what I would do if I was just starting out on your budget

enmey
ANS 68/4500 tank
Jt revolution hopper or kingman fasta/tippmann ssl
Jt spectra or proto axis mask
proto pod pack+pods

that will put you right under 400 and its all good quality name brand gear that has warranties/replaceable parts

I would eventually save up and buy a really good pair of pants also but they can wait

You will be able to get parts for the Extcy for quite some time. I however, hate their triggers.

The Enmey has a lifetime warranty. Even if Gog closed, which I doubt because I was told they would be coming out with new markers, they still have their Luxe division at the same location and I am sure they would fix any issues on the Enmey.

Worse comes to worse....it is a $120 to $150 marker. It would be no huge loss to you and if it was discontinued and you wanted to sell it people would still buy it off you. Look at the Ion....been gone for years and it still has a market for parts and upgrades.

Seriously the marker cost about the price of two paintball outtings. Buy it, use it, love it, or buy it use it and sell it.

Does the enmey have selective fire like auto semi auto? Also do you prefer the enemy over the exticy?

The Enemy is a mechanical marker only.The Extcy is electro.They share alot of the same internal parts
I'd recommend NOT buying from ANS,if you read thru the GoG threads here a majority of the guns bought from them are defective and they WILL NOT repair or replace them if you get a defective one
If you prefer electros I'd recommend a used Ion Xe,the Extcys predecessor.It also uses alot of the same internal parts but the trigger and gripframe can be upgraded.It also uses the earlier Ion board and solenoid that are alot tougher

Like Punisher said. My major gripe with the Extcy was the trigger. The Ion XE is able to be upgraded to a CP spring trigger.

You can easily get used markers on the B/S/T here. I have bought other equipment from ANS without issue. I wouldnt buy a marker from them. I got my Enmey from Hustle Paintball. No issues!

Why not just get the Enmey directly from GOG. That way you can ensure that you will get the V2 valve.

I've had several problems with ANS myself
EBay or here are good places to find good deals,always check people's feedback
Sometimes you can find good deals on Craigslist,usually sellers are clueless on value there.
A good deal for an Ion XE is $100-150 depending on upgrades.
I don't recommend the original Ion as much as it doesn't have the BOB(Bolt out Back) option making routine maintenance harder

I forgot about that thanks xD

Still debating on if I should get enmey or ion xe

What's the difference between the envy and the enmey?

I'd recommend the Enmey. Super reliable and very easy maintenance. Shoots great.

Unless you have an upgrade path, either of those hoppers will be way overkill for an Enmey. I play with a Viewloader Revvy or Ricochet Apache on mine, never had an issue. Apache's are hard to come by, but a Revvy can we had cheap or maybe a Ricochet AK.

If you do have an upgrade path in mind, think twice about the Rotor. They are nice, but I have yet to see a video where one did not jam. The Z2 is nice and reliable, but can be on the heavier side. If you are not a rough player and If you want a nice light hopper that has force feed options, find a Viewloader Vlocity or Vlocity Jr. Low cost, reliable, mine NEVER jam and will keep up just fine. I swear by them. They just tend to be on the brittle side if your a rough player.

Of course there are better options out there, like a spire for instance, but for the cost to performance/weight ratio, a Vlocity is a good buy.
