Well, depends on your particular stance of the semantics of the term "mag fed" but if we're talking vertical, removable magazine in the grip, there are only two (TPX/TiPX and T8/8.1), and compared to most pistols they're actually pretty new.

But pistols started with a horizontal rock-and-cock style tube feed, like the PGP and Nelspot 007. Eventually when semi-auto platforms became reliable enough for widespread use, you had the horizontal springfeed, like what's on the Zeus, Delta 68, T68, PT Extreme, Squall, Sydarm, etc, etc, etc... These can all still be considered "mag fed", just the magazine is just non-detachable and needs to be refilled while still on the gun. But paintball seems to adopt the stance that if it's not a removable box mag, it's not a magazine.

Correction: there are only two .68 mag-fed pistols. They're also the KT Eraser and Chaser, and a few RAP4/RAM pistols. These, however, are in .43.
There's also the Crossman 3357, but that's not quite mag-fed.

Would you count the old Eagle 68?

Put a 10rd stick feed and use 10rd tubes, faster reloads too

How do you think the FXR when used with a TPX will compare to milsig mk3? I'm looking to bye a mag fed and both of these seem to be in my price range.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
