Whenever he invited me to join, he said we'd be in tournaments, guess what he says now that we're going to wait a little longer before we get into tourneys so we can "get our skills up".


There are only 7 types of trilogies that were produced.
The go in order from lowest to highest:


  • Trilogy Sport
  • Trilogy Competition
  • Trilogy Tactical
  • Trilogy Pro
  • Trilogy Competition SF
  • Trilogy Tactical SF
  • Trilogy Pro SF


No such thing as an EXT (which you already state you knew). I understand the kid is excited about having a friend to play paintball with, but he needs to learn to tone it down a bit and research some facts before making a fool of himself in front of you.

When he's trying to get you to pay a lot for the trilogy he wants to sell you, you need to point out to him that whatever price he paid for it in the first place, the value on Autocockers has dropped drastically in the past year. Markers that used to sell for $1,200.00 new are now going for $300. Not even the almighty Karnivorr is going for more than $450 new-in-box these days.

thats what i diiiid

oh and its nice to know there are some texans in this forum, im from DFW area...anyways, yeah i definetly learned a buttload of stuff about tippys on my own and now i can take them all apart and put them back together practically with my eyes closed...even with the upgrades, learning on your own is the best way or, if you want, there is a BIG gathering each year called OKLAHOMA D-DAY...anyone whos gone to one of these please say OORAH! where you can learn quite a bit about all sorts a guns and find what intersets you the most first hand

#1 its just plain amazing

#2that where i learned about tippys and thier practically indestructibleness

#3...4000 people playing at one time if that doesnt sound fun then you need to be slapped

Wow, yeah ditch your friend.

You can still play with them, but, as people have said, find your own path.  Dont depend on them for information.  It sounds like they may be playing you, or they are very "not smart" to put it nicely.

Play with your friends if you want my advice. Just not on a team. Find your niche on the field first. And the only way to do that is play. Eventually you'll figure out what your good at, and then you'll be able to really offer something to a team.

I would agree with DeTrevni, he is giving you the purest form of BS, there is no such thing as "Hardcore" paintball as he speaks of, there is no hopper rule. You are better off playing by yourself or finding another team.

Given that it's used, $82 is too high a price to be paying when they go NIB for $100 or so on E-bay. I'd say $65-$70 w/o a hopper. What kind of hopper is it that he has anyway? And the crap he's giving you about some "hopper rule" is a load of BS.

We play big-boy style with bayonnets (i have no clue on how to spell that) straped onto the ends of our barrels with machetties (or how to spell that one, but you get my point) on our backs for close combat Texan style lol.

Anyways back to the questions, is that autococker for $82 worth it or am I getting ripped of? I'm not sure what year it is but I have played with it before and loved its handeling, quietness, and accuracy. Supposedly he said there's some Paintball rule that prevents him form throwing his hopper in with the gun for free and said I have to pay extra to get it. The 2 hoppers I have don't fit his cocker and I'm not going to do any thing to them because I'll need them for my Tippy. I'm not going to buy another hopper for the cocker (if I buy it) because he wants to be a butthole about giving ayway his hopper due to some imaginary rule that he's using as an excuse to nickel and dime me out of all my cash. But is the gun woth the cash?

by barel tapping i didnt mean actually hitting them with the barrel.  t simply means deadmanning someone.  If I got hit with a CO2 tank or a barrel i would probably have to hurt someone.  If you get the RT trigger you will be fine with CO2, especially since you live in tewas and it usually doesnt get too cold there.  if you go electronic then i recomend the HPA if you can find a place to fill it.  As for the hopper question just get the cyclone and you will have plenty of speed for woodsball or any other play you want to do.
Stay low, run fast, and hope that paintball doesn't hit your...

Hah! There's a reason his marker is named after the Egyptian god of Death.
