Default New gun or ups?

ok i have a Pilot ACS that i want to upgrade but its gonna be pretty expensive to change the front block, regulator, macroline, and asa so i was wondering... should i save up and get a new gun (rs or new electra) or just upgrade it? (keep in mind that im a recreational player and im only 15 so i dont have a job lol)

Upgrades:
Front Block=$45
Regulator=$60
Macroline=$1.5
Black Macroline Fittings x 2=$10
ASA=$45

and maybe a new mask... totaling up to about $200

save up money for a PMR/ION/Electra(assuming it's worth the money), although imo if I got a new gun it probly wouldnt be a spyder (poor resale value)

Get an ION for $100, stick a Lucky 5.1 body on it for $80, sell the stock body/bolt/eyes for $60 and then you've got a $120 ION that will work better/ have better efficiency then a $250 PMR.

I'd get a new gun if you want to become more serious. If not, just get some ups.

I would look on here or PBN for a used Ion or PMR. I prefer the PMR but you may like the ion. Try and shoot both maybe even play with both before you decide on anything.
