What is Mag Fed Paintball?

Mag Fed Paintball is a new style of playing paintball. It might seem like just regular old paintball, but it has a different twist. Gone are the giant hoppers on top of the gun, gone are the tanks screwed into the grip, for the most part anyway. Mag Fed Paintball is defined by the paintball gun but is much more than what it seems. The reason marker is different is because it is able to use magazines that hold paints and use a spring to push them into the paintball gun after the previous one is shot. The magazines come in a variety of size from seven-round magazine to thirty-round magazines, all the way up to even 100 round drums and 350 round box magazines. That is where the style gets its name from; the way paintballs are loaded into your paintball marker. However, it is also so much more than that. Mag Fed Paintball has a massive community around it where thousands of people will get together for the weekend and play paintball.

One of the neatest features of Mag Fed Paintball is that everyone builds their marker up a little differently; from different kinds of sights to forgrips and stocks and any other part for a gun that you can think to put on there. Another unique feature of Mag Fed Paintball is that it is quite common to see every player in some sort of tactical gear like a molle vest or plate carriers. Mag Fed Paintball lets the players do something normally not done in regular paintball or speedball and that is they get to play war. Teams will have communications, night vision, tanks, all sorts of stuff and playing in one of the Mag Fed Paintball big games can be a ton of fun. You do not have to dress up and only play at Mag Fed Events to have fun with a Mag Fed Paintball gun though. These guns work great and will get you out there playing which is the most important part of paintball right? If you have ever wanted to be a paintball sniper Mag Fed Paintball guns are definitely a great way to look the part and to more importantly have the equipment to do just that. Many Mag Fed Paintball Markers are capable of shooting a new type of paintball called the First Strike Round. This little guy is similar to a regular paintball but with the big difference of it has a rigid, ribbed skirt. This skirt helps the paintball spiral in the air and get much more distance and fly much more accurately. A First Strike Round will fly up to 400 feet compared to a regular paintball flight of 200 feet when shot at 300 feet per second. That double distance combined with the more military look of Mag Fed guns and you can really build your own paintball sniper rifle. Below is a list of popular Mag Fed markers and a brief description. Check them out.
