The BT Paintball Design BT-4 Banshee is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
BT-4 Combat - Looks all that differ
BT-4 Assault - Looks all that differ (though Stock easier to use)
Tippman 98 - Old faithfull, same as (shares internals, designed by same guy)
SP8 - milsim, an ion in drag, not as solid so feels like if you drop it, it might brake, but better performance (speed accuracy)
A5 Stealth - Looks differ, good that it has flatline, but just add an apex and your on par

Can't use sight rail with mask on
This is a good marker if you want the mil sim. Be wary, extremely heavy, useless sight rail and accuracy isn't the best if you have any sort of cross wind. If you just have to get an ak look-a-like go for it, otherwise get a bt-4 combat and put on an apex or flatline. Save yourself a lot of money this way and you will have a more accurate marker. Dont get me wrong, its good and looks sweet, but I am getting a new barrel and going to use a remote line to try and reduce the weight. Played today, 2 facing building which channeled air down the middle, the bt-4's with apex were shooting straight and sharp while the banshee's shots were catching every breeze and blowing off course.
I have left my initial impressions on here, but would like to add that the accuracy isn't all that bad, in fact it is good, we all play paintball after all!
Took the apex tip off and with some plumbers tape attached it to my banshee barrel. Interesting results, still decent accuracy but you can get some extra range (not as affective as on the standard apex, but hey). I know you can use 3 o-rings to attach the apex to an assault barrel, but yet to try that for the banshee.
Plumbers tape and 4 o-rings did it, fully working apex tip on the banshee
If you want looks that kill, go for this, otherwise save money by buying a bt-4 and upgrading the stock parts.

I enjoyed using this gun when I used it for the first time I found the stock awkward vs. to the assaults stock but I got used to it I could not get used to how heavy it was my friends all where afraid of me when I was playing and I could get some one form a good distance
When you get used to the gun it kicks but some things are bulky but you get passed them if you are looking for a gun and are willing to shell out the cash you should do so
