Help me choose an NT

Recently got back into paintball and I've been shooting a dm6 for a couple months now but would like to sell and upgrade to a better marker. Preferably one that is much lighter, I usually end the day with tired arms because of the weight

I recently held an Nt11 at NPPL Huntington and it was amazing, it was super light and very pointable. The ergonomics were amazing and I knew i had to have it.

My question to everyone would be that I have heard a lot of talk about people putting down nt's. Chopping problems, leaking frequently etc. After browsing some threads it seems to me like lazy people will be lazy and not maintain their marker. I would imagine after all the dye updates to it, it would be rather nice shooting.

Are NT problems frequent even with current updates to the marker (eye pipe, notched tip etc).

Does the extra $125 justify buying an nt11 over an nt10. (used of course)

NT's are great guns. You justhave to maintain them by cleaning and lubing the bolt after every use. Also Billy Wing does a Mod to it that makes them quieter, smoother and a little more efficient than they already are. you can contact him on here and work it out. I used to shoot a DM and now love my Nt11.

The eyepipe works well just have to be carful not to crack it by over tightening the barrel

The tip is handled with the Billy Wing Mod.

nt and nt11 are almost the same internally with small minor changes.

This. The biggest reason to get an nt11 over an nt10 (to me) would be the fact that it is not as old. Other than that there are only small changes. Just read up on the spacers and bolt tips to find out which one suits you. That's where I see people running into issues because they aren't used to tuning a gun this way and are too lazy to find out how to do it.

I've done a little research on bolt spacers and spacer body and inserts. I could really care less about gaining efficiency and adding kick to it. (If im at the field, i obviously have unlimited fills).

Seems like the best option would be to look for one that comes with the green insert, and preferably the spacers.

But it should run just fine at 280-300fps with just the green insert right?

I have had an NT 10 then modded to a 10.5 for over 2 years and I have never had an issue with my NT. We have also had 3 other Nts on the team and still never had any problems with them. What I would recommend maybe getting a refurbished one from Zephyer sports or from trademygun.com and this is why.I have found that people that tend to have issues with NTs are the guys that are always tweaking them. I have found NTs are not to be tweeked with. set it and forget it. I really dont think I have adjusted my velocity on the NT in over 9 months. I recommend them, they are really nice shooters if people stop trying to fix whats not broke.

I couldn't agree more man, why fix what isn't broken. Reading up on it, the HPR is not to be messed with once set at 130-150 psi any less and the bolt may not cycle anymore and the noid leaks to vent the extra pressure. May have to invest in a pressure tester even if i rarely use it. Maybe pick up the new update kit from ansgear also.

I picked up a new one, I was breaking a ball every 5th shot, sent it back and they found the problem - the black bumper in the bolt stuck out. I received it back two months ago, I have shot 11 - 13 cases through it (twice a week practicing) using evil = 1 broken ball so far since returned.

The NT's are an incredible gun, small, light, quiet and they'll throw darts for you. Mine operates at 100 psi, I haven't adjusted the reg and it's always 295 (+ or - 5) I'm also stretching the cleaning time to one in every 3 cases with no problems.

BUY ONE
