That wasn't one of the markers he was looking at, SaintScythus.

I recommend the Q-bow.

However, if you're wanting to save $$, then get a base tac-one and a T2W air-thru stock, and a decent revvy. yeah it doesn't put the hopper down, but it's still pretty low, and with the angled offset rails, putting a sight on is pretty easy.

Dude, there is no way that the Q-bow could be for a medium rifleman, im a sabre, (just trying to learn more of the field...thats why im here) and i could not make do with 20 shots....sabres play point when the dagger is called out, the sabre can stand in the back and help out the hammers, the sabre can even snipe, but he cant do it all with a 20 - shot gun....thats why i have an A-5 w/cyclone feed and response trigger, but i also have a 16" barrel with a shroud on it....for sniping.

Q Bow has 100 rounds on it.

..and your barrel length totally makes you equipped for sniping. Screw ghillie.

If you've got the money to shell out for a Q-Bow, then take it.

AND if you want to go even farther then get the BLACKCELL Q-bow. Its based off of an ion. But if not, go for the Q-bow.

AGD has very good quality, even better than tippmann. If you want a "sniper gun" than yes, the Q-bow is a good choice. It is quiet, accurate and is very compatible to red dot sights. Also you know it is good because Special Ops made it and they always give their guns rigorous training. So good luck with the gun!!!

q-bow is my dream gun....

i am anti-sniper though, in that i dont like calling it sniping...i'd call my self an ambush...(i thought of that berfor i found specopspaintball mind you)

you can get the ion q-bow for alot less though, $250 cheaper...Tac-ones have Awesome quality but ions arent bad necesarily

Ion
Q-Loader Kit
Q-Loader 500rnd

$200+$340+$130=$670

if you dont have nitro use the money ud save on a bigger tank...make sure you get a 4500psi though...more shots/more price....I would recomend a 68ci 4500psi so u could run air on gun on a different gun without having a 90ci hangin off it.
Feedback! plz post if u havnt yet... Thank you

Here is my 2 cents...I'm a newer player and own a E-MAG Q-Bow.

I recently put this baby together and it's amazing. There are a couple of things to remember...AGD is very reliable but when you through a q-loader on it, it takes a little while to get things running properly. Now if you buy the marker from spec ops then this is not really a problem because they will take care of properly tweaking the gun.

My marker is very versitile...I can shoot as fast as everyone else (don't care what they own) and the 100 round q-pods can be swaped out in a second. This gun is great for snipers who want to be versitle...it's fast, reliable (once you get the hang of it), quiet, and accurate. The best part of the marker is that it feels very natural to shoot. Sighting it is so easy.

I would go as far as to say that this gun is a good choice for any position except a hammer or dagger.

GET THE QBOW

I would go with the AGD, but instead of doing all the expensive Q-bow stuff I would do this:

You get the Q-loader(and therefore a low profile), a cool unquie look, and why not take a challange? :D
Also, (I personally havent done the math) you probally could get this for less $$$ :panzer:

(I am trying to do this with one of my 98 customs)

You need to have really long arms to hold that comfortablely. The Q-loader is 16'' long if I remember right.

well. your really asking wether you should get a low end mech or a high end mech. both are great guns, very upgradeable and durable. i think that the q-bow is just a better choice. if u have the money.
the q-bow is very low profile, and its designed to be the perfect sniper marker. its also pretty fast, so you have added security if u get in a bad situation.

both are good, but honestly ur comparing a tac-one and a custom pro. so go try to try both out. see which one you like more.
