Hey everyone,

I am trying to work my way back onto the paintball scene after not playing for a few years. I have been searching the internet for good deals on used paintball markers, and have come up with a few results. Just thought I would share my findings, and get your opinion on which gun you would consider the best bang for the buck. Thanks in advance for any advice that you give me!

Proto PM6 w/ Ultralight frame
$160


ICD Promaster w/ drop forward and on/off asa
$135

Smart Parts Epiphany w/ Freak 2-piece barrel
$175

I was currently leaning towards the PM6 over the Promaster, simply because I would have to buy a clamping feed neck for my hopper on the Promaster, which would make the guns about even in price. Thank you to anyone that is willing to steer me in the right direction!

I would go with the PM6, then epiphany, then promaster. The epiphany is just a nice looking ion, which preforms damn well for the price. But the PM6 I believe trumps both.

The PM6 and Promaster are both very hard on paint and my Promaster was always leaking for some reason. I'd suggest getting the Epiphany, that's a pretty good deal.

Is there a way to make the epiphany a BOB? I had an ion back in the day, so I know how to take it apart, but at the same time, there are so many things that can go wrong.

Gd no the pm6 stomps on any modern protos face...hard. Go with the pm6 it's the best option basically a DM. To make it soft on paint turn down the lpr and up the dwell.

BUT if you look at a certain users gear bag thread he might have a pair of pm9 eyes for sale. The pm9 is the best bet especially with the features it has

PM8 will kill a PM6 all week. That is just a DM9 in a funny looking body.
but yeah, PM6 would be my choice out of those three. It's just a better platform.
