I have been playing with my friends on my farm for a few months now and we are all looking to get a bit more serious. I am on a budget of under $400 and want the best gun for the price. Help?

The Rail has a good reputation but I would check out an AXE in that price range at it price point I think it is the best gun on the market though that is very debatable. I personally would avoid DP their quality control and reputation is less then stellar and there are a long list of better options with your investment.

Have you seen the Planet Eclipse Etha? It is a great gun, easy maintenance, and no needed upgrades out of the box. And on top of that it fits in your budget at $400.

i started with a g4 and just last night bought an axe. The g4 was horrible out of the box but after you got it leak free (good luck honestly) it was good. However with the winter right now it just loved to break paint. I bought an axe for the efficiency and gentleness on the paint. Highly recommend you stay away from dp as a first gun but i honestly will never sell the g4 for nostalgia.

If You're Not in the Front, You're Doing it Wrong

Current Setup:
Empire Axe in Gun Metal Grey with Matching Freak Barrel Kit
Dye Rotor
Ninja 50/4500

Never tried the G5 so I can't really say... Although the Rail is definitely a great marker for $250. :tup:
