Hey techpb, today i need help deciding what gun is the most consistent and reliable without breaking the bank. And yes i have a rotor and 50/45 ninja pro. Please don't mention any woodsball guns because imo there a waste of money because tourney guns preform just as well. Also i know the axe is the best but if you could put a list (1., 2.) etc and try and stay away from used guns because i know that area better than new. Thanks guys!

Automag RT ULE.
They're not the most efficient guns and don't shoot as fast as a modern electro, but I've yet to come across a gun as consistent, reliable, and overall awesome as a properly tuned Automag. You can easily find one for under $500.
I splurged a little more on mine, but I'm sure you can find one just as good in your budget.

Reliability=planet eclipse. My friend runs his etek and anytime he has a problem with it, he lubes the ONE o-ring it has, and the bolt.then it works like a charm. He goes 6 months playing with it without maintaining it. He doesn't even clean unless he gets gun hit. Thing just keeps going like a tank.
Axes work well too. They are also pretty reliable they just are a process to completely take apart if you are having problems. They are,however pretty reliable. Not to mention they shoot fantastically
The reflex and the drone are pretty much tied, they are reliable, but more particular with maintenance of the bolt. However, they won't have problems, especially if you coddle guns like I do mine.
Overall, I have to say an etek is the right choice for you

Protip. Buy a shovel. Dig and Pile REPEAT until desired effect is achieved. Builds upper body and character. Bitches love upper body and character.

Second the vote for a RT ULE Automag.

Been shooting mags since around 1999. I have NEVER had one give me an issue. Hell my current classic I bought back in 99 and it still shooting every bit as good today as the day I picked It up at the proshop and all I have done to it is clean and lube it after every day of play witch Is crazy easy and cheap (oil lube instead of grease I used hoppes 9 gun oil).

As for consistency they seem to be far better than most other guns I have shot. + or - five easy.

Etek line hands down.

People on this site will tell you it sucks but they are all on this etek hate band wagon. They've all got their axes too far up their rear to give an honest opinion of any other marker.
