The evolution of the paintball gun industry

It has already been 30 years since the paintball marker was invented. In the early years of paintball, the pioneers of the sport played with a marking device, normally used by the forest rangers to identify the trees that needed to be cut, as well as farmers in order to mark specific cows.

Paintball markers started very simple, they were made with a metal carcass and a rough metal handle and they were equipped with a barrel that used a pump action to shoot the paintballs. At the time the paintballs used were extremely hard, compared to those we have nowadays. Since the sport of paintball has evolved tremendously over the years, several major paintball companies have started to manufacture markers, specifically to practice this sport.

To this day, we have more than 100 companies that produce paintball equipment and that include many different product lines. After your mask, your gun is the most crucial piece of equipment. In addition, most of the time, when there are new releases on different products, they are often for masks or paintball markers.

Moreover, there are several factors to consider when choosing your paintball marker. As always, we highly recommend that you know what style you feel comfortable playing in, secondly, how you use your marker and lastly the look you want!

There are several categories of paintball markers with different styles: those that are more realistic for military simulations (Milsim), often used in combination with magfed magazines, or Speedball markers, designed for maximum performance and often used for competition paintball.

Only a small number of players today continue to play with a “pump action” type of gun. The “pump-action” markers feature semi-automatic pump pistols or handguns, sometimes even used as a main weapon, offering an extra challenge in terms of a limited number of paintballs. The important thing is to use the marker of your choice, as long as it is consistent with the game style you wish to play. The rate of fire, the easy maintenance, the unlimited possibilities when accessorizing the marker, the comfort and the compatibility of the parts are just a few of them.
