It distracted my play, so I dont do it any more.
But good luck with the new product.

I can see it now. New mags everywhere. New mags everywhere!!!!!
I'm curious to know what he's making myself....he's gotta be up to something good to buy two brand new CNC machines. I have a million and one ideas myself for all kinds of stuff but I'm just too short on time to make it happen.....Simion sure has had his hands on allot of the equipment that makes our sport so great today.
He will also be at Tunaball 7
Simon is Manike on here? right?
he just posted that he will be reveiling something at legends
Hello everyone, and thank you all so much for the support. The support I have had from the community since I left KEE has simply left me mind blown. That's one of the reasons why I am so excited to be able to give back with the open source concept.
Some of what I am doing will need to remain a secret until it lands, but where I can, I am open to answer any questions you may have. Starting with yes, manike = Simon
I still think it could be mag related
I kind of figured this was where he was going with this (manike has been very helpful with technical data on his own forum), but I dared not openly hope it for fear of jinxing myself.
Exercising my rare skill of reading comprehension, he's indicating the "opening" of specifications for stuff that isn't part of a core gun per se. So that probably means all the stuff in the ecosystem around a gun.
I mean he literally gave two examples already with the Trracer (ironically two projects I've considered). That gun... I swear. So much untapped potential.
Anyways, looking across the landscape, you've got barrels (which he's already helped us out with), grips, possibly triggers, and external body mods (feed options). Even a regulator (which is PAINFULLY missing from the Trracer) is fair game. Maybe a core gun which has space on it which accepts user-designed add-ons for which the specifications are open.
Hopefully the specifications and any files will be provided in some open format, or something can be sucked into a freely available tool, as it doesn't make a lot of sense to drop a couple hundred dollars on CAD software to design a $10 part.
That's half the battle.
The other half of the battle is *actually getting stuff made*. That so far seems to be the unspoken nugget...
"Accuracy by aiming."
Definitely not on the A-Team.
Beat me to it. I was trying to do the rounds
Open source files available for download so you can make your own are on my website
Haha!! When the hint was "something big" I instantly thought of the unicorn 100rd agitated hopper that all pump players seem to be wanting. Good deal!
Holy mother of all that is good & pure !!!!!
I have been waiting for someone to come out with (come up with ) a 100 round Halo shell
where u can use the internals from any halo type loader
also luvin the sloped front nose design on it , looks good & increases the odds of getting a ball skid
