I don't think you can find a tourney ready gun for $200 dollars.
But your best bet would be a Smart Parts Vibe for that price range. http://www.ansgear.c...l_Gun_s/834.htm
Or you could go with something like a 2k2 used timmy. http://cgi.ebay.com/...ect...:3|294:50

You gotta be careful. Don't just go in there with hopes you'll be done in a few seconds, take time, make designs, put your name in it. Whatever. It gets the job done, and you feel good after, knowing nobodycan steal your junk, because your name is engraved in your manhair.

you CAN buy a tournament ready gun for $200
its called the SLG

i wouldn't recommend buying an old timmy like that, their heavy, complicated and you can easily screw them up if you dont know what your doing

Your better off with the SLG. It doesn't need any upgrades and is tourney ready out of the box.

Go for a proto slg 09. It is a great gun. Light weight and has tourny modes. Very easy to maintain

SLG totally. I made the mistake of buying a vibe and have poured over 100$ to get it to compete well and I still haven't paid the 100$ for the virtue board. Get the SLG don't even look at the vibe or Ion
