Epiphany actually good?

I've been reading around and I've found mixed reviews...

I am considering buying one for around 150 and I really don't know if it'll be worth it.

Can some epiphany owners help me with my decision because I am really stummped and don't know what to do..

if you spend a bit more, you can get a fusion, a mini, or a pmr with UL frame which is a much better choice.

I'm happy with mine so far. Yeah there are better guns out there, but I only play like every other weekend. It's easy to take apart to clean and shoots great out of the box.

I don't mean to sound rude in the least bit, but what are you getting at?

It's not that what your saying isn't helpful, it's just that I don't get it.

me?

basically, what i am trying to say here is that this gun is pretty solid stock. the QEV allows you to cycle faster, but more importantly for us, allows you more shots per tank. clamping feednecks arent a must (if you remove the o-rings in the stock feedneck a halo or empire reloader B will fit well), but will help. The bolt in this gun is fairly light weight, the gun is a bit heavy, but not too bad. the stock trigger is amazing.

the only real draw-back (imo) is the fact that you have to take the whole thing apart to clean it. but even then, i have gotten to the point where it takes me next to no time to do so, its just that during a tournament if you are pressed for time the cleaning would suck.

and i provided the video to let you see how the gun fires (granted its in a racket ball court so it sounds wayyyy louder than it is).

the epiphany is a great paintball marker as it comes in the box, and there are a ton of upgrades out there for it. definitely consider it. if you have any other questions just ask.

dude in that video needs to learn to keep his gun up at all times ready to snap. not coming out, then bringing the gun up, then shooting.


i love epiphany's, look much better than any ion imo, feel a lot better, and to me the most amazing trigger ever. Very smooth shooting, with a qev its very effiecent and hardly any kick

yo pm me if you would like to buy my epiph for 175 all stock, but the feedneck, but i could throw in a tank and hopper and up it to 225

but i like the gun alot its shoots very constantly accurate the only downside to it is the weight, but if your strong enough to bench a bar then it really doesn't matter i would definetly chooes this gun over a mini, way more reliable plus smart parts has a sweet warranty plan

I disagree with this. Ok sure, if you can get a GEN 2 mini for $230 or less, that may be a better value, but it's $80 more than what you're looking at. PMR's are questionable. I don't know many owners who like them. An epiphany in good shape for $150 is fair deal. If you're an entry level speedballer, it's perfect. If you're pretty sure you're gonna get very heavy into paintball hold out for a mini or a used protege, or etek 2
