Milsim markers - poor design for paintball?

For 10 shot tube reloading see "agentsmith's miltecg2" video on youtube, trick with those 10 shot spring feeds supposedly is to mill out a hole just in front of where the spring locks back so you can lock the spring, pour in the tube, release the spring. you have to make the spring a bit fatter so it doesn't pop out of the hole though.

This was mine,, was a bit rough in the finish but worked very well. Also the white plastic attached to follower acted as a spring guide to stop the spring popping out. And on the marker looked like this.
Wish i had never sold it, worked better than both my tiberius markers!

pfffft Gomstar, dont dare ask the magfed comminuty if you can use a 10round tube . . they go bloody mental and get all agro.

I wanted to use a pump with stick feed . . NO. They want to play soldiers and they only want a certain way of loading those 10 shots to be used, even though it would be the same game of paintball.

Was really keen to give magfed a real good go, but they are getting so anal over it, its not worth the time and investment. They cant see this though. They think loading your paint in from a magwell is 10000x better than loading it in via a tube in the top.

Its a shame because they are limiting a niche corner of a niche market of a niche sport.
No way.. dude,,,i was like going to make a hole new design ,,based on a mech ..with a ten shot tube on the side,,,my god..
mag feed players are really turning into airsofters...< sorry mate > he he he LOL..

i just cant belive this,, its unreal...i know i have been turned away from a few mag games,,,even though i had my tac cap cat down to 20 balls and i was using one of my mech pups..

but they did not like the fact that i could load in under 2 seconds why they where fumbling with there mags..

ok said i...so i got my box mag out...you cant use that they said...why said i.. its a magazine,,,,yet there where other players using boxmags.... this type of thing really really bugs me...as at the end of the day it is just playing soldiers..

me i want to play paintball...ive done my bit in the mob...i have no desire to play soldiers...
like i say it bugs me...

so.. to get up there nose.. i could make a sten type smg... that has a ten shot tube in the side...again just the simple plastic tube..< faster loading > i could even turn round and say .. the best and greatest smg ever made,,,the greatest and most loved by the troops who used it..< the best test >

namly the owen smg,, just had a tube on top of the action...this is where the mag went...like a mini bren gun if you like...\or like a sten gun but with the mag just sticking out of the top...

when i see the name mag feed event.. it means just that...oh well....next project will be a system that lets me use..side feed ripclip... then a ten shot tube,,,then a normal hopper on top...with just a few twsits of a allen key...

and i have worked out a way to load the ten shots tube ..really quickly...

roll on next year,,

ps.. i think we should have a game,, ten shot tube vs mag feeds....
