One Gun For Life???

If You Could Only Buy One Gun For Life, What Would You Buy??? I've Owned Several Mini's And Axes And Now Have A Nt11 Which I Like The Most. Some Guys Seem To Be On A Never Ending Quest For The Perfect Gun. In The Used Market, You Have A $1000. And Is The Only Gun You'll Ever Own...what Would U Buy???

If I could have just one marker, it would be a Cotton Candy STO AutoCocker with the original slide frame. You don't really need another gun. Want to make it tournament-ready? Slap an E2 on her and be done with it. Want to play pump? Pump-kit that sucker. Stock class? No problem!
It covers almost all the bases and does so in style.

So, in this scenario is it based solely on performance? If I have to actually use the gun day-in/ day-out then I want something with a lifetime warranty (probably an axe)... If it were sheerly a performance thing, I think I'd go with something like a Clone GT. If the new TAS gun shoots anything like my old quest did, then it'll be at the top of my list in short order.

Something that will continue and not get old. BL Victory

1. Enough are sold that used parts will be avail.
2. Base gun remains basically the same just milling differences thus parts are interchangeable over the years with newer versions
3. Constant improvements to the internals with a simple engine swap
4. 5 years later its still a top end marker and in another 10 it still will be

So get a nice used Victory for $600 and then use the rest for an auto cocker karnivor , then sit back and enjoy

In paintball, a lifetime warranty is a matter of Situation. Freeflow Autocockers, Matrix, and Shockers all came with a lifetime warranty...which is now Void, because Professional Paintball closed up shop in 2006.

Virtue used to also have a no-questions-asked lifetime warranty, and we are now hearing rumblings about them canceling their warranty program.

So I wouldn't base a decision on a warranty.

If it had to be just one gun, I'd have to pick the Resurrection Autococker. It might not have the pure soul older top-end Cockers have, but it is, IMO, the best of the breed overall. And when legislation banning alkaline batteries goes into effect, I'll still be able to play.
