I've looked and admired the Phenom and There is one thing with it that drives me insane. That would be it's magwell and it's puny looking magazine. I'm thinking that the next generation of this marker needs to be redesigned to be a bit more modder/ aesthetic friendly.

The Internals are good and should stay but the mag needs to go. I was thinking that they should do away with the fixed magwell and have it attached to the trigger kinda like the lower receiver of the M16/M4 family of small arms. With that idea, they could make several versions of it so you can change the trigger and magwell to an M16 to an AK style which would allow the use of real AK mags or an MP5 style for those that like their SMG styles.

Aside from that, I know that this marker is reliable and effective just like it's older brother.

Any thoughts or comments.

I'm not certain I see the problem here.  The magwell/magazine is interchangeable and several Tippmann/Spec Op alternatives already exist while other after-market companies make replacements as well.

I didn't see that you can change the mag well on the phenom but the idea is still cool

Actually, I overstated the availability of extra mags/wells a bit.  While several are available from Tippmann they all replicate pistol/SMG calibers as opposed to assault rifle calibers.  I was looking for a mag/well combo I saw a while back that provided the M4/M16 appearance but I couldn't find it.  (It was from an after-market manufacturer and seemed to fit over the existing magwell.)
