My opinion for new in that range is a Tippmann Crossover. You get ALOT of bang for ya buck with them now at the lowered price.

I have to agree. The crossover gets more appealing by the day. I'd go used, but if you're set on buying new the Crossover might be the way to go. But, in my opinion, a used gun is by far the better option.

Used Axe would be your best bet.

If you want new then definitely crossover, since it came out with a new trigger it looks really nice for the price

Only going by actual use of owned markers in no particular order
Used axe with boss or lurker bolt
Alias - stupid insane workhorses, parts everywhere, tons of information on everything about them, borderline endless customizability
Used marq - a smidge less user friendly to adjust lpr unless its milled but insane performance. Just make sure you get a pressure tester and supercharger kit for that price.

Used axe will get you to your limit, the others are older but still better performers and you'll have money left over for paint, replacing the cp junk people put on them, cookies to celebrate your purchase etc.

Everyone i also have been considering the Planet Eclipse Etha. I can work some more for the money but how does it compare to the crossover.

The Crossover and Gog eXTCy are far better values.

Personally, I have felt/used the crossover, and I wasn't all too impressed.

Now, as for the "new" version of the Crossover that's been mentioned above, I have 0 experience with, but, with the orig. Crossover, the trigger was just too clunky and weighted.

I picked up a PM8 used, and haven't regretted it since, use it with Freak Barrel and just a 68/4500 and a Halo Too, and I absolutely adore it, probably one of the smoothest shooters out there.

So, if you're looking for a good tourney gun that isn't too cost effective, grab yourself a PM8 if you can.

There are a lot of markers you can get for under $350, new or used. Dangerous Power, Mokal, Azodin, Invert, GOG, Valken, Planet Eclipse and Tippmann all sell markers, brand new, just under that price range. I'd say find a pro shop and see what feels best in your hands. Talk to the pro shop owners and get their opinion on what comes stock and what you feel is the best marker for you. Personal favorite is the DP G5. All of the awesomeness of their other markers, none of the out of box faults. IF you buy used I would suggest buying from a site like Techpb, Pbnation, or Mcarterbrown. Better deals, generally, than ebay and you can mostly communicate with more ease on the forums.

ik its not the most sought after gun but the dangerous power g4 is a great gun its very dependable and easy to work... its not meant to have as your first gun but perfect for if you are trying to start playing in tournaments. I have the g4 and it has only two minor noticeable problems. Slight leaking in the macro line but it goes away if u jiggle it alittle and bolt stick. Getting bolt stick on the feild sucks so bad but it usually isnt a problem if you take good care of it and lube the bolt regularly.

I put rare earth magnets (neodymium) in the spring holes for my crossover and that has made a world of difference in the trigger feel. Not bouncy and not stiff. Just right.

invert mini you can pick up used on ebay for like 210$ max if youre looking correctly. theyre by far the sweetest guns ive seen in that price range. if you dont mind dangerous power g4s they sell for 150$ allll day on ebay. as long as you dont mind relubing the bolt after every case or 2 :)

I'd go with the Crossover if you want to buy new or semi used. I own one myself and for it's price it's an extremely good choice. However I would have to say go used higher end and look back a few years.
