There appears to be a new manufacturer on the milsim marker market! Scarab Arms based out of Las Vegas has the following to show off:
"The Scarab TGR2 MILSIM Magazine Fed Marker is constructed from durable light-weight T6 Aluminum Alloy and Nylon Fiber with fully ambidextrous controls, sling mounts, comfortable ergonomics and an easy and quick dissasembly feature. The Scarab Marker is equipped with high end iron sights and an integrated MIL-STD 1913 top mounting rail for optical or electronic sights and other accessories. The lightweight fiber magazine holds 18 projectiles while the marker its self features a chamber sight window to instantly verify both the payload type and need to conduct a tactical or regular reload.
In addition to this the SCARAB will accept numerous 0.68 paintball magazines manufactured by different suppliers.
The propellant source is hidden in the butstock for a more realistic and tactical feel while the pistol grip can be exchanged with almost all Gas Blow Back Airsoft AR platforms or real steel m4/m16 pistol grips.
The Barrel system is 100% free floating accepting any A5 threaded barrel. The Scarab also comes standard with an extremely tough RIS sytem that holds a built in cleaning rod."
