I just noticed two things:
 
1. The M4 looks horrible. Its sad that they couldnt make a correct looking shroud.
2. The Phenom in the bottom right hand corner doesnt have TIPPMANN cast into it.

No. You can switch it into a saftey full auto mode, in which you mash the trigger three times in a second and it goes into full auto. Or something similar enough to that, I forget. I think I use ramping on mine, its been awhile.
 
Most, if not all, modes on the Phenom involve pulling the trigger x number of times a second, then it goes into three round burst, full auto, whatever. Its been over a year since I used mine last.

I'd also like to see a stripped-down marker that is still adaptable for milsim stuff(I have been known to mount a red-dot, might even do a stock in some cases). When I played, I tended to go for form over function. I like my tank mounted on the gun, I like to be able to easily add a regulator or possibly a vertical bottle (I had high hopes when the A-5 came out since it had a built-in vert adapter, sadly they never seemed to work w/ a tank over 9oz). It seems to me that tippmann used to build gun-like markers that felt familiar to shooters and had decent ergonomics but were still paintball guns and didn't have things like magazines and alowwed for performance upgrading instead of cosmetic and ergonomic.

I'm going to sound like an old fart, but the pro-carbine was excellent despite its lack of easy and affordable upgrades. The forend w/ built-in elbow allowed you to clean the breach and barrel without spilling paint. That was IMO a major bonus since it was simple to keep it in operation during paint exchange.

I'd love to get back into the game when I can afford it, and have been looking at a gun to replace my somewhat outdated 98 custom. The only thing I can think of that tippmann makes that would do what I want would have to be the newer 98 customs milled for an e-grip and ACT. I can have a cyclone feed and still access the breach for the inevable ball break, ACT should minimize them, I can still have a flatline if I choose, and if I were ever to add a stock I'd like that x-chamber that the bottle screws into. I love my 98 w/ palmers' stab.

Since the buyout and especially after the spec-ops partnership (and the Army. I'm 25 years old, I don't want to advertise the army logo if i'm not in it) it seems like tippmann just doesn't hit the nail on the head like it used to. Sure, they finally came out with a pistol, made a more effecient marker like the phenom, and have fixed some of the complaints about previous markers, but they haven't come out with the next pro-carbine or 98.
