Tippmann .50 Caliber Marker

Paintball Marker Differences

At Paintball USA, we offer two kinds of paintballs and markers.  The standard .68 caliber Tippmann Model 98 gun is what most teens and adults use. It is a semi-automatic paintball marker that shoots a .68 caliber paintball, the size of a marble.

Always check out our homepage for specials and activities

The .68 caliber marker has been in existence for many years. The .50 caliber paintball soft F-50 semi-automatic Tippmann marker was produced in the last 7-10 years.

The .50 caliber gun shoots small .50 caliber paintballs that are half the size of a .68 caliber paintball. This is a perfect gun for children and beginner players. The .50 caliber marker is lighter weight than the .68 caliber and the paintball is propelled out of the barrel with less force.

See our photo gallery for pictures of the .50 and .68 caliber markers and paintballs.

Both markers are sturdy and used as rentals at paintball parks.  A tank filled with compressed air is attached to the back of each marker which provides a pressurized force to propel the paintball at its target.

See our rental packages on our website pricing page and our suggested age group for the applicable marker to use. If a child is under the age of ten years old, the .50 caliber gun is more appropriate for their usage.
