Accuracy is mostly based off the paint you shoot.

Shoot crappy paint you get crappy accuracy, better paint better accuracy. It also depends on your able to aim and have gun control..

all guns have the same accuracy. Worry about other things.

Bob long marker over mini, but yeah what everyone else said, a marker does not determine how straight you shoot.

That is not true at all.

Accuracy depends on consistency, quality of paint, and paint/barrel fit.

I think he meant the effect of the marker itself on the setup. so all markers with the same barrel and same paint will perform the same in other words

Which marker is the most "accurate" depends largely on the how the user interacts with the ergonomics, and varies widely. If you have a chance to hold or shoot various markers in your price range, that will help you to make a good decision.

Well the least accurate of the three is going to be the dp because of the garbage reg that it comes with.

go buy yourself gear and play.

Oh yeah, buy some AKALMP Extreme Lube (akalmp.com)

Helps a good lot with the gun. Just a few squirts before screwing in your tank before every day of play.


If you are curious about more, look at the hierarchy of buying thread I made in the beginner section.

a good barrel always helps. I always felt I was most accurate with my death stix barrel kit!

All else being the same, these are the non-human factors in accuracy:

Paint
Barrel
Gun

Crappy paint through any barrel and any gun will shoot like CRAP!

Once you get high quality paint, get a decent barrel (if your gun doesn't already come with one). There are many, many, many, many, many different tests on accuracy, each one disproving another, so here is the round-about summery of what is most accurate:

Slight underbore or overbore is most accurate
bore matching is below that
significant underbore or overbore provide the worst results

Once you have a decent barrel or barrel kit, the gun is the last factor. Things like consistency, kick, etc, do have small effects on accuracy. However, having a decent gun or better, the differences will be so insignificantly small that the human element would cancel out any benefits.

Which leads to the biggest factor; you. Paintballs, even on the most accurate setup, you have to compensate for arch, movement, etc.

Here is a true story. I had a new CF Dye Boomstick with about 6 pods of paint (valken field). Used a new BL G6R and a new Etek 3 AM. then shot at a tree about 20 yards away. I gave both guns to two guys to shoot back to back to simply provide their thoughts (both have very little experience with paintball), But not before I had just shot both guns using the same paint and barrel. I was able to make a small softball size imprint on the tree with the G6R and wasn't able to do the same with the Etek. I didn't say anything. I asked the other two guys which gun they liked better and why. They said the G6R was way more accurate and smooth. I still didn't respond, but I thought the same exact thing. I also own a NT11 and really do think that the gun has a big role on accuracy as well as paint to bore match. Because in this test, the barrels and paint were the same.

How about consistancy? Were both guns the same fps and the same consistancy +or-? That makes a huge difference in accuracy too..

For me accuracy has a lot to do with the point ability of a gun. Obviously consistent regs and good paint to bore match is vital. But one further some guns just fit you as a person better. For me the best fit is the victory. It fit my hands perfectly and for me leads to better point ability which leads to better precived accuracy. This is why I switched from a g6r back to a Vic. For me the same is true with the dm and nt. the dm feels more natural in my hands which helps it to feel more accurate to me.

Go to the field or your local shop and go through them. In this way they will support what they sell you, better for both parties involved.

You forget the dodgy? DP regs work great. I've consistently been +/- 2 or three over the chrono with mine with the red piston seat.

I'd probably get try and snag a BL 5th gen, if at all possible. A vice or protege will be superb.
