Something different

Right now I'm rockin the axe with a z2 and 68/4500. This set up has proven to be the best I've ever owned!
But I'm looking for something different, something to go out with my buddies and mess around with, have some fun. A change.

The new DAM looks killer, but will be pricey. Pump is alright, not looking to break the bank. Stock class maybe?

Any suggestions?

Screw the new DAM, its stupid expensive and they didn't do anything that Tiberious hasn't already done. All they did was take the Angel AR:K design(high end internals with a great platform) and add a magazine feed option.

If you really want something different, fun, fairly inexpensive, BULLET PROOF, consistent, neat and all around more interesting to play with, this is my suggestion.

Try a pistol I recommend a TiPX but a T8.1 works great too!

You got the "fast electro" category covered, look into something in a different category.

Mech semi autos, mech full auto (more rare, and technically finicky, and not everyone allows them, but damn can they be a hoot), pistols, pumps, First Strike long range guns, custom bolt and lever actions. Really the possibilities are endless.

Really most of the guns I own fall into the "something different" line of thinking. Last half dozen or so acquisitions include a Tippmann Factory FA full auto mech, a Viper M1 with bright pinkish purple splash anno, Tiberius T9 for First Strikes, a Sheridan P-12 pump action (12 grams and direct feed, sort of half stock class) with a Sergison Machine K-frame (big heavy revolver style frame), and a few other oddballs.

Wow, do you really want to keep posting that? It honestly qualifies as the dumbest thing I have heard all month. By that logic, every high-end ever made is exactly the same.

You can pick up a cheap Trilly Sport and play around with it as an autococker, or buy a pump kit from ANSgear on the cheap and make yourself a pump gun. I always play pump when going out and playing recreational or with newbie friends.

Pick up a Pistol to play with. Or just buy an old mech (like a spyder classic) and then have people underestimate you before you rock their world.

It only works once. After the first time you play, you are marked and will be remembered on that field. Happens to me every time I play at a new field with my Automag Classics.

Whenever I want something different I just think about what I wanted but couldn't afford back when I started playing.

Pretty much anything that was "new and hot" in the late 90's/early 2000's should provide you with something fun that you can play with, or work on as a project.

A Cocker or Mag would do you nicely.
