Autococker Paintball Gun
Semi or Automatic Paintball Guns
The autococker paintball gun is by far the most widely used one today.
These are paintball guns that only require cocking before the first shot and after you replace the CO2 cartridge or tank.
These are extremely efficient and come in two forms: the fully Automatic Paintball Gun and the semi-automatic.
At first glance it may be a little confusing as to the difference (as some people have never heard of guns you must cock with each shot) so an example to help relate it to another item would be comparing it to a crossbow.
Another would be a shotgun.
Both of these are slow at firing because of their mechanism.
With the autococker gun you just fire over and over without having to keep taking breaks (unless, of course, you run out of air or paintballs).
I really can't see any reason to use any weapon that is not semi or fully automatic during paintball games. I have yet to find any paintball rules that forbid them, and that includes the local and national tournaments.
There are some differences, however, with the semi and fully automatic weaponry. First of all, let's look at the semi-automatic:
And now the fully automatic:
As you can see, both of these have positives and negatives. Each one is good in some situations and bad in others. One thing is for sure though; you want an autococker paintball gun instead of a full-on manual one!
