Hello everibody.

Please forgive my syntax because i m not an English Man !

I just start playing, and my objectiv is to become a sniper ( hunter style ).
I don t wanna spend 500$ for a beautifull gun, and i want something that shoot right !

The problem is, i want something meca that can be as good as possible long range, but also that can do the job in low range plays, like building captures ...

I think about something like this.

Tippman A5 with a 22' barrel, a MP5 retractable cross, and a scop ( Acog style, to be effective close and high range ) maybe a biped ( i don t know yet)
I didn't find some accuracy test for this type of guns, how many metters of feets can i hope to shoot with accuracy with this stuff ? DO you think it will do the job ?

Thanks for your answers.

You could do a mag fed marker. Using First Strike rounds. I don't know much about that stile or about the different companies. Hopefully someone else with more knowledge of that stile will pick up on this and help. If not ill share what I have gathered although limited and more then likely outdated.

I'm going to recommend a mechanical x7 phenom. Much better platform than the A5. Slightly more costly, but it's worth it.
As for barrels, I would recommend Hammerhead. Once again, expensive, but top notch when it comes to accuracy.
If you want distance, get an Apex barrel. Not super accurate, but you'll get better range than a standard barrel.
If you want a 22 inch barrel, more power to you. The thing is though, your 22 inch barrel will probably perform about the same as something in the 14 inch range. That's pretty much the longest you get before air effecient starts going down.
Stay away from magfed. The kits that have been put out need a LOT of work to get them to work correctly.
Go ahead and get a Tac cap or just use the hopper it comes with.

One more question, i just found some Phenom X7, but some are mechanical and others Electro.
If i buy it to a particular because it's not a new one, should i be more carefull when it's Electro or how can i check if it's working well ??
For a Mecanical juste shoot with air connected and hear the sound. But i imagine it's different with Electro ?

Thanks for your answers.

The electro phenom functions very similarly. The electro even has a mech mode built in. The only thing I can think to check for would be that the board powers up and the solenoid works. This can be achieved by turning the board on via selector switch. The marker will fire in whatever the selected firing mode happens to be. Aside from that, I can't think of any sort of inspection to ensure the board works propperly. Tippmann customer service should be very helpful with any possible issues, even if the marker is purchased second hand.

To be honest, you should have no problems with it if you go with the e-gripped phenom. I have had mine summered completely in water, and it functions well to this day.

If you do not mind my asking, what part of the world are you from?

The plain old X7 is more or less an A5 in a new body.
The phenom uses something called a flex balve. It's a smoother shooting and a bit more air effecient. looks a little different from the older X7.

Phenom. Hands down. Better, more consistent function, and much easier to maintain. If you see the need to, later on, you can upgrade your mech phenom to an electrical one by purchasing the grip for it.

Hello there.

I just bought my X7 phenom, new one cause i didn't find good second hands offer.
I have test it this Sunday and this is like WOAW !!!! Awsome ! :)

9 games 6 vs 6 with somes guys full Electro. and one game 13 vs 13. I did 11/5 in 7 hours of game. ( with some stop to eat ect ect )
I only use 250 ammo when others full Electro over 2000...

I just have to change my barrel to a 16' ( origine barrel is like a 9' ) and it's gonna be perfect. No breaking balls in the barrel, relativly quit shooter.

I just wanted to thank you for this great advises ! And hope for you that you will not cross my way on the field ! Or you will be Shoot Out ! :) thx guys.
