In Topic: Used $250 Marker

19 December 2014 - 05:34 PM

I prefer spool but poppet is fine as well. I'm mostly leaning towards the dms or an axe. The only thing im worried about with the dms is finding replacement parts. Will this be hard? I heard dye will stop making parts for these markers.

DMs are really easy to find parts for.


In Topic: opinion on viewloader vlocity XSV edition

They were the competition for the halo/reloader b back when they came out.  I still have two.  Should serve you well.

 

Not sure if it would be worth it in the XSV edition (or worth upgrading a $20 loader of any kind), but I picked up a couple virtue chips for dirt cheap for mine.  Increased the battery life by a good chunk, for less than the cost of a 2 pack of 9 volts.


In Topic: Need a new gun.

On the lower end of your budget, there is an evil minion (private label PM6), with CP trigger in the BSTs right now for $150 shipped.  A guy at the field I play at has had one since 06 and loves it.  If you're after semi, it should do you well.  I shoot a PM8 myself and love it, but the UL frame is very different.

 

On the higher end you can look into a Marq.  Little more kick than a spool, but the triggers are amazing.  Can be had for under $250 easy enough.


In Topic: Backup Mech gun

I am a huge fan of the enmey.  I picked it up as a loaner, or to use myself when playing with friends using rental markers.  It ended up taking over and I now use it more than any of my other markers.


In Topic: Best new gun for a newer player that wants to get serous about the sport on a budget?

What is your budget?  Do you just need the one gun, or are you after three?  Do you already have a good mask and tank?
