I don't have any experience with mags so I do not know if they have those qualities, if they do then I would say the mag is the better choice.
automags are easy on the upkeep to, from what my friends have told me u can clean them with a hammer

All I can say is my one buddy started with a Trilogy and another with an SP-1. The Trilogy is several years old and shoots like it is new, and it was a hell of a deal, even boughten new. They're hard to go wrong with.

SP-1s are also great little markers, but they're (physically) huge compared to even some meatier guns like 06/07 Cyborgs. I think a Vibe could be a good deal.

Mags would be good too... just stay away from Tippmann. In my group, I work on everyone's markers when they're down and my work bench usually has a 98C on it, or some ****ty Spyder.

sorry to go off topic but WHERE can I find said deals?


On topic however I would agree with all the suggestion to shell out some cash and get a good marker, I have a spyder, 98, and Jt tac-5 that my friends use and they are ALWAYS having problems. Might as well get quality now rather than later.

paintballonline.com has the sale on four cheap starter guns. The $50 trilly is in there. Heck of a deal.

I never did like the 98c's, and everything else tippmann has made since then. If you want a gun you can hammer nails with, throw in a river for a few weeks, fish it out and go play a game with it, get an old prolite, carbine, or pro/carb.

Mags are great and very reliable, but not as easy to work on as an old tippmann.

I agree to go with the automag. especially on the point that tippmans dont hold value for crap but you can get a decent return on a nice automag. I love my prolite (but would not buy any recent tippman like a 98c or anything like that) and I wouldnt put a lot of money into it but I havent had to as its been UBER reliable and just f***ing sweet all in all I mean when you have a prolite you are basically rambo

I agree with the BT4 as a marker that is indistuctable. But get him a rottor and then he has a hopper that will work on anything he gets in the future. As to the Triligy It is a good marker and an easy conversion to a pump if he wants to go that way latter. I use both of these markers and have had no problems with eather one of them and have used the BT4 for about 3 years now and my son uses a BT 4 Delta elite and he just loves it. { he is handycapped and has no problems with it's weight}

Rotor is overkill really, especially for a beginning Rec player. Save like $100 and buy a Halo Too or a used Halo or something.
