Those are all good guns. The Dm9 has an LPR while the Droid and Geo don't. This will allow you to tune it better, but can also be more of a hassel. The Geo is a good all around spool, but is louder than a Dm or droid. The Droid is older, replaced by the clone, but is still a great gun.

I would go DM9.

They aren't bad, but they have problems that were fixed by the V2.

They are two different types of guns. The Etek3 is a stacked tube poppit. The Reflex Rail is a spool valve. The Etek will be more air efficient, easier to maintain, but would have as staight as a shoot and will be louder. The Reflex will have a straighter shot, be a little smaller and quieter, but maitanence on it will have to be more frequent (mainly just changing Orings) and you won't get as good efficiency.

Try both out and see which one you like. Look for things like the ASA, trigger, feedneck, possible upgrades, etc. If you get the Etek3, it would be worth looking into the AM version over the LT.

Blitz since SP is out of business. Ions are still good guns for the price, but they have no factory support.

I would take the Ion. SP may be no more but there are thousands and thousands of parts out there. It's a simple gun to work on and very reliable. Plus, you can get an Ion for under $100 with some simple mods already done to it. Fill in the difference between the price of a used Ion vs a new Blitz with some ups and you will have a gun that shoots much better than a stock or mildly upped Blitz. And I recall hearing somewhere that Gog will now service Ions, don't know for sure though.

GOG does indeed service all Smart Parts guns. They're just SP but with a different name.

I wouldnt suggest starting with any of those. If you cant decide on that big of an investment wait a while, and when you find out what your preferences are buy something.

Ego11 and Victory Ripper = Poppit valve markers

Luxe 1.5 and NT11 = Spool valve Marker

Look up the pros and cons of each because everyone will have their own opinions about each of these and, like aaa said, this would be a big investment into a marker.

Agreed, buy an entry level gun, try other people's guns, then buy what you want and hang on to the cheap one as a back up or sell it.

I think they are about the same but.

Spyder Sonix

Pros: clamping feedneck, cheaper
Cons: Spyder threaded barrel

Azodin Kaos

Pros: autococker threaded barrel
Cons: more expensive


I'd choose the spyder

i have a v3 mini, and i want to get a gun that feels better in my hands. im looking for any gun that you can fit your thumb between the front grip and trigger guard. just suggest a few so i can have a narrower field to choose from. and, under $500.
