My buddy is a paintballer. he is looking into buying an AR and he gets very frustrated with me when I tell him that the experience that he has with modding his paintball guns and the parts used to do it, don't translate very well to real firearms.

They call them "markers" to keep from scaring little kids and soccer moms. Just thought you should know.

Very nice!!

I'm not a Paintball fan, but from looking at some of those I think wouldn't mind owning one.

If anything else, I have to appreciate the time, money and workmanship some of these people put into these things.

I believe that if it doesnt make it shoot faster or straiter- then it doesnt belong, like lol on the fake magazines.

that said, here is my A5...its on ebay right now if anyone is interested. Painted sniper green with Lauer weaponry epoxy paints. (Marpat hopper)

I heard Shumer and Fienstien want to ban the evil features on these assault paint markers. Pretty soon that collapsible stock tippman will be worth big bucks. And what about the pistol grip? Those have no real sporting purpose and are designed only to spray and pray. And who needs more than one shot per trigger pull, or a magazine capacity of more than ten? These paint-hoses are flooding the streets of our youth with more thrusts per squeeze. How many more mr speaker? how many more!

That is a video of the HALO loader and an E-Mag, I believe, being fired at 20 balls per second.

That would be either an AMT Automag or 2003 or older Smart Parts Shocker with a Halo B loader.

Some of those fake magazines can be used to store a squegee and some spare o-rings. The only thing I did to my A5 was to put an after market barrel on it.

It's an AGD Emag on reactive. Reactive triggers on the tippman and Emag are pretty weak since you're just sweet spotting the trigger. If you walk a tournament marker you'll easily be faster than either one of those (20+ bps). About a year or so ago, one guy put another in the hospital. Knocked him unconcious with 13 shots to the head from about a foot away. The sport is in the shitter.

So how much are those going for? Checking out that video, that's some serious paint going downrange
and looks to be decent accuracy too. Damn.... my daughter saw them when we went up to Cabela's in
PA a month or so back, and wants me to get her one. Still considering it... It's been a long time since
I messed with the paintball thing. Maybe I'll get her one so she can shoot it up at the farm. Her
uncle might get pissed if the mules show up out in th barnyard with purple rear-ends!

I got into it back in the early 80s when the 'markers' first came out, and you started hearing about
'those guys with the CO2 guns that shoot little paintballs and run around in camo shooting one another
with them.' The pistols were something like singleshot almost, ISTR. I had one, but I'll have to ask
my Dad whatever happened to it. I'd pretty much forgotten about it.....
