something used around $350

I'm looking for a used electro, somewhere around $350 to become my main marker. I've always shot poppets, (etek) but I like the idea of something new. I have been considering a newer etek or a dm. Anyone have some suggestions for something in that range. Please don't suggest the axe, I have shot one and kind of hated the way it felt. Thanks in advance!

lol, I was about to suggest a axe, until I read a little more. I would save up a little more and get a geo 2.1. But If you need a gun asap, I would say get a DM9. They require a lot of maintenance, but if you take good care of it, and have it tuned well... Shoots amazing.

Used Drone DX wouldn't be a bad buy around the $300 mark.

I'd suggest a droid or drone (if you could stretch your budget another $50 ypou could probably get a vx'd clone).

Maybe find a Vic V1 in good condition. Then later on add the Vis or Vcom updated engine to it and you are set for LONG time

If you want to try a Dm, go with a DM9.

Ego 7, 8 or 9 or a Macdev Droid...those are my personal recommendations. Egos are solid, but if you want a wicked smooth shot, go with a Droid...they're amazing!

v1 vic, g6r (2k11) used ego or geo, super nice shocker with eigenbolt, vice, marq 6,7, rapper, closer, there are a lot to pick from in that price range and lower. the vic and the g6r may be a little higher but some can be found for that range. i almost forgot to mention macdev markers but they have been mentioned before.

It'll be smoother and quieter, but less efficient, probably heavier and more finicky (not to say it's horrible).

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I ended up buying an etek 4 for a really really good price. I'm kinda liking the lower amount of competition on facebook b/s/t. I do plan on buying a Droid in the future though. After doing some research on them I kinda fell in love.
