So i was sitting and thinking, most people focus their markers on one or two core values. For instance, the ego is king of reliability, the G6r the king of Efficiency, the luxe is the king of quiet, the vapor the king of expensive, etc.
But what gun(s) do everything well, instead of one thing great?

Protip. Buy a shovel. Dig and Pile REPEAT until desired effect is achieved. Builds upper body and character. Bitches love upper body and character.

G6R with a SLP Reg and a LP Poppet.

It will be super soft on paint, the noise is reduced dramatically, you still get quite a bit in efficiency, it will be.. a little less finicky(though one can argue this), and the trigger for either psp or Semi will be amazing.

Close second is a three way tie between the MacDev GT, Luxe, and the 2013 Demon.


But in honesty the G6R with a SLP(Ninja tank) and a LP Poppet is going to be hard not to touch base with everything.

A lot of those guns do it all, take the G6R for example. It may be the "king of efficiency" but its also quiet and smooth for a stacked poppit.

There isnt much difference between the high ends of today, some are better at some things than others, but none of them really fail in any aspect. Just depends on what you need in a marker.

I am a HUGE Bob Long fan.... I love Bobs stuff for the following reason.

SIMPLICITY. All of the Intimidator Series are extremely easy to work on.
Reliability. Bob Long guns are extremely reliable. It does require the user to know their marker.
Air Efficiency.
Cost - Bob Long guns are always priced well.
They Hold Their Resale Value.
Quiet - All of the Intimidator Series are EXTREMELY quiet.

Bob longs. Clone GT. Empire Axe honestly takes the cake for me. Ease of maintainence, cheap price, nice workings, smooth shot, no macro, good ergos (I like it) not too hefty weight.
For like those super high ends, im gonna have to stick with the macdev clone gt, which is whisper quiet compared to a luxe, or a Geo3, because its a spool, quiet, and decently efficient.

Is there a jack of all trades car? No, not really. You use the right tool for the job. Even though a minivan comes close, you aint gonna use it to transport a load of gravel.

You have to compromise on something. And that goes for just about all things in life. All-in one printer/scanner, paintball markers, and women. No matter how high end they are...

For the most part, all of those high end guns do everything well. The difference between them is just that; each does something better than the others.

Its much cheaper than most of the high ends too actually.

Autococker maybe? mech, electronic, and pump... also performs just as good as just about anything else, is quiet, decently efficient, some of them are really light, and they are cheap to come by depending on which model you get. I think the autococker gets my vote.

Reliability is my issue with autocockers.
I've had some that always work well. Others will work well on Saturday and will be out of timing and leaking like a mofo on Sunday.

Automag RT. You can get a used one for less than 500, will never fail and rarely needs any maintenance, will never chop a ball even without eyes, and can keep up on the xball field just as well as in the woods. My backup if not main gun is always my Tac-One.

Second the RT Automag vote. I have had a mag in my gear bag pretty much since I bought my first one new back in 98 or 99. It's just a marker i can always depend on in any style of game.

Yep, all my guns rotate somewhat depending on my mood and such, but the 2 things that never leave my bag are my phantom and 'mag.

Plus nothing like having a battalion paintball day and ripping it up with a SC marker.
