The Best Paintball Guns 2021
The choice of paintball markers on the market is huge. This is a reflection of the game’s unstoppable growth in popularity not just in the United States but all over the world. There are markers for every budget, every level of play and every terrain, which is great - but it does mean that it can be really hard to make the right decision, whether you’re looking to upgrade or get into the game as a beginner. At Paintball Deals, we are enthusiasts who are dedicated to finding and selling the very best paintball equipment from the most reliable manufacturers. We’ve put together a quick guide to some of the very best buys for 2020. Some are cheap and some are expensive, but they’ve all got something to recommend them.
This is a relatively new entry and one of the most advanced available. As far as mag-fed models go, it is among the most versatile and reliable, but it can also be hopper-fed if that’s your preference. Lightweight and compact, it builds on the classic Tippmann design, combining the best of the basic and more tactical models. It feeds extremely well and gives pinpoint accuracy for a very reasonable price.
Perfect for newcomers to the game but also ideal for those at the intermediate level, the Tippmann A5 is an excellent long-term investment with plenty of options for upgrades. With the Tippmann patented cyclone feed system, it can do without batteries and uses the same air that fires the gun. With firing speeds of 15 balls per second and an auto rapid firing option, it’s a high-performance machine and a great all-around marker.
Building on the success of the Empire Mini, the new GS incorporates the latest technology and offers several update options. It is lightweight, very well-balanced and delivers astounding accuracy with a firing rate of up to 23 balls per second. It has a sturdy rubber grip and a micro-switch trigger that offers excellent resistance. Its compact size might not suit everyone, but if you’re looking for a small, easily maneuverable gun, this may be the one for you.
The EMEK is a great entry-level marker, which makes it very popular with beginners. Even though the price may be modest, the quality certainly isn’t. Planet Eclipse has become one of the market leaders by producing markers to suit every ability and price range. Its gas use is highly efficient, and its exclusive Gamma Core technology makes for exceptional accuracy while reducing recoil and kickback. Easy internal access makes maintenance simple.
If you have a little more to spend, there’s the EMF MG100, a mag-fed marker constructed with state-of-the-art technology to guarantee the kind of performance and reliability rarely encountered in mag-fed equipment. It also has a hopper-fed mode, but either way, we know you’ll be impressed with its durability, speed and accuracy. It represents a real advance in marker technology.
Another winner from Empire, the Axe is a well-priced, high-quality paintball marker with an extended grip and a simple push-button action to detach all major parts for maintenance and cleaning. It comes with a fairly hefty price tag, but with this powerful, accurate marker, you really do get what you pay for.
Dye Rize CZR
The Dye Rize range of paintball markers is extremely popular around the world with everyone from casual players to those who participate at tournament level. Its low price belies the reliability of its performance and its range of features, like the precision barrel, adjustable clamping feed neck, and the new Rize Fuse bolt. It offers high-end features at an affordable price.
This is another excellent choice for beginners. It is very straightforward to operate, compact and efficient. It doesn’t come with a host of extra features but it gives great value, with a choice of CO2 or HPA and a firing rate of up to 20 bps. It is also much lighter than previous models in the range.
HK Army Luxe
If money is no object, you may find this marker hard to resist. It’s the best gun yet produced by DLX technologies, building on the high-end features of previous models to create an outstandingly efficient, fast, reliable, durable and smooth shooting gun. You'll be the envy of your teammates!
Finally, this mag-fed paintball pistol's military design is the height of cool, and the marker gives great accuracy and efficiency. It's a perfect sidearm for use in those tight spots.
