The Stryker Paintball STR-1 is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Everything, ball chopping, air hog cleaning problem.
i bought this gun about 4 years ago and i liked it for about the first two days of use. then the gun began to chop a ball here and there but overall it was still okey . After that it began to chop a ball every other shot. This gun has about the worst blow back in all the paintball guns i have ever tried it tends to blow the balls back up the feed neck into the hopper again which sometime results in the ball breaking in the hopper, when this happens it would cover all the other paint balls i had in paint witch caused me to waste like over a hundred balls a game. this gun is very annoying to use and tends to piss off whoever is using it. it is a very cheap gun however i would recomend that u spend your money on a better gun even if it costs a hundred dollars more.
U WILL HATE THIS GUN..... if u have enough money i strongly recomend that u spend the extra money on a tippman 98 custom or a BT of some sort this gun is really not worth the effort!!!!!
Smart Parts Vibe (old one-with eyes)
Pure Energy 20oz CO2 tank
Upgraded barrel coming soon...
Super, super cheap.
Chops a lot
Very inaccurate (because of all the chops)
I got two of the packages this marker comes with for $70...which seemed like an amazing deal at the time. Really, all I wanted was a cheap marker that I could use to see if I was really interested in paintballing. Honestly, it would have been better to spend another $100 to get something that would actually work.
-Very cheap. Marker, hopper, mask, Brass Eagle 3.5 oz. disposable CO2 tank and adapter for just $35.
-If you still enjoy paintballing after using this gun for a while, then you know that it's for you
-It chops. A lot. The first time I used this marker, it wasn't too bad (relatively). It chopped maybe 30% of the balls I fired. The second time, it worked like a charm. Didn't chop once. Every other time I've used it, it's chopped about 95% of the balls I fired. I never got anybody out after those first two days. Absolutely awful.
-Blowback design means that when you chop a ball, all of the paint gets blasted up into the hopper, ruining the rest of your paint and ensuring that it will all chop.
-Blowback cracked the lid on my hopper
-A little bit heavy
Don't buy it. Even if you're new to paintball and the prices are kind of intimidating, stretch and buy a Smart Parts (if you can find one...they went out of business in July) or a Spyder or something. It'll be the best $100 you ever spend on paintballing, because you won't have to experience this gun.
I'm only giving it a 1 because I can't give it a 0.
Ballchop, bad accuracy, pretty much any problem u could think of
OK, so i went to Canadian tire a couple years ago to buy this cheap gun so i can play with my friends on weekends. I though it looked cool and was very optimistic about the performance. To my dismay however, i was sadly disappointed. In the two years "using" this gun it has broken several times and has painstakingly had to be taken apart only to break upon another use. I cannot stress enough how awful this gun is! if ur thinking of buying the cheapest gun you can find, dont. Please spend the extra $40 dollars or so to get a quality gun like a tippman or a spyder. this gun to be frank is a piece of $#!%.
Had this gun for a year went paintballing 3 times it ran about 3000 balls through it and about 2000 broke in pretty much any where a ball can pop but the target. Every time I went paintballing i had to refill a 20 oz tank at least twice and that is just an hour each time.
I would not buy this gun unless it was the only one you could buy. Get the 98c or any other spyder it should be about the same price.
ViewLoader Triton 2, I like this gun also because I've used it and I've played someone else that has used the Triton 2 before. They are 2 great matchups because they shoot similar and I've used parts from each gun on the other so they're very compatible
STR-1 players kit, I use all stock parts except the bolt from a ViewLoader Triton 2 and I'm currently swaping their triggers
I recommend upgrading to an electric hopper or a speed feed
Durability,Toughness,and consistent with a high rate of fire.
I have had the STR-1 for nearly 2 years.It has worked great and never failed on me.I personally recommend this gun for a starter all the way up to Someone about to move to pro.It is super tough,low matinence,and consistent with a high rate of fire especially for a semi-auto marker.
If you are just starting out or have alot of experience,I recommend picking up one of these guns.It's cheap,low matinence,tough,and is super consistent with high rates of fire.The one other recommendation is pick up an electric hopper or a speed feed.
I do not recommend this paintball gun! Unless you want to go back and clean it every 2 games, this is not the gun for you. This gun is powerful, and fairly accurate but it does have many problems with the balls in it. Also, if you want a light gun, this is not it, it is a little on the heavy side, not much though, just not light either. But ,on the bright side, it is VERY easy to clean.
Do not buy this, it's just that too many balls are chopped.
5 out of 10

BETTER HOPPER! hpa/n2 air tank, a new barrel wouldn't hurt
Fast rate of fire, good fps, easy to disasemble
Chops a lot, needs lots of maintenance, poor acuracey
I could shoot it really fast but when its loaded i never shoot my fastest or it'll start chopping like crazy. you need to cleen it about every hour or the paintballs will curve in every direction. It's pretty durable if you keep good care of it. It's easy to adjust the fps.
I don't recomend it inless you have your heart set on a cheep gun.
This is my first gun so i havent got anything else yet.
Stryker Str-1 and all stock parts except for CO2 tank. (20oz)
New hopper (a viewloader vlocity would be the best choice for this marker)
New barrel (suggested 12in instead of the stock 9in)
New bolt (you can find one at viewloaderparts.com)
Easy to clean
Blowback (Balls bust in hopper becasuse of the blowback)
Smaller than other markers
To start off, this is a pretty good gun for the money. The Starter kit is ok. It comes with the marker, grav feed marker, 9oz marker, a squeege, mask, 9in barrel. That total is about 100$. The balls break in cold weather (no suprise really) in the hopper, and it chops ALOT in cold weather. bolt is plastic, so a new bolt can be purchased at viewloaderparts.com. I also would get a new hopper because grav. feeds are OK for practice, but when u in a game, it can hurt you. i have only been playing for a year and i am only a beginner and this is an OK gun for me, only with upgrades will i use it in a actual game.
Good gun. Get it if u r a beginner and u just want a gun to mess around with.
empire reloader b
soon to get cp hpa tank
empire reloader b or halob
this gun was great for about the first 200 shots. After that it broke tons off paint in the hopper because there was so much blowback. If you dont believe me take the hopper off, drop 2 balls in, and shoot and the top ball will get shot about 15 feet in the air. Also it is impossible to shoot fast because the trigger pull is about a foot long.Last, it is impossible to upgrade th asa because the holes are offset.
Do not buy this get a spyder
Get any of the vs series spyders
