FASLSE! The Spyder MR5 and MRX are excellent markers for $200 and under. I've run my MR5 all season and have not had a single chop with over 2 cases through it, same goes for my buddy and his MRX. The mags are not the cheapest but they are solid and with the eco valve it gets the most shots off a 13/3k versus most magfed markers I've seen numbers on.
If you're looking to get a magfed setup for $500 you have a few options on the market, tho some will get tight if you need a vest as well. The Spyder markers will give you a chance to try magfed and only spend around $300 for marker and a hand full of mags, the tacamo kits for the Tippmann 98/A5/X7 with dmags ($60 for 10 mags) will also be in your price range. Milsig has an MK3 bundle with 3 mags for just under 500 so it won't leave any room in your budget if you need a vest, you can easily find the older mk1 or mk2 markers a lot cheaper. If you're interested in pistols pretty much everything on the market, TiPX and T8.1 mainly, are well within your range. You can also look into the T9.1 (similar to the T8.1 but can be set up as a rifle or pistol) or an older T4. Obviously finding anything used will also help your budget.
