Your most reliable/abused gun (Bring Pictures)

Hey guys I was reading an article on a phantom that went through a house fire and still looked good ! Just wondering if people had stories/ pictures of markers they have loved, abused, fixed or been through it all but they keep on shooting.

Myself it would be my first gun, VL Orion that still gets used by friends that dont have their own gear. Ive sand blasted the blue off, dremel'd some milling and its been under water many time. Just recently the bolt wear was so bad it would stick after every shot. Took a brick and sanded the edges down and it now shoots like new !

My Brass Eagle Cobra, I bought that gun in and around 1989 when it came out and played it in every kind of weather and used to do dive rolls between bunkers driving into the ground (My younger days lol) and she still is shooting fine till this day.

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.

My Mini



When I sold it there were only a few minor and hardly noticable scratches even though it'd been dragged through the dirt, smashed into a tree, and even thrown (Protip, don't shoot someone 22 times if you don't want them mad). All in all it's the marker I owned the longest in-season and the marker I've played with the most, I had it for 4 months and put about 25 cases through it. Only thing I really didn't like was the trigger, if KEE released a variant of the Mini with an Axe trigger (Idgaf about the microswitch) and foregrip I'd jump on it again almost as fast as I'd jump on a Proton with OLED.

My favorite part was that it didn't go down, ever. I only stopped using it when the detent fell off when I was at the tower (same game as that picture) and sold it a week later.

Ill agree with you 100% , I picked mine up because I couldnt afford anything else at the time and planned to sell right away but its stuck with it and use mine constantly, trading between markers. Never smashed or abused mine but still it has yet to go down on me.

My 2002 Gz timmy, previously owned by Alex lundqvist of Ground Zero/NYX. I bought a box of random timmy parts and assembled a complete gun from those parts. The anno is a blue/white fade that aparently is a 1 of 2 rarety.

This marker has failed twice since i got it 3 years ago, both times the internal hose blew off when i aired it up at the beginning of the day, and that is an easy fix.
Its taken dives, drops, throws and chops and still runs like clockwork. Its been loaned out to countless rentals as an fire-power upgrade and it has never let me down on the field.

This marker has seen well over 100 cases of paint (propably closer to 200, i lsot count) without any other maitenance then cleaning the barrel and wiping of the bolt from time to time.

Only gun I've ever abused was my Stingrays 15 years ago. Even that was just "abuse" in the form of a been with a spraycan, a hacksaw, and a bookmark on the STING webpage. It worked great for the two years I used it.

I take care of my shot now. Still play hard, but I'd never throw, drown, or otherwise molest my Phantom.

How/why did you shoot somebody 22 times?

my s6 got it in 07 and have been blasting people non stop since.

seen its fare share of abuse, rainy days and sand but she keeps chugging. worst thing i had happen was i had to replace the valve one time because it was the older style they didn't make rebuildable cupseals for.

I know my buddy has atleast a couple markers (first gen geo's) that he says he will never sell or an etek and he plans to use them until there beyond repair. He keeps care of them and plays with them but it would be neat to see the age in these markers just from use. Its like that old car you run into the ground because you love it no matter the condition

Idk why, but to me sometimes seeing guns with anno wear and DIY mods like grip tape gives them character and appeals to me over some wall hangers. I should change that title from abused guns to USED I guess
