Just wondering what you guys think is a better gun... an older model proto rail (the '07 maybe?) which you can get for like 260 dollars new on ebay, or the new proto slg ultra lite for 300 dollars.

I would go with a used Ul'd 07 rail on the nation or here. I had one and loved it and nowadays you can pick them up for dirt cheap.

And they aren't very good on air and I think they have some problems. I would get the SLG, they have a better retail price and are better on air. I don't think the plastic UL frame is a good idea but I still think it would be better then a stock PMR. However a UL'd PMR would be better then the 09 SLG.

I have to wait for my tax refund to come before I buy anything dude, but that is a good deal.

Look on PBN, you can get a used DM6 for 300-350, end the end you will be alot happier with it over the PMR or SLG.

There is nothing wrong with buying used, just buy from somebody with good feedback and know what your looking at before you buy. I have had around 90 guns, about 95% being used and only had one or two that were DOA but easily fixed.

Exactly. Even though I had a PMR and I loved it, I wish that I would have taken a little more time to look at used high ends that end up being a better deal.

I just grabbed a DP F8 Fusion for $300 NIB. I know its not one of the ones you were looking at, but ts a really nice gun.

alright... so I was looking at guns and changed my price allowance to 800, then down to 500 lol. Now I'm looking at the bob long empire intimidator and the new '09 proto rail... can I really go wrong with either gun?

In that range I'd get a 2k6 MacDev Cyborg... but that's just me.

I would say Protege, they shoot really smooth. The one thing I don't like about them is that they are kinda tall. Never used a 06 Cyborg so I don't know how they shoot compared to a Protege.

how about an 06 timmy or the 09 proto rail

A Gen4 Timmy? Well, they are notorious for their issues. I personally steer clear. The 2k9 Rail is decent, but I wouldn't own another Rail. Just not my cup o' tea, and there are much better markers for cheaper.


The 2k6 Cyborg is as smooth as they can come. ;)
