hey guys almost positive that im gonna get a G3 for christmas (it'll be the only thing my parents have ever bought for me, dont call me spoiled) but with world cup prices seem to be dropping a lot so it leaves me with the question. should i stay with the G3 or will the etek2's price come down to the $400
price range? And does anyone know what the cheapest new gun is that has the LCD display (i think thats what its called, The screen on the 08 ego its on angels u no) like is that only a $1000 gun feature or is it in cheaper guns too. thanks guys appriciate the help


o and if the Etek2 price does not go down i'll probably stay with the G3 but im open to hearing about any other guns that you think would be good. i can go over 450ish.

thanks guys i appreciate it

etek2 will deffinatly not come down to that
g3's are down to like 300
and cheapest gun with a screen would be a jt protium at like $100
for the 450 price range, if u want new get the g3, if used isnt a problem, go with a dm6, a1, or ego6

Yes, as the guy above me stated, I would definitely consider the PMR, but that's only because I love spool valves. As for your question, I doubt the Etek will go that low. Here in canada, they have stabilized at a 600-700ish price in CAD.

ya idk, there's just something about the G3 that just has me excited but i fear that it wont be reliable compared to the new PMR. Also no one at my field has one and that kinda makes me like it too

g3 is way better than a pmr. lots of kids have pmr's at my field and a few of us have g3's and there way cheaper than a new pmr.

don't doubt the g3 dude. one of my teammates has it and it rips man. SUPER light. the on/off is amazing, the feedneck is amazing. i personally love the trigger feel minus the side to side play.

For 300$ get the g3!

Since you're on that price range, maybe take a look at the invert mini.

It's better if you can try out the marker first before you buy it, that way you can find out if you like how it feels in your hands and other personal preference when shooting.
