anyone shoot older/vintage equipment?

just wondering if we have very many paintballers that still shoot something from the 90's or early 2000's still. Like older Autocockers, shoebox shocker or Palmers Brass?

Quite a bit of my gear is older. Not uncommon to be shooting players with gear that's older than they are.

Getting that way for me, too, and I haven't even been playing that long! (coming up on 10 years). Does 10-15 year old gear count as vintage? Or is that still just "kinda old"?

My Phantom is new, but it's definitely an old school gun by modern standards.

I just bought a 2K cocker pump, that might count.

A Splatmaster, PGP pistol, and 90's Cocker are all on my wish list (and I'd definitely play with all of them!). I love old school guns, modern guns are too flashy for my tastes.

Every once in a while I dust off a 007 and use it. Otherwise I'm shooting a Phantom or Classic AutoMag. If Valken keeps consistantly boring around .684 I may go back to a PMI 1 or PGP.

The oldest marker I have is a MR1 but, I just started a couple of years ago. There are a couple of older ones I'd like to get my hands on though.

I have used the same marker for 12 years. I need to buy a rotor for it to keep up with everyone else, but I don't really care right now.

I have a modern Sheridan KP2, a Retro 7 which is a modern remake of the Nelspot 007 and a level 7 automag...

My CCM S6 is modern take on a sniper...

I have previously owned and used, PGPs, Nelspot 007s, PMI 1, plenty of phantoms including a unibody, a few autocockers...




As far as I am concerned, anything that uses batteries is not vintage...

I have a dm4, which is not old compared everything else like you guys have but I'm only 14 so its a pretty old gun for someone my age to be shooting

I'm just getting back into paintball after a long layoff. I worked on the old Greg Hastings Xbox games, the stress on working on those killed my desire to play ball for a long time. But now I'm back and the first thing I did was go look for a Trauma matrix, because it was the best gun I ever shot. Had to keep it OG. I wouldn't mind finding a vert feed shocker brick either.

My primary is a Punished KP-2df, and I always get in at least one game/insertion with the Splatmaster each time I play.

This past weekend I played with 40 other old-skool stock players rocking everything from NelSpots to DD-68s to Sheridan K2 bolt-action.

There is a lot of old gear out there still being used.
But most of the guys who use them are not the people who visit PBN.

My "newest" gun was manufactured in 2003. However, I've done so much modding/upgrading/milling to it (some of the parts are much newer) that it's not really a 2003 E-Cocker. I have yet to fire a paintball gun that equals it in terms of sheer shooting performance -- so there's no need to change anything.

Other than that, I rock my mech Cocker quite often. But I still consider that to be a "modern" gun.

Every once in awhile when I feel like pulling some muscles in my back, I'll drag out the old VM-68 equipped with a J & J Brass barrel and scare the living crap out of people. It, along with my Sheridan P-68 SC, is almost twice the age of my average opponents...
