I am looking to get a new gun to upgrade from my mini and am dead set on getting another closed bolt style gun and am not sure what to get. If i didn't include something that you think should be up there let me know i want to make sure i buy the right gun for me.

The mini isn't closed bolt. :dodgy:

I say a used Droid, Marq, DM/PM or Shocker (with an eingenbolt).

It doesn't seem like he's looking for stacked-tube poppets (or any poppet-valve markers for that matter).

The Reflex really isn't a bad marker, the Axe is a better deal, but the Reflex is not a bad option.

Axe would be a better alternative to both, but out of those 2, Id say Reflex Rail, but the Drone DX comes in a close 2nd.

Wait I don't understand. How would the Axe be better than both?

Axe + Lurker bolt is smoother, quieter, and more efficient than both with a much better trigger.

Call me a skeptic, but I don't think the Axe with whatever aftermarket bolt and tuning can match the shooting of a reflex or drone. Atleast not shooting at 280+.

To OP. if you're not afraid of used gats look at PM8's or older DM's (7.8.9.10.11's) as they can me had at around the same price used as any of the markers new. And shoot alot better.

^you would be surprised, the axe is really really nice to shoot once you can get the operating pressure away from stock. It isn't high end spoolie smooth, but it comes close.

The reciprocating mass is very small and the valve acts in a way which actually neutralizes some recoil forces.
