That's pretty much what they did, most if not all are drilled for eyes. I'm guessing it went something like:
- "Hey guys we ran out of boards and pneus, what do we do with the spare bodies frames & regs?"
* "Let's make a new sniper, that way we don't need any of the parts we don't have"
- "But it's 2005, no one's playing pump but the nostalgia market"
+ "Dude, let's use the karni bodies, everyone wants a karni"
> "And make it a midblock, so everyone's like: ZoMG less reciprocating mass; whatever the hell that actually means"
* " There's an idea, and because it's a midblock, we'll call it a JOLE, everyone wants a limited edition marker, they'll sell like hotcakes, can you imagine? a limited edition karni..."

< "Now presenting the NEW JOLE Sniper, based on our finest technology ever, the angled foregrip will help you cope with bad technique by artificially making you tuck your elbow in, they're pre-drilled for eyes so you can turn it into what it's supposed to be on your own budget and with the midblock configuration we made the reciprocating mass 3 Oz lighter for a smoother pump stroke; all the while keeping the mid strength mainspring and o'rings on the bolt, with that hard a spring you won't even notice the o'rings on the bolt are there. Oh and while we're at it: here, have a re-annoed non-matching surplus HPR, WE KNOW it doesn't look right, but it works exactly the same as the matching one (which we sadly ran out of) so you'll have to make due, but you know what; it's all worth it because it's a limited edition karni so **** YOU.
PS: Yes, we're that AWESOME...."
And then they got sold to K2, and then JT, and then KEE; which made a new midblock sniper based on what? karni bodies.
