CO2 or Compressed Air
The Armotech Pluto unquestionably offers the most bang for the buck in speedball. You won't find a better marker for the money anywhere. Comes with drop forward and bottom line! Available in blue and red and green.
The Armotech Pluto is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

higher airflow valve than a stock spyder. Method of quickstrip is nice. Spyder thread barrel
Really needs to have a lot of parts rethought to be more upgradeable
Its a double stack blowback. Theres nothing that makes this stand out in a crowd, exept for name. I first had a problem of it chopping like mad then I changed barrels which did away with most of the chopping, then an electric hopper cured the rest. The recoil spring is interchangable with my wifes custom 98. Might be able to get other parts to swap but expect to have a drill press and a dremel.
After the upgrades mentioned it works great
Its a good marker for entry, and makes for a great backup/ loaner. There are far too many small things that make upgrading too difficult if you decide not to use armotech as your source for upgrades.

Good beginners marker
Stock Expansion Chamber
This is a good beginner marker. When i first got the marker i was impressed. It shoots alright and it gets a lot of looks when you go to a field. If you want to get into paintball it is a good entry level gun. The gun has a lot of little features that put it above all the Canadian tire hook-ups.

The marker looks cool
Stock barrel is not good
After 2 weeks of playing with the marker it leaked co2. Another week later it seriously leaked co2 and nothing could stop it. I asked around and people said that they don't sell the Pluto marker anymore because it is very unreliable and frequently buggers up. The parts used in the marker is not standard marker parts and therefore cant be replaced with reliable normal parts but only Armotech parts. It was sent away for repairs and they replaced the parts that was faulty. After 3 weeks it leaked co2 again. They gave me a refund and the only shop in town that sold the Pluto marker stopped selling it. The sad thing is that when the marker was not leaking gas it shot pretty good. If the marker was reliable and did not leak gas I would replace the stock barrel and you would have had a good, accurate marker for a cheap price.
I would not recomend the marker at all to anyone. It is unreliable and prone to bugger up and leak gas.
