3 Types of paintball  markers

Mechanical Paintball gun Marker

This type of marker is the most common type of gun in recreational play, and these types are usually semi automatic, so they use one paint ball per trigger pull. Both mechanical and electro use compressed air.

Electro Paintball Marker

Electric guns use a battery and solenoid to signal the trigger and it is super easy to shoot an electro gun. Both mechanical and electro use more paintballs then the pump gun because there is no need to pump between shots, but the electro has the ability to use more paintballs than a mechanical because it is easier to pull the trigger.

Electros are challenging to maintain because they have batteries which wear out, and electronic components which are vulnerable to the elements.

Valve Types

Spool Valve
Spool valves are smoother and quieter. They are stealthier. They make a “shooo” sound when fired. They also have less kick or recoil. Spools require more maintenance, such as oiling and replacing O rings. Spool valve markers usually have a single tube design.
Poppet Valve
Poppet valves are louder and make a “pop” sound when fired. Poppet valves are less fussy and low maintenance. They are also very efficient and need less babying than the spool valve. But they are loud and not at all sneaky.

Since poppet valves use a hammer/rammer to hit and open the poppet valve, which contributes the kick or recoil of a poppet gun. Poppet guns usually have a two tube design, with a few exceptions.

Pump Gun

Old School guns that are making a comeback. You pump the gun, like you would a shotgun to move the ball into the chamber. The advantage of this gun is it uses way less paint balls and forces you to ‘up’ your game.

You cannot shoot mindlessly while using a pump gun. Each shot must be, or should be, calculated.  A pump gun game is fun and challenging, and not great for newcomers, honestly. Learn the game first before considering the additional challenge a pump gun introduces.

Playing with a pump gun also makes an experienced player less intimidating to new players because they can’t get blasted by a more experienced player if the experienced player is using a one ball at a time pump gun.

Planet Eclipse LV1.1 Pro Paintball Marker

Planet Eclipse LV1.1 Pro Paintball Marker

Review

An excellent and accurate paintball marker, commonly used in tournaments. The 1.1 includes the pro barrel tip. The front grip is one solid piece that adds stability to the gun.

The valve assembly on the interior of the gun is easy on paint, because it is 40% larger that the predecessor EGO. This model has less recoil and makes less sound than the previous version.

This marker has a sensitive trigger and shots rapidly. The LV1.1 is still a poppet marker but in terms of feel, it feels like a spool marker, making it more efficient and easier to service and clean in the event of a break.

List of Pros

  • Zick Hammer, Cure Bolt.
  • Easy to maintain.
  • Poppet based, with a spool feel.
  • Efficient with air.
  • Awesome lever valve.

List of Cons

  • Pricy.

Conclusion

Easy to maintain, accurate smooth and rapid firing, a great tournament marker.

Empire Vanquish 2.0 Paintball Marker

Empire Vanquish 2.0 Paintball Marker

Review

The Empire Vanquish 2.0 is a spool valve marker that has several high end features. One of those features is a pressure sensor that displays the pressure on a high contrast OLED screen built into the handle of the marker.

Easy to maintain as all the screws use the same 3/32 hex wrench, and the push button bolt and hinged frame allow easy access. This gun is smooth, long, and allows you to easily hold a lane.

The gun features finer details like  a clamping feed neck an oil monitor to give maintenance alerts, a beeper that gives the baller audio feedback, micro USB computer interface that allows upgrades and mode changes (to all preset tournament firing modes, plus custom modes and fully automatic) using only the marker, micro USB cable and your computer.

Peak and average ROF are displayed on screen.

List of Pros

  • Detailed on-screen display.
  • Self monitoring marker.
  • USB interface for updates and mode changes.
  • Responsive and accurate, no lag time.
  • Spool valve marker.

List of Cons

  • None. Ok, price. Scope and sight not included.

Conclusion

The most technically advanced marker we reviewed, every detail was considered when designing this masterpiece.

Lapco 14″ Autococker SNAPSHOT 2pc Paintball Barrel

Lapco 14" Autococker SNAPSHOT 2pc Paintball Barrel

Review

The LAPCO  2 piece Autococker Snapshot is made with aircraft grade aluminum. It is the most accurate and precision made barrel you can find.

LAPCO, through much trial and error, has perfected the art of “cylindricity’ which is a combination of perfectly round AND perfectly straight. Combining round and straight give a barrel the best accuracy and this barrel has that.

LAPCO does their boring and machining in house to keep  tight control over quality, going as far and finely finishing the inside surface of the barrel and carefully placing the porting holes to balance the pressure inside the barrel when the ball is shot.

All of these details add up to the most carefully manufactured, well thought out, tried and tested, ACCURATE barrel in the market today.

List of Pros

  • Made with aircraft grade aluminum.
  • Balanced porting.
  • Precision boring and perfect cylindricity.
  • The most accurate barrel on the market.

List of Cons

  • Only comes in black.

Conclusion

Absolutely the most accurate paintball barrel we reviewed.

That’s it for our reviews. We hope our guide helps you find the most accurate paintball gun, and most accurate paintball barrel for your game.
