Buying a magfed marker in 2022
Paintballing is a sport that many take up to get the feel of adrenaline and combat whilst enjoying the thrill and complex nature of the game. MagFed paintball games are newer to the scene but are taking the paintballing industry by storm. The difference between magfed and other styles of paintballing is the “milsim” feel of the marker where you count your shots just like a traditional firearm. Thats what makes it Magfed.
This month, BattleGear UK are taking a look at 5 of the best magfed paintball markers currently on the market. These markers are suitable for various players and you can find them all on our online store.

Considerations for buying a magfed paintball marker
Bear in mind that not all magfed paintball markers are the same and no two will give you the same feel or shoot style. Some markers are close in resemblance to a real firearm, these tend to be heavier. Other markers are closer to a traditional marker with a paintball magazine attached – these tend to be lighter. Check whether your chosen magfed paintball marker is built to shoot automatic or semi-automatic.
