Most Compact Marker Under $100? Preferably Under $60?
Posted 25 May 2008 - 08:37 PM
Now the husbands (brothers) are all mostly thinking of purchasing markers. Thinking to myself it might be a good idea if the wives can get their own markers as well. we all know how troublesome field rentals can be. So I was thinking that there are plenty of very cheap semi-autos out there online that can be had for as low as $40-50 that would be perfect for the wives. They are brand new, gives them some ownership and so forth.
I am not looking for anything with all that much accuracy or upgradability because really these things will be played upon once a year. A semi-auto mechanical I think is best as well since it is less for them to fool around with. With all that in mind I would like to find something that is as compact as possible.
Something from 32 degrees, VL or Brass Eagle immediately pops to mind. Also perhaps the Spyder Victor? Anyone have some good suggestions I may have missed?

The biggest concern when looking at a marker under $100 is going to be it's build quality. You can kind of assume it won't be the quietest or most consistent marker out there - but what you want is something that isn't going to break down after only a few weeks of use.
They sell rebel xtremes for $50 and it's a pretty good deal considering the marker. They used to sell for about twice that, but since the model is a few years old they've come down in price. The quality of the materials used is a step up from a lot of other new markers currently in it's price range. They also come in black, green, red, and silver so you can let the wives pick their colors
With a power feed, expansion chamber, and angled air source adapter they work very well when hooked up with a simple gravity hopper and plain CO2 tank. The barrels are actually polished which is a lot better than many other markers even in the $150 range can say. They also have a metal trigger and trigger fame - another quality many other markers in the price range don't have. With their mainbody being made out of aluminum they're pretty lightweight, a CO2 tank and full hopper will be what really adds on the pounds.

If not. any STBB Spyder or knockoff can be had for under $100 if need be.

True, but the stock accuracy sucks compared to a Spyder. I like the Spyder TL-X for compact and it's an overall good marker. I have a sale in my signature where I'm selling one. Maybe check it out if you want. The nice thing is you can take off the foregrip and A.S.A. and screw the tank right into the main body.
