NO. you'd have to pay me to take an etek 4. under 500, best NEW gun is the Axe, best USED gun is the g6r.

and before you ask why the etek 4 is bad, ill answer it. REALLY loud, meh efficiency, meh trigger

Eteks really aren't that loud. You want loud, stand next to my RS or Stingray. Go deaf firing those. And the Axe isn't for everyone. I can't hold onto them, the foregrip is all kinds of wrong. It is best to get a hand on a marker first. If the local field is too far away, see if there are other players nearby and if they'd let you hold theirs.

Well for the price of an Etek 4 you can buy a used Ego 11.

the axe really isn't that bad. i personally like the way it feels in my hands. Make sure to try it with a tank on it when you are holding it.

Yeah + $150-$200

No way in hell you'd fine an Ego 11 in good condition for $500.

I could have gotten one for $550 in fair condition two times. There were some going for $600 before the LV1 came out.

Never used it personally but after seeing some of the specs of the axe and some people who have used it it seems to be the best gun in that price range.

Depends on what you like.....spools, look for reflex rails, old up'd shockers. Poppits, look for an etek, ego,vice,protege,marq,axe, alien invasion, dp fx,cyborg....The spools use a lot of air and lube due to the way they function, but get a much quieter,smoother shot. The poppits tend to be more kicky, and loud but have way better efficiency. Most markers in this price range are ones that you can't really go wrong with. In the end pick which ever one feels the best for you and your uses.

The best? As in new? Because there are a monstrous plethora of used high ends that fall into that same price point.

Spools:
Drone DX
Reflex Rail

Poppets:
Alien Invasion
Empire Axe

Single Tube:
Empire Axe
Reflex Rail
Drone DX

Stacked Tube:
Alien Invasion
