Depends on what you want. The blazer is lighter and a bit faster. The Typhoon is much heavier. Either way is not a bad choice. I have a blazer and I love it. Good luck.

The Blazer would be more familiar to you, not to mention, lighter than the Typhoon. But the Typhoon is the sexy one.

I'd start with the Blazer.

After you shoot it for a while you'll want every Palmer gun there is.

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.

A basic Blazer is a good buy. You'll be able to upgrade things later if you want.

That's a good setup.

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.

All Palmer barrels are brass.

Some have a different outside finish. Nickel, or black powdercoating. The bore of the barrel is still brass. They shoot really well. There are other barrel manufacturers that make Blazer barrels.

Site manufacturing makes the Stiffi barrel for blazers.
Lapco makes the Bigshot and Autospirit for blazers (on sale on the PPS site.)
Hammerhead has started to make barrels for them.

Any other barrel can be turned down to fit a Blazer. This means they lathe the threads off a barrel to fit the blazer. Angel barrels work the best to be turned down to fit.

You should also check out the Palmer's owners group forum for more information on all PPS markers and accesories. The people there are very helpful and knowledgeable about Palmer products.

I would go with the palmer barrel. I have an big shot and I do not like it, nor use it. I have a 12 inch dual ported pps barrel and I love it. Quiet and accurate. Go with a ported barrel.
