Best gun for under $300

Ok I'm fairly new to paintballing and right now i have a spydervictor 2, it really sucks and i'm looking to upgrade but i'm pretty clueless as to what gun to get. So please post any good gun thats under $300.


Thanks

Right now for $320 you can get a brand new 04 B2K with PDS. That is an extremely good deal and if your already going to spend $300 you might as well spend the extra $20. You will need to add a bottomline setup though. pbgear

Isn't this the same marker that you were talking about being inaccurate and are considering selling to buy an Imagine? The Imagine isn't a bad marker for $108, but it doesn't hold a candle to the Ion, B2k, or BKO.

JohnRambo, are you serious? I mean your threads are still on the front page asking whether or not you should sell the Dragun.

speed ball is ok but wat i really would like to play alot is outdoor. everyone is telling me that the black dragun is horrible for outdoor because of the bad acuracy. currently i have $120 and i have a paintball party with my hockey team in the middle of april outdoor. can someone plz tell me if i should sell and/or save up for a new gun or parts that would help me outdoor. im still sorta new so plz tell me wat specific things i should try and get. thank u.
Once again, a B2k, Ion, or BKO (in that order) is better than any sear tripping Spyder Clone.

wow. just, wow. eladamri, why do all the n00bs think you suck when you clearly know so much more than them?

rambo, you need to sit down and shut up. this is the internet and "i'm older and more experienced" comments are just plain pathetic, because anyone with a finger or nose can type them out. if you really were experienced you'd be able to show it by posting something intelligent, which you failed to do. therefore, even if you are "older and more experienced," you haven't retained any useful paintball information and have lost the right to advise new players. go learn a thing or two before you start throwing out crappy advice.

First of all, you are sounding like an idiot, which if you want to do that it's your choice. Second of all you are pissing off people who are taking the time to answer questions that they have already answered about a hundred times before, knowing that you haven't done a search or read stickies, but are still willing to take their time to help you. I read everything I could when I came on here, and if I do need help with something I want to have someone left to ask, besides ungrateful jerks like you who couldn't help me with the simplest question. With the level of maturity you are showing I would be shocked if you were even into high school yet. So to sum up, knock it off and show some respect to the people helping you.

As much as I love ICD, I can't recommend a BKO. Their Spring Driven system is crude, and inefficient (as far as high end markers go). Definetely the ION.

if its for speedball, go with the BKO, if its for woodsball or messing around with friends, buy a Tippmann A-5 and a new trigger. < my advice

If you get the above guns you probably want to run compressed air and not Co2...

If you want Co2 then go with an imagine or some spyder clone. Maybe a tippman if you only play woodsball/scenario.
