Well, Powerclips and wildfires are out of production, and basically, Powerclip=Magstrike and Wildfire=RF20, so I would go with a Magstrike or RF20.

Depends mainly what you want.

Magstrike- Ten Clip weapon, Two clips, about 25 pumps a clip.

RF20- Twenty Shot weapon, One turret, about 20-25 pumps.

Note: That comparison was based off the stock versions I've owned.

Get a Magstrike. It has longer range, and it uses clips.

Get a wildfire, they are a lot better then the RF20, but are harder to find. And also: in my opinion, they are easier than the magstrike to mod.

Like hell it is. Tell me a couple of modds you can do on a Magstrike and I'll double it with the RF20. I would suggest a RF20 'cause once you CPVC it you'll be getting distances of at least 50ft+. I get around 75ft if im lucky in a war. I had a magstike and its hopeless even indoor. My powerclip is ok but only indoors.

OPR valve plug, air restrictor plugged (that little hole), allow the valve to open more, clip combining, bladder area expansion, added bands, removal of pegs, brass (or PETG, CPVC) barrels.
I probably missed a few too.

I love the Magstrike. I'd prefer it over all of those any day. It's got more range that any other automatic out there. When you run out of shots in a clip, you just drop a new one in there and you're ready to go. I have 4 clips, so I really never need to reload any of them.

As far as I can tell, the Magstrike is better than the Powerclip and the RF20 is better than the Wildfire, plus they're easier to find.

Magstrike:

Pros

-Max range around 90-100 (Forsaken_Angel's mod)

-Separate clips- easier to load

Cons

-No RoF selection

-40-50 pumps for 20 darts

-No semi-auto (even with e-tape, clips slip when you're running)

RF20:

Pros

-RoF selection

-Can be used as a semi-auto

-20-25 pumps for 20 darts

Cons

-No clips (I don't remember any clipping mods)

-Max range closer to 60ft.

-Somewhat harder to find (but not much)

For maximum efficiency?


1. Pump up. Count how many pumps.

2. Keep going until you hear a loud "bang".

3. Subtract one pump from the total. Rebuild your air bladder.


There you go.

How can you measure a shot in the middle of a war? Well, anyways, I'd say get the RF20 'cause you can do what CS did to his BB (Big Bast).

I say get the RF20. It has the switch so you can lower your ROF, holds twice the ammo of the magstrike, and all this for the same amount of pumps as the magtrike, as well as roughly being the same size.

So you see a penguin walking down the street. Looks harmless right, so you keep on walking past him. You turn around to seem him walk away, only to find yourself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver.

The RF20 is a lot more manageable to carry than a Magstrike, and requires no plastic machining for 20 in a row. The Magstrike gets much higher ranges, at least in the mods I've seen.
