well i've been looking around for an alternative to my spyder for a while and i have considered many other guns that focuses on gadget more than quality....and i am quite tierd of always being left out of games cause my damn gun wont work right even with all the money i've put on it( damn spyders) now that i've discoverd palmers guns the only choice left is typhoon or blazer??
I would get a basic blazer with nickel accents, nickel plated brass barrel, centerfeed, and bottomline. i dont know if that is beyond your price limit, though. i think that would run upwards of $600. eventually you might want a double trigger and a stabilizer.
The 2 finger 45 grip is a great frame. The trigger pull is nice. You'll have a stabe so your velocity will be consistent. The 10 inch non ported is a good barrel. You can always get another one with porting or nickel finish later on.
Remember if you are going to use Co2 to get an anti-syphon job done to your tank.
