Lightbulb Don't ever buy another New Painball gun again!

Hi!

I have been playin' this game for a long time guy!

My advice to everyone (newbee's & vets):
Don't ever pay full retail for a new paintball marker!!!

my personal spending limit on markers is $250 & with $250 you can get some damn nice used markers.

Yes they will have some years on them & some scratches!

But i have got Dye DM4' for under $150, Eclipse impulse for $200 & even a Python Impulse for $250, Dark Impulse for $150, Strange Shocker for $200, E2 Eblade w/ Nexus Parts for $200 & more.

& the biggest & best deal i have found was a 2006 EGO Nexus w/ Maniac board for $207.

MY ADVICE --- You just gotta be patient & to know how much the stuff is REALLY WORTH & NEVER BUY RETAIL!!

HAVE FUN & SEE YALL ON THE FIELD!
Al

The full manufacturers warranty and knowing 100% that a gun has never been abused and in working order is worth it.

If you plan on buying used you had better be a damn good tech because I've owned over 10 used guns that were bought under the assumption that they were "100% working" only to find out that there was a problem the owner didn't know about or couldn't have possibly missed and was lying. Either way, I inherited someone elses problem and often ended up spending above my budget just to get something that halfway functioned leaving nothing left for upgrades and modifications I had originally wanted to get.

Wow sounds like u have gotten some lemons!

I have gotten some lemons indeed as well from the years i have been buying used stuff on ebay.

i once bought a Angel A4 thinking all that was wrong was the board... boy was i wrong. THE EYES, BOARD & SOLINOUD ALL DIDN'T WORK!!

Lession learned i will never buy any project markers ever again.

The markers i buy have to be working or very near to working PERFECT.

I just bought a $1400 for $200 ... how much downside could there be??

Thanks for the advice & see ya on the field!
