My Ego 7. Feed it air and paint, fire it about 20 times or so before hitting the chrono because the (cp) reg tends to stick after it's been sitting, and then feed it a new battery every 2 years or so. Other than that it just works.
I bought it used for dirt cheap with a tank because it had a 'leak'. One of the plugs on the reg needed fresh teflon tape.

I bought an automag x-valve for my old '91 around 2005 when my son and I started playing a lot of scenarios. I was trying to keep up with our team's timmies and cyborgs. That thing digested more paint than I could afford in the next five years. I thought it had a seal failure last year, but it just needed cleaning. I had played woodsball tournaments with the classic valve and CO2. I knew the x-valve on HPA would be fast, but I was surprised at how matter-of-fact it ran at speed, for longer than I could play.
I have also been pleased with my Mechanix M-pact half finger gloves. the velcro at the wrist is getting weak, and the rubber backing at the tips is just starting to pull away, but they have worn very well. I bought extras years ago because they were comfortable and protective. I'll have to start looking for those.
some things are stickier than others

Without a doubt, my Diablo D13 Pants I purchased back in 06, used them on every outing and only had to do a couple little stitches from snags.
BTW, if you guys see one on the market with a 34ish waist in black PM me! I have been looking for a second pair for long events. I can only get snuck up on so many times before I need to change
Old pic, but they look the same now as they did back then

I had to buy a new cyclone feed, new clamshell half and new gripframe.
The CP barrel, however, isnt even scratched and still shoots like new.
Conversely, i dropped by J&J ceramic barrel on a hardwood floor once and it never shot the same.
Oh! And my CP barrel also survived me beating my friend with it after he put my A5 back in my hands without so much as a word that anything had happened to it.. I only noticed when i thought the grip felt funny and looked down.
CP barrels, man. Good stuff.

My coworkers were mortified when I told them I like to shoot people. They didn't know what paintball was.

JT Revvy 9v, although it now has Empire Reloader guts. The Reloader's shell shattered from a gnarly hit, couldn't let the internals go to waste. But it's always the durability of soft goods that impresses me.
A couple of my harnesses have survived some abuse. First gen Valken Redemption pack held togeter through lots of recball and 3 yrs of tourneys. Still have a Redz Dimensionz 3-pod pack from '03. Stitching & velcro held strong on both. Redz pack is my only pack now (that holds standard pods). Both outlasted an old NXe Elevation harness, which suffered worn velcro and ripped rubber tabs.
But most surprising are a pair of old Proto pants. I think they're from '05, and have lasted through crawling, falling, baseball slides and poor-decision knee slides through turf, dirt, twigs, gravel, unbroken monster balls (which is all of them), and occasionally other teammates. No rips, tears, holes. They shine though worn. Sadly, they've outlasted me, because they don't fit anymore.
