What's your actual budget?

Also, to save money, I suggest looking at the marker sub forum in the marketplace. You can find used guns that are broken in for cheap! Also, TradeMyGun has some good prices on a lot of guns, so check them out!

Beware of all deals you make, make sure you feel comfortable with the deal before executing it.

Check out the B/S/T Forum here on PbNation. You can find like new guns for really cheap prices! Also, what is your budget? Do you also need an electronic hopper, mask, tank, podbelt, etc, and if you already have that stuff, what are they?

I got a Geo 2 from TradeMyGun for $600!

Only 7,000 on the shot counter, so its fairly new!

Also, do you need any equipment?

Here are some options, but again, do your research, see what you might like:
G6R
Ego 11 (not as likely to find a $600 ego 11, but I've seen it happen)
Ego 07, 08, 09, or 10
Geo 2.1 (not likely, but still possible to find one)
Geo 2
Geo+
Axe
Clone Vx
Drone Dx
Any old Timmy
Any old PMR

Axe > Etek4 > Etha in that order

Axe best shooter but the PE guns are built to last.

I have shot all 3.

Axe shoots really nice.
Etek4 shoots more like an older Ego.
Etha I am not a fan of the shot.

Both PE guns though are built really solid.

I just bought a pair, definately go with the 3x. The 2x is cut kind of small. I'm a 44" waist and I couldn't get the snaps to stay shut when bending or squatting, but the 3x fir perfectly. I got the Empire 2012 Contact TW Paintball Pants.
