Depends on what you want improved on your gun. Do you want more fire power?

I personally dont like the idea of electronic triggers just because i would probably forget to charge the battery or accidently get it wet but if you want a fire power upgrade you could get that or a repsonse trigger. You could get a better hopper or get a air thru stock and remote. Its up to you really. Just play with your gun and decide what you want to improve about your gun.

Well, I hate to be the one to burst your bubble, but don't try to be a sniper. It doesn't work in paintball. All guns shoot the same distance, with generally the same accuracy (disregarding the Flatline and Apex), so right there defeats the purpose. You can hide around being sneaky and using cover to your advantage, but every woodsballer is supposed to do that anyway. It just doesn't work. Plus, scopes really don't help. Paintball guns aren't near accurate enough, and using a scope gives you tunnel-vision, so you really can't tell what's going on around you as well. Trust me, don't be afraid to rush out there having a good time! "Sniping" is seldom, if ever, worth it.

Also, I don't know what upgrades are available for BT's...

Do they make an R/T for the BTs?  (Where's Carl when you need him?)

I thought you got one a while back, I stand corrected.

No he doesn't, he enjoys it.

but don't try to be a sniper. It doesn't work in paintball.

You can hide around being sneaky and using cover to your advantage, but every woodsballer is supposed to do that anyway.

Whether DeTrevni enjoys bubble bursting or not, he his mostly right

It just doesn't work. Plus, scopes really don't help.

Except for scouting terrain ahead when playing on really large fields.

Paintball guns aren't near accurate enough, and using a scope gives you tunnel-vision, so you really can't tell what's going on around you as well.

Tunnel vision usually = a walk off of the field while wearing someone else's paint.

Trust me, don't be afraid to rush out there having a good time! "Sniping" is seldom, if ever, worth it.

Good advice.

Also, I don't know what upgrades are available for BT's...

Where's someone who owns a BT* when you need them.



On a related topic, my problem with this specific marker is why any company would put a vertical feed and a mil-sim sight rail on the same marker.

basically most A-5 parts with fit on a BT-4 so if they make R/Ts for an A-5 it should fit right onto my gun

Meh. I've had mixed experiences with using scopes to "spot." Usually, it's overkill and added bulk.

Doesnt look too bad, though I'm in agreement with everything DeTrevni threw out there.

i considered an e-trigger on my 98 custom but i can shoot fast enough i really dont have to get one.

i know they will shoot faster than i can but i would go for  a expansion chamber to help control the gasses better.  and prevent the tank from freezing like my first time out. 

that is if you can find one for a BT.

and that machine gun barrel is a $80 cosmetic item thats actually a bit worse accuracy wise than the stock barrels.  or IMO atleast.

 

DeTrevni said it best.  scopes are useless on the field.  some ppl use them to spot targets then use "iron" sights to shoot but if you want a sight on the gun get a red dot scope.  they have no magnification but are useful within the ranges of the paintball guns.

well i got the machine gun barrel used for like 45 or 50 dollars i actually think it shoots a little more consistent that my stock barrel (meaning less random terribly inaccurate shots) but theres sort of a lot of drag... i usually play with my rifle barrel sometimes i just put the machine gun barrel on for show
