Design & Build
The GOG eNMEy is a basic marker, which comes with the standard features of any paintball gun. It follows the usual design of a trigger chamber, pistol grip, foregrip, paintball feeder at the top and the air tank right at the bottom of the pistol grip. Its body is fully constructed with a composite polymer that is lightweight, durable and impervious to all weather conditions. It also features a 10/12 inch stock barrel with a .693 bore size and a machined aluminum receiver.
The marker is very compact and lightweight for easy handling during a lengthy battle session making it one of the best guns for speedball games. The simple exterior design also echoes the simple pneumatic system that the GOG eNMEy takes advantage of for the exceptional performance. Being a mechanical marker, this paintball gun does not utilize hammers, springs, solenoid and even batteries as is the case with electric markers.
Instead, it features the simple straightforward design that allows it to propel the ammo forward. Fewer interior parts means less movements, which improves the durability of this gun and also allows easy and stress-free maintenance. The convenient bolt-out-the-back design permits you to remove or replace the valve core from the back, without having to disassemble the whole gun. It also includes spool valve, four o-rings, relief valve and a vertical regulator.
The GOG eNMEy Paintball Marker is a remarkable marker, despite having such as a simple design. The reason it is highly recommended for beginners is its ease of use and maintenance and general dependability. It features a mechanical spool valve that does not come into contact with the ball, but instead releases consistent amount of air with the aid of the four o-rings to supercharge the ball into the barrel.
As a result, this marker produces smoother and quieter shots than other mechanical markers with the blowback design. It also utilizes the anti-chop technology, which – together with the low pressure bolt system – help reduce the amount of paintball breakages ensuring that every paintball counts. The fact that it does not include a ram/hammer reduces kickback or recoil, which increases its stability and accuracy of every shot.
GOG eNMEy Paintball Marker further supports .68 and .50 paintball calibers giving you more ammo options and even allows you to switch between the two modes tool-free, without a hassle. The GOG eNMEy Paintball Marker is also compatible with both C02 and compressed air cylinders and amazingly operates at just 160 PSI. This means that this marker utilizes less gas than the typical mechanical markers, which operate at more than 500 PSI. The advantage of the low PSI is that your tanks will last longer in the battle field and it is also economical, since you will be saving a lot on refilling costs.
The gun is also integrated with the vertical regulator that allows it to maintain a constant psi and pressure for consistent and accurate shots. In addition, it comes with a smooth trigger with a light pull that allows you to take as many shots as your finger can press to easily overwhelm your opponents. The GOG eNMEy Paintball Marker is also very light, weighing less than 2 pounds. You can therefore carry it as long as you like, without getting tired. Its compact and small structure makes it easy to run, jump, spin and participate in other battle drills with ease.
Although it is a great paintball gun, the GOG eNMEy Paintball Marker also comes with various drawbacks. The first major letdown is the fragile plastic feed neck that can easily break, if you are not careful. It comes with two screws that attach it to the hopper and lip. Applying too much pressure when tightening the screws with the Allen Keys can easily destroy feed neck.
A better alternative would be a clamping feed neck made of aluminum, as it is more durable and easier to install/uninstall. Another drawback is the barrel, which is not as efficient as most barrels in the market. Also, the ASA does not include an on/off a purge system. To remove the tank, you have to repeatedly pull the trigger to depressurize the seal between the tank and the ASA, which is tedious and increases the risk of damaging the threads.
Lastly, the low pressure operation means that the marker releases bolts with less force. While it helps reduce chopping of the balls, the low pressure can only make accurate shots within short distances. The GOG eNMEy is therefore suitable for close quarter battles only.
Customization & Recommendations
The highlight of GOG eNMEy Paintball Marker bow is that it is both customizable and upgradable. Its versatile design allows you to upgrade it with better modes and accessories. So, if you are not satisfied with the standard design of the GOG eNMEy Paintball Marker , you can easily revamp it to your taste and style. It is a budget friendly choice, which gives you financial flexibility to make any changes you desire without breaking bank.
The first upgrade that people go for is obviously the barrel, which does not do justice to this great marker. There are better barrels in the market that you can easily select from. A good choice to consider is GOG’s Freak Barrel that perfectly complements this marker. Some people also feel a trigger upgrade is necessary. The problem with this trigger system is that it features a large dead space or the area between the spring and trigger “rocket”.
Upgrading to a better trigger system eliminates this dead space, which increases the firing rate. You can also improve its performance by changing its internal springs and switching to a better clamping feed neck or an ASA with an on/off purge system. It is worth noting however that some alterations and customizations will cancel out the warranty. Make sure any alteration you make on the marker are within the boundaries set by the company, so that you do not miss out on the privileges of a lifetime warranty.
