- A. Shooter
The Luxe marker has an electric firing mechanism. While standard guns use a clunky mechanical hammer to open a large gas valve, this gun's electric bolt opens a small valve to fire paintballs faster, with less recoil. When the Luxe clogs up with mud or broken paintballs, you clean it out quickly and without tools—unlike conventional guns that require you to turn off the gas, shoot several rounds to depressurize the gun, and disassemble it with Allen wrenches. Another aid in combat: DLX replaces confusing electronic beeps with spoken-word menus for switching modes or firing rates.

- B. Loader
A gun's feeder stores hundreds of paintballs and pumps them into the chamber as you fire—until they jam. The 220-shot Magna Loader uses an adjustable magnetic clutch to spin a disk that pushes balls into the chamber. Add or remove magnets to change the force and speed of loading, for, say, fragile competition-grade paintballs. To conserve batteries, the loader spins only when needed, using either a microphone to detect when the gun is firing or a radio-frequency link synced with the trigger.

Peek around a corner, and the next thing you'll see is paint splattered on your face mask. Instead, attach this dual-mirror scope to the end of your muzzle to peer over ledges or around walls. The curved mirrors' fish-eye effect lets you see more.

That is some nice technological work there. Could work for me.
Yeah, umm... can I have one of those plz! I wanna shoot my brothers! ^_^
I've been playing paintball for a while and I can't tell you how many times I've peeked around a corner only to get a maskful of paint. I think the mirror is a great idea! time to get my friends together and test out the mirror!
As a tournament paintballer, I can see the appeal of the mirrors, but I think it would take something out of the sport. I'd rather see them banned.
Seems like loads of fun if you are keen to be pummeled by paint pallets. I think I would want the fish eye as I enjoy the competition to win and further more I do note relish the idea of being splattered with paint at close range.
True but it all depends on what kind of paintball branch your in. In Speedball or airball more than likely you wont have the time to look at a little mirror. By the time you look, you'll have a stream of paint coming right at your mirror or barrel.
Now it might be a good idea for woodsball or cqc. But if you dont want to get shot with paintballs dont even play the sport. Its not like it hurts. Unless some *** Crack goes above 300 ft/s then it might break skin depending on where you get shot.
