10 October 2010 - 07:23 PMok basically I've been getting really into paintball recently. I've been playing for about 5 years, but I've only been really majorly involved for about the last 4-5 months. So I've been looking to upgrade my 5 year old mechanical spyder (before you ask yes I know the whole upgrade your mask, upgrade your loader, upgrade to hpa etc. that is taken care of). I was planning on buying a pmr09 or a pmr10, but one of the refs on a field I regular (also a good friend of mine) is offering me a dm4 for $200. Is this a good deal? I really cant afford enough money to buy like a dm10, the most I can afford to spend on a marker is about $500. But if this a good electronic marker fo a guy on a budget then I could just buy this and have more money to play. He told me that the electronics are all new and he upgraded to a virtue board. He said he's made the trigger as soft as possible, but he did say the eyes are not working but that he might throw those in. Basically I'm just wondering if there would be anything I should watch out for. He said I could test it out and everything if I wanted to.
so basically yeah, feedback on the dm4 would be much appreciated, is this a good price? will it still be a competitive gun? are there any major problems I should watch out for? is there anything I would need to upgrade? if I need parts would I be able to find them?
04 October 2010 - 03:15 PMI've been playing for about 5 years, but I just got serious recently, and I need to upgrade from my old spyder. I mostly play airball, but I'll play woods occasionally. So I'm just wondering what you guys reccomend.
27 June 2010 - 08:44 PMAlright, so I was discussing paintball with my brother in law, but now basically I've decided I'm not going to go paintballing with him ever. He told me how he cranks his fps up to the max just to get straighter shots, and I explained to him how this is very dangerous and even illegal to have your fps above 300, and his response was "it's not above 300, if it was illegal then they wouldn't let the guns go that high". I then tried to explain to him how co2 varys with heat etc., but no dice. He refuses to get it cronographed, and refuses to play anything but outlaw ball because a field because will cronograph it (note I have nothing against outlaw ball, as long as you keep it safe, I play it myself sometimes, but it's idiots like these that make it dangerous). He refuses to accept the fact that his marker could do some serious damage at close range, and if someone had a damaged lense on their mask (which they should replace, but this is outlaw ball). He could do some serious damage to them. He states that he never shoots at close range, but all it takes is one failed attempt at a bunker to shock him, and I garuntee he will shoot.
So yeah, I've decided against playing with my brother in law until he lets me cronograph his marker and prove to him that it is unsafe.
25 June 2010 - 11:04 PMOk so I was out playing today. I had a great time, and I've never had any major problems with this marker (I got it about 5 years ago, it's my first and only marker), but today I noticed that I was having some accuracy issues. It seems like there was a lot of shots that i should be able to make, but the balls would not fly consistantly, and even once or twice they would bank left or right (and yes before you ask I was using hpa). This gun is getting pretty old, and considering it was my first marker I put it through some rough wear my first year or two, but I've never really had this problem before. What would fix this problem? I'm still using all stock, so any upgrades you guys think are good would be a great help. Although my problem could be that this field was giving us crappy paint (the field made us use their paint, and the box even said on it "reccomended use: practice"). Anyway, any help you guys can offer would be great.
17 June 2010 - 07:18 PMOk I've been playing for about 4 years now, but I just recently got serious, I've learned throught trail and error that my best position is ambush sniper. My current marker is a spyder xtra from about '04. It's nice and light, but it's centerfeed, so with no sights, I basically have to take about 3 shots per kill, which totally gives me away. Now I considered a tippmann, but they are a little too bulky for an ambush sniper. So I'm wondering what I can get for no more than $200 ($150 preferrably) that I can easily modify, and take with me sniping. I really don't want anything bulky, I want to be able to set up just about anywhere.
