So I'm constantly bringing my friends and family for rec play. Most are between 13 and 18 and everyone of them mentioned how tired they got from carrying around the autococker I give as a loaner. I need a better backup/bad weather gun anyway but am limiting it to $300. I'm not sure if I've looked into all my options, but i rather get a spool or closed bolt poppit. The biggest thing I'm concerned about is weight and reliability. I also like having a very adjustable micro switch trigger, no optical boards. Right now I'm at an Axe, G5, 2012 rexlex rail, and drone. I have felth the etha and do not like how wide and plastic it feels. I hate how the mini feels at all. Id also prefer something around an Ego11 weight. Thanks

GOG enmey or extcy? or a PMR there the lightest and then either a 48/3000 or a 45-50/4500 tank. A light loader like a ponokio or Fasta would help too.

I already have a 50/45 ninja that I can put on the setup with a Z2 so I'm not concerned about that.

I wod recommend the 2011 rail. It's a beginner gun, light, quiet, smooth, and not that bad.

I'll think about it, but 2012 Reflexes are going for that much. I don't need to buy new. And I don't like the reach trigger at all

They are? New there $450 and used there $300-$350.

PMR and the extcy are the 2 best right now.

If you wanna go used you could get a Reflex Rail but I doubt the person you lone it to will know the difference.

I just picked up an axe pro le pdd today add it was love at first trigger pull. You can a regular axe used for good prices right now. If you go with the axe you and the people you loan it to won't regret it. The only problem I forsee is you loving the axe so much that your primary gun will turn into your loaner gun. What is you primary Anyway?

What this guy said.....

Also a work-horse. The last thing you want is to have a loaner that is a POS and give it to someone that does not know what they are doing.

My Markers:

Polished Silver CCM T2, Polished Black CCM T2, Dust Black CCM T2, Black Bob Long MVP, Dust Back Sanchez Machine SM-1, Polished Silver CCI Phantom, Dust Black Empire AXE.

There are a lot of choices out there, and since it's going to be a loaner, you don't know how the person you're loaning is going to like it. Therefore, you should pick a gun that is user friendly and durable. The etha is a great choice if you haven't made up your mind yet. The board is pretty easy to use and it is very durable. The etha torture test will speak for durability. With the etha being $400, I don't know if I would get that just for letting friends to play with.

I'd get a pistol or a pump for yourself and let them borrow your marker.
