Default Re: What (in your opinion) makes a good paintball gun?

Yup. I was just going off of his set-up, which included a 20oz CO2 tank. With HPA on the marker, he might hit +/-20fps consistently, but since it is spring actuated.... there is no guaranty.

Speaking of PM's, this a good enough reply to the last one you shot me? I've been condensing all the thoughts I've had presented into this thread, and some are just copied/pasted from the Word Doc I have going to reply with. I've got the last bit sent in a PM over to you now.

One that is reliable, and meets your needs expectations.

When I first started here with an imagine...........I literally dropped $1000.00 into it. But I found out BigRed's point very quickly! My $1000 Spyder could not compete with my ICD FS7 that cost me $700. Later I bought a $1000.00 marker after reading alot of reviews and gathering alot of information. What my FS-7 lacked was efficiency and that's what I really wanted. So as alot of the old timers know I picked up a MacDev Borg in '06. It was everything I ever had dreamed of...........high BPS (I typically play uncapped RT), 2000+ rounds per 68/45 and at the time it was extremely light. To this date the only thing I have been able to upgrade is the anno job

My suggestion to all new players is don't buy a marker if rentals are available. Go try out markers and see what really fits you! Don't drop a grand on your first marker..........go try markers out and watch the used market. You can typically get a great one year old marker for the same price as alot of mid end guns that will work great for you.

On the other hand..........if you just sold your Bugatti Veyron and want to get into paintball............I can hook you up with MD equipment!
For MacDev sales or support PM me!
