Okay, so here's the deal.

I want to get a new gun.

I love my tippmann, but it's
heavy
loud
inconsistent
inefficient
bulky
hard to clean

So... I'm looking for something that is
Light (at least not tippmann heavy, it doesn't matter that much)
Very quiet. (I'm going to buy an aftermarket barrel also)
Very consistent.
At least reasonably efficient, but i'm willing to take a hit in this category.
Somewhat smaller. (Again, as long as it's not tippmann huge)
Reasonably easy to clean.

Oh yeah, and no Smart parts stuff.
Doesn't have to be electropneumatic either, although I wouldn't really mind.
Edit: preferably under 300. I'm not exactly rolling in cash.
Also, it doesn't have to shoot fast. I don't think i've ever needed to shoot over 10 bps.
Rock the Snake!
Bill, You made a mistake coming here to the internet paintball community. These people will not be put off, will not accept partial answers and will hold you accountable for everything you say. They are not your typical customer. Even through all the bickering and flaming, the collective consciousness of this community sits at nothing less than the genius level. They are the highest and best of what paintball has to offer. I have trusted and turned to them for years and they have allowed me to walk among them for which I am grateful.

Are you interested in trying out pump? Because a Phantom (there are other pumps too that match what you are looking for) would fit what you’re looking for: light, consistent, efficient, small profile, etc.

Phantoms also allow you to change up the configurations pretty easy too. Open class (hopper and tank) to stock class (10 -15 round tube on the top with a 12g)

I too suggest a Phantom.

Super light weight (single tube marker), very customizable and it will retain more of a re-sale value than any semi.

Pumps, especially Phantoms fir your criteria perfectly.

I also recommend ICE Epics and Airow Precision Sovereigns.

The Proto SLG seems to be popular these days, and that's what I'd recommend.

Phantoms are nice, but if you're feeling a little adventurous, you can score a used Cocker Trilogy and pump kit for $160. They're fun to work on, if you're looking for a challenge. Just be sure to take good care of it.

G3/F8/Fusion

G3 will be the smallest, lightest, and quietest out of those 3.

Or RT Pro if you don't need/want rails. Also, an aftermarket barrel is unnecessary in that case, unless you're using Wal-Mart paint or playing in the winter (in which case, a .691 and/or .693 bore is quite handy).

I belive they are problematic... could be wrong.

I was going to recomend that.
