It's a case where you simply can't make everyone happy, so just give them what they need to allow them to make it right for themselves, and I think they've done that; it uses a standard picatinny rail and an M16 grip, so there's plenty of options if you don't like what's provided.

As for price, if you feel the gun needs to be absolutely perfect for you out of the box at $999, hey, that's your perogative. For me, I've never owned a gun, from a lowly Tippmann to $8-900 custom scratchbuilt guns to a $1500 NT that I didn't feel I needed to change SOMETHING on to make it right for ME. So if all this needs is a $50 grip or a $20 riser to accommodate me a little better, I don't have an issue with that. I don't see a whole lot of other companies looking to put bolt-action First Strike rifles out there for the (notably small) number of people who want them, so the price is what it is. You can't grow the sport and the industry by nickel-and-diming the hell out of every new company and product that tries to enter.
While I agree with you to an extent. (swapping a reg, bottom line, barrel, etc) You physically can't use a cheek rest while wearing a mask. Unless the bottom is soft but even then you risk the chance of moving your mask.
I'm not talking about the length of the stock, or having a grip that contours to every crack in my hand. I'm talking about the cheek rest and the cheek rest alone. Everything else about the gun looks solid. It could bring down the cost of production to remove the adjustable cheek rest. The stock that L_X posted would be perfect for this application. The next thing someone is going to tell me is buy a new mask.
I'm not trying to nickel and dime them. I'm just trying to offer a suggestion to an obvious flaw while it's in the prototype stages. This hasn't even come out yet. Even though it looks great and resembles a real rifle. Our needs as paintballers our different from actual firearms.
What I would like to see from this company before this comes out:
Similar stock to what L_x posted for the remote line.
For the tank stock, have it angled for mask clearance.
And while we're talking about customization maybe offer a back piece to make it compatible with Tippmann stocks.

Cool looking, but I don't think it will have the range we would dream of.

You ever been shot at by a good sniper with FS have you?

Let's just say that as pointman for my scenario team I used to laugh when I heard "Sniper!" get called out. Now I eat dirt as fast as possible.

Cool looking but no advantage over a tiberius that is much cheaper and battle tested. Though I am sure someone will buy it.

Definitely a cool concept. Reminds me of the british dude who made his own bolt action a couple years ago. Alas, a product I will never use.

Not sure what is becoming as IT(acogs, milsim) has always been around. Their are plenty of cqc weapons around, but very little sniper rifles.

really? It's cool but I don't know how practical this could really be... It's probably just me, not a fan of "snipers" and longbow add-ons

I understand what he is saying, Im saying that the distance doesn't matter. Lenses are rated to 300 FPS. If a ball starts less than 300 FPS, than it can only slow down. and therefore never exceeds ASTM standards. Distance is irrelevant to how fast the paintball is traveling when speaking about impact points. 285=285, or 240=240, regardless if the ball took 3 or 30 yards to get there, as long as its under 300 FPS its well within parameters and the ASTM safety standard isn't degraded at all.
Thats what I don't understand.
The spin is what makes it hurt more I think.
