GoG eNMEy Design
The GoG eNMEy is very low maintenance and has incredible efficiency. It uses a mechanical spool valve to dramatically reduce the recoil of the gun. It has a single trigger frame with a 45 style design. This paintball marker doesn’t have the most crisp trigger pull but it’s very feels very satisfying when firing it.
The braided hose is made with durable stainless steel and the inline regulator allows for easy velocity adjustment. It’s easy to put in aftermarket parts because how accessible this paintball marker is. The clamping feed neck is made out of glass reinforced nylon as is the trigger frame. The body shell is removable and you can put in a different color shell. A cool feature is you can run liquid CO2 in this marker.
GoG eNMEy Performance
The GoG eNMEy just felt so natural and intuitive to use. We have tested a lot of other mechanical markers but this one felt the best. It shoots really smoothly and we really appreciate how lightweight it feels. The trigger was light and made walking very easy. There wasn’t a lot of kick and you can barely feel the recoil even during continuous shooting. Because of the low recoil, the marker stayed very steady and was very easy to aim. This is one of those few guns where you really can just use it straight out of the box without any upgrades or tweaks.
Let’s go over the technical aspects of our field test. With a standard 20 oz CO2 tank, the marker got off 1,500 rounds. These are very good numbers and for a gun at this price range, it’s incredible.
