Looking for a good gun.... Was thinking an Etek 3 or a Proto reflex rail. In the price range of 400-600$.If you have any suggestions please let me know.

Empire Axe if you plan on playing speedball. What type of play interests you, and do you have a close field near you?

But keep in mind, you have to buy a HPA tank, a good mask, and a hopper to keep up with your marker.

BTW a marker is also known as paintball gun.

Can you buy used? If you can I would look into buying a used bob long vice. If you can only buy new look into the empire axe.

Etek 3, Dye rotor , 68/4500 tank... Sound like a good set up? Just trying to get some input to make the right decision.

If you are interested in the proto reflex rail 2012 version, I would probably get it over the etek 3 mostly because I like spools. What are you looking for in a marker, efficiency or a smooth shot. Also, look into the drone dx in the $500 range.

Efficiency is important.... It'd be nice to have a smooth shot but its not that important to me... I was looking at the reflex rail and really liked it. Would it be a better pick over the etek?

Bob long vice is SUPER EFFICIENT. Its also tons smoother than an etek. Reflexes aren't that efficient and not even that smooth/quiet for a spool.

I'd take a vice in a heartbeat

But the Ego 11 is shiny. :(

Dosent the Ego 11 only come in dust colours?

The etek is going to have the better efficiency out of the two, but like I said I like spools because of the smoother shot, I am not worried about efficiency. The bob long vice would be the best bang for your buck in that price range, it can get over 2000 shots off one 68/4500 fill and it has a pretty smooth shot. I know this from experience since my main marker is a vice. Look on ebay or the BST here on techpb and I am sure you will find a good deal on a vice with some ups.

Vice / Protege with ups is a good option - very efficient, decent shot with the right barrel (felt good with Warped Sportz Lucky 15 0.689 and matching paint).

Upgrades I would get
- the carry grip / adjustable ram cap (few people get these, but this is key to adjust bolt position when using a custom one).
- Juit Bolt - contact Juit on PBNation, or hunt these down. It's a venturi bolt (which is not that important) that has a cup-face (which works much better then the pillow bolt design).

G6R - I saw one go for $550 used on MCarterbrown...!!! you might be able to get one at the upper limit of your budget. No upgrades necessary. Amazing gun.
