What's a good backup woodsball/senario gun, needs to be:

Reliable/durable (with stand everything including rain)
Customisable (the real deal; lasers, tac lights and scopes)
Reasonabaly cheap

Something like the tippmann tango one, spyder Mr100, mr1, mr4? Anything like those

What do you have now? Pretty much any gun can stand the rain, even electros. I'd pick up a SP1, electronic, rain wont be a problem, has rails if that's your thing and only costs $125 on ansgear.

My Feedback +14/-0

Dont get a tippmann, unless your backup is an X7. And with spyders you might as well rent; just because its a backup doesnt mean you have to go with a shitty low end stacked tube blowback.
I would go with an SP1, since you're obviously into milsim.

I would probably go with a Carver One

As far as "All guns will work in the rain" I dsagree, you still need to take precautions to avoid issues. I had a Geo2 board go on me in the rain last year, and saw 3 separate Axe boards go dead in the rain.

Well the SP1 will work fine, I know when I had a Vibe I played in absolutely pouring rain and the gun worked fine. All I did was tape the barrel, I left the grips and everything else alone.

I use a carver one by far the only Tippmann worth having that has 98 internals. Dropped mine in a puddle when I ate shit picked it up shook it out and kept pounding away.
If I didn't buy so many guns for the sole purpose of fondling them i'd be a very rich man.
Am I the only one that when they see FEP QUEST they read it as FAP-QUEST then chuckle silently?

Um....

Lasers: banned at most fields. Too high a risk of some idiot blinding someone else. You won't be able to use these at any commercial field anyway, so why bother getting one?

Tac lights: are a great way to get lit up during a night game. Players have a tendency to shoot at the light. Plus they offer limited visibility unless they're bright enough to potentially blind other players.

Scopes: Paintballs don't have the range to require or make use of magnified optics. If you're into the whole red dot type sight, then fine. But don't get a scope.

My recommendation would be the SP1 as well.
