Bending frame on todays super light and slim paintball guns isn’t anything new. Over the past 6 years of so it has become a common scene at paintball fields all over the world. Making these guns lighter and smaller has it drawbacks the major one being, rigidity. Taking hard diving or dropping a gun just right can bend the frame, the weakest point on a modern high-end electronic gun.

Today at the paintball field, we ran across this. We have heard of this happening but never actually seen it in person today. The player took a pretty hard dive and bad the front of the frame bent. The type of fall may have been a lot of todays guns.

We have gotten word for Eclipse that they are aware of the problem and all future guns will have a stronger mounting point and for the most part the problem should be fixed.
