Do paintball guns use generic Allen keys or special one for each gun? If they are generic which should I buy, I am buying a gun and it doesn't come with them, which should I buy?

It depends what marker you have. 90% of markers use standard american english (ie. 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and so on).

Most guns on the market use 'Imperial" (standard) allen keys, but a few use metric. It would help if you told us what marker you were planning on buying. 


fuck yolo

doh's right, those guns are very temperamental , and seeing that you are having to ask us this question, no offence to you of course, the nt probably will not be kind too you. if toy do however decide to buy it there are a couple of mods you can tryout as they make a hell of a difference in the shot quality

Do you guys have any tips for this gun or is it just so bad, on pb nation the reviews are really good and mike said so too in his review but here everyone seems to avoid it, why is that?

because the NT 10 was extremely finicky when it came out, the NT 11 fixed some of it's problems. it's not necessarily a horrible marker,  but the question is why  would you get it when there are tons of other markers that are essentially flawless and do it's job better than it does. DM, GEO, clone, marq victory, etc.  but if you insist on getting it make sure you READ THE MANUAL, and know what you're doing when t comes to the spacer system.

All other high ends > NT

Why risk getting something that does not work.

Take my advise with a grain of salt though, I have never shot one but heard numerous stories of them sucking.

Dye guns use Imperial/SAE allen keys. Get a set. I'd recommend separate keys in a holder, as opposed to a multi-tool style. Sometimes it's hard to maneuver those things into tight spaces (set screws in grip frames, for example.)

 

Here's an example of a set that would work: http://www.amazon.co...e/dp/B000NPR43S

have you ever experienced your hands climaxing while holding a gun? Even if you have it'll be much more intense with the NT haha
