does anyone know if tippmann is going to come up with an Sl-68 III? I figgure with the sl68II back out its only a matter of time before they make one with more modern features, (IE: a 98c style feedneck, a bottomline, buttstock mounting points, anything that would be nice in a milsim pump marker)

also, what do you think should be on an SL-68 III and why? Someone should make a poll after this thread is up for a month or so.

I don't really see them making a III. The II is a great, durable pump. I've got one of the originals that has never failed me. Adding more heavy crap to it kinda defeats the purpose of a pump and running light and fast

I never said more heavy crap though... I was kinda thinking having a flatline availible, or using polymer/magnesium/something in the grip frame construction, or having multiple picatinny rails.

I would like to see a better barrel on the two...I mean, they aren't terrible, but could definetly be better.

What I would like to see in an SL-68III are as follows:
* Under barrel pump handle (not around it).
* A5/X7 threaded barrel.
* Stock Barrel being the same as on the phenom (high quality, shoots through breaks well).
* The at rest position of the ball being just short of the barrel and held by a detent to prevent rollouts.
* The same choke design of velocity adjustment as previous SL-68s (It's easier to deal with than a rod down the barrel).
* Vertical ASA and standard 2 hole bottom line like on the A5. That way players could run vertical 12 grams, expansion chambers, or regulators. The 2 hole could mount drop forwards or various ASAs, ON/Offs, etc based on player preference.
* Weaver or dovetail rail on top to mount sights.
* M98 style replaceable feed neck.
* Ability to take existing stocks stocks (M98, A5, or X7).

* Under barrel pump handle (not around it). That would be nice, but not a deal breaker, since even a phantom comes stock with pump around barrel
* A5/X7 threaded barrel. Meh slip fit works ok. Palmers or J&J are really all ya need :P
* Stock Barrel being the same as on the phenom (high quality, shoots through breaks well). Shooting through breaks with a pump is always a trickier situation since you don't have the volume of rounds to help get the paint out.
* The at rest position of the ball being just short of the barrel and held by a detent to prevent rollouts. This is a problem with a lot of pumps. Palmer's with widgits helps, or a little dab of clear nail polish in the bore of the barrel
* The same choke design of velocity adjustment as previous SL-68s (It's easier to deal with than a rod down the barrel).
* Vertical ASA and standard 2 hole bottom line like on the A5. That way players could run vertical 12 grams, expansion chambers, or regulators. The 2 hole could mount drop forwards or various ASAs, ON/Offs, etc based on player preference.
* Weaver or dovetail rail on top to mount sights. Already a dovetail rail on there
* M98 style replaceable feed neck.
* Ability to take existing stocks stocks (M98, A5, or X7).

The ASA one would be kinda nice, but you can still put a 12g changer on it (I have). The others I'm kinda meh about

Basically you want Tippmann to make a Phantom with a UC kit, detents, and a standard velocity screw. If Tippmann could do it cheaper than CCI, which they probably could because they have the marketing/customer base to create a high enough demand for large batches of markers to be made, which in turn means cheaper production, they could very well add the next big step to the revival of pump paintball. The only thing I'd worry about is the overall quality of the marker, no offense to Tippmann.

Especially given Tippmann's recent track record of reliability

But there ability to push markers would do wonders for the pump community.
