    Sigh. Research, research, research.

    Tagline TS1 was 1994
    mag-fed mega-z was 1996

    Well before that, dating back to the same year (1987) as the SMG-60, there was this:

    Benchmark, Dye and ST sliders are $100 lately. The ANS are slightly less desirable due to using '97 trigger plates and the stigma of the ANS brand lasering.

    that 'cocker went for $96... someone is going to part out the frame for $70 and the Dye barrel for $30 and still have most of a 'cocker to sell. slap a $5 hinge on it and it's a complete gun.

    Couple timeline thoughts:

    SMG-68 was 1989, and yes, .68 cal.

    Frankly, there's no need for full-auto in paintball. Don't get sucked into the arms race - just play to have fun.

    where I'm from, most fields don't allow it, anyways.

    I'd go slightly bigger on the air tank, or just stick with CO2 for a while.

    From what I've seen, the V-Max was made of cheap plastic, popcorned, and the battery door broke, but obviously YMMV.

    That's actually not a CO2 tank - that's a 35 cubic inch, 3000 psi HPA tank. A bit small for most markers - a fill may be good for only around 350 shots, depending on the efficiency of your gun.

    Ninja makes a great product. You looking at CO2 or HPA? The Cronus will be perfectly happy with either, and CO2 would be a lot cheaper to start with.
