neither....get a Wrath. Dragun is dead and so support and parts will be hard to come by.

Imho, the t1 is good. If you get an upgraded one, it should relatively trouble free (if someone worked all the bugs out).

The only trouble I had with mine was the stupid t-board and solenoid...

Guys, dont get me wrong, I loved every Dragun I ever owned. I owned a TES, T1, Drallion, Black Dragun, and both types of Dragunflies (mech and electro) for a short time. They were great guns, however I cannot recommend them to someone who is starting out since Dragun is not around anymore. Now I know there are plenty of people in here that can help them, but can you honestly recommend one to someone who is not at least a little familiar with the problems Dragun had in quality control? The reason I recommended a Wrath was because it too was designed by Spurlock who designed the Dragun line.

Well, you cant get either one of them new anymore, since dragun went the way of the do-do bird. But you can find them on ebay, in here, and in the BuySellTrade forums here and on pbreview.com
I'd say that it depends. If you dont know much about cockers, and arent willing to learn anything about them, I would say that a Drallion isnt for you. Since they are bit more complicated than a TES, or the t-1. Not that it's hard to learn about them, but it jsut takes some time.
Also, if you dont have hpa, and cant afford it, I'd definitely go with the TES.
If you do have/can get hpa, then I'd recommend a The One (t-1). Same body styling as the TES, but it's an EP blowforward, so it doesnt have any of the recocking issues that you would have to deal with, on a blowback like the TES.
The TES is a very simple, VERY FUN marker. Its the fastest gun that I own. I love the hell out of it. ESPECIALLY when you own some guy with a dm or pm out on the field, and he comes back to ya and asks "what kinda timmy is that?" and then soils himself when you tell him its a blowback!

Hope that helps with your decision

whoa whoa whoa I thought like that too once, big mistake man. I owned 2 cockers and a spyder before I got my dragun TES - biggest mistake of my paintball career. The thing leaked like a siv, broke when I tried to fix it and Dragun wouldnt fix it because, quote, "We cant tell EXACTLY what's wrong with it under this type of warranty". They wanted more money a week after I got the gun.

Whoa, whoa, whoa! No one cares!


1. The Dragun is a Tinkers marker
2. No Dragun is unfixable, they'res just users that don't know how
3. Being the owner of just about all styles of markers, my Dragun is still in my top three

I personally took care of all my Draguns and NEVER had a problem that I did not inflict on it by tinkering

If you do get a Dragun the T1 is much better then the TES. I loved mine until it got stolen but if you own a Dragun your going to become a master mechanic to keep it running. They have some weird threading that needs to be updated from the HPR so they have to replaced it if you want a different drop forward. I have heard the REX RX is the same as the T1 and you can still get parts for it. They are on Ebay for $159. I now have an A5 and it is a tank. I never have to work on it. I also have an ICD FS7 and work on it all the time. In my opinion the T1 was a better gun then anything ICD has put out.

These two are right, although I WOULD NOT get the wrath, I had one and was not overwhelmingly impressed with anything about this marker. If you are new to the sport or to marker teching in general this marker is not for you. Do to the death of the company and therefor the company you are on your own when it comes to getting the marker fixed. If however you like to tinker with markers you get then go for the Drallion man, they are very nice markers.
