Basically, you just get more features with what your buying, a $300 dollar electros give you everything you will ever need to play. $500 dollar electros give you all that plus nicer features (More comfy, efficient, lighter, hard box cases) $1000 dollar guns give you all of that, except with even more nice features (OLED boards, barrel kits, milling, more comfy, even lighter)
Obviously, most players settle for the $300 dollar guns, they don't care if the guns need a little more attention and isn't the best out there. It does everything it need to and is works wonderfully. This is what I'm opting for.
Other players like $500 dollars guns, they don't need as much attention and work better, maybe they've worked hard for it and it's something they take a lot of pride in, it works nicely, and gets the job done just like the $300 dollar gun, just with more jazz and goodies.
And the dedicated opt for the $1000 dollar guns, maybe they are pro tourney players, maybe they demand the best in the market to keep up with the competition, maybe they need a gun that will have everything they will ever need and will always work, maybe they just like the beauty and feel of a high-end marker and they can afford the money to get one, maybe they're extremely in love with paintball and they want something that shows they are immensely dedicated to the sport.
Everyone has their reasons. I don't have a reason to spend the money for a mid end or a high end gun. So I don't buy one.
My 2 cents.
