>I am interested in getting into the sport and want to purchase a used,
>low tournament level marker
this is going to sound stupid as you probably know this, but there is also the
option of buying a new gun as well. i would recommend that over anything, but
you do what fits your liking...and your wallet.
>Is an AutoMag considered a tournament
like the other guy said, i wouldn't use the term tourney-level marker. i have
seen my fair share of spyders (as much as autocockers) in tournaments, no lie.
>What makes an AutoMag better than a Spyder TL or Core
well, the automag is more soundly-built (word?). automags are very simplistic
in design, and have very few parts to them. don't think of one gun being more
accurate than another; just think of it being that one has better quality parts
and better craftsmanship, etc. what makes a kia optima better/worse than a
honda accord? they're both considered luxury cars. they both come w/ about
the same shit. it's just that the honda will most likely last you longer, has
better leather/cd/etc, etc etc.
>Which of these guns is the most accurate (taking into
>consideration barrell upgrades)
guns are accurate for certain reasons. my definition of accuracy is
consistency....that's it. if a gun hooks the same amount every time, it's
accurate. no ifs, ands, or buts.
there are many factors to an accurate gun. the most important is barrel/paint
match. you must have a good quality paintball and it must be the same size as
the barrel it shoots out of. the barrel also must have a nice smooth surface
w/ the right amount/style of porting, etc.
some factors to consistency are:
-high-pressure air/nitrogen/compressed air source as opposed to co2.
-regulator which keeps the gun shooting at a constant psi every shot
>What is an AutoMag's rate of fire?
someone else will have to answer this. i'm gonna guess and say 11bps.
