Talking Just starting paintball and need my first gun

Hey guys. I'm new here and I am just looking to get my first paintball gun. I am a 14 year old from Newbrunswick, Canada. At the place where I play they are selling a EGO 06 for $150 I am pondering getting that gun or not. I really don't wan't to pay that much for my first gun. If anyone has a full set ( gun, hopper, and compressed air tank) for sale could you please let me know. Thanks

I'm probably gonna get blasted for saying this, but I think you should go buy a simple mechanical beginner's set up. Look up the Tippmann gryphon. They have a beginner's pack, that comes with gun, tank, hopper, and mask. I'd spend the extra cash on a great mask and go out and enjoy the sport.

This way you won't dump so much cash on something you may not like.

Sure you can't shoot as fast as everyone else, but you won't end up like so many other players who get a great gun to start with, and end up just spraying paint instead of knowing how to play.

Thumbs up

I was wondering if you could tell me if a stryker emx 1000 with a 20oz canister of co2 and a viewloder electric hopper and a tippman mask would be a good deal for $100?

This would probably be a better deal for $100. The Strykers have extremely easy maintenance, but they aren't very good guns. Even by beginner's standards.

That tippmann has all the same things, minus an electronic hopper.
In the meantime, you could go buy yourself a better mask, as the tippmann ones aren't very good.

Remember not to skimp on the mask. It's the most important piece of equipment you'll own.

Nah, The Empire ER3.

For stock, it's by far the best new mechanical gun I've shot so far.

Much nicer than the tippmann and much easier to maintain and deal with.


Honestly, I do this for friends starting the sport on a tight budget:

JT Proflex

Empire ER3

48/3000 HPA tank by Guerrilla or KEE (Empire/JT/BE/PMI/Invert/Etc) (I would say ninja, but this is the third time on my brand new tank I have to replace one of their ****ty tank bonnets since the threads keep destroying themselves over use so fast) or if you can just pick up ANY 48/3000 tank and find yourself a high pressure output Crossfire Stainless Steel (not SS, these ones are shiny silver with a red band) 3000psi regulator to put on it.

Viewloader "Revvy" or ReVLution as they were marketed.

CP .685 12" spyder threaded barrel.


This will get you the consistency (for a mech, it's actually really good), accuracy (the CP barrel is one of the best spyder threaded barrels around, especially for the price. The .685 will work great with ALL paint across the board and the 12" will get you some range the stock one fails to provide), and will let you have a gun that's fed consistently without the worry of chopping (revvy).

On top of it all, the air source is, well, an air source. The Gun needs at least 550 PSI to operate properly, so you may be able to get away with an adjustable regulator'd Ninja tank in stock configuration if you can manage the thread damage or an extra $30 for an NDZ thread saver on/off extension (which will DEFINITELY make the ninja tank a worthy buy).

And finally, the mask which I think is the best in the world FOR GOOD REASON, the JT Proflex. Unbelievable versatile, super breathable, totally customizable, lightweight, allows for a great range of vision, and all the parts are incredibly cheap for it, too.

Just make sure you buy a second strap for the flex mask if it doesn't come with it and slam it in there to double strap it. Extra ear/head protection and gets that mask on there super nice and snug.


If you get the tank, barrel, and mask used, you will definitely manage all that for less than the price of that Ego6. Which is still a ****ty buy. Ego6s are definitely solid for $150, but they're not much of a... fun... gun to shoot.

Honestly if you really want a good beginner gun you should look at an Upped Ion...now I know people are gonna comment on this post and be like oh don't get an ion they suck and stuff like that but here on pbn you can get some very nice and fully upped ions for around 100$ or a little more in great condition, also those guns are not just cheap but if you find one with an upgraded board you can usually set the gun to 12.5 bps which if you are looking into playing speedball that is exactly what you need

And a c02 tank thats how I started now I have an ego 11 an i4 mask and good other gear just take your time and explore paintball you may even like pump I played pump for1/2 of a year and I ENJOYED it just beacause you can shoot 12 balls per second doesnt mean your a good player
