Certainly Tippmann.
Their 98s, Pro-Lites, and SL68s have made up the lion's share of most rental fleets for over two decades.

Yeah, on that list it's gotta be Tippmann, although I think Nelson, Sheridan, or TSG might be a close second. There are fields in the UK still renting Splatmasters.

I picked PE mainly because of 5man, xball, etc. and every kid who goes out and plays the next day they need an Ego because the kids at the field said so.

I didn't take into account that tippmann is a big rental gun. Which ironically the kid in my above statement probably used first.

Tippman, the rental fleets alone would win by a mile.

Tippman, however I voted for wgp because all of my friends shoot tipp's and I don't. Somebody around here has to show some love.
Autocockers are not more accurate, I'm just more accurate when I shoot autocockers.

This is the reason I chose Tippmann, they have been in the sport since the beginning.

I'd say Tippmann and would be shocked if that could be proven wrong. Their market penetration has been huge for a long time. First of all, they are strongly represented in the rental segment. Second, Tippmann markers were by far the most common semi-auto markers on every field I've played at during the 90s, like 10/1 ratio of Tippmann/other. They are still fairly common today though not as overwhelmingly so.

Due to the years of rental fleets, and millions of backyard 'ballers, I'd have to agree and say Tippmann, hands down.

Born4Evil seriously sounds like the devil himself, and its awesome. That gun is hands down the most badass gun in my mind.

Echoing many others, Tippmann mostly from rentals. Starter markers for so many people too.

Tippmann hands down. Time in production, rentals, scenario guns, entry level.
