In quick time it looks like Bob Long will be releasing a few new paintball guns in 2017. Bob Long (the company) was recently taken over by Field One Paintball. This past weekend we were able to catch up with Eric Crandall; he gave us some insight into what news guns will be coming from Bob Long in the near future.

In 2017 will be coming out with a new spool valve gun as well as an updated MVP. – Eric Crandall

We couldn’t get an firm answer on what the new spool valve gun would be like. The MVP with have a new body, different pump handle and a few upgrades that should see a marked improvement in reliability and performance.

We have also been told that there are plans to release a new Intimidator but no timeline has been set. I would LOVE to see a new G6R. G7R please!
