NO! Neither one will match the quietness or the lack of kick.

Yeah for sure! She's using a purple painted i4 now. She got away from the whole Joy pattern thing, finally.

If she plays more I might get her one of the new 2013 i4s, she likes several of the new patterns.

Some people don't like the grips, but I don't know how people could say they feel "cheap." Most people are in this club because they like the GT though

Aaron, it's nice to know that there's a light at the end of the tunnel with the booby guns. Sounds like we could have pics pretty soon!

If you like jackhammers, yeah. You could make a few hundred selling them, pending on their condition... I wouldn't bother though

They're idiots. GT is solid, nice weight, reach, smooth!!!!

Agreed, VX grips on the GT... So much better.

The GT feels cheap to me. Between the grips, anno quality, and the milling. Has a nice shot but the quality is nothing compared to that of PE, Dye, DLX, etc. Same thing with the demon. But that's just my opinion.

The GT may have some harder edges than some other markers, but besides that their fit and finish is fantastic. Their tolerances are really good IMO. Poor anno quality? What???

Some people's are a little sharper around the trigger guard area. I don't have any issues with mine...perhaps because it's a gloss finish...not sure. Didn't have a problem with my red/gold one either but it could just be differences in how people hold it. MD has definitely heard of this though and I am willing to bet their next line of markers will have slightly more rounded off edges.

Not getting cut by it, but just rubbing their fingers and creates a raw area if you hold it different.

An how the hell is the factory ano cheap?! What a moron. Yes I'll say it. And the grips are solid, they may not be oh so super soft for your well lotions hands but they are firm and hold the grooves for a while!

And really...going to compare the demon and the Gt? People are dense.

Impossible to answer that really. If they're downgrading then maybe the VX. If they're selling because they don't like MD then probably the 2.1. Still though without having telepathy it's a tough one to answer

That's my captain and he's VERY particular about his guns. While he liked the way it shot he did not like what he called a lack of milling and the grips. You can't please everyone and you need to try a gun for yourself before you chastise it IMO.

I used to hate on the Luxe hard and then I shot one that worked properly and it changed my whole view on it. Seeing is believing, don't believe what you see on the internet. Chris knows what he's talking about but he's very particular about his guns whereas other kids are just ****ing morons that follow the latest fad or buy the latest high end to make a review vid on it to be cool.

That sums it up perfectly. I will stress the part about don't listen to what people say on the internet without trying it yourself...especially with paintball guns. The majority of people who you see commenting on things and giving their opinion on have never even tried it before...they just repeat what they heard and try to sound educated about it.

I know Chris is gonna see that post too since he occasionally searches for his own name haha

Seriously though you need to try a GT for yourself to make an accurate synopsis. I got super excited when I saw it based on previous experiences and when I got them they lived up to those expectations and then some.

Ill say I've loved mine since I got it. I thought they always felt sturdy and well built. The finish of a luxe is more rounded and soft but didn't feel right for me. The GT has always been reliable and consistent.
