That's a pretty broad statement without narrowing it down a bit more. There are crap guns and then there are GOOD guns.

Did you have one particular brand/style in mind? STBB, sydarm, mag fed?

Personally I have ran a tac 8. T9 with conv. Kit to rifle and a tipx.

Tac 8. Great shooter was fairly long range (could easily shoot as far as my 98c and just as accurate.

Quick barrel change was a nice feature.

Didn't care for the trigger pull or the shape of the trigger either.

Gun was heavy.

Didn't care for how big the grip was (had trouble fitting my hand around them as they are designed to fit those heavy mags they are better suited for bigger hands.

Now on to my new favorite marker. His name is Ivan. He is a tippmann tipx. I absolutely love using this marker.

The trufeed 7 ball mags are very reliable with little maintenance.

The original barrel is a crack shooters worst nightmare anywhere less than 50 yards. Dang thing shoots dead straight. You can get roughly 20 good shots out of one twelvie.

I have the 12 ball mags too. They can be a little finicky at times but a little powdered graphite and loosening the screws gets them right back in line.

You can use barrel adapters if you remove the front block (I do this for an apex 2 barrel setup for when I jump in on a speedball event)

Remote line goes right in the back of the marker. This is slightly awkward at first but easy to get used to.

Most importantly with the finger grooves on the grip this helps improve marker control with sweaty or paint covered hands and it just fits better and feels right.

Much lighter than a tac 8 also.

you hit on things that i dont like about it, weight, mags are expensive, barrels to are outrageous for this thing price wise, the grip is a little big but not to bad, and i would need a whole new setup to carry mags,

i would like something that is a little cheaper, easier to change around how i want for different styles of play, and has a bottom line holes so i can attatch a stock or tank, the stock on my t9 hits my mask and is just disapointing for me cause its like a real fire arm and you cant really put it close to your face to aim like i want to, plus i can carry more paint for less weight, those t9 mags are heavy, i like the design just heavy

Springfeeds are superior to box magazines in every aspect except for speed of reloading, and I will go to my grave repeating that. They are more reliable, gentler on paint, easier to clean, and MUCH cheaper to use. To address the reloading disadvantage, you simply mod them for a top loading port and spring guide and you have pretty much caught up to a traditional magazine.

Altought sa17 are dependable. Mine is crap for consistency. Depending on paint it goes from +-20 to +-25 in fps.

well if i got the SA17 i would get the .684 insert and then slap a eigen barrel on it, so i dont think consistency woud be a bother to me, although i woud probably stick with twelvies so i woudnt know
