Default What other guns are worth the money?

Been looking at alot of guns to upgrade from my 2005 xtra. One of the ones i am really liking is the smart parts ion series what is everyones feeling on this gun anyone shot it? Looking for something slightly smaller than my extra, shoots 10 times quieter, and slight more accurate. ( keep in mind my xtra is severely modded )

oh geez, you will find a couple people on here who love them and mostly you find a lot of people who hate them. To make them nice you may need to put a lot of money into it but if you do some good searching and sell replaced parts it wont cost as much. I'd avoid smart parts because they have gone out of business. I'm not sure how much you want to spend on a new gun, but it's hard finding something in the $200 range, it seems like if you dont want a spyder or something similar you're going to have to spend $300, unless you buy used, then you have a lot more options

I hadnt heard that SP closed whats the deal with that? Is there anything that competes with the ions that kingman or someone else makes affordable and quiet? ( have only owned 1 tippman 98 and 2 2005 spyder xtras )

Look for a used Dye DM6, you can grab one for around 225 pretty easy or if your looking for something cheaper go with the PM6. Either way its a huge step up from the ion. Shoots about the same as a DM10.

The DM6 is pretty legit. Also used Timmys are very nice, smooth and cheap. I've only had one DM and the UL frame was extremely comfy but I love Timmys. Try shoot a few guns and see what you think. 05 Egos aren't bad guns either.

So Smart parts is officially closed? Ill check into the DM 6 Dye seemed to be expensive but 225 isnt bad. Im looking to stay under 300 get a whisper quit gun with barrel kit, upgraded eyes, board possibly, and a good electronic durable trigger im hard on my guns.

a DM will be a huge step up from a spyder even without all of the upgrades

So long as you learn from the Sticky's on PBN and know how to properly clean the DM6, it will be all those things for you.... stock.

I talked to a guy at the local shop yesterday he had a dye pm6 and said there was really no difference between the dm6, that he liked the pm better he also had a pm 7 what are the differences? and is 250 a good price on a pm 6 used?
he also had a few ions there at 150 with virture boards and one with a freak barrel kit for 180? any thoughts

DM6 is nicer than the pm6. the DM has the UltraLite frame and is smaller, the PM has plastic of rubber eye cover. that's not a bad deal on ions, especially for being at a shop, but theyre still ions
