"ok well im a total newb. my one friend said if i break the 4-way then i cant fix it and the gun is trashed. is this true. would i be better off with a A-5. im soo confused."
What kind of paintball do you play that you would trash a part that's a part of the body?
Yes it would be true, but I have never seen someone trash a Trilogy integrated 4-way.
If you broke the actuator rod, all you would need to do is have someone machine a new one. Maybe an adjustable one.
