Look for a dual reg setup, HPA (or anti-siphoned CO2 with an expansion chamber or remote coil), and barrel kit.

In case you didn't catch it from their posts, no paintball gun is inherently more accurate than others. Accuracy comes from a variety of factors:

-The amount of air you let propel the paintball
-The pressure of said air (these first 2 constituting consistency)
-Good paint (no dimples, round, consistent size, etc)
-Good barrel

Now, there is still some debate regarding what constitutes a good barrel. Some say paint to (barrel) bore match is the key. Others say the quality of the internal finish (i.e honing) is most important. The only thing people seem to agree on is that barrel length doesn't matter, so don't go buying an 18 to 20 inch barrel.

Now with most of these things i've mentioned can be improved on just about any gun. A regulator will improve consistency very much. If you're using CO2, a anti-siphon will also help alot. As for the barrel, I strongly believe in the 'you get what you pay for' philosophy'. Thats not to say anything that is expensive will be good, thats just the general rule of thumb. If you buy a real cheap barrel, its not going to be great in most cases.

Any marker that I am shooting is 100 times more accurate than any marker anyone else is shooting.

other than that... :yeathat:

I beg to differ. I am no more or less accurate with my pump than with my semi. By that reasoning, taking an autococker, removing the pneumatics and putting on a pump instantly makes it more accurate?

no, pumps are more accurate because they have more time between shots, so the air reserves have more time to fill up, so the velocity is more consistent.


but as to most accurate gun: stock shoebox shocker. my friend has/had one that shot a consistent 286, 286, 286 over the chrono!
