Another budget-priced semi-automatic from Tippmann, the 98 Platinum Series is not only strong and reliable; it also offers the capacity for several upgrades, including the e-trigger kit, giving you several firing modes, response trigger for increased trigger speed and cyclone feed system for synchronized paintball feeding to reduce breakage and jamming.
GOG is another brand name you can rely on for quality and performance at great prices.

Back in the 1990s, Kingman Paintball introduced the Spyder, a budget-level semi-automatic marker that emphasized simplicity of design, ease of maintenance and great performance.

The Fenix is an electronic marker that has three firing modes, can fire at 25bps, and works with both compressed air and CO2.
We couldn’t leave out this remarkable contribution from no less illustrious a source than the U.S. Army. Manufactured by Tippmann, its sleek, all-black M-16 style makes it a highly desirable marker. But you’re getting much more than just an authentic look; it's reasonably light, even with added upgrades, with great performance and accuracy. Included in the price is a shroud, magazine and carry handle.
Any one of these great-value markers will give you a fantastic start in this fabulous sport.
