So they shared the design fee for the "ripper" g6r and threw it on a Luxe X?

The ripper name has now been bastardized to the point to where it no longer carries the luster it once had.

Other than the one guy recently who actually licensed the name from the guy who came up with it long ago.

This seems like an odd fit, since it wasn't that long ago that HK bought up the rights to the Marq/Victory platform from Bob Long. Sure, there's some history with doing HK versions of SP/GOG/DLX guns, but if I owned a design, I'd take care of that design rather than commissioning private label versions of someone else's gun. But that's me.

The amount of hypocrites that will come here to rip (no pun intended) on this are the same ones complaining about lack of true private label guns. If any but HK did it you would be gobbling it up.

IDC about more or less private label guns, this just didn't come together well. At best it's a weird brother to the ripper g6r, which I also didn't like. It also makes for a funny comparison since Luxe ripped off the CS2 engine and then HK ripped off the "ripper" milling(though more realistically they used the same designer since they're close with the field one guys).

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
