Went with Tippmann because, yeah, that's 80-90% of the rental markers at my field, and 50+% of the owned markers. However, I think that BT/Empire should have been on the list because there's a ton of minis and BT4 variants kicking around too.

Oh... You mean Ben Tippmann 4 variants. Yeah.

It's that average number of owners combined with how long Tippmann has been around.

And since they've been around since the beginning.... They have a 20 something year head start on the kee. A valuable head start, since the late 90s and early 2k boasted an estimated 6 million players worldwide. Poor math aside, those estimates are down to 2 million these days. If kee eliminated Tippmann from the market, it might take them 60 years to catch up.

Ps... I'm not a Tippmann fan in the slightest. But I have to admit to having a dozen of them in my collection. Owning one seems Effing inevitable.

Agreed in full.

That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.

It's possible Brass Eagle came out a little earlier than Tippmann, but I'm not sure- even if they did, though, Tippy had a clear edge in production even back then.

AGD didn't start making a gun until '90, Kingman until '95 and Smart Parts 'til '96. DYE didn't start making a marker 'til... what, the Matrix in '00 or '01? PE didn't start making a full marker 'til something like '02 or '03, and by that time, there were well over half a million Tippmanns out there.

Doc.
Um I don't disagree with everyone's statement of Tippmann being the winner. But I do want to give a little bit of knowledge by saying, WGP was born in 85. Tippmann does not pre date it.

-I stand corrected, if true.

I wasn't sure when Bud came out with the first Sniper, but I do know he spent at least a year hand-making them in his garage, before ramping up true mass-production with the Sniper-2.

Of course, if you want to get technical, Tippmann was around as a company prior to their switch to paintball. Originally they made miniature machine guns (like this half-scale Browning 1919A4 air-cooled) basically as collector's items.

The Gun Control Act of 1986 put the stop to new production of full-auto guns for civillian use, so Tippmann was stuck with a factory full of machines and employees, but no product they could legally build.

He'd heard of this new sport of paintball, did a little research, and eventually started producing the SL-68 pump. The rest, as they say, is history.

Doc.

Very cool! I didn't know that about Tippmann. Doesn't surprise me that they made real guns though but wasn't expecting mini machine guns! Awesome!

Here's a Lil proof of wgp '85
