.68 Caliber
Side Cocking
20-in Barrel

Designed for police and military training scenarios, the WG-65 is an accurate simulation of the real thing. This semi-automatic version shoots standard .68 caliber paintballs using either compressed air or CO2. Because of its duty as a training tool, the construction is extremely rugged and durable, requiring minimal maintenance. All the features you would expect are there, right down to the collapsible telescoping stock, fully adjustable military-style sights, and sling loop.
The rear velocity adjuster and push safety make this marker acceptable for use at most fields for casual or scenario play. Using a standard or electronic 200-round loader, this marker emulates the action and recoil of its military counterpart. The vertical adapter accepts standard paintball tanks but this marker is best suited for a remote line to get the full effect.
The WG-65 is NOT A TOY and is a virtually exact replica of the real thing. Do not carry this marker in public or in the passenger compartment of your vehicle. This is one of the finest replica markers ever made.
Product Availability 
The Armotech WG-65 A2 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Review: The Armotech WG-65 is a standard blow back marker that is also a replica of today's M16A2. Unlike the WG-65 M4 version, the A2 comes with a twenty inch barrel that uses VM68II threading. Because of the longer barrel, it allows the shooter fire the marker using tighter groupings due to the distance between the rear and front sights. It comes with a full butt-stock which is very durable. The handguards are also durable and can take a beating for those that like to play rough in their paintball games. Gas wise, it's a big hog when using CO2 and HPA. But that is a given due to the length of the barrel. You might also have trouble in CQB (close-quarter battle) thought.

This marker is for the scenario player in mind. Disassembling and reassembling the marker is very easy. The marker should come with a detailed instruction manual that will explain and in's and out's of the WG-65. If it doesn't, then you can easily download a PDF file of the manual which was made by Armotech's own Forum members and administrators.
Conclusion: The WG-65 A2 is an excellent marker and I would take it over any tournament-style marker any day. This is the IDEAL marker for modern-war games scenario players.

Review: Excellent woodsball marker. Never has failed me when I use it to snipe, the 20" barrel helps a lot. With a scope, bi-pod and barrel extension makes it a great sniper marker to use outdoors. Not recommended for indoor use because of the size of the marker itself. Never had any problems with my marker at all. Very accurate shots even though the bore size of the barrel is 0.689.
Conclusion: Great sniping marker and large assualt gun. Built very strong and tough. I love my marker.

Good sniper
Weaknesses: This gun is Very heavy and very big so its very hard to manouver with

Review: This gun is a nice marker and a very nice gun for scenario games. Its a nice sniper.

This gun however i do not recommend to smaller players because this gun is HUGE and HEAVY.


If you love the realistic kind of marker and a good sniper then this is a good one for you.

READ THIS: there is no velocity adjuster on this marker so that means you have to take it apart nad cut the spring or put a new one in when you chrono it. i have sat out 3 games by just keep taking it apart and putting it back together with a new spring.
Conclusion: Good marker but could use improvements
