The model T Ford and the rotary phone were “good enough” once. How many of those do you see today? Progress is just the nature of things. The newer guns are selling because they carry features that are clearly preferred by the consumers. Side lever mid cocking for one seems to be a highly touted design change. Also, this is coming from someone who is not a fan of bullpups. If, as someone who carry’s little interest in bull pups is noticing this bias toward the newer design changes, the manufacturers of guns in the older style would likely benefit from being open to change as well or possibly end up a footnote in history along with the model T and rotary phone.


OK, let’s separate flys from cutlets :). Saying desing I ment the look of the gun, not the mechanism. Yes, you are right saying that new guns are sold because they are brinning new features. But the problem is that in some cases they bring not the new feature but the new expectations of the feature. We have a lot of examples like that in computers, phones, cars etc. The makers are running forward not to make the things better but to make new things, otherwise the client will consider him “old” and leave for other producer. And it happens that we still use things which were designed hundres years ago but made with new materials and technologies. 

Yes, I am interested to make new things but make new things not the things seems to be new. Do you understand the difference? If gun good enough to fulfill the wish of the client, why to change it?

Because good enough is only good enough for today and sometimes feels like JUST settling.  In business if you live in or for today you are already 2 steps behind.

There are only a few constants in life and one big one is “EVERYTHING CHANGES”.  No matter how great Edgun was or is, if it doesn’t keep up with the change, (evolution if you will) it too will go the way of the dodo bird and the dinosaur.  You are correct in saying somethings seem to be new but are not, that is because NEW is not easy if it were easy everyone would be doing it, it takes a special minds to come up with NEW.  Then take that NEW and also make it GREAT, now that is as challenging as hitting a hole in one on a par three (golf reference).  As good as the Edgun Matador still is, when pitted between a choice of something new and shiny with the hopes of being great and something old and proven, old and proven will lose out the majority of the time.  It’s just the way of the world we live in today.  “Millennial’s who knew?”
