TIPX Pistol or Azodin KP

I have enough money to either get a azodin Kp or a TIPX pistol and I don't know which one to get because they both seem like they would be fun to play with, so please help me out on which one to get thanks.

Personally, I'd get the Azodin. I used to own a Piranha USP pistol, and it actually wasn't that much fun to play with. I do, however, love playing with my pump markers. They are larger, and thus easier to shoot accurately since it has a longer barrel and you can stabilize it with the tank on your shoulder. You could also attach a constant air tank and hopper to it. Twelve grams and ten ground tubes are a pain to deal with (not to mention twelve grams are expensive). The pump will also allow you play in pump tournaments, while the pistol will not. Lastly, playing pump will allow you to get the experience playing with limited firepower, but while using a full-size marker similar to what you'd usually play. Your stance and the way you hold the marker will be similar to playing semi, unlike if you were using a little pistol.

Just my two cents. Either way, I'm sure you'll have a blast playing with a "handicap". Have fun!

A bunch of the people I play with have cycled through pistols, and have since gotten rid of them and moved to pump. The pistols were almost never being used, but we play pump games constantly. You can use barrels, tanks, hoppers/etc from your other gun- so cost is controlled, and you will find it more fun to play. FYI- Azodin added an online store to their website, and sell refurb AKP for 140 with free shipping. If you were looking at the 180 retail elsewhere, hopefully that will save you some money. You can use the change to upgrade the feedneck or buy a barrel. I use a freak kit on my AKP, so I haven't tried one, but I hear nothing but good things about the Lurker Eigenbarrel, and you could get the refurb and an Eigenbarrel for less than 180.
