My counterargument would be: your engine is the sole reason I bought a DSR+.

^^^I would agree, I choose Markers mostly on the Bolt System and how they shoot. Most people buying Gamma Cores and their knock-offs probably don’t want to do any maintenance.

The plate idea that MacDev uses(d?) is a pretty good idea for switching to different Bolt Systems and/or Solenoids/Mechanical 3-way Trigger Valves. I wonder if there is a better way to route the airflow so you don’t have to use Transfer Plates? Perhaps it could be done with just the Solenoid/Mech. Valve and internal Routing (similar to the M3 series airflow transfer tubes)?

Yeah, I was going to say something similar. I bought an M3+ specifically for the engine.

The transfer plate or sleeve sounds like a neat idea.

Macdev Rant
Goldy, I need to rant for a sec and you seem appropriate to listen ( and reply ) to my complaints and suggestions. I know Connor has some good tips on how to manage these small things, but I need to mention them anyways. Also I apologize for the jumbled order, lack of organizing this rant.

Goldy, ( and any Macdev engineers reading ) I want Macdev to make some specific changes before I buy their next high end. The eye cover retention system- look at how the CS2 does it and come up with something similar. The asa latch leaks with a slight touch, that’s weak and needs to be improved/fixed. The machining quality on the bolt assembly is subpar- Needs proper deburring and a nice quality anodizing. The bolt tip is fragile and needs a material change. I probably wouldn’t even mind a different drive design altogether either.

All the markers seem inconsistent in performance out of the box. Some primes seem to work better then others. Is it the noids? The XTS gives me the impression, whether it’s real or not, that it’s the worst high end at handling brittle paint. Can you guys thoroughly test the next Prime and make sure that it’s superb in the paint handling department? Get rid of the extra slop, side to side room, in the trigger.

Lastly, the barrel system you are currently using is just not good. Just about all my Shift 3 barrels had concentricity issues- the front tip and insert were so misaligned that it would’ve eventually led to a ball hitting an edge. And I’ll leave it at that.

I suppose I could have said that engine variety doesn't necessarily equal sales. When we started dye lab, I intended to release some crazy limited projects... The idea isn't dead per se.
