The Nova 700 is the world's first totally pneumatic paintball marker. Comes with the following stock features: Articulated Barrel System, Ultra Low Operating Pressure (95 PSI), Pneumatic Trigger (lightning fast), Twist Lock Barrel, External Velocity Adjuster, Bottomline Air Setup, High Pressure Separator, Low Pressure Receiver, Accumulator, Relief Valve, and Regulator.
The Airstar Nova 700 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
The Nova 700 has a pneumatic trigger, which means you can get a good ROF and it is a very light pull. It is more accurate than a stock Cocker, and it looks pretty sweet too. It is very easy to clean and maintain.
Sometimes you will get leaks all of a sudden, but that can usually be fixed by removing the sightrail before gassing it up. The company went out of business, so that can be a problem for getting parts. However, Section 8 paintball is opening up soon, and many of their parts on the new markers are compatible with the Nova line.
Out of the box, this gun kicks ass. I got a 16" brass barrel and a drop forward, and I wouldn't trade this thing for the world. You can even get an Electronic Trigger kit for it. It is fairly cheap, but you have to look around for them. It is accurate, cool looking, and has one of the lightest stock trigger pull around.
This gun is becoming a collector's item now, so I would reccommend getting one if the price is good, you'll be happy.
this gun is a very good gun very few balls break when comin out of the barrel ive had probably 10 out of 5000 balls break ive had it for about 2 yrs it works good in the cold and warm weather.. its price is pretty high but worth it i got mine for about $300 and just about everyone offers to buy it from me for that price its very accurate the balls sound awsome when u shoot and its very very quiet also its easy to clean on the field bc it has a quick attach barrel i luv this gun and it sux that airstar went out of business
the only problem ive had on this gun is when the temp is around freezing sometimes i have problems with it bt i think its just from the CO2 if i had air i think it would work with out ne problems at all
this gun is great if u can find one i would buy it its only about a 100 more than a tippman 98 and is well well worth it
tippman 98 custom with dye xcel barrel and soon response trigger
any if you can find them
very quiet. awesome accuracy.
hard to find parts
problems may occur with the nova 700 it is strongly recommended not to take this gun apart! let someone that knows what hes doing fix it. i've had problems with it taking 2 balls in at the same time so 1 would just roll out of the barrel. all air power. don't take barrel off when the co2 is running through it. i found that out the hard way, you will lose co2.
i do not recommend this gun to anyone because the company went poof #1 reason
Gun is down, need a breakdown on it to take aprt & clean it
I have a one-of a kind. a Flatline SHO Sniper-2. This gun wil outrange any gun on the market today. I also own a mirror finish Auto-Cocker. I recently purchased a very rare gun out of Hawwaii. A Aarron Carter Ranger. I had some problems with getting the velocity up. I had it broke down at a freinds house while he was taking apart his Phantom. I noticed that the internal were the same. I put his Phantom parts in my gun & bamm. No more velocity problems. I just love this gun.
I would just like to find a breakdown on this gun to clean it properly. Once I get it running, I'll let you know what could improved on it.
The good would have to be the extremme low pressure this gun operates on. I was given this Nova 700 today by a friend who inherited a field & all it's supplys. The Nova was used as a rental gun. I had seen it in action & was very impressed with it. I helped this buddy of mine out by loading up all the rental equipment, sup-air field, & going thru all the stuff to see whats in inventory. Not a bad trade off for a Nova.
I'm hoping there won't be anything bad about this gun. If anyone out there knows where I can look at a breakdown, I would appreciate it.
Seeing the Nova in action, I would have to say it lived up to it's original advertisment. It's a shame that the Nova wasn't recieved with the same excitement as other guns.
