Arrow Looking Into Another Gun

I want another gun but havent decided yet on which.I looked into a nerve but I heard they have problems sometimes so I was a little hesitant on that.I looked into the promaster thier nice guns but I have heard SOME negative things about ICD.I dont like ions or wraths personally I think thier fugly.Looked into the shocker w/vision and it's a little out of my price range.Yes I have looked at cyborgs ansd so far nothing but posotive things about them but one thing is can you find parts/up's for them at like any major dealer ex. like actionvillage,sak,etc.So you can see my problem here.I care alot about accuracy,efficiency and speed, I like tighter ball grouping,and at least a gun that can go upto 18bps.Can someone out thier help me plz .

YES very picky.Also I have felt timmies and dont like them and thier out of my price range.I have felt protos and that kind of frame I like but they are also out of price range.I leaning more towards the nerve because I shot them and just love them but I have heard they have problems sometimes.Same thing with the promaster,I have felt them and want one but heard some bad things about ICD.Just to clear it up no used guns.One question completly off topic;Are timmies/NME's blowbacks.(some guy tried to so hard to convince me they were)

Get a Cyborg, yes they don't have many AM parts. Ask yourself this though, do they really need them?

I am still leaning towards the nerve because I have shot it and loved it but I have never even held a borg so as far as I know I could either love it or hate it.I dont know if shoud get it though because instead of a normal all american barrel(which I think rock)it has a progressive(which im not to fond of),instead of a normal clamp feedneck it has an extreame rage clamping feed neck,in the picture the LPR looks like it's out of the body,instead of a smartparts on/off it just has a normal shocktech asa,other than that the rest is normal.I dont want to buy any parts for this gun if im going to get it beside the on/off but with that said should I still go with the nerve.

Superstock maybe since it appears you like cockers. But you ruled out most of the good guns in your price range.

I already have an orracle(cocker).My price range is like 500-550 that was a huge task to get especially since it's 50/50 chance that I will get the gun

Not really because I want the nerve but it sometimes has problems or so i've heard and it has funky non-stock parts(only 4 but the rest of the gun is stock),want the promaster but I have heard negative things about ICD,and want the borg but 1.cant find good price 2.no easily accesible replacement parts.

Yeah i know the orracle is a cocker. I was just saying since you already have a cocker why not get another one w/ a e2 stock.


EDIT: I can't believe i forgot. Look in the 05 Alien Interceptor, they should be around your price rang now.

Thats what I was originally going to do you know get an E2,Nexus/Besales ram and an MQ valve and that equals 425 but my mom said why not just get a gun thats great out of the box that dosent need up's and to keep her solid on that idea the guy at the proshop said keep it stock and I'll get a better resale value since they are discontinued,and I REALLY want to make my dream gun(check sig) but my mom keep insiting just get a gun great out of the box.

Well, if your budget is 500-550, why not get a very nice high end gun that won't need any upgrades EVER, like an 05 angel speed or 04/05 cyborg. i know you said you've never held a cyborg, but after owning two, i can tell you that they rock. I owned an 05 and then an 06. Cyborgs, no matter what the year, absolutely rock. Paintballkingdom.com is the US distributor for cyborgs and cyborg parts. They have great customer service and have anything you will ever need. Another great thing is that cyborgs don't need upgrades....there are no internal upgrades even made for them, because they are not needed. The only thing you might wanna do is get a new feedneck....that's it, really. I support angels and cyborgs 100%, and in my opinion, everything else is inferior in some way. You can pick up a used 05 speed or cyborg for $500 easily on this site or, even better, pbnation.com. So, basically, why would u settle for an inferior, lower quality gun, like the nerve or promaster, when you could get one of the best guns ever made that happens to be in your budget?

3.Which is faster They're both about the same
4.Which is more efficient Not sure
5.Which is more bang for your buck Promaster IMO
6.Which is more up gradeable Probably the nerve since you can't really find a lot of ups for promaster
7.Which has easier accesible replacement parts Your local shop should have the parts or be able to order them
8.Which is more accurate Depends on paint to bore match mostly
9.Which one will withstand the test of time
or which one is more durableI'll say promaster
10.Which one is newer Promaster
If you can answer plz do.
Anyway i'd go w/ the promaster over the nerve since from what i hear the nerve is real fugly. But i would still check out the 05 interceptor.
