Smile Guns between 2007-2015

So I'm getting back into paintball after to long and I see all these guns for 1200 or more and I remember when my ego 7 was that much. So i'm curious, how good are these older DM's and Egos can they still compete. Is it worth getting a older DM or Ego?

old stuff still competes it its efficiency didnt stink.

new stuff typically has better efficiency, easier maint, less maint, better ergonomics (debatable), better electronics.

They still are competitive, only downside is that parts can be hard to find. If you're going to use older markers, look into Bob Long and Dye.

Agreed with the above posters.

You can find replacement parts for all Dye Matrices.

I wouldn’t recommend an Ego because the Solenoids are no longer manufactured and there are no Reg Seats/Pistons for the really old Egos although there is someone that is testing a replacement Seat material...
Gonna scare you up and shoot ya, cause Mr. Charlie told me so.
