Most of the guns you listed are way out of the OP's price range.
The Eteks would be a good choice though. You can find plenty of Etek 3's on BST. Poppets IMO are easier to maintain. Less o-rings. Not everything is jammed into a single bolt assembly. Spools will give you a much smoother shot unless you are shooting an Ego 11 or G6R.
