What Is the GOG eNMEy Paintball Gun?

The Gog Enmey (stylized as eNMEy) is a low to mid-priced paintball gun. It's a fully pneumatic weapon, meaning that all of the propulsion for the paintball comes from an attached air tank. The Enmey is available in a number of different colors and with different options including a complete kit that will provide everything needed to get a new paintball player up and running.

The Gog Enmey is on the lower-end of prices for paintball guns but it's a super solid choice with lots of functional features. Though we view this gun as primarily a beginner's option, it could also be a great choice as a backup, spare, or loaner for an experienced player.

Tippmann Cronus Paintball Marker Gun

Tippman's Cronus paintball gun fits a similar niche to the Gog Enmey but has a more technical look for those with a taste for military simulated gear. Similar to the Gog Enmey this gun is available in either .68 or .50 caliber and can accept both CO2 and compressed canisters. It comes shipped with a selection accessories including a 20-ounce air tank, antifog paintball mask, 200-round gravity fed loader, 6 plus 1 paintball harness, and 6 standard 140 round paintball pods.The Cronus represents an excellent value for the price and you get a lot of pieces in this kit. It would be a great choice for beginners looking to get up and running for even less than you might pay for the Gog Enmey. This gun will especially appeal to those who want the tactical appearance to picatinny rails and those who plan to add on things like lights, red dots, or lasers.While you get a lot for your money with this package, we would caution against using any of the accessories heavily. As with any paintball gear, the quality starts to fall off drastically once you start dipping into the lowest price points for complete packages.

Tippmann offers a 30-day return policy on new and unused gear and claims they will accept returns on damaged gear, but do not specify a warranty.

Dye Proto Rail MaXXed Paintball Gun

No products found.

Dye's Proto rail Maxxed gun marks a higher performance and higher cost entry on our list. This gun has a number of premium features not found on the Gog gun or the Tippmann like an ultralight on/off airport, FuseBolt technology, custom color coded O rings, Sticky Grips, and a micro-honed 14" barrel. Unlike the previous two guns in this review, the Proto Rail is battery operated. This could be a plus or a minus because it will provide more performance but all batteries eventually die.The longer barrel and battery-powered operation will give this gun significantly better range and more accuracy over guns that are only gas powered. It also has smooth, sleek lines and a higher-grade overall fit and finish. This gun was designed for experienced paintball players and will likely be a better fit for those looking to upgrade into a premium. If you're a beginner and want a great quality gun right out of the blocks, this one could certainly be worth the money.

Conclusion

Whether you're just starting out as a paintball player or you are a hard-charging veteran, you'll want to get the best possible quality for your money on gear. There are tons of package options on the market these days and many of them seem like they are great deals. The problem with many of them is that the accessories and add-ons are often junk used as window dressing. For that reason, we often recommend starting with a great quality gun and purchasing each accessory as needed until you're ready to roll.

With the Gog Enmey, you have the option of buying a high-quality paintball gun without lots of add-ons that may be of dubious quality. While the manufacturer does offer a package deal that will get you up and running, we think you're better off sticking with this gun by itself and adding on a good quality air tank and pellet feeder of your choosing.

This Gog Enmey is an excellent choice for an entry-level player because it's simple, accurate, tough, and reasonably priced. That's part of why it's a common selection as a rental unit at paintball fields. If you're ready to purchase a gun of your own but haven't quite put in the time to know which fancy features you need, then this gun is a perfect option. It's got a simple look and feel so it may not appeal to those seeking a lot of flash, but it may also outlast some competing guns that have gimmicky on-trend aesthetics.
