BUY USED!!!!
I just had a mini and was in the same position you are in. I didn't like the ergonomics cause the gun was too small, the trigger was hard to walk, too much kick, etc.

The guns I was looking at were the Alien Invasion(499), Macdev Drone DX(429), Bob Long Vice(~350), Etek4(499), and Axe(460), but I was open to higher end guns as well

-The Alien, Vice, and Etek4 are poppets, so its not as smooth as the DX. The Axe is an inline poppet (ergos were too close to the mini for me).
-The poppets will be more air efficient however.

I was selling my gun on this forum, looking for the above guns and someone offered me a good deal for a G6R, so I took it. If you can find a good deal on a used highend, take that before a new gun. But If you want a new gun, choose from the pros and cons of the above guns, they are your best bet in the price range.


I have one large problem with the whole "BUY EVERYTHING USED" kick that a large portion of the techpb forum seems to always be on... and thats INHERETING SOMEONE ELSES HEADACHE! Unless you get a ridiculously good deal on a G6r then why even bother? buying a Used gun has a couple smaller issues for me too...

#1) There is no more warranty once its a pre-owned, Yea the companies customer service may be great, but you'll be paying for any broken parts that aren't wear and tear

#2) Who know's whats going to happen in shipping and whether or not the seller is going to scam the hell out of you... (yea yea buying on techpb is the bestest omgz those guyz make everyting so safe.... no offense to the mods here, they really actually do a great job)

Im not saying that should stop you from buying used, or from the forums, just a couple things that should be addressed regardless. Now the cheapest G6r i've seen in recent memory was a 2011 for 550 and was all stock. Ok that said i'm not knocking the G6r at all BUT the alien is a highend gun in a mid-end body... even then it feels lighter and better ergonomically than the etek, axe, or DX (in my hands anyway). The etek and rail just don't do it for me as a consumer because while the products are good, they just seem to have a "that'll do" feel to them.

I see your point. One thing to do to is check to make sure they have tons of good feedback, and if they are in the players club most likely they are completely legit. If they are serious about selling to you, they will post a shooting video if you ask them. Its all just judgement and what you think is worth more to you-getting a highend wihout the complete assurance that it is flawless, or getting a midend that has 100% backing by the manufacturer. Honestly if you use good judgement with who you buy from, you wont go wrong. To me, the g6r is worth the extra $60.
