A full break down of the models of paintball guns reviewed is available in the link.
Planet Eclipse GTEK 170R
This gun is Ideal for stealth play as it is so quiet. Because of how efficiently it uses the air, it means that fewer refills mid game are required.
It does come with an expensive price tag and a poor quality trigger though.
Tippmann 98 Custom
A highly customizable gun that is super durable and so will last a very long time regardless of how roughly used it is.
When adding different accessories to the paintball gun, it can quickly become very heavy to carry.
Planet Eclipse Etha 2
Most of the parts on this gun can be easily upgraded, as well as being dismantled for easier cleaning.
Because it is super loud, it is not ideal for use in those games where stealth and deception are required.
Empire Paintball Axe 2.0
Boasting a metal on metal trigger feel, it gives for a firing experience that is highly realistic.
With it having an exterior that is all aluminium, any signs of wear and tear are much more visible.
Planet Eclipse Emek 100
No batteries are required with this gun as it has a completely mechanical operation.
However, for this very reason, it is not suited to faster style games, such as speedball.
Azodin KP3.5 KAOS
As a result of the paintball gun’s ergonomic design, it is really comfortable to use, no matter what hand you hold it in.
When it comes to modification or upgrades, there is very little that can be done to this.
Tippmann Cronus Tactical
The gun comes with a good level of performance given its relatively affordable price tag.
Because it is so heavy it is not ideal for use in games such as speedball.
Kingman Spyder Victor
Ideal for beginners given the fact that it produces very little recoil when fired.
When aiming at targets further than 40 ft away, it becomes inaccurate.
Because the gun is realistically weighted and sized, it is ideal for use in firearm training.
However, when it is used in conditions that are wet or dirty, it does not perform very well and it can be tricky to change out the CO2 cartridges.
Tippmann A5 Sniper
The 16 inch long barrel coupled with high firing pressure, means that the gun has an accuracy range of up to 250 ft.
The fact that it has a long barrel means that it is difficult to maneuver whilst out playing in the field.
Empire Paintball Mini GS
Because of the electro pneumatic firing system that it has, there is very minimal recoil when firing it.
With it having a compact design, it is not well suited to those individuals who have large hands.
