Just woundering what special ops and other players would suggest.


So Spyder MR1 or tippmann 98

Please say why one or other is better.

The 98, soooooo many upgrades and it never stops shooting. I have one and so does my friend (hes had it for over a year and NEVER cleaned/oiled it and the damn thing still shoots fine). Mr1 is a bit cheaper and comes with a stock, but who the hell wants a milsim gun with a double trigger?

The 98c is better than the MR1. Spyders aren't generally as reliable as Tippmanns, as in they're more likely to break down, and sooner. Other than that, there isn't too great a difference. You could also go for a BT-4, which is internally just like a 98, but has a few nicer features on the outside, and is cheaper. I don't think there's really a downside to a BT-4, except possibly fewer upgrades (less bolt-on Mil-Sim kits if you really want them, and I don't know if a 98 powertube will work in it, or the hammer, or bolt, etc. I just know they're very similar).

Cool. Are the bolt and hammer the same, too?

Yeah.
I forgot to mention, BT-4's manufactured after the Tippmann settlement have a nub on the receiver for the powertube - Just dremel that off to use 98 PTs.

I'd take a BT-4 for or a 98C as my low end blowback of choice.

So you want to know why it's called an A5?

If I could assemble a new regulator for a paintball gun, I could build a liver. How hard could it be?

I'll bet you $10 the above post is telling you to buy an automag.

I'm going to vote BOTH 98 Custom and Other. The 98 Custom is a good gun. Very nice with a few upgrades. There are, however, better choices available if you're able to shell out more to begin with.

Good choices:

98 Custom
A-5
Automag Pro Classic with Level 10
X-7
Ion

Bad choices:

Any Spyder or other stacked tube blowback (aka Pirahna or Spyder clones)
JT Tac5

Of these, the Automag Pro Classic is probably the best choice. However, it is also the second most expensive, right behind the X-7 (and the most expensive once you add an elbow and hopper, whereas the X-7 is a complete package). It's personal preference which you choose. Avoid Spyders and the like. They'll break on you.
