epiphany's are great guns, however like all smart parts markers they need upgrades to shoot amazing. If you just need a gun for messing around then get the epiphany. If you are serious about paintballin than get another gun in the price range, or buy the epiphany and slowly add all the upgrades.
If you decide to do choice number 2, save your money and buy the epiphany in my sig
Save ya mad money in the long run
