I want a cheap, light ergonomic marker that has decent reliability.
In other words, I want a G5 except with a TechT L7 bolt stock and no bolt-stick problems. That would be ideal.
I would also like to see the Reflex Rail be replaced with a Proto Matrix again (like THAT'S ever going to happen) as well as the PMR to have a 14" barrel and the Ironmen trigger.
For the next Etek, I wish they had built-in flow controls. Not adjustable like the Ego11 because that's expensive, but fixed and simply a part of the manifold because that's cheap and super easy to do.
Lastly, I'd love to see a super cheap ergonomic marker with all the corners cut where they could be. This means:
GRN Frame, eye covers, lever-clamping feedneck (friberglass reinforced nylon)
Super simple Ion internals (or TechT L7 bolt, just not a shitty dump-valve).
14" one-piece barrel that's COMPLETELY done on a lathe (no exterior milling required whatsoever) with decent porting
LED Board with a microswitch
Ribbon Eyes (I'm actually Okay with ribbon eyes provided you don't need to take the grip frame off ever for routine maintenance)
On/Off/Purge ASA with center macroline fitting like on the Etek4/Droid
Trigger with a good shape too it. Doesn't need to be magnetic or have super awesome bearings, just a good shape.
Standard regulator adjustable from the bottom with an allen key
Clapper solenoid actuating a valve for the solenoid, or the super cheapo solenoid found in the PMR/eXTCy.
I'd be willing to pay $300-$350 for this easily.
In other words, slight changes to the 2011 PMR would result in this marker, and the eXTCy is closer already. The Mokal Aura (otherwise known as the Valken Proton) is also extremely close to this ideal.
