Pop along to

mostly uk players forum, are you after a tourney gun (light , fast , bling)

Or a recball/mill sim (black, heavy , robust)

you will get everything you need there

Spend as much as you can afford on your gas supply system for your marker

(players prefer to call them markers rather than guns :wink: )

Then your barrel , Marker, Loader in that order

The more consistent your gas pressure into your marker is, the flatter your shots will be,
The closer your barrel bore matches your paint caliber, the more accurate your shot will be

Paint pellets are normall .68 in caliber, when I was getting out it was starting to change to.50 (dunno why)
Anyway, the outside ambient temp can affect your paint pellets expansion size, so buy a barrel system that you can change & choose your calibers with via a sleeved insert system

I could go on for hours & hours :oops: :roll: :lol:
( I used to play in a tourney team :wink: )

& buy decent goggles , JT are always tome of the best (get a thermal lense, they dont steam up :wink: )

But watch out for damaged s/h thermal lense's as they tend to steam up more than single layer lenses i find!
That said, when i play, chances of my single layer lense steaming up is next to nil :P

Pinkbike have a paintball section too. Just dont use paypal gift.
