A lot of players want to complete their marker setup with pistols, so we just wanted to do a run-down of pistols, including price, and manufacturer details.

Rap4 (

It's safe to say pistols are one of Rap4's biggest exports, so much so they've got pages full of them. Some of the most noteworthy ones are the following:

RAM Desert Eagle Paintball Pistol (EX Version)

We actually have one of these in our team, so we can truthfully say, this thing is badass. It shoots .43 calibre paint, which is both good and bad, because while it does maintain a more realistic size, it is not usable at some fields. A full-metal slide, with actual working blowback action, makes this easily the most intimidating - and realistic - paintball pistol any of us at Black Ops Legion have ever shot.

RAP4 Combat Pistol (Black)
On sale $159.00

The Rap4 Combat Pistol works on a similar premise to the above Desert Eagle. A blowback slide, external 12g CO2 air system, and .43 cal paint make this a realistic replica of the classic Glock pistol so many people are familiar with.

T68 Gen3 Paintball Pistol
On sale $125.00

This is a very intriguing pistol. While admittedly not the most realistic looking of guns, it's got a 10-reound magazine on the top of the gun, shoots .68 cal paint, and - get this - accepts an E-Trigger. You can finally have a full-auto pistol. And, additional parts such as stocks and barrels are available, allowing you to convert your pistol into a rifle. Very nice pistol.

Tippmann (

Tippmann® TPX® Paintball Pistol

The TPX is Tippmann's venture into the pistol market. The magazine holds 8 shots, and the CO2 is only punctured on the first trigger pull, ensuring that it doesn't leak out. Now, we had some problems with the early generations of this pistol, mainly accuracy and chopping, but they have upgraded it and came out with later models, and we have heard that the problems we encountered have been - for the most part - fixed.

BT Paintball / Empire (

BT Sa-17

We can't post a link for this one because we haven't struck a deal with Empire yet, but we can tell you that it retails at around 150$, can be converted into a rifle, and uses a spring-feed magazine system along the top, seen in the picture, which is great because instead of new magazines, which can cost up to 70$ depending on the gun, you can invest 1$ into a 10 round min-pod, and reload your spring-mag. Or you can put a hopper on it, either or.

Tiberius Arms (

Tiberius T8.1

Like the SA-17, we haven't struck a deal with Tiberius, and so we can't post a direct link to the product, but we can tell you, based on our experiences with them, that these are hands-down the most accurate pistols we've seen to date. That said, they'll leave your wallet a good 300$ lighter, not counting the extra magazines, around 70$ each. But this gun can shoot First Strike paintballs, the most accurate ammo in the market. You can hit someone - with your pistol - at 500 feet. Hell of a shot, but possible. This is a very expensive, but also very accurate and reliable option.

This has been our quick run-down of pistols. We know these aren't all of them on the market, but there are a lot, so we decided to name just these ones, that we deemed noteworthy. All credit goes to the manufacturers, and please check them out.
