I think people are drawn to it because they want to jump on the "playing war" bandwagon. There's plenty of markers that use standard military components. The majority of markers use either .45 or M16 style grips. Quite a few of those markers come in right/left or offset feeds. X-7s looks like real guns, but I can definitely say there are plenty of other markers out there that feel more like the real thing. Tippmann's older blowbacks, other older blowbacks like those made by Montneel, even Sheridan or Palmer's markers that certainly feel more like the real deal. Tippmann SMG-60s and 68s are about as close as you can get.

The heaviest production marker ever made (that I know of) was the VM-68/PMI-III which weighed in at a little over 5lbs. X-7s are actually a full pound lighter. VM68s were three tubes in height and actually a bit smaller than an inline X-7. The size or weight of a marker doesn't bother me. I kind of like a little heavier of a setup. It's knowing that the X-7 is large and heavy when it doesn't need to be that bothers me. It's just large to fulfill it's mil-sim branding.

The X7 can be right for the milsimers. Other than that, its an A-5 in a different body. It just wasn't designed to be better in performance against the A-5, just making it more mil-simable.

Tippmann makes far more money building a half-decent marker with dozens of aftermarket mods made out of plastic, then they did selling great markers that didn't really need any aftermarket upgrades. It's all business now.
Yeah I use an M-16 grip, wanna fight about it?

Best webcomic ever.

I love my x7. It is reliable and has never let me down. Only down side i it is a bit of a gas hog.
