thanks for the replies so far! i'm anxious to hear everyone else's opinions
Given you want something new in the 300 range, Id go with a G3 or a Mini. I personally have a mini as a back up to my dm6 (id have a dm9/10 but they shoot the same as my 6, and I cant see spending 1k on a gun that shoots just like the one I have).
The Mini shoots good. You don't realy have to upgrade anything on it outside of the barrel. Uses cocker threads and is pretty reliable. It shoots a lot like a mag with less kick. TBH, I like it better than the Ego 7 and G7 fly I had as previous back ups. The Gas mileage is pretty good once it gets boke in, about 1500 of a 68/45 and about 800 off of a 45/45.
