PostSubject: New gun advice?   Thu Feb 11, 2010 4:08 pm

Hey everyone,

I'm in the market for a different gun, but I'm not quite sure what direction to go in. I'm trying to keep it under $150. I'm looking in either the Ion/Sp1/Epiphany area, or maybe autocockers. The problem is, I'm completely clueless when it comes to cockers, and I'm equilly as clueless when it comes to electros, since the only gun I've ever owned was a Tippy 98c "pro". I've tried to do my homework by reading reviews and what people are saying on forums and stuff, but there seems to be a lot of mixed reviews, especially about the Ions and Epiphanys. And cocker forums, pfff...it all looks greek to me.

Any suggestions would be great,

Thanks,

cockers are great but but I would go with an electro just to have that fire power to be able to fall back on. As far as electro go the Ions are nice but I dont know, i'd stay away from SP. I've had an Ion and an SFT shocker and i'd say meh to both.

I'd have some experience in this price range because its the one i'm always stuck in. I recommend buying used from trusted people or locally.

Out of the electros in that price range i've had(2k2 timmy, 2k5 timmy, dmc, pm6, Ion, SFT shocker, and my rail) I've liked them all.

Its really all about what you like.

Right now i would stay away form Smart parts because of whats going on over there. you don;t want to have a gun that the board fry's then you can't get a new one because the company went under. just search mcarter brown and techob and pbnation for used guns. i loved my Proto SLG. and the resale is around 150 so you could find them any where. i know techpb has like 3 or 4 over there.

Ethan is doing very well with his trilogy. Its a simplified autococker. Alex's UL SLG has been going great with minor bolt stick once in awhile. Brandon's SLG obviously crapped out. Conner's SLG was pretty good. Yeah, avoid autocockers unless you plan on leaving all stock. Have a 98 as back up.

Yeah, I've heard good things about SLGs but that weird bolt problem is what turns me off from them.

Autocockers are great gun but you need to know how to time them, tune them, and fix them.

the nice thing about the trilly is that not only is it cheaper, but it also doesn't need timing or tuning bounce

as Devon was saying autocockers are nice unless you have no idea how time time tune and fix them they will go down when they do you need to know how too fix it or it just makes for a bad day.

My advice get a marker you like and can afford.

p.s. Get a autococker and make it a nice pump!! affraid no timing needed, hardly if ever needs to be fixed after it is set up too be a nice pump.

As far as an Ion or that family of guns go I think that you will be wasting your money. The ion takes so much $ in upgrades to make it anywhere competitive, and really, who knows where smart parts is going in the future.
