what is the best gun for sniper
Posted 24 June 2010 - 08:32 AM
What marker is best? That's more of a personal preference than anything else. Some like the CCI Phantom because it's a pump and very low profile. Others like the Tippmann A5 or X7 because you can customize them to look the part. Some prefer a "speedball" marker because they offer a higher rate of fire if it's needed.
Phantom - will run from $200.00 to $300.00 USD depending on the configuration you want http://www.phantomon...uns/primary.htm
Tippmann/BT markers will start around $400.00 for the X7 Phenom, $250 for an X7 and $180 for an A5. Most of these can also be bought as a package deal. For a bit more you get a mask, tank and some other items as well.
Speedball markers..... BIG variance in price. Ion used to be the best option but now that Smart Parts is out of business they are hard to find new, as are parts kits. Invert Mini, Proto SLG seems to be reasonably priced for a starter marker.
There is another option though.
The Tiberius T4. It uses the Tiberius First Strike rounds which are more expensive than regular paintballs but fly further and are much more accurate. It's able to use regular paintballs as well, but it starts around $900.00.....

You can look into Tiberius t9 markers and outfit them for first strike rounds. Might save you a couple bucks.
Couple of questions too,
What's your experience like in paintball? Years of experience? Markers owned/own?
Are you part of a team, solo, recreational baller/once-a-month-baller, play in big matches/local fields, etc.?
What is your price range, do you enjoy mil-sim style markers (military simluation, the tippmann a-5/x-7/98c route) or do you want markers serving a purpose instead of an image? or both?
Give us this information and we can point you in the right direction-
Preferred look, if any (mil-sim vs. typical)
Preferred air source (should be compressed air, but choose regardless.)
And can you handle maintanance? A lot or a little. you get the idea.
Hope to help out.
did I die for a second there?...

the shot distance ? and the price ?
Depends a little on what your idea of a sniper is, and your sniper game, but here's my perfect sniper...
...light weight, accurate, low profile, easy to sneak in and off the field. Inexpensive as well...just a little over $200 altogether.

Doing this will mess with the chrono speeds. Anytime you switch the barrel out to a signifigant degree IE: 14" barrel to a 4" barrel....this will cause the chrono speeds to vary very differently and could cause problems for you on the field, like shooting hot.

I just remove the barrel and the stock...takes about 2 minutes...stows in my ALICE with stock, scope, gloves, and ghillie or sniper veils. 16 inches isn't really that long. It also fits in my friends squeegee holster, and I thought about buying one of those to stow it, but I prefer to keep it out of sight when taking and leaving the field. Nothing really wrong with a barrel longer than 14" unless you expect it to significantly enhance performance...other than aim and placing your body further away from the business end and keeping you hidden, a longer barrel doesn't help in that department much, although it doesn't take away as much as people think, either. A longer barrel isn't very practical for CQB or speedball, but it can be fun...fun being what most of us play for anyway.

Putting a stick feed on anything with an X-valve is like...well...it's a huge waste. Whenever I see the plain longbows (Q-bows are a different story), I die a little inside. Unless, of course, the owner swapped out the X-valve for a Classic valve. Then it's fine.
And to the OP: get anything that can easily run First-strike rounds. Either a T8 or T9. It just so happens that I have a T9 for sale also. PM me if you're interested.

What this man just said for you non automag whores:
The AGD Tac one has a thing called a X-valve
This is the fastest recharging valve out, meaning you have a marker which can put out Insane BPS,
The second problem, because of the actual materials, the faster you shoot the X-valve, the more consistant the marker becomes.
This is why we dont like Stick/Spring feeds on these markers.
What you shoud do, get a classic valve which runs on Co2, then switch the front grip out for a 12 gram bucket changer, you now effectivly have a SICK super compact sniper.
