I saw a couple of shooting videos and was amazed how quiet is was but I have not seen a lot of people talking about. Is it good overall/is it worth looking into it?

Yes definately worth looking into, and even more worth getting your hands on one, a superb marker

Unfortunately, I have not seen one where I live, it's an under-cover gun That is why I'm looking into one. Also, would it be better to buy it used or new?

I live in Canada and I can't really find any good prices...that's why I' tempted to buy used.

once you figure out the lube situation it is an amazing gun.
i started with dow 33 and was having tons of issues and finally decided to go vaseline and now the gun i own shoots better than a luxe, clone or dm.

ha but as people are saying it is hard to get your hands on one to test it out.

saturday i went to the field and everybody was trying to test it out (no one had held or seen it before)

after about 10 people trying it out i had mixed reviews.... about 50% thought it was almost too quiet and didnt like the fact it gave a very slight back recoil when they were use to a medium upwards recoil on other spools. then the other 50% were pissed they owned a geo or a luxe because this thing was quieter and smoother than what theyve shot.

to summarize, i think its the smoothest gun on the market (havent been able to compare to new clone gt) but the gun comes with a little hassle, first you have to take really good care of the insides, and second if you have a problem no one knows how to work on em. In my oppinion this is good for me because i ordered the tech kit and am gonna watch all the vids so i can know the gun inside and out without having to rely on others. but if ever a major issue i will have to send it in instead of bringing it to my local shop.

Overall i am in love, ive only had the gun for a week but ive shot it for the last 3 days straight and its out performed anything else ive ever owned or seen.

GO BUY ONE!

when i said no one knows how to work on them i didnt mean no body.

i meant your general field support isnt there for demon as much as it would be for PE or bob long.

I would buy new... Buying used, you could end up getting a marker already present with issues and people just dumped it because they didn't want to deal with them.

That being said, I loved my Demon and how it shot.

Only issues I had were some FSDO related things and some minor leaks towards the back of the grip frame which kind of bothered me because I really couldn't get it to go away for the longest time.
