It's not like these older guns are obselete, they all can keep up with the new guns no problem.
Kinda sorta. Guns are lighter, but only by a few ounces. Guns as a whole are more efficient, but a well tuned 'Cocker can get almost a case of a 68,4500 (even more on a 20oz), not to mention Timmy's, Angels, and Bushmasters have always been fairly efficient (Impulses with a few upgrades). As for bells and whistles, I don't think any gun can beat the old Angels. They had thermometers in the grip frame! Seriously, the only thing they were missing were a cell phone feature. But really, an Angel LCD with an Intelli'd WarpFeed and original Ricochet (with the LCD) and an Angel Air system is one of the most electronically advanced setups to have ever existed.
Paintball has not made much progress in the past 8yrs.
