    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.

    Research is your friend.



    Sure, you could argue that, I suppose, though I'm not sure what that has to do with hobby play, and it's far from the first to target a product at that niche. There...

    Couple timeline thoughts:

    SMG-60 was 1987, and .62 cal, not .60.
    SMG-68 was 1989, and yes, .68 cal.

    I'm confused. I've seen piles of hyperframes, boo-yah frames, mako frames and Kingman guns themselves from the late 90's/early 2000's that still work flawlessly. Sure, they like a full battery or a...

    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.

    Can't see your cart, but Azodin makes a fine product, though I would recommend giving the guys at Hustle a call instead of whoever that online store is.

    A comfortable size co2 bottle. 12, 14, 16, 20 oz - whatever feels good on there and gives you enough shots.

    just confirm that your local field fills co2 first.
