Tried several Spyder, Tippmans, and some crap guns.
I'm currently running a stock Dragun basic in red, a regular hopper, and 20 oz C02.
The most important upgrades you can buy for this gun is a barrel and power hopper...
I hear that a new regulator and running nitro makes a difference
electronic trigger, vertical feed, drop forward, great shots per sec, overall good quality
barrel accuracy, velocity not as consistent as I'd like (both easily fixed)
Before this gun I actually bought a crap gun called the VL Revelation... I got it remanufactured, which definitely was a mistake. A few months later it seized.
I finally got desperate to go play pball and bought a Dragun. Got the basic model for 110 bucks and it was well worth it. Took it out the same day, and played for 5 hours. In that time, I took out a good amount of people for my skill level. Didn't have the power hopper and it still performed very well. M3 seems to be a pretty good company, so no need to worry.
Best bang for the buck, you won't be disappointed. Same as or better than much more expensive guns for half the price, you can't beat that!
I definitely reccommend this gun to just about anyone... It performs as well as if not better than all the other guns on the field. It looks sharp, and will not let you down. I've only used it for almost a week now, and I'm not disappointed. Take care of it, and it will take care of you.
