What is the most accurate gun, or overall best paintball sniper weapon?

Your choice CAN be a gun with a different barrel, or other customizations on it.

My Gun:
Tippmann A-5
Dogleg Stock
A-5A2 Foregrip
12" Bigshot
Remote Line
..Who cares what the other stuff is?...

There is no such thing as snipers in paintball. It is physically impossible to  be a sniper when everyone has thee same range.

Pretty much accuracy is determined by paint to bore match. A good paint to bore will give you excellent accuracy everytime.

Paint/barrel match is important, but there are plenty of other factors as well.  Some guns ARE more accurate/consistent than others, and one must consider the air source, any regulators, and other factors.

Nobody know exactly which gun/combination is most accurate.  Nobody has done a survey of guns.  Besides, new technology is available all the time.

If you're looking to upgrade a gun to perfect accuracy and consistancy, i hope you're willing to put a good $800 into upgrades :)

Autocockers (or any closed bolt marker) with a good paint-bore match are the most accurate marker (at low rates of fire). Closed bolt markers lose their higher accuracy at high ROF because they dont have time to stop the bolt before firing, basically making them open bolt.

Right on... Cockers and other closed bolt markers are noticeably more
accurate than open bolt markers such as Tippmanns. Don't get me wrong...

Yep - and the FACTS are that while some guns mechanisms may be more consistent than others, there is absolutely ZERO evidence that firing from a closed bolt position is more accurate than firing from an open bolt position.  In fact, what little evidence there is points to there being no difference at all.

1st. off paintball "markers" are NOT and I repeat are NOT weapons
2nd. Any paintball marker can be accurate with the right paint to barrel match.

Im PRETTY SURE that when you can guess where your ball is going to land due to consistency, then your shooting is going to be a little (sarcasm) more accurate. Firing from a closed bolt position is more accurate because the ball isnt being pushed forward by the bolt when it is fired like it is in an open bolt system.

However, at higher ROF the ball IS still moving because the valve is releasing the gas (Co2 or compressed air) as the bolt comes into the firing position because it needs to make its way back to the breech and chamber another ball.

This is a fine theory - and that is all it is:  theory.  Like I said, there is ZERO evidence for this.  What little evidence there is (a mediocre study by WARPIG) indicates no difference between open bolt and closed bolt.  So let me repeat myself:  ZERO evidence.

And, as you point out yourself, is that this theory breaks down at high ROF anyway.  I have a hard time imagining how this "not moving" theory would work at 20bps...
