Hey guys,

I was looking into gettin a back uo gun but not a cheap on like a good one

i was thinking of getting a speedball gun like a Invert mini, i was thinking ion but every1 has one of those.

Going by your motto in your sig, I can assume that you want a nice, simple, easy to maintain yet shoots well gun. Ion or Promaster would be the main options, really. Try both out and see what you like best. I'm going to bet you're going to like the Promaster's design a bit more, simply because you're used to stacked tube guns, and the real difference between it and a Spyder in operation is a solenoid. Ion takes a little bit to get used to after a Spyder, but it's still easy to take care of and shoot nonetheless.

its not speedball but i got a 98 custom with a smart parts progressive i would sell and itll definetly get the job done in the woods

Proto SLG, PMR ( i personelly <3 PMRs and u can get one used for cheap with a UL since the prices went down.....though then again i am prolyl wrong), minis are nice, just kinda weird for woods games (to light for me lol, but bloody fast)

You're completely right, LostCause. :) The PMR's with UL used are about as much as a NIB PMR. $250-ish, that is.

Mini's are weird for people with big hands. I say this because my hand's longer than the damned thing. :crazy:

My price range would be around 0 - 300 or maybe a little bit more.

"Alias" was the first thing that came to mind with that price range, but knowing those guns like I do... it'd be your main in one second, if that. :D

Really, an Ion (PBN or here) or Promaster (eBay) would be perfect for you. Both are $100-150, and won't let you down so long as you do 'em right when it comes to rip downs.

you said it everybody has an ion so if you were to get an ion and have something go wrong with it or have a question you wont have problems finding answers or parts.

03-27-2008, 10:24 PM
Erm.... parts, yeah, plentiful. Answers? Not so much anymore. Because they're so cheap, a lot of brand new players are buying them as first guns without much knowledge to start with. Asking a question here would be more helpful than a fellow user and getting the typical "idunno!" Just a forewarning... ;)
