    Paintball Gun

    Any of you have any paintball guns that you have had good luck with? Looking at buying one and was wondering which ones you have had success with.

    I have a Tippmann A5. I really like it but I haven't played paintball in awhile.

    Tippmann guns double for hammers in a pinch. Oil them up every once in a while and it'll last forever.

    Agreed. If you're looking for cheap, durable, and relatively effective, then you cannot go wrong with a Tippman.

    If you want to spend more, I was in love with my AutoMag .68 Classic.

    Re: Paintball Gun

    A friend want to sell me a Tippman A5 with a flatline barrel, mask, 20oz tank, vest, extender, hopper for 160. It is 3 years old, he only used it once. Worth it?

    absolutely...tippmans alone run 150. Flatline (when I got mine about 8 years ago) goes for about 110-120. the rest of that pry another 65-70. That's a great deal, but you still haven't come across the most expensive part of paintballin.....the paintballs.

    I don't think you can get AutoMags anymore, can you?

    You might be able to get a used Etek2 for $200. Awesome gun for the price. Made by Planet Eclipse.

    yeah, for the a5. I had a 98 custom and my flatline looked a little different. works pretty well but you have to buy top of the line paintballs for it. Cheap ones will break more often.
