Do any paintball guns have a selection lever

Do any paintball guns have a selection lever similar to real submachine guns? In other words you could switch between single, three round burst, and full automatic was the flip of a switch.

The only one I have seen was on an old tippmann smg........ and I believe that was custom.

My old Spyder Pilot does but you need to trip through the settings using the switch on the back of the frame. Not something you're going to do in a fire fight.

"Not something you're going to do in a fire fight."

That's what I am looking for. I have an a5 and a 98 with RT setups so if i set them low enought to squeze off singles............it would be nice. I also have an ion.........so i hope to create the same setup.

Later versions of the Automag Autoresponse had a selector for 2-shot burst, and semi I think? I remember it was added to make the gun legal at all fields (since you could also remove the lever, fixing it to semi-only if needed)

From my full-auto collection:

Tippmann SMG: No lever, dual stage trigger controls sear. Some users apparently modded guns to use a lever (which presumably just acted as a trigger stop in the "Semi" position?)

Tippmann Factory F/A: 3 position lever - Safe, Semi, Full

AT-85: 3 position lever - Safe, Semi, Full

RAP-5LE: 3 position lever - Safe, Semi, Full

I don't have a Mod85 so I can't say for sure on that one.

I believe the SP-1 also has a select fire switch but I am not positive on that as it's SP, an electro and therefore icky

SP-1s have a button, not a switch. Each press of the button cycles through a mode, so it is possible to do it during a firefight (Only 3 modes; semi, burst, auto), but not as convenient as a switch.
