In a lot of instances new mid-end guns are better than previous high end guns.
For example, the Etek3 AM is arguably better than the 06 ego

newer guns tend to be smaller and lighter. older high ends will still have superior quality control and top quality parts with no cut corners. Be careful not to go too cheap with newer guns or you're sacrificing basic technology (solenoids for example) that would make an older high end the best choice.

With ul pm7's and dm6's going for under 300, pm6's under 200, ego 7's going for around 300, and a handful of other choices, I'd personally go with an older high end.
