Most paintball players call them "markers", but who are they fooling? They're guns. Anyway, about the full-auto. I want one. What should I look for?

This is my setup. 2003 LE Angel with an 88ci compressed air system. I'm gonna sell it to fund the purcahse of a .30 caliber suppressor. [:)] [img]http://webpages.charter.net/jeff.hoeft/pics/Angel.jpg[/img]

Whats your price range? Many lower tier markers are semiauto markers w/ an electronic "lower" that makes the fun stuff happen. Don't get me wrong, they work well, but it is sort of like bump firing v/s real full auto. If you have the $, get an angel or an autococker. I liked my spyder semi-auto, but it was all METRIC. All aftermarket parts are in english.

Actually, they are markers that somewhat resemble guns. I started in the mid 80s and we always called them markers because they were used to mark cattle and trees. Oil based paint of course. That being said they are called both guns and markers today. There is one company that makes realistic looking paint markers and even have RIS. They can be pricey.

I'm getting a spyder electra dx today in the mail playing this weekend at a bacholore party, WOO WOOO!!

Armotech makes some realistic looking paintball guns.... http://www.armotech.com/product/index.asp Also, Tippman has a gun out called the A-5 that looks a lot like an MP5 and can be dressed up quite nicely.

Yep, that's the company. I like the WG65 elite with all the bells and whistles. It would be great for scenario games. Think I'll keep my autococker around though. There is even an AK-47 kit for the A5.

I recently got into paintball and use a Tippman 98 Custom. It is rated as the most reliable marker made. It kind of feels like an MP5 and can honestly say that it is durable. I spent 5 hours last Saturday crawling around in the woods in the rain and never had a chopped ball. Here is a good website for paintball reviews: [url]http://www.pbreview.com/[/url] C4

Hey Topcrest, does that RAM eject those pieces of brass that look like they fit around the paintballs?

I used to spend literally thousands a year on paintball. Fortunately, I woke up. It was fun while it lasted, though...

Might look into airsoft. I just got my tokyo marui Colt M733 from WGC and it is flat out badass: [url]http://www.wargameclub.com/pcart/shopper.php?itm=TM-AEGWB-M733_cat_Marui AEGs[/url] All kinds of models of select fire airsoft guns to choose from. Not cheap, but loads of fun if you have some buddies into it as well. Kills paintball IMO, realistic guns and mag changes etc are the ticket...

I used to play Novice level tournament player and swore by my angel. It NEVER broke balls and NEVER failed. It was an amazing gun. I've since left the sport but my teammate started his own chain of paintball stores and is doing pretty well for himself. Sometimes I go in to visit and gossip about the new thinsg in paintball. When I left paintball the Impulse was a really buggy marker, but now theyre supposed to be an amazing marker for only $450 for a basic level one. If I were to get back into tournament paintball it would be an angel or an impulse, and there are some GREAT mods for the impulse.
