Welcome to the Forums..there arent any "Sniper" markers..do you want something that looks like a Real Sniper gun? or a Marker that is Quiet, Accurate, Light, and low Profile? if thats the case than a Black CCI Phantom is your best bet

as previously stated there is no such thing as a sniper marker. We can point you in the right direction to a solid marker if you can get beyond the positions concept. You dont have to play a position, just play paintball.

If you have HPA i would advise you to get a proto slg or if you have Co2 to get an automag. I would rather you get the automag so you dont have a ridiculous rof ,becuase when just starting out you dont need any of that, you need to learn skills not to fall back on fire power > skill.

well t freak like your sig btw haha but anyways i believe that a phantom yes is an awesome and accurate marker BUT sometimes pump arent the perfect marker for the player. So to me for your price range...I've heard nothing but good things about the SP-1, if not the SP-1 you can find a pretty cheap Ion on these forums and those are extremely quiet, compact, light, and upgradable...and even when stock they look more like a speedball marker they have bodykits to make them more "tactical" or MilSim. Thats my personal opinion. But otherwise the phantom...if pump is your style is a great marker as well.

while this is my first forum i have been playing for 2 years and own a spyder sonix, but yeah i know what u guys mean as in there is no "sniper marker" i did'nt phrase it quite right i kinda ment a gun for the sniper position. i have never played with a pump gun but it sounds interesting but not my kinda style.

When asking about markers you should state if you are using HPA or CO2.

i also get what you mean by not falling back on firepower vs. skill cause i meet noobs who buy markers like mr2s and suck terribly, while i can easily beat the with just a sonix, and i use c02

do you want amarker that looks like a sniper's rifle ( God, it feels so innapropriate to use it in paintball context!!!) or a marker that will have accuracy, low noise, and be low profile?

like T- Freak said, a black Phantom would be good, but if you are not the kind of guy that likes pump lay, thats is fine. a Tippmann is a good gun in that range, though some on the forum will disagree. you can make them look like anything, but they are a bit on the loud side. an automag can be fitted and fabrict=ated to look like a real gun, but you will have to custom make most of the parts. other thatn that, the SP1 is a great marker, and if you want a functional gun, id say Mag, SP1, or even a tippmann with the right upgrades.

oh, and welcome to the forums.

Sling shot, silent, limited ammo, easy to move with, easy to conceal, it is a small target, good co2 and air effeciency, it has a universal bore match, usually cheap, and relativly easy to find. Other than that I got an MR1 with a red/green dot and it is just lovely to snipe with, and its quieter than my friends tippmann.

I personally would recommend an Automag. They are a little more complicated than your Spyder, but not to horrible. Also after you get the mag, you can save some cash and have Noxx55 place it in a wood stock for you and voila! a low profile rifle that could easily be used for a sniper role esp. with one of his springfeeds instead of a hopper. I believe there is one for sale in the mechanical markers B/S/T section right now as well.

A phantom is also a nice choice for pump play. I personally loved mine but couldn't find enough interest in pump play.

Either way you choose, go with what you like and don't let people on here influence you in a negative way. Afterall everyone on here can simply give you their opinions!

Spyder, doesn't really matter which kind but since the marker is about 20% of the player, if not less. All you need is something reliable, dependable and simple to maintain and that's a Spyder. I'd say go with an E-Spyder for the simple fact that mech Spyder triggers frames have a pull like a car door and not nearly as many options for changing that with all the new options. Tippmanns are nice but over priced and too expensive in the long run with upgrades.
I don't recommend a pump unless you're willing to loose, ALOT. The learning curve for pump play is alot steaper then playing with a semi, yes your skills will be more honed but that's a long road to learn on when you're going out with 3 bps (that's really your fastest average) against 12-15 easy.
