Needed CO2 powered high rate of fire marker.

My former boss called me today looking for a paintball marker. He doesn't know much about paintball so he gave me these guidelines:

*Must be CO2 powered
*Accurate (I told him get a good barrel)
*High rate of fire
*Reliable
*ease of use / put a tank on and go (no tuning)

what should I recomend? I have been playing pump for so long that I don't know whatís out there thatís co2 powered semi....

he has been told to stay away from tippmann by a local paintball shop so he is now against them. I can try but I don't know what to expect from him.

He will be using this as a training aid for reacting to an ambush. him being the ambush.

thanks guys.

Define high rate of fire.

He could go with a classic mag, with an anti-syphon tank. So long as he's not too crazy with the trigger it ought to be alright.

e-framed Spyder, honestly.

It can be field stripped in seconds, cleaned and reassembled easily. Parts are all over the place, and are reasonable in price. They love CO2, are as accurate as the barrel will allow, and can do semi, 3 round, 6 round and FA, depending on the frame that it has. Plus, you can find them for less than $100.

I was thinking that but I haven't had much luck with spyders lately. the new ones seem to eat o-rings.... I think I need to make an electro kit for a VM-68.....

Mags are out... I need army idiot prof......
I instantly thought of them but tuning a mag is out of the question for him....

rate of fire being 10+ better than stock tippmann.... I am looking on Actionvillage and compulsive to read up... can the new pneumatic / electronic x7 phenom (SP?) run on CO2?

Based on my knowledge of mech Spyders, I would have to agree. Just make sure you get a decent base marker before adding to it. Many Spyder models have awkward proprietary parts and other annoyances.

If you want to get into the pricier range, perhaps an ICE Epic? I think Mayvik has some real-game experience with the Epic (at Castle if I remember correctly) so he might be able to weigh in.

*wink, wink* That one has eyes, but is in great shape. Meant to be a loaner for a friend, but all of mine now play.

Stay away from the MR and VS series. Look at the classic series. An e-99 or similar.

In addition, the slightly older classic series have a grand total of one size o-ring (-015), so it's stupid easy to maintain.

Edit: While some Spyders have stupid proprietary things, like front blocks, there are plenty of $5 front blocks out there with standard ASA threads. Almost all the popular barrels come in Spyder threads, CCM makes Spyder feednecks, there are no threads, just holes or no-holes. The bottomline will be offset, which is stupid, but another $5 part will let you use a standard ASA of your choice.
