So I've paintballed before and I have some extra money laying around which I want to spend on getting into the sport. I'm giving myself a $300 budget on just the marker itself, and Im looking for a marker that is lightweight, reliable, and highly accurate at pretty far down range. Any reccomendations?
You could look at an Etha or Axe used for between $200-300. Both are lightweight and reliable. Accuracy usually comes down to paint quality and cleanliness of the marker, breech, and barrel, regardless of what type of marker.
If you hunt long and hard enough you can usually find a really good deal. I just picked up a Geo 2.05, Ninja 45/45, and v3 Rotor for $500 a week ago after searching for a few weeks.
