Best Marker that will accept CO2

Looking for a quality maker that will accept CO2. I play only woodsball in a rural area and we have no way to fill air. Long range accuracy is the most important thing to me, but I also don't want a huge gun. Previously had a 98 and I was happy with it, but I would like something better. <$600 or so please. Thanks for any suggestions.

Range is a product of velocity, unless you're using backspin barrels, so that's not exactly an issue.

All of the GOG markers, and most of the Smart Parts ones before them, can be run on CO2. Yes, even Shockers. I had a Smart Parts Vibe that ran great on CO2. Of course, anti-siphon is pretty much a must with a setup of CO2 and faster guns.

The bigger question is how much are you willing to spend on the air setup, rather than the marker. An anti-siphon tube in the tank along with a female and male Palmer's stabilizer, or a bottom line and inline dual maxflo setup will go a long way in reducing liquid CO2 that gets through as well keeping pressure input to the marker consistent. With proper air management you can run any marker on CO2, its just often cheaper to get an HPA tank than dual reg a marker and set the tank(s) up with an anti-siphon.

Unfortunately, the best markers out there do not accept co2. Ones that do simply do not compare in the grand scheme of things. However, to be productive I would say any of the Tippmann markers that are co 2 compatible are a solid bet since they will not get thrashed by using it.

The Proto rail requires an adapter for co2 otherwise you will need a new rail promptly after gassing it up with your tank as the electronics will break soon after.

Kid ran the vibe/envy all summer with antisiphon co2. He doesn't shoot much more than a hopper per game so it suited his play style. still keeping that one around because its quiet and reliable. Love it in the woods. He usually goes through a 16oz and a 9oz per day and no issues or deep freezes.
Fact I just added a new trigger, clamp feed, and techt bolt to it since I already added a Blackheart board. Spent more on this than my used dm6 or protege. Quietest marker I've owned so far.
