im trying to find a bit of a high end gun that has a couple of basic requirements. a gun that is about 300 or lower in price. It needs to work fine with CO2 because im not spending all my money on a nitrogen tank. If the gun would have eyes and multiple firing modes it would be sweet. I hate chopping paint. one that comes with a good stock barrel and requires a low amount of upgrades. If anybody know of a gun that would fit these requirements, i would greatly appreciate it.
thanks

ions run on Anti Siphoned Co2..thats probably the best bet for the Co2...but if u had HPA theres a whole different world of possiblilites in the price range of 300 bucks

check out my sig maybe?

There you go.. Comes with the first essential upgrades (Freak, Q-Lock, and On/off ASA with Rail), besides a QEV.. Which I would diffenately pick up along with the ION Pro.. QEV's are between 15 and 20 Dollars and make the Marker shoot loads better and it will keep grease out of your solenoid and give you better efficiency...

I would buy an HPA tank though.. ION's don't like Co2 AT ALL.. They are really cheap.. Just look around PBN.. You can get a 48/3000 aluminum tank for about 40-50 Shipped.. That ION Pro with the QEV will give you about 600 shots off that tank..

And after you put an anti-siphon kit on your co2 tank, and and the cost It will take to have an Air-smith install it.. Plus the cost of the original Co2 tank.. It will probably equal around 40 bucks..

well no offense, but if you arent going to get an HPA tank, dont bother getting a high end gun. you will have more problems running co2 with it than its worth.

:yeahthat: If you must get a gun then I would say the Ion. MAKE SURE YOU USE ANTI-SIPHONED CO2. If you don't use anti-siphoned CO2 you will freeze the internal hoses. Even if you have the right CO2 tank don't shoot fast.

I would say hold off on your purchase, or get a used Ion and a steel HPA tank. That should run you about $300

Hacker, ION's are only 190-200 Now, So he could get a Brand New ION and a Brand New PMI 48/3000 Tank off of Pbgear for 260 shipped.. A used ION and Used tank will prolly be around 200-210..

For 300$ there really isn't an option without HPA as most everyone has said, but if you want a good gun with eyes, the 06 Diablo Mongoose has eyes, a clamping feedneck and a bunch of usefull stuff, very cool gun. ~160$ There is also the gameface vexor eye, basically same gun as the mongoose, eyes, clamping feeneck etc. but looks entirely different. Then you have the leftover $$$ to save for an HPA tank and then eventually be able to get a hier end gun.

I agree, the ION. My son and I have 2 Pilot ACS that we bought last year, and we both just bought IONs. For the $199 you can't beat it. An Egg is $68 and it will keep up with the ion. Like others have said small steel HPA tanks are also fairly cheap. But what about a barrel? Mo Money, Mo Money.......... The QEV(Quick Exhaust Valve) that will make it more efficient is another $20 and you'll need it if you get a small tank. I have a 68/3000 Fiber and my son has a 72/3000 steel. Mine was $168, his was $64. With more upgrades and of course more $$ you can get the ion to Rip in the mid to high 20bps.

Q: How fast can I go?
A: How much money do you have?
