I do realize that the barrel mostly makes up the sound signature, so of course I'll be buying one (probably the Palmer's brass). And no matter what the gun I'll be making a project to design my own magazine system and stock specifically for that marker.
So what I'm looking for is a marker with a good, small base sound signature and low-profile.
Please and thank you =P
want low-profile and quiet marker, price is no option

I'd say go for a pump. Most are relatively quiet. yeah they have a pop sound when they fire, but you are only shooting once. Hard to ascertain direction of fire off one single shot. Look into Stock Class pumps, that use horizontal 10-15 round feedtubes. These will give you the clearest line of sight of any marker out there. I love my SC pumps...it's all i use anymore. Can't think of the last time i actually used a hopper on my markers. Just a SC feedtube and a ghost ring for a sight and i am good to go.
As to what types, this varies as there are two main breeds of pumps, and hundreds of variteis of each of those breeds. Phantoms, Grey Ghosts, Carter Machine markers, Tracers, Tippmann SL68's and over 180 others are of the Nelson breed. Single tube, inline body, pump goes around the barrel. They are highly effecient and very light generally (i stress generally, i have Carters that weigh as much as a stock tippmann 98). Many love them and their ease of use and cleaning. Phantoms are as light as they come, i swear i thought mine would blow away in a breeze.
Sheridan breed is stacked tube, (like a spyder, cocker, timmy). There are two flavors here. Brass Sheridan flavor...heavy, old school, built like tanks (can keep up wiht new markers fine with just a few tweeks). And then the Sniper flavor ( an autococker without pneumatics, what they originally were before becoming semi auto). These are aluminum and weigh much less and are much easier to get parts for and customize to your content.
If you want more info, jump over to the pump section or check out the Pump Links in my sig. hit me up if you need to know anything else.
Warning for you, pump play is by no means easy...it is by no means simple...you WILL lose the first few days/months/years you play until you totally relearn how to play the game. Once you hit that plateau, things will fall into place. How long that takes depends on you.
