Results tell the story behind any innovation and it's commercial success in the marketplace will be a function of those results. Few people bank on hype since it is about the last thing that brings people satisfaction.
How long does it last?
How many Championships has it been used to win?
How is it priced compared to the competition?
What is the quality of the fit and finish?
What is the backing like from the manufacturer?
What is the power, velocity and shot count?
How does it rate in customer satisfaction?
How is the efficientcy and useability?
What is the resale value like?
How accurate is it?
How consistent is it from one example to the next?
How does it balance?

These dozen criteria are far more important than if someone has eeked out greater efficiency by a few percent. What people want is reliable & accurate airguns that get gobs of shots per fill and gobs of fills per tank.

The 900 LD's out there and 120 US FT's/Hunters are a testament to what works for the long haul. Proudly USA made & backed.

I thank all those that have used my gear to get it done. Competition is good.

No fair peeking before you've made your guess.

innovations can be stolen. Your GTX trigger is a perfect example. Tim has several innovations the corporations just took with out paying and trying to get justice from them just cost to much. I am sure getting an attorney to go after the guy who stole your trigger design is in the same category.

Tim is like many who create. You make it the best you can and make as many as you can before someone rips you off and sells it for less. Many of us like to buy things from the originators and not the imitators. So while he does innovate it is for his customers and not for a corporation.

...for the innovations of others, and don't usually go out of their way to make content-free and unprovoked put-downs.

Don't you find that to be true?

for innovators as well,mainly because he benefits from the work those gifted individuals perform. However, some innovators have short memories, correct Steve? Any idea how many times I've read your attempts to pick fights with Tim, or beat some dead horse into pulp?(Debouncing springers). Credibility lies with accomplishment, not endless talk or intellectual prowess, and you sir cannot hold a candle to Tim McMurray when the topic of accomplishment is at the forefront.Long live the Steroid/Billet,the LD,the USFT,etc!

You get what you give in this world and when you demean others continually you get what you deserve.
Try respecting others before you expect it from them.

As long as I can get quality products and my selfish needs needs are met, I am good to go...LOL

We all can strap on the gloves and butt heads but I love it how we can now get what we need for our airgun hobby rather easily. Trying to find what I need for my airgun 25 years ago was a real pain.

Devaluing and disrespecting abilities that one lacks is a very common thing.
