The Luxe 1.5 is not very different from a Luxe 1.0. I would get the G6R.

The luxe isnt an upgrade from a g6r
Its just more expensive, the only advantage the luxe has is a smoother shot
G6r is far more efficient, lighter, more reliable, has a better company with better customer service backing it, and still costs less.

comfy in the hands

cons
a lot of lube required
trigger terrible
asa

over all i personally would go for the mini
the pmr is better than the mini for manny reasons but the pm8 is 100 times better than the mini the difference between the pmr8 and the pm8 is the pm8 is a dm9 that says proto the pmr8 has different everything (asa, barrel, no ul grip, board, bolt, inline reg)

That is your choice. A luxe is a spool valve marker, so it will have smoother shot and with be quieter, yet less air efficient. The victory will be more air efficient, you have a little more kick and be louder.

You could get any nmber of old high ends. Or a used Techt'ed G3/4. A used Mini, Proto, etc. I'd ask him and see what he likes. Nice of you to buy a gun for him btw.

You could get a Marq 6 or 7 for that if you watch the BST. I actually had a Marq 7 offered to me for $250 but I ended up with a Threshold. I'd look into those. They are VERY nice looking guns and have a great rep for a reason. Also, you can't go wrong with Bob Long.

650 is way to much for the sl, more in the 450-525 range. 600 is way too much for a dm8 even with the rotor and tank. 400 is fair for a dm8, 100 for a used rotor, 30 for a used steelie

350 is not terrible for an etek3

The cocker is worth what someone will pay, i have trouble pricing cockers because they are becoming difficult to sell.

250 for the cocker isn't too bad being a gx-4
dm8 no look more like 500 with the rotor and steelie for a good deal
etek3 lt that is a little high on it not to bad though
sl74 way high on it i see sl8r and better going for that

I love DP, with the exception of the FX. The board isn't that great and there are problems with the factory detents. I'm not a fan of the Axe either but I wouldn't buy an FX.

Also I have a guitar I bought for $300 and someone wants to trade a BT Tm-15 in mint condition with halo v35 pod pack and tank line for it so that's another option
