The Stryker is a basic gun but it performs well and is very comfortable to hold. I find it more stylish than many guns in this price range and its performance is decent. It comes in a kit with a hopper and single-use CO2 tank for around $80. Buy from Amazon »

The Trilogy is WGP's entry-level paintball gun intended to fly on the coattails of the legendary autococker line of paintball guns. While the Trilogy doesn't warrant comparison to the "true" autocockers, it does hold its own as an entry-level gun costing less than $80 or as a package with a CO2 tank, mask and hopper for around $140. As far as I know the Trilogy is no longer being produced but it is still very commonly available and WGP continues to offer support for it. Buy from Amazon »

Discontinued Guns

There are many older models that are no longer being produced that are still commonly available for less than $100. These guns, though, are typically harder to find and therefore are not listed.

Used Guns

Many high-quality used guns are also available for less than $100. If you look hard, you can often find a great deal.
