4 Year hiatus, looking to get back in. Suggestions

So I played back in high school VERY frequently. Mainly low end electric markers, and higher end mech markers back then. Also used my ACI Hornet pump constantly.

I am getting back into it, and really dont know what type of marker to get. I figured Ill let you guys know my playstyle and maybe get some ideas from you. Currently the gun on my list is the Azodin Kaos as per the good reviews and relatively low cost.

So I enjoy woodsball style of play. The fields I goto are a good mix of bunkers for speedball, but spread enough and enough trees for a woodsball player to compete well. I normally do NOT lay down paint like a maniac, and tend to hide and shoot only a few balls at a target at a time. Using the ACI Hornet (pump) I became pretty good at laying down 3-5 paintballs and getting a hit. I like that style.

So with that said, I think a relatively "accurate" gun is a requirement. I used the tippman 98 a few weeks ago and thought it was ok in that area. Id like it to be a little less loud and heavy then the tippman though. Again, I dont need a 20-BPS marker. As I probably wont put an electric hopper on it. The mods I assume I will get is remote gas line, and mayber a 14-16" ported barrel.

TL;DR - Im looking for a marker that is somewhat quiet, good price, low maintenance, that does NOT have to shoot 15bps as I dont play like that anyways.

Thanks in advance guys, hope you can give me some good recommendatins

I would have a look at the new Hammer 7 by Spyder. Pump action, Duel Feed Mag's - so First Strike or .68 cal, or you can use the hopper attachment and use it as such. Built in auto-trigger - plenty of options out of the box at $130. For a mech, I would suggest an automag, very easy to work on - cleaning is a breeze - submerge in warm soapy water and fire a few times and once dry - a few drops of oil in the ASA, air it up and fire a few shots. Various models out there - used for $100 up to $2000. Great shooting guns!

Since you like pump, go on pbnation and get a Trilogy Pump. Inexpensive (usually can be found for $60-$80), fairly lightweight, takes cocker barrels (since it was WGP), decent looking, and you can put a SWEET slide trigger on it down the road (big sucker for slide frames, hate mech hinges).

Gotta say autococker pump, trilogy pump, phantom pump, bt traccer, spyder hammer 7 or even the azodin kaos pump because it has similar lower eternals as the autococker

Cool guns! Im checking those out now. I actually still have the ACI hornet. Was looking at a semi-auto for this gun. Still not crossing anything off the list though and will check those guns out.


EDIT: also want to mention I will be using CO2.

You can still find classic cockers around cheap if you want mech. Find one with a slide frame and it'll be just like you never stopped playing.

So I searched for automags, trilogies, minimags etc. Seems around 100 bucks gets you a pretty beat gun. So I started to look at used tippmanns. If you have a choice, would a Tippmann 98 used for $60 be worth it, or would a brand new Azodin Kaos be a better choice? Like I said, a CP 14-16in barrel is probably the only real upgrade the guns would see.

gotta say the automag is a great marker they never go down and they will shoot better than most mechanical markers
the sp1 is a great gun with a nice smaller profile for a tactical marker
