as a ref i see allot of guns come through and i see them shoot,and not shoot(then i have to take a look at em!
) , but what im getting at, is that its allways the same handful of guns with the problems.the guns that i see most often going down are : IONS,mini's,ive seen a few G3s and of course i see very few spyders shoot right if at all
im not trash talkin any of those guns, accept ions and spyders, i just hate em!(had to fix tooooooo many for me to support them at ALL).
note:with gun problems of course the owner is the problem most of the time
, so its hard to set all of the other variables aside and observe the pure performance aspect of the marker.
mini--for a while invert seemd to be having factory poppet(or noid)issues.(cant remember wich) a friend of minez had problems with his out of the box befor he even touched it and thats not the first Xmas mini ive seen go down on the first day of play at my field.
on the other hand i have played
with an outstanding mini, i personally love the feel of them triggers!
as far as ive learned, yu either have a sick mini, or a problematic mini that SHOULD work great.
the g3 issues i could of sworn were due to the shooter and lack of care, other than that i dont have any knowledge about them for accept they have more happy owners than dissapointed ones(most likely kids are probably taking their new gun apart and when they put it back together, they "dont know what happened")
as far as the ion problems go.. i dont know why it happens but the problems occur with tooooo many different people for me to blame it soley on the people
i havnt seen any etek/etek2s go down, they shoot nastyy, they feel good, theyre a PE product, the etek2s just came down to a lil over 5 brand new , so yu know yu can find em cheaper elsewheres,as far as BPS you can compete against anything with it, but remember, its the shooter, not the gun.thats why i play pump mostly ahah
i just know i would take an etek2 for my a1 no complaints(my a1s sick, but ive been thinkin on switchin it upp)
+eteks can be made soooooo sick in time(if $$ an issue)(cure bolt and zick and that guns barely kickin if at alllz.then if u reallly want to, yu can get a star frame if yu want it to have that feel of the latest egos)unnessasary tho.
but if ur team member has one, i would ask him how he likes it, then i would ask to play with the gun ,see first hand what ya think
sorry for saying so much without sayin squat, aha jus callin em as i seez em
gl with yur decision
