Hokay, looking for an entry-level marker to use in and around the $300 price range to use exclusively for woodsball/outlaw. Should be noted that I'm a bit of an idiot, and hate the speedball style guns, very much prefer the "authentic milsim" look. (Honest admission, played with a guy who had a massively tricked out A5, and fell in lust, that's what started all this.) And a bit sick of using the bog standard rental 98s.

 

Anyways, thinking of used to get the most bang for the buck. I see used X7 Phenoms on ebay and craigslist going for about $325 or so, or for the same money I could get a 2011 A5 with egrip ($200) and sink the extra into some upgrades like the bolt, barrel, power tube, etc.? There's also the Tiberius Arms stuff, and the TM-7, but know next to nothing about those, and they're (seemingly) a bit out of my price range.

 

Understand that I'll also need a HPA tank, but can make do with CO2 for now and snag the tank later.

 

(Yep, I'm a noob, and can hear the eyes rolling from here!)

Dont upgrade a Tippmann.

Check out the Gog G-1. It performs better every way over these two markers.

I have a Phenom and love the thing in the woods.
