So I am new to paintball and I'm trying to figure out a good first gun. I am deciding between a pm7 used from craigslist with a empire b hopper and 14" CP barrel for $250. Or I can buy an etek 3 lt used which comes in the original case, box, and includes all of the original parts and barrel. It also has a Cure4 bolt and Zick2 kit installed. Now, which one is better and why? Also I am on a limited budget. Also does anyone have any other suggestions for a gun to get? Below is a picture of the pm7 the seller sent me, can you tell me if it is a real pm7 because it doesn't look like the pictures of pm7's online. Thanks!

the etek is the better marker in my opinion. i have an 07 pmr not a big fan. Buddy has an etek and I like it. If you do find a PM7 or PM8 they will be much better than both markers you have here. Check the BST

Like it has been said before, If you find a pm7/8 it will be better than both guns you are looking at, especially the pmr. PM's are rebodied DM's, and an etek is a vastly stripped down ego with the volume turned up.
There are pm7's floating around bst for less than $200

so you have about 230-250 for a gun. if buying new i would recomend the proto rail or gog extcy. used an etek 3 for 250 isnt bad. Bob long marqs pm7s and pm8s.

like other people said, that gun you showed was a pmr, not a PM7.
if you have $450 to spend on a set-up, a real PM7 is easily within that range.

PM7: $200-250
Tank: $100
Hopper: $100

So on the B/S/T forum I have found a couple of Bob Long's and every now and then a pm7. Should I consider getting a pm7 or should I just go for a Bob Long. If so, which one the vice, protege, or marq? Thanks
