If I'm interpreting your question correctly, the only markers that I know of with the capability to be electro's, and mech at the same time are E-Mags, and the Tippmann Crossover.

I think the Tippmann X7 Phenom is the same way. I'm not 100% sure you can use it without a battery, but I would assume it is possible.

And for future reference, please write with respectalbe grammar. ;)

It sounds like the Tippmann Crossover is up your alley. It's electric, but can fire in semi auto without electricity if need be. Plus the price just went down to $350 for a new one.

Theres really no need for a marker that can run without batteries. A single 9-volt will last several days of play and is extremely simple to switch out if it runs out at the field.

Im pretty sure runnning without batteries was one o the Phenom's main selling points. It is internally the same as the Crossover IIRC.

No they will, for all intensive purposes the phenom is just a mag inside an x7 body.

what did I tell about doing that?

The E-Mag, X7 Phenom, and Crossover will function with or without batteries (as a semi-auto mech, in the case of the latter).
E-Mags are amazing guns, but they have a relatively archaic design compared to more modern guns (though many will argue that's their charm).

Posted Image

The problem with guns like these is that many will argue that they're trying to appease two separate groups with one design. Some people (like me), just want a mech and don't need/want an electro, while many others just want an electro and don't/want a mech. So a gun that could function as either seems like a good idea at first, but ultimately boils down to a more-or-less pointless feature. If you prefer one mode, you'll usually only use it in that one mode so it'll make more sense to not spend money on a feature that you will rarely use.

There's the handful of ones that can.

The question is: why?

I don't see a reason to have an e-gun that reverts to mechanical. If I want to play with an electro, I'll use an electro. If I want to play with a mech, I'll pick up a mech.

If your battery dies, who cares? Walk off the field, and in 2 minutes you'll be good to go again with a spare. You should always have spare batteries after all.

Da faq? If you played any tournies at all you would realize that when your gun goes down due to low battery (which is pretty pathetic if you actually do play tournies) walking off the field and making your team play without you is the worst possible thing you can do.
To OP Tippmann crossover is the only one I'm 100% sure about

If you don't check your batteries before heading out you get whats coming to you.

I was kind of hoping that tournament players would know better than to let that situation occur.

That, and it should be obvious that if you are in a tournament game, you are in the game until you're hit.

Just buy a marker with quick contacts, instead of the regular connector.
Bring batteries and an allen key.
Done.

the phrase you are looking for is "for all INTENTS AND PURPOSES". intensive purposes is nonsense and means nothing.
There are 2 kinds of people in this world. Those who think they can and those who think they can't. both of them are right.

Bringing Allen keys on the field will get you one big fat suspension where I play...n basically it's illegal

Pretty sure he means bring them to the field so you can change batteries in the pits, not try and change batteries while on the field

Yeah I know they're not allowed, but if you wanted to change on the field you need the quick contact type of connector and the snap screws that will let you open the grips without tools.
