Not new just making a return to the sport.

Hey guys out of the blue I just decided to get back into the sport. I need a cheapER hobby that I have right now. Back when I played the DM6 was the newest bad A gun around. Anyways Im glad to be back! My last gun was a DMC with an ultralite trigger frame.

will all your paying for now in a new gun is for it name and milling. when the ion came out from smarts parts a few years ago it killed the low end spyder and brought the prices down for the higher end marker as it let any new player have a good rof with a marker that was just a little more money then a spyder and could use c02 or hpa. the new markers out there your paying for the extra milling or a limited run/anno color. paint vendors have been able to make better low end paint and the paint been getting smaller as a lot of players and companies are making .679 inserts or backs for the smaller paint.

cheaper hobby? you must have been gone for a very long time, paintball is an expensive hobby. what was your old hobby, purchasing and flying planes? I play golf, and its cheaper then playing paintball, not much cheaper, but cheaper.

well you didn't ask a question, so welcome back i guess.

I'm in the same boat you are. I've had about a two year layoff from really playing and got into cars, refurbing a car (even a cheap Japanese car), gets pretty pricey. I just thumbed through the for sale section and didnt hardly recognize half of what was for sale, I don't know where to start. Seemed like my etek was more than serviceable back then, but I somehow doubt it now.

well if i were you i would look into picking up one of these said BA dm6's. back when you played last they prolly went for around 1 grand. now they can be picked up for under 300 bucks.

dm6-250
used halo or vlocity -40
used 68/45-70

you got a nice set up there that can easily compete with todays 1000+ dollar guns/setups.

with psp's setting being the most widely used at 12.5 bps, most all markers are competitive. i use a dm6 and have no problem at all... you want consistency and reliability. ego6 or dm6 or newer should not fail you. shoot 'em up, yo.
