That depends on what you mean by "sniper." Do you mean firing First Strikes? Because then there is the entire Tiberius Arms lineup, the TiPX w/ gunhead adapter, the BT Trracer (actually not clip fed), the Hammer 7, MR5, and a couple others I'm forgetting.
If you mean just guns modified to look like sniper rifles (but still firing normal paint) then there are an infinite possibilities, but none that come stock with the gun.

As for Barrett-looking guns, there are a couple of guys who have modded markers to look like them. For example:

The one in the middle is pretty good. I believe Robotech on here made it.

I have yet to see a single CLIP fed paintball marker. There are however a lot of magfeds out there.


the closest to a barret would probably be a tippmann with the tacamo mag-kit and the opsgear (?) barret shroud. However there are some nice FS snipers in the works by a couple of manufacturers. The sar-12 looks quite sexy:


Then ofcourse you can build almost anything if you put your mind to it, like this m14 ebr made with a tipx and accepts milsig mags:

Yup, it's definitely called magfed not clipfed.

The answer to your question is pretty simple though: the closest thing to a barret is an SAR-12. There are other arguably better magfed markers around, but they don't have the sniper look unless you buy a bunch of aftermarket bits and even then.

(I think the smg 60 and 68 can be considered CLIP fed.)

(Thats like the concept for the hammer7)

Best is as always a matter of opinion. My t9.1 is a killer fs sniper.
Can your carmatech or paradigm do this?or this?
Or this?(stolen img) didn't feel like breaking it all the way down but you get the point.

LOL...thanks for the props eljefe!

Like you I love the look of the Barrett but about 50% of that look comes from the barrel's muzzle break. For instance, these are the two markers I've done the "Barrett" look on.



The one in the background is my Warsensor WS-66 conversion. (This is the same gun as eljefe posted just after I painted it in ACU camo.) The WS-66 was an M4/M16 replica paintball gun and, again referring to the picture eljefe posted, the marker with the M203 on it is the same kind of gun in the M4 style configuration. I removed the carry handle, put a 20" M16 barrel on the marker with the shorter M4 style shroud to give it that long barrel look, and then added the optics and OpsGear 50 cal muzzle break. This marker is NOT mag fed, the mag is purely for looks.

The marker in the foreground is my Dye DAM. It has a Lapco/Tiberius Arms FSR .683 16" barrel with the Lapco 8" Hushshot ported tip with a Lapco thread saver and Lapco 50 cal muzzle break. That muzzle break I originally got for the WS-66 before finding the OpsGear muzzle break that, I feel, looks better.

Here's the problem. Good luck finding the muzzle breaks. I want another OpsGear break for the DAM but so far the only one I found was with a M82A1 Barrett cover kit for a Tippmann A5 and 98 Custom someone was selling for about $700.

On a 98 Custom with the early Lapco style muzzle break:


On an A5 with the newer style muzzle break:


These were the only two 50 cal muzzle breaks I ever saw. I talked to Lapco at DoN and they told me that the muzzle break of theirs that I have has been out of production for some time and that while people do request they produce it again they say it's too expensive to make for what they have to sell it for. The Ops Gear break is also no longer in production. When I inquired about it during the DAM build, I was told that it too was very expensive to produce and that they were shifting to supporting airsoft more than paintball so a re-release there would seem unlikely.

I even went so far as to price out what a REAL Barrett Muzzle Break would cost (after all, .50 cal is close to .68 cal) and even that would prove to be in the neighborhood of $300-$400.

With today's options, the closest you'll get to a "Barrett" look will be the SAR. The DAM actually has the front shrouds that are CLOSE to what the Barrett's look like but without a super long barrel and that muzzle break, you'll never get the "right" look. Every other long gun I've seen people see it as a "sniper" gun but as soon as they see that muzzle break on mine it's instantly "Nice .50 cal" or "Cool, a Barrett."

A Tacamo'd X7 would probably be your best bet.
I just run a pump gun and pretend to be a sniper by running up the field and shooting people.

I just got my paradigm pro and that thing is awesome. Shooting regular paintballs is great and the FS rounds are incredible.
