Post What are the most popular colors for paintball guns?

What do you think the most popular colors (solid or a combination) are for a stock paintball gun?

Polished or dust?

Just post your response. If we get lots of repetition, I'd love to have a poll, but I honestly don't know where to start with options.

Remember, we are looking for a stock colors - not patterns or something custom. And we are looking for something that will appeal to the masses, not a one off.

Feel free to post pics!

I tease people a lot about colors for guns, but my top two choices would be black and black. Polished and then dust. If I was trying to order them by popularity and not just my own preference, I'd still probably choose black twice but put dust first.

If I had to come up with top 5, that's harder so I'll have to give it some thought.

Not sure on numbers but you can't go wrong with black. It's universal with all gear colour (clothes) that's why the majority of hopper sales are likely black. As far as polished or gloss.. depends on the markers milling for me personally. I prefer ripper style cuts with polish since it looks like liquid. Straight lines look good in dust or gloss

hrm, you do have an interesting pallet choice... but I prefer black.



I see a red gun and I want it anodized black.

I agree black is always good, but I prefer green.

I wonder if we could get some sales statistics from ANS or a manufacturer.

I tend to like solid colored markers. Everything from the grips to screws in one color.

Mostly in black tho...

Id be willing to guess the 5 most popular colors in order are black, pure/silver, red, blue and then green.

Black has to be by far the most popular.

For me I would pick anything neutral like black,grey,white with a mix of neutral color parts. If I had to pick any gun with some crazy colors it would be dust brown with gloss teal parts like they had with Ego09 at one point.

EDIT: Red has to be up there as well.

I'd say the most popular is Dust Black. However, I also think the look of a Dark Grey with lighter Grey accents is pretty cool. Grey/Green and Grey/Blue are nice as well.

solid flat black body with one other color for the accents/parts. Black body, blue/red/green/white parts has always been simple and clean.

I would say black is the most popular but I like Green also. The Emerald GEO4/LV1.6 is pretty sweet. The dust Olive CVO/Luxes are real purdy too.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
