Selecting the Right Paintball Gun
Magazine-fed paintballs are generally the first port of call when looking at military-themed paintball guns. Magazines are the traditional paint ball choice, and are usually the best choice of course, especially if you prefer one-hand play. The Mag Pump system on these paint balls makes them extremely realistic, and allows you to pump them up to over a dozen shells in less than a minute! These types of paint ball markers are excellent for close-quarter battle scenarios, such as ambushes or small-scale operations where tactical situations can be the most thrilling. A magazine-fed marker makes for an excellent choice when it comes to building the fastest possible team, since it's possible to fire multiple shots per magazine.
If your mission is to work in a team to take out as much enemy property as possible, then you'll want to consider one of the many military paintball guns that are available. The magazine-fed system is very useful when working in a group to cover as much ground as possible. The pump system on these tactical paint ball markers allows for a high number of rounds to be fired before reloading is required. This allows your team to move as quickly as possible to cover the field, while being very aware of your surroundings at all times.
Magazine-fed markers don't have the recoil effects associated with other types of military paintball guns, which is one of the primary reasons they are so popular. With a magazine-fed marker, your team will never be slowed down by recoil, allowing them to cover the field as fast as possible. Because of this, a high number of rounds can be loaded into the marker, allowing your team to quickly move from one location to another. You'll also be able to adjust the bolt of your tactical marker, allowing you to switch from rapid firing to a more comfortable, slow firing mode, should the need arise.
These two types of military paintball guns are both excellent choices. However, you should keep in mind what characteristics each of them have, and then make a decision based on which type would be best for you. First, you should look at how strong each of these military paintball guns is. Each of the guns has their own strength level, as well as the quality of the material that it is made out of, so it's important to think about what you will be using the gun for before making a final decision on which one to buy.
For example, the pump system used on these two military paintball guns is very different. The pump system used on this type of marker is a spring-loaded system, rather than an electronic type. Because of this, it is a little more likely to jam, but it can be a lot more reliable. This is one of the only disadvantages of a spring-loaded pump, however, as the jams can be loud. You should probably keep a close eye on this if you're using a spring-loaded system.
In addition to the strength of the system that is used for both the pump and the firing pin, there are a few other factors that you should consider when looking for the perfect military paintball guns for you. These factors include the options available to you, the specific type of shot you plan on taking (match, tournament, target) and the types of shells that are available. For example, the options available to you will vary depending on what type of shell you are using. There are basically three types of shells; lead core, steel core and plastic.
Of course, the best paintball guns are going to be those that are of high quality, come with good options and have a good build quality. One of the things that many people do not think about is build quality. Many of the cheaper military paintball guns will not be built very well and will not last very long. If you are going to be using a piece of equipment for an extended period of time, it is absolutely essential that you make sure that the gun is built well and is durable.
There are several different types of mechanical reloading mechanisms available to you in today's day and age, including bolt-action, magazine fed, and the semi-automatic (as in, you pull the trigger once, not again). Each of these has its advantages and disadvantages. Magazine fed ones, for example, are great if you plan on firing your marker many times in a row (since you aren't pumping the gun, the CO2 builds up inside the tank and comes out firing on its own) - however, they require you to cocking the marker after each shot, whereas a bolt-action mechanism will fire multiple shots in a single pull of the trigger (the bolt will rotate and fire each time). Mechanical reloading mechanisms also need manual work such as loading and unloading the clips or shells. Lastly, you have the fully automatic mechanism, which shoots out automatically without any additional work - but this type of system is only recommended for experienced military users.
