A lot of people like to play paintball. It's a fun game and it gives you a chance to be competitive with your friends while simultaneously getting some decent physical exercise. It also gives you that opportunity to exercise your mental prowess, because it's every bit as much a mental game as it is physical. The whole point is not to get shot. You're supposed to shoot your opponents and take them out one by one so that you can win the game. Some people see it as nothing more than a game and some people take this quite seriously. As a matter of fact, it isn't outside the realm of possibility to run across a few paintball guns that have sold for thousands of dollars because people are interested in having something that's made to fit their specific needs. If you're wondering about the five most expensive paintball guns ever sold, keep reading. A couple of them might surprise you, but you'll really be surprised at the item that landed in the number one spot.
5. RAP4 M249 Minimi SAW - $2,500
This is a gun that's capable of performing much like its metal counterparts, only it weighs significantly less. As a matter of fact, it's fully loaded weight comes in at just about fifteen pounds, making it a lot easier to handle than the heavier metal options. It's capable of firing 0.68 caliber paintballs in a variety of different settings, including semi-automatic, fully automatic, and burst. The short answer is that it's very hard to beat someone that has this done. If you're wondering how it actually operates, you’ll be glad to know that it runs on gas.
4. RAP4 T68 Avenger - $4,000
If you really want to eliminate your opponent, you can certainly get the job done with this one. It comes with the capacity to include magazines that have 400 shots each and it even has a special grenade feature. If aiming at your target is your problem, this is a paintball gun that can fix that as well. It has a red laser feature so that you know exactly what you're going to hit before you ever pull the trigger.
3. RAP4 T68 M240 - $4,500
Here's another one that operates on gas but there's one more thing about it that makes it unique. As far as looks and performance go, it's almost identical to the M60 machine gun that troops used during the Vietnam war. That's right, it's capable of shelling out just as much firepower as the real thing, so it would be hard for anyone to beat you in a paintball game if this is what you're carrying around. All things considered, it would have to be something that would pack a punch for over $4,000.
2. Brede M37 8mm Machine Gun - $4,999
You would think that they would just go ahead and roll the price up to a full $5,000, wouldn’t you? If you purchase this done, be ready to carry around quite a load for the day. It actually weighs so much that it also comes with a tripod to make it easier to steady when you're shooting. On average, it's about thirty pounds, which is a lot when you're trying to aim it. Nevertheless, it's become a popular option for paintball players. It can be fired automatically, which is one of the reasons that so many people choose it despite its relatively heavy weight.
1. Crystal Bling Ego 09 - $5,001
It's hard to know what to make of this one. It's a paintball gun, but it has crystals all over it. It's a whole two dollars more expensive than the one listed in the above paragraph and this has nothing to do with gun performance. You guessed it, it's all about those crystals. People, it's hard to understand why anyone would want a gun with crystals all over it in the first place. However, there is at least one person that wanted such a device because this gun was actually manufactured and sold for a little over $5,000. Some people like to put crystals on everything, but putting them on guns seems to be a new fad. Hopefully it's not one that will catch on. That being said, if this is your thing, you can probably own a paintball gun like this too.
