The 5 out of 10, finding the exact middle.
So I was pondering numerical review scores. Generally meaningless, but it would be nice to give them some meaning.
Now for me, to judge something accurately I need a base line. The average. Where if something is worse than the base line the score is 0-4.9, if it's better than the base line it's 5.1-10, and if it's the same, well it's the same.
So, what would be the most average paintball gun? The perfect 5 out of 10. As of right now of course, as time goes by the base line will naturally move.

You might want to be a bit more articulate in the review criteria- In other words, what areas are to be considered? Reliability, Efficiency, etc.

I think the idea was not to overly analyze the marker, just provide a generic rating.
However, the larger the scale the more accurate the ratings and the more different criteria the better off you are as well. There is no real setting a "benchmark" unless you simply pick one, get the "scores" for it and then base all others off of that. And you may find out that what you use for your benchmark may change over years as you find out that what you initially used may be horrible in comparison to all others.
So your best bet would actually be to quantify as many different variables as possible.... shots per oz of CO2 or ci of air, max range, accuracy metrics...etc...etc.
