really like the camo pilot i got for woodsball

Need built in rails on top or even sides, for scopes, that sort of thing, alot of guys use offset adaptors for accesories anyways, depending on which side they shoot

Thats what the MR2 line was for milsim......

Personaly the two most important thing that i think kingman should do is make there marker top cocking with lighter microswitches. This would A) make the looks of the marker much more attractive B) Would help improve performance without alot of cost if any to kingman.

if eyes were integrated into a Kingman body with the correct board and functionality (Electra '06 hopefully) when i was searching for an answer for chopping (w/o need for a new hopper) i would still be using my "Classic" in my tournament ventures...

i have and will always love Kingman markers for what they are; entry level and basic, tinkerer's welcome, and let's see what bad-ass thing you can turn this into.

if you want my opinion, i want a Classic full body (two simple stacked tubes, fatty internals preferred but not likely) with vertical feed, eyes and an ESP frame that comes with usable options (i.e. - PSP ramping). that would be my heaven!

the rest of the mod's people already have or can do very easily and most would enjoy doing if they are anything like me.

p.s. - also a link in the Manual to the "Spyder Online Community" (KUSA) for a neverending quick and somewhat precise encyclopedia to most of their inane and very repeated questions couldn't but help you, Kingman USA.

I want to see a redesign of the AMG for the tournament scene. Make it with tournament mode and real break beam vision and not the bouncebeam that they offer on their new line. I know that this would equal more money but I don’t think Kingman reaches out enough to the people that like their products starting off and want to go to the next level.

Although this would probably have to be a whole marketing scheme behind this next level product lineup. They would need to change the mentality of why would I want to purchase another Spyder when I can get “X” upgrade or “X” marker.

They need to do better marketing to change the mentality of the paintball society. They have to make it cool to be seen with an AGG Spyder.

If any of us were to post any type of Spyder or Kingman product in the news section of PBN we would be toast. This is due to the overhype and the mentality that needs to be changed using marketing and promotion. Utilize their footprint in the NPPL scene.

I think Kingman should send me markers to R&D and make it cool to sport a Spyder.
