2010 pmr is great. old enogh to be cheap, new enough to still easily get parts if something goes wrong. i like the 2010 more than the 2011 proto rail since it has a better feedneck and an on/off

So is it worth saving to buy a NEW axe, but a used Etek 3 LT, Dangerous Power G4 used, Proto Matrix Rail NEW, PMR 2010 USED?

IMO, not really. I buy almost EVERYTHING used.

Just so you know, the Proto Matrix Rail cannot be purchased new. The 2010 model was the LAST model of Proto Matrix Rail. For 2011, it was replaced with the Proto Rail (no on/off, cheap feedneck) and the Proto Reflex Rail (essentially an upgraded PR). I would DEFINITELY take a used PMR over a new PR.

If interested, I have a PMR for sale in my sig.

I would highly suggest a used 2010 PMR or Axe as your best choices.

AXE by a long shot. The axe all you need to do is pick this up and the axe will be good to go. Can't beat a $28 upgrade that drastically effects how smooth your gun shoots.

I try not to let my personal bias influence my suggestion, but the axe with an up'd bolt is hard to beat at any price let alone ~$300.

A new axe is $459 on ansgear.com

Someone mentioned trademygun.com

Is that a legit website or a scam site? Something about they bought a lot of axes and have to sell them at a used price. Yes or no? Don't want to get scammed 3 times in a row.

trade my gun is as legit as they come, there's also like a 10 or 20% off coupon code.

I am the one that recommended it. I talked to the guys at their huge booth at PSP Dallas. If it's a fly-by-night operation then they're carrying a lot of baggage and putting a lot into the sport... Totally legitimate. Funny though that you'd look at ANS and think they were legit. These forums are riddled with customer service horror stories about them.

You can be legit and have horrible customer service. You also see a lot of people say they got GREAT customer service with ANS.

ANS can (to an extent) get away with having bad customer service since they're by far the largest paintball retailer in the country.

Trademygun actually been around for something like 7 or 8 years now. I remember when they started, I bought a few things from them.

I know this is not about a gun, but in speedball, when you empty a pod into your hopper (Is that correct terminology?) How do you identify whos pod is whos at the end of the game?

I personally wrap the ends of mine in leopard print duct tape.
