With hardware it depends on the condition or rarity - but only because I have a good and old friend, who owns and runs a pro shop. So get I a very good discount on new stuff anyway. Sometimes he even lends me a new gun for a weekend or two to check it out. He says "When you hand it back, it will be fine tuned and shoot as good as possible - so I have an ideal presentation model."
In most cases my advice is to buy used when it comes to a gun or hopper. Of course you should be able to check if everything is ok with the stuff - or know at least somebody who can check it for you and who you trust.

Hoppers I usually get used because they're so overpriced now.
Tanks I will only buy used if it has a very recent hydro, otherwise I prefer new.
I will usually buy new soft goods. However, they tend to be older versions that are on sale.
Masks I will always buy new. (I don't want somebody else's sweat clinging to my face.
