Best gun for newbs

Hi everyone I am pretty new to paintball and, as I am currently looking to buy a gun, was wondering the best gun for a beginner that is also a good price? Up until now I have been using my brother's tippman A5 but am not the biggest fan as it is a little larger than I would like. Any advice on a good gun that ~hopefully~ meets my expectations?

I'm with you on that. The first thing I tell anyone starting to get into the sport is to buy their own mask.

Gun wise....Tippmans are the best if your just looking to play rec. Durable as all hell, and usually wont ever let you down.

If Tippmans are too large for you to use comfortably, xzmba has a good suggestion. The GoG Enmey is a fairly reliable marker that doesn't require too much maintenance. You can always move up later. But definitely get a GOOD mask first, preferably new.

I agree you should get a mask first once you get that I recommend the spyder victor you can get one for around $40 at times and it shoots straight, and is quite easy to maintain.

Make sure you have a good thermal mask. As far as beginner guns, the GoG Enmey is really good for the price. It's mechanical, but one of the only (maybe the only?) one with a built in reg so the shot is a lot smoother. It's honestly a great little gun.

Can't beat it for the price. It's the perfect blend of ease of use and a higher rate of fire.

Also, I completely agree that you need a high end mask before a nicer marker. It doesn't have to be anything crazy, you can pick up used JT Proflexes for $30-$50 all day long. The hardest part will be picking a color!

I'm proud of this thread, only one person recommended the Axe

They're garbage, just like the Mini. I've owned two, and that's only because I got a good deal on them and flipped them for profit.

Don't even worry about a gun yet if you don't have a mask. Your mask is the most important piece of equipment because that is what protects you eyes. Don't skimp out on these either. Get a high end one like the dye i4's, Virtue Vios, Grillz....etc. As for a gun GOG Enmy, Tippmann 98, if you want an electro a spyder fenix.

Like they said from a above worry about a mask then compressed air tank. After that most guns are similar. The problem is when I got to the shop I see people taking guns in there that hasn't been lubed or cleaned in months. They just set in their gear bags. As for me I picked a 2012 Spyder Fenix because like I said there was a seal busted in the reg and he didn't know how to fix, clean or oil it. So I offered him $40 and he was happy. Now it looks like



shoots perfect now
Spyder Fenix $40
Hush-bolt-44,
3Skull drop $15 and
Empire barrel kit $30
total of maybe $130

Good gun for a noob? Anything you can afford. If you're more into woodsball get a tippmann, if you want to play speedball find an electric marker you can afford. Look at BST
