Of your choices I personally like the BT-4. They broke away from Tippmann when they started doing some changes to their markers "Ben Tippmann" didn't completely agree with. BT-4s have a few things you won't find on modern day Tippmanns: A removable grip frame, and an actual aluminum body. They're still a clamshell but there's not much around that with most inline blow backs these days. It also has a few nice features like a removable front grip and it allows for multiple barrel threads. In my opinion it's not just another Tippmann clone. It's a marker that took what it didn't like about 98's and took a few of the nice things on A-5s and improved upon it.

although another good entry level gun on the same lines would be the sp1 which so far has proven just as reliable as the tippmann and kinder on paint then tippmanns

oh well i just lost some respect for BT
sp1s are mostly made in the US, all but the plastic frame and rails, all the metal and electronics are made in the US as well as all the assembly
