Hey guys. I live in B.C and there are not to many used guns to choose from. I wont buy online, so i have to buy locally that way i can try out the gun before buying. Here are my options:

1) Geo 2 not 2.1 - 550$
2) Dye NT11 - 600$
3) Dye NT10 - 400$
4) Dm9 - 350$ - Just the gun. No case or anything else included.
5) Ego 10 - 650$

You gas up the marker, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field... It doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last nite, all that matters is your in your world next 2 hours. Live it. Love it. Paintball <3

Those are the going prices of those guns. if you pay more than those amounts, youre overpaying.

Ahh I see. Yea I'v seen some pretty damn good deals on this website. Sadly these are the only options where I can actually meet the people and try the marker.

ego


I like the ego the best. It has a nice color scheme. I never thought about owning a dye NT but they do seem nice, theres just the matter of some people saying they have problems; however they could just be people that poorly maintain their guns.

What do you guys think? The dye NT 10 is priced very well I believe.

For $500 you can get a 2011 G6R (if you look hard enough).


There is a better market for $500 used than the Ego 10.

2011 g6rs are 500 everywhere, its not even if you look hard enough....

g6r prices are going to drop again on the next cut.

if you live in BC, find someone that lives over the border. When you are buying things, just use paypal. theres protection if they send you shit that dosent work.

Find a relative or friend in the states that you can mail stuff to

finding someone in the states will allow you to have alot more options and save you alot of money which is worth the risk to pick a gun of your choosing.

Trading is a different story but when youre buying with cash, its easy.

People have sent me broken shit, but i make sure i never trade and i pay with cash and paypal has sorted it out for me everytime.


That is my recommenndation, but if you still want to persist with the few choices in front of you i would take the geo.

your choices are good besides the NTs and the ego.

The thing is that they are slightly overpriced

Paypal has a system that allows you to file disputes so that you can get your money back if you have a legitimate problem when buying something.As long as you dont gift, this will be possible. Once you learn to buy used, you will never look to new again as you can always find a better deal used. People buy guns for 3 days then sell them back out for 200 dollars under retail all the time.

If you were to get something broken in your hands, you would file a claim for either all of the money that was sent, or a partial refund. If you claim for all the money, you have to ship it back, but if you get a partial, you can keep the item.

For example, recently i bought a RL timmy with a broken solenoid, the guy was an asshole, but paypal took care of him and gave me a partial refund I ended up paying 40 dollars for a RL timmy. Got a solenoid from a tech and ended up getting a working RL timmy for less than 100 bucks :)

again, if you like the geo, just take it as its a good price, if you have other ideas in mind, id suggest you take some of my advice

PS. I havent bought a brand new gun for the last 3 years :)

Ahh I see. Well thats good that paypal covers those problems. I just don't mind over paying a little to have the peace of mind of meeting up the seller and getting a feel for the gun. Iv never held a geo or nt so not even sure if id like them. Something that would suck to find out after purchasing online. I'll take another look online. Maybe ill find something to good to pass up. What sites do you recommend to check?

I'm surprised you say the nt's are over priced. There more then double those prices new.
