could get the Dangerous Power g3. You can find some going for around $399. All you would need is the new APE board to use the PSP 3 shot, where the stock g3 board doesn't have it.

Check out Intimidators, you can get an Alias for around $200-$350. And they are solid markers, I have a few and have never been more pleased with a marker purchase.
You may want to check out trademygun.com they have some right now.trademygun.com
They also have a ton of other markers as well.
Another place to look for timmys is IOG(intimidator owners group)IOG
Bob Long Marq 6, FEP Quest, Shocktech Alias
Same toolittletoolate as on IOG.

Quick Answer:

DP F8 - Great marker for $300
DP G3 - Another great marker for near the same price
MacDev Cybord (older model) - MacDev stuff is high quality, had their private label autococker and it was top notch
DM4/5/C/6 - Awesome Marker for the price, can never go wrong with Dye
Timmys (As above poster said) - Great markers from BL
Ego5/6 - PE is also top notch, love their stuff

As you can see, there's a whole bunch you can choose from, it all depends on what you want. Do you want a spoolie (quiet, less "kick", but less gas efficient) or a poppit (louder, more "kick", gas efficiency).

Oh, and gtr, you might want to scale down the sig, it's a tad too big.

Seriously, just save your money and wait till you can afford something great, you already have a mid-level marker so keep using it. Save up another 100-200 and you could find a DM/PM/Ego 6-7 with that money, which will be a HUGE improvement over those toys.

Used AKA Viking. One of the best guns ever made. You could get a nice unmilled viking for $400 easy, then instead of buying another marker latter send to off to get milled once you get it mill it will compeat with any gun out there.

This really shouldn't be in the new section. Your best option is to buy used. That way you get a mid/high end marker without the huge price tag.

If i wer eu i would go with the Proto Rail, which is a good solid working gun now that they fixed alot of parts with it, or the F7 which also works great as well.

It's funny, i was making the exact same desicion a few weeks ago, and decided on the mini, but only because im a newer player and have smaller hands. its pretty much up to you. the fusion is probly better, but the mini is more reliable and there is less maintenence involved. hope i helped
Buy my stuff
