Promasters. Still have mine, just as good as any current marker.

Lucky Un1tech barrels. I have a cocker threaded kit and they are hands down one of the lightest barrels I have ever used. Love the one piece design.

The Nerve, made obsolete long before its time because of agglets not thinking they are the in thing(SP didnt really help with the marketing and giving all their teams shockers either).
I love mine. Shoots fast and is just an awesome marker.

For me it a PM7 ul or a 06 minion. Awesome markers that can keep up with the best.

Hyper2 regs rock.
Made in the US with great precision.
Ergonoic design, small, light and tight.
Self cleaning eyes on the PM7. They work too


Also I3 masks and hybrid grips.


Well, the good news is...I just bought an 06 Minion. Yay!

I agree with the Tiger Shark comment. The Tiger shark was reliable, light, easy to fix...it was as good as any other pump out there at the low-mid level. It's only real drawback was it not really being upgradable at all.

I would add all things AGD. We'll never see a mech marker that can compete with what AGD did. The cocker was brilliant in it's own right, but far too complicated and fragile compared to Mags. Until the development of the spool valve, there just wasn't a feat of engineering that came close to the Mag valves.

I'll also add two specific things I thought about today.

1) Brass Eagle barrel cleaning tool: They made a hard plastic tool that had a rubber circle on one end, and a plastic loop on the other. You could use the rubber end to push paint out of the barrel, and use the looped end to actually clean the barrel. Most barrel cleaning tools nowadays are just pull-throughs. I like Brass Eagle's tool, which was similar to actual firearm cleaning tools.

2) wire nubbins for twist-lock mag barrels:The plastic ones BLOW! I have certain twist-lock barrels where the plastic ones wont fit and other barrels where the plastic one will fit, but it won't keep the balls from rolling out.

The AGD RT-Pro could be added to the list. I have one of their older stainless steel valve markers and it has plenty of firepower and consistency. Even against players with the higher end electros I never feel outgunned when I have the RT in my hands.

How bout something thats never been made? (And probably never will be) A solid tungsten marker. Sure, it would probably be like 25 lbs, but you would be able to break into a bank with the damn thing and then air it up and shoot it. Hrmm, wait, thats eerily close to the old style tippys......


Anywayy, on topic, how bout good ol' 12ies? I haven't seen NEAR as much a base for them as I have in years past (I may not have been playing long, but i was watching long before) as there used to be. Sure, theyre not exactly high in shot count, but damn does it feel good to not have to lug around a CO2/HPA tank all day.

Edit: Hrmm, theres a thought, find a way to make refillable 12g's......or at least have some company come out with a recycling process where say you send in 50 spent ones, you can get like 20 filled in return, and they can just reuse the spent ones. Only real problem is the caps, and i've pried them off of a few spent ones before, so i dont see why they cant take off the punctured ones and put good ones back on.

That's actually something I DON'T miss. I used to hate having to mess with 12g CO2 cartridges. You could use up 1-2 a game, and that was back when we were shooting Talons and Tiger Sharks. How long would a 12g last on a modern electro? Even if you could get 12g HPA (CO2 ruins internals), you'd need to carry a backpack full of them.

I have that tool! Haha, I had a BE Talon and STILL HAVE a Stingray II WITH the extended/upgraded barrel! I also have a Spyder LP =D Along with the old Z-Leader goggles and a BE pair that have some of the best field of view I've seen but were discontinued.

Or things that never should have been made in the first place? Bought an " electric sight" on clearance from Walmart (my bad) that was supposed to attach to your feedneck. Had two LEDs that were supposed to help you aim. Double fail. Didn't attach to my feedneck and didn't help my aim. Good thing I didn't pay much.

Tippy 98c. Built like a rock with the stock accuracy of one. I ran over my tippy 98c with a car, and it still works. I recommend one to parents i see wandering the paintball aisle of Wal-Mart instead of the plastic "wal-mart specials." *sigh* everyone nowadays is obsessed with X-7's and Phenoms...
