This is what it has come down to for me but i can't decide which to get. If you guys could just tell me anything about the guns that would be great also I want it to be a gun that I can use for 2/3 years and yes I know spools=quieter, smoother poppets= loud but efficient. and im going to be on a tournament team if that does anything. thanks

Of the three you listed, the Alien Invasion gets my vote. the Etek is deafeningly loud, and the Drone DX has a weird PSP mode that will piss you off. Have you taken a look at the Axe? In this price range, that is definitely a gun to consider. Or maybe buying a used G6R or ego; you'd be spending a little more, but they are worth it.

I would say the drone dx. I mean the Psp thing is different but it has Psp 3 shot which is similar. The alien invasion is loud and bulky. Other than that, the axe is simpler to maintain

Of the three, Alien Invasion. If it were my money, Axe or used is the way to go.

I was making the same choice and went for the drone because of its sound signature, decent efficiency, and the fact that it will stand out at the field since it is a less popular gun.

Invasion etek is too common and drone dx is complicated. Although if I had that money I would get a carter mini comp :) (I know it is pump and doesn't relate but they are awesome)

Eteks get rather poor efficiency compared to other poppets. I dunno why. The drone doesn't get the same as say a clone, but it will probably be just as efficient as the etek. The invasion will have the best efficiency as well as the best trigger. Drone will be smoothest and most quiet, but Aliens are known for being surprisingly smooth and quiet for poppets, so they wont be too different. Personally, I'd go with an Invasion.

Drone is not complicated at all. I was actually surprised at how simple it is. Only 4 simple pieces in the drive train and one moving part. Also remember the invasion is $170 more than the drone and $100 more than the etek
