In Topic: My paintball field claims it uses top grade paint?

21 October 2014 - 08:16 PM

The field paint at Boston Paintball indoor is Evil...I believe specially formulated to keep mold growth down, but I'm not 100% sure about that part. I know they've used RPS/Kee paint for years...couldn't tell you exactly what it was in 2010.


In Topic: Scenario gun suggestions

Your Rail would be fine for a scenario, but if you want something more milsim looking, a GoG G1 would do nicely and come in right at $300.

It's nice when unreasonable people let you know they're unreasonable up front.

Freaks: no. Deadlywind makes a Dye-threaded Whip Tip.

Without knowing your criteria, it's hard to recommend a specific gun. What matters to you? Would you rather have:

  • A new gun with a factory warranty, or a used gun that's a better deal?
  • A gun that shoots smooth but needs more maintenance, or a gun that you don't have to work on much, but might shoot a little rougher?
  • Something that looks more like a real firearm, or a speedball gun that's lighter?
  • Do you care about a lever clamping feedneck? An on/off ASA? A longer or shorter barrel?

 

As mentioned above, most good electronic guns will require that you use high pressure air, not CO2. So you'll want to budget for an HPA tank. If you're just playing rec ball, a Halo Too would be an affordable ($55) option. The down-side would be that the shells are a little fragile and they're not tool-less. If you can spend $100, I'd go with either a Pinokio (if you don't mind the tall profile) or a used Rotor. If you can spend $150 or more, the options are all pretty good...new Rotor, Spire, or Prophecy.
