completely agree with the points mentioned, i tried to do this with an emc kit on my geo 3, bought a fancy offset rail, a scope, a laser, foregrip etc but all wholly unpractical once the goggles are on. (check profile pic) but they do look cool, especially milsig. I wouldn't buy one though, but certainly one of the best looking milsim markers out there (but screw playing magfed with other people using tourny markers!)Is it just me, or are mil-sim markers really poorly suited for paintball?
You'd think that basing a gun design on a real-steel equivalent would be a good idea, but soldiers don't wear bulky masks, real firearms need the stock level with the barrel to cope with the recoil from an explosive round and bullets have enough accuracy to make use of proper scopes/sights.
We on the other hand, do wear goggles/masks, that make it next to impossible to rest your cheek on a stock and sight along the top of the gun, shoot guns with minimal recoil to absorb so can get away with a stock/tank fixed at any point and shoot ammunition that varies in shape so greatly as to make sights more of an inconvenience than asset.
It seems to me that anything with a stock that's in line with the barrel is unnecessarily putting form over function and forces you to twist your neck to try and sight along the gun. A 'normal' paintball gun layout of bottle/stock coming off an ASA at the bottom of the grip frame seems a far better layout, as when shouldering the bottle it automatically brings the body/barrel of the gun into your eyeline.
