Recommend me some gear

I have a 500 budget for everything: air, marker, hopper, masks, etc. I'm don't have a problem buying used stuff off ebay. I want a marker that would be worth modifying ( I'm thinking ion) and do not want to use CO2. I played years back and was pretty good but it's been a while, markers have changed a lot.

Do you have any recommendations?

Used PMR- 150-200
New Steelie HPA tank- 40
New Empire Too loader- 70
Mask of your choice- anywhere from 40-130 depending on if you buy used/new and which one you pick. Best budget mask IMO is the Vforce Vantage which is about 40 new. Masks cheaper than this will likely give you problems with fogging and comfort.

That's about 300-400 bucks for the essentials. PMRs and guns in a similar price range can often be had in package deals as well. Check eBay or the BST and you'll find people selling their gun, carbon fiber tank, hopper and mask (often there is a pod pack and an extra lens or some upgrades in the mix too) for about that price. Fine for the woods, great for airball as well.

I would get everything new, just so you're positive everything is working to it's maximum potential:
Marker: GoG Extcy - 250$
Mask: JT proflex- 60$
Hopper: Viewloader Force - 40$
Tank: 68/4500 tank: 150$
Pod Pack: NxE Recreational Pod Pack 4+3- 20$
These things will have you set. If you throw in a bit more money get the empire halo too, or even a used rotor.

I second the used PMR path. They are going for very cheap, and i'm talking dirt cheap. I wasnt even looking for another gun but i found a 2008 PMR with a metal back cap on here a couple weeks ago for 95 shipped and PP'd so i figured why not. Great gun for the money, set it at 18bps with my rotor and it shot ropes with no chops. I took it to the field yesterday and it got more playing time than my DM10 did.

That being said, i too have a fully upped ION xe and it is a great gun for the money as well... You can find ion's on ebay with a few ups like a bolt/trigger/asa/clampfeedneck for under 130 all day.

Stock for stock though, i'd go PMR.

How does the GOG extasy compare to the PMR?

PMR>extcy, its just an all around better built gun. They both offer many of the same things from each gun, i'm just a bigger fan of Dye/proto than GoG. I've personally shot a 08 PMR and it shoots fantastic for an entry level gun. I've had the chance to hold an extcy (not shoot it) and it just didnt get me excited... not to mention i hate the look of it. With your price range you should be able to easily find a 2010 PMR, which will have the UL frame, eye pipe, on/off asa. When paired with a decent hopper the gun will shoot ropes out of the box.

Dont buy anything used off of eBay. Buy it here. Much better community and most of us take good care of our guns. PBN Feedback>eBay Feedback lol

This is a good route although you can get both a used tank and hopper for less. Most Halo Too's are going for $40-$50. Gives you more room on the gun.

Not necessary. Most of the guns and gear sold/traded here are in perfect working order. The main thing is to check feedback.

Used Dangerous Power G3(150), a Valken V-Max(new-80), now a used mask is up to you, but I just got a used Grillz for 55 and is absolutely perfect, but if not that, then V-Force Profilers (60), A used pod pack(should go for 20), and a used Carbon fiber tank (60-80) or a Steelie for 40, good luck.
