16 December 2007 - 04:45 PMi say automags are loud but great markers anywho...
any marker can be used as a sniper but some have benefits.
what the 'ideal' sniper needs:
Accuracy is gained by good paint (high quality paint and make sure its all dry). And a good barrel. Most any aftermarket barrel will be plenty accurate. Paint Size to Barrel Bore Ratio is key also. barrel kits come in handy here to match paint. Regulators also will shoot up accuracy by firing each ball with the same FPS and causing a better 'grouping'. Also you need to make sure you can sight down your gun. your gun can shoot lasers but if it isnt aim'd at your target...gonna be hard to hit it. im not saying spend $70 on a nice red dot. If your sight rail(if have one) is accurate fine. if you need a cheap red dot, even better.
Stealth- This co-relates with Quietness. The quiter your marker the better. Also darker colors and camo help hide your marker. Q-loaders get rid of a hopper ontop but are expensive and arent really needed. If your gun is gonna be REALLY long its gonna be hard to keep it hidden...real sniper rifles are long for a reason...paintball its for 'the cool factor' or sometimes for performance. To keep your marker quiet here are some things to consider. Longer barrel equals quiter barrel. Porting= quiter (dye barrels and stiffi barrels are crazy quiet...Dye>Stiffi.....The lower pressure your marker the quiter. Matrix's are crazy quiet becuase they run at 130-150psi...Tippmanns/Mags are crazy loud cuz they run on 800-900psi.
Reliabilty- If you pop out to take a shot and your gun doesnt fire....or it does fire once,twice, dead.........if they see you you're done.
Comfort/Ergonomics- if you put someone in your sights and have to wait for a decent shot...and its hard to hold them in the crosshair...thats not good...going remote or a stock can help lighten the load and ease aim'ing. Also if its a heavy marker and bulky it can keep you from getting into that perfect spot. Or if u are outman'd/gun'd it can slow you down while running. It can fatigue you also and weaken your performance physically.
Good Marker Bases:
Autocockers: Mech cockers are extremely reliable...among the fastest firing mechs...CRAZY customizable. Efficient. QUIET QUIET and very very cheap...im crazy bout these guns...
Ion: Blackcell kit availible. Low pressure=quiet. fast firing. reliable. lightweight VERY cheap.
Tippmanns: Cheap, Reliable.............parts avialible.....kind of a begginer gun....get what pay for....(they arent bad...but there is SO much better for price)
High-ends- Quiet, light, fast, accurate
Pumps: rely on skill....conserve paint easy. reliable (phantoms).
if you havnt noticed...im naming MANY diff guns...almost anything works
But all in all make sure you have a reliable marker, that has a nice barrel, not bulky, has a regulator, HPA is a HUGE +++.
yeah i'm goin to get a ion with a blackcell kit.
were can i get a good gillie suit
