I have a soft spot for a good mechanical trigger, and I have owned and shot hundreds of mechanical markers over the years. There were a few of them that just really stood out as a great marker to hit the field with.
I have a few great mechs listed below that will be great for anyone just getting into the sport to those experienced players looking for a smooth shooter to hit the field with.
My Top 7 Electronic Paintball Markers:
- Tippmann Cronus
- Azodin Kaos 2
- GoG eNMEy Pro
- Planet Eclipse EMek
- Planet Eclipse GMek Frame
- Planet Eclipse GTek M170R
- SP Shocker CVO
The Tippmann Cronus has everything a new player would want in their first marker. It looks cool, is super reliable, shoots great, and has several upgrades available to look even cooler!
This thing will keep up with any beginner and is easy enough to maintain. The fact of the matter is, this thing will just keep running and is designed to just work.
Azodin Kaos 2
The Azodin Kaos 2 is an excellent entry level marker at a great price. This marker is super simple, reliable and is a breeze to maintain. Not only that, this marker is quite a bit lighter than some other markers in its price range and comes in some really cool colors!
This marker is super simple to clean and maintain with its quick strip bolt and stacked tube design. Plus the autococker threaded barrel is easy to upgrade with plenty of options available on the market.
GOG eNMEy Pro
The GOG eNMEy Pro is one of the best beginner markers for the price. The mechanical trigger is smooth and crisp allowing you to quickly pull the trigger with ease. The marker itself handles very well in any players hands with its low recoil, quieter sound signature, and sturdy design. Plus it has an easy to disassemble bolt for quick cleaning and maintenance.
Out of the box, the eNMEy Pro comes with all the upgrades you need right out of the box! It has the gen 2 tool-less bolt system, clamping feedneck, on/off ASA, and one piece Freak Barrel with 0.689 insert.
Planet Eclipse Emek
The Emek is PE’s mechanical marker made for beginners and those looking for an exceptional marker out of the box. The proven Gama Core bolt system is super reliable and has great efficiency. Plus with its hoseless design, PAL hopper compatibility and easy to maintain design, this can be any players pick up and go marker.
Planet Eclipse Gmek
If you already have a GTek and want to play with a mech marker, upgrade it to the GMek with the mechanical upgrade frame! It is just a quick swap of the frame and solenoid, and you have a bulletproof mechanical marker!
The slider trigger is smooth and easy to shoot with no chance of shortstroking like some other mechs with pneumatic triggers. This is the best way to increase the versatility of your electro at the best price!
Planet Eclipse GTek M170R
The Gtek M170R is PE’s top of the line mechanical marker. It utilizes the awesome Gamma Core bolt system, has a true hoseless design without any transfer tubes, on/off POPS ASA, Tooless bolt disassembly, Shaft5 barrel, and full metal construction.
SP Shocker CVO
The Shocker CVO is the mechanical version of the awsome Shocker XLS. The CVO now runs at 145psi, comes with the Freak XL barrel, on/off ASA, and a comfortable stretched out frame.
