Hello there

Just played woodsball and I just fell in love lol.

I'm looking into getting a paintball gun around ~$150, I'm leaning towards a mech because I don't have to worry about charging and batteries. Also with the money saved I can get a better mask, HPA Tank, or a better barrel/hopper, with the fact that I'm starting out without anything but BDUs xD

Been an Airsoft fan for awhile but prices like these with great quality guns, I'm going for paintball. I also saw those US Army Project guns and they look nice but I'm not sure how they compare to those higher quality mechs.

If anybody has other suggestions go ahead and tell me!
The site I'm looking into purchasing from is Ultimate Paintball, but I'm not sure if they ship to Canada and how outside U.S Payments go. So if you can help with that, that would be a huge plus.

Thanks for your future help

The eNMEy is an awesome beginner marker. I like it more than any other mechanical marker ever, and even more than many electronic markers.

Can't go wrong with the GoG Enmey. There's a reason why it's the #1 recommended mech marker for new players. It shoots great, is reliable, cheap, and needs little to no maintenance. Definitely spend the money on a nice mask as that's the most important piece of gear. Then I would go for a decent carbon fiber tank and a CP 14" one piece barrel to replace the tiny stock barrel. Good luck!

I voted the Enmey. It will require a little bit more frequent maintenance than the Azodins or Spyders will but it has a lot smoother and quieter shot too it. Very pleasant little mechanical guns to shoot.

The Azodins are good choice as well though if you are looking for something that needs little to no upkeep to operate but they are definitely louder and have more kick than the Enmey will. The Azodins will also be a little more air efficient. As far as Spyders go, they are also an OK choice however the Azodins are basically Spyders with a bit higher quality components and more standard parts (Autococker barrel threads for example) so I would choose them over a Spyder myself.

Very good responses!

I will be going for the GoG eNMEy, thanks for the fast responses!

While we're at it how is the Tacamo ARC Hopper? I don't really need anything fancy, I shoot around 4-6 a sec if I need to, will it handle it? Or should I just go with the Proto Primo? And I will totally get a longer barrel when I have enough money

Try out the Azodin Kaos Deluxe 2. Its a bit over your price range but it comes with an on/off asa, clamping feed neck, 14" 2 piece barrel, regulator, and a nice light trigger pull.

If you have money left over after a mask and compressed air tank, some sort of an electronic loader is a good idea. I don't have any experience with this one but there are plenty of good options out there.

For 20 dollars more than the kp 2 you can get an extcy which comes stock with on off and a nice blackheart board, a nice trigger, a decent 14 inch barrel, and a good feedneck. Not to much the regulator is the same as a luxe.

the problem with this is he wants a mech.. he even stated so he doesn't have to deal with batteries.

GoG eNMEy is pretty much the winner lol but the electros just have settings right? Like it doesn't go full auto, you still have to tap the trigger? Like a setting is like pressing the trigger would let one ball out and letting go lets another ball out?
