Get a nice high end mask for now, make sure it is damn good. You're going to be wearing that all the time, so make it nice. Use HPA. Use a nice loader, not a gravity feed shake n shoot. Now for a gun, go with either the eXTCy or the Proto Rail. It doesn't really matter which one you get; just pick the one you think looks the best and feels the best, because they are equal in performance and features.
I have a question first, do you have an electronic loader, mask that doesn`t fog, and hpa bottle, battlepack? If you do a new marker would be a logical choice, but what do you want in your new marker, are you going to play speedball, rec, woodsball, what is important to you sound signature/reliability/electro modes/ergonomics.... sry if my english is bad, its my third language
yes i have all the other gear
Are you looking for new or used?
The title is a bit confusing. Only a couple places may sell an ION new (leftover stock). But its not worth it since the newer stuff by GOG has so much more included. Plus used ions are already upgraded for you. I got my upgraded ion xe for $80. Same specs as the extcy.
If your looking for new markers, in Canada the extcy or envy is your best choice. Most other speedballish markers are above your price range. I am assuming you have all the other equipment needed.
If your looking used...the options open up. I live in Canada too. Give me a shout and I may be able to hook you up with something. The BST here is not always Canada friendly. Shipping costs suck hard from the US. Even harder when your shipping out.
i will definatly get in touch but i really like the look of the ion thats why i want one
