Supernova with original *short* barrel, quick disconnect remote *sometimes not, but mostly*, 20 ounce CO2 bottle or a 68ci 3000 HPA bottle.
You used to be able to get the longer ported barrel for this Marker but its almost impossible to find them now since Airstar went out of bussiness. Maybe a secondary regulator but that can be taken care of using HPA with a regulated valve. There is no big need to upgrade past *out of box on this one unless you just want it to be an electro which Section 8 paintball used to do but I belive they went belly up on doing this also. Will check around and try and update this if I can but it doesn't look promising.
Quite, consistent, honestly one of the best guns i've ever used/owned, *Unique*
The company is no-more it is a rarity tough to fix if not familiar.
The only real problems you'll ever have with this gun should be A) working on it if you ever have to, B) finding replacement parts if you ever need them, C) people always discriminate against what they dont understand. This gun is pretty durable, it had a problem when they first came out yes, but when that was fixed on them they were as tough as any Model 98 Tippmann out there. I bought mine used from Triggertyme in Columbia, SC from the proshop for $100 and a 12v revolution to go with it and the other guns I was using at the time. I had never seen anything like it, and being a mechanicaly inclined and curious sort i had the guys there show me how to strip it down and reasemble it and explain the inner workings of this gun (which they were more than happy to do). The first time i played with it was the next day at one of thier 24 hour senario games so yes it got a trial by fire and I only had one problem that day which was my own stupidity and not the guns fault so I can not blame it. These guns are sewing machines and i had to let a few of my teammates and other friends fiddle with it to and everyone loved it and I was offered $100 more than I payed for it from 2 of these people who both incidently own Autocockers with more than $600 in them. If you can find one for a good price pick it up, try it and maybe one day someone will revive one of the greatest Marker Guns that has been seen in paintball from its conception in the 80's. If this gun were still avalible today in 2007 i'd give it a 9.8/10 because nothing is totaly perfect but this one is close, but because of circumstances out of our control i have to give it a 8/10
If you find one buy it if thier not insane on its price, and someone PLEASE revive this gun's design and get it back out there Nova owners are a few and far between crowd as it is now imagine 5 years from now....
