For upgrades you would probably want a new barrel and feedneck those are the two that I would highly recomend. For hoppers I would say a Halo or Vlocity however the Egg is also pretty good it has a really good battery life but the door and shell aren't the best. For air if your on a buget a steely is fine however carbon fiber tanks have a better hydro, you can get them in bigger sizes and they're lighter but they cost a lot more, and also the tank you get should be high pressure. Hoped that help and welcome to the forums!

j&j's are tried and true. Not too expensive either.

would a crossfire 68/4500psi be good?

Heres what I reccomend

VS2
Crossfire 68/45
Halo B
Empire Revolver or J&J edge kit


That would probably be a more cost efficient gun with air tank. If your like me I'm not cost efficient, I buy the high quality and expensive items because I want reliability.

:yeahthat:

I love my empire revolver kit with my VS2. If you size it right and the paint is decent you will never have a barrel break. I have the PEVs brand (Draxxus Bronze) sized at a .684 and it shoots great and doesn't break in the barrel.

Check firstcallpaintball.com for the kit. Its like $59.99

I reccomend:

VS2
CP stubby tank (48/45)
Halo
CP or J&J barrel
and a better feedneck

Accuracy is based mainly on paint to barrel size so you may want to get a two piece barrel so you can buy different backs for different paint.

on the website it says ''These markers use low pressure to reduce recoil, conserve air, and increase consistency in order to attain new levels of elevated performance.'' is it still good to use high pressure??


and what size is the stock barrel?

CP, Trinity, and NDZ are all good feednecks. The stock barrel size is 12 inches I think.
