Mag's would be cool...and should really give many problems..probably my personal favorite out of the suggestions given.
"I could be your third wheel."
"You know that's not a good thing right?"
"Of course it is, it adds more grip, greater stability"

I would pick up a mag off of a BST somewhere. You can usually get a classic valve for around 100-150 depending on the parts. They are rugged, easy to clean and maintain, plus there are an amazing amount of upgrades for them. You can do just about anything to a mag and make it a perfect setup for you. I just picked one up and I love it. Just make sure that you got HPA. They can work on c02 but sometimes the c02 gets in the gun and it does not charge properly.

Overall, get a mag, they are cheap, they are reliable, and customizable.

Eskimos one to ten list of questions.

Please mark and answer the following questions, by doing so you will give readers an exact position on statements and follow up questions.

here's a few questions to ask yourself.

1: What do I like most about each of my markers? ( 1 point each, but must be different)

2: What Do I like least about each of my markers?

3: What do all my markers have in common?

4: What is different between each marker?

5: What is the price range of all my markers?

6: If I had to pump my marker, would that be fun, or would that make me sad.

7: standing as a perfectly stock marker, is it good the way it is?

8: Have I considered a marker with better gas efficiency?

9: What is my Tank size? can I afford to have a gas-hog for a marker?

10: What markers Have I held, which I really liked the feeling of, ( I really liked the balance of X marker )

11: Have I explored the Electo market, the Pump market, and the Mechanical market?

12: Am I still stuck n 1990's and beleive the Electro markers "WILL" break if water touches them. ( some people dont know about the durability of the new markers )

13: Am I happy?

14: Can I afford to purchuse cases of 2000 like double doubles from Tim Hortens? ( Canadian thing )

15: Have I considered my playstyle in comparison to the markers I'm using?


Alot of people think the best thing to do in paintball is slowly upgrade your markers from low, to medium low, to medium, to medium high and then to high end. But honestly the difference between a 250$ marker and a 500$ marker is astronomical, while the difference between a 1000$ markers and a 1500$ marker is sometimes a little more hidden, im not telling anyone to go but 1000$ markers right now, im just saying that in my opinion rather then buying 4 markers all costing 200$ you could have purchused a 500$ which may have served you ALOT more in the long run.

One thing to note, at the same price points, like X marker at 159.99 versus Y marker at 189.99 both are pretty much the same, they may look different, but the end result is they were both made with the intention of filling the gap between 150$ and 200$

eh, before I get onto a history lesson, Your intellectual. Im sure you wont go charging into any stores and whipping out that visa.

and as for the Mag comments, Yes I love automags more then anything else in the world (other then people) BUT. there are more to this world then just classic valved Automags. if you look into a automag, make sure you look into Autocockers as they are just as good in their own ways. and also. Remember a Mag is a mechanical blow forward operation, which is WAY smoother then the markers you have now, but like I said. any marker with a well designed valve and operation will be very smooth to hold.
