$500 for a or used...

Just getting back into playing-used to shoot back in the day an Ego 05 and 06, and a PM6

I have about a $500 budget to get my marker, and dont have a problem getting used.

Everything is so different from 8 years ago (no **** right?)

Was looking at getting a new Axe or Etek 4 from the local PB Field/Pro Shop, but figured I would check on ehre.

Thanks in advance

for 500 you could pick up a dm12 or 13, ego 10 maybe 11 if you look around, a g6r, victory, ect ect....all highends that you would be better off with. I did almost the exact thing as you when i started playing again and bought a etek 3. I would pick up a used gun over new though. If i were to start over, I would have picked up a vice, tank and rotor and called it a day. (you can get all 3 for around 500 btw)

For $500, i would suggest looking for a used BL Insight.

for those 500 get an axe stock nice axe no redline board

i have an axe and a geo 3.1 that has a board and since i set it to psp10 just like my axe i havent need it

yes its nice to have one but the axe still shoots the same with or without a redline oled board

i say buy an axe i like new things but if you are fine wih used it will only save you money

used axe perfect condition you will get for like 280 leaves you good money for a nice mask like e flex my favorite mask

Don't buy new. Try and find a used geo 2.1 in that price range or like what was said earlier, look into a lightly used axe.

If you want to be really cool you can get a Karnivor in that price range.

Otherwise I would reccommend an used high end like a PE or something. I do not dislike Empire, but I gotta say there is a decent amount of people at our field who have random troubles with them. From what I have seen their quality control is not the best.
