Guys, just wondering with your experiences with markers, what are the best high to medium end markers that you have dealt with that were also super low maintanance and easy to break down and put back together?
I'm checking ebay and there are just tons of markers that used to sell for $700 plus going for $200 these days.

If we're talking mechanical semi auto get a Mag.

If we're talking electro, get an 07 PMR or an 05 Ego. Assuming you don't want another ICD product, otherwise I'd say get a Bushy. But my 05 Ego gets the most field time and my PMR runs a close second. The PMR is soooo simple to maintain, you'll just want to have plenty of orings handy, but i would say that to anyone about any modern marker.

I will throw freestyles out there as well. Especially the 07's and pro's with the pins to release the bolt.

DP guns seem to hold up, had a buddy that had one and very easy to maintain...otherwise i'd got Macdev Borg over the ego

Shameless plug, I have a very nice ULE Mag that I'm trying to sell. Very low maintenance. A couple drops of oil in the valve and thats it. Its a semiauto Mechanical gun.

The PMR has me interested!

I've been through several mags so far and love them. I might go back to them at some point if they ever get cheaper on the resale. The PMR though, I want to look into...

PMR's are very nice shooters indeed. Dad has a 07 PMR and it is awsome! And you can pick them up super cheap!

PostPosted: Thu Jun 24, 2010 3:55 pm    Post subject: Re: High End but Low Maintenance markers

PMR's are IMO the very best electro for the money on the marker and soooo underated and underapreciated. The get a bad rap because of their lack of LPR so you just have one reg to mess with, the HPR Hyper 2, wich by the way is an awesome reg...i put them on anything I need a reg for. This also adds to the markers ease of setup and maintenance....set the velocity and that's it!

major gripes about the marker for some is:
1- only one reg...big deal?
2- Plastic grip frame...but aftermarket aluminum frames are a dime a dozen cheap! and you can add the Dye UL frame that totally rips with UL board
3- not so great air efficiency....I get around 900-1100 shots on a 68/3000....some argue less, some more.
4- cheap looking plastic covered clamping neck....works great but is kinda cheap looking with the plastic and no flip lock, allen lock only
5- plastic bolt cap...works good, never had any issues with leaking but some people were put off my the plastic.
6- plastic trigger in the plastic frame....this is probably the biggest gripe...it truly is a crappy trigger, but can be dealt with until you get a new one...it's not unplayable.

This may seem like a long list but all these upgrades are DIRT CHEAP. My aluminum back cap was $9.00, eye covers $12, feedneck $15 etc....most places are closing this stuff out wich give you a prime opportunity to STEAL this stuff.

Major pluses:
1- Upgrade parts are CHEAP!...just search eye covers,feednecks, frames etc on ebay....you'll see what i mean
2- maintenance is a breeze!...unscrew the back cap lube the bolt and go!
3- Hyper 2 HPR is just about as good as anyone needs...great and easy to maintain...lube the spring pack every couple months and thats it.
4- did i mention parts are cheap?.....
5- dovetail mountin on frame....no need for an adaptor rail but has screw holes if you wish to use them
6- most comfy factory grips i have used
7- extremely light...especially if you are used to bushies
8- sweet styling...just my opinion...maybe not a valid point. Smile
9- excellent factory board with all modes a rec player could ask for, even some tournament modes. excellent adjustability aswell.
10- relatively quiet
11- accuracy is quite good aswell even with the factory barrel
12- kick is almost non-existant...if that bothers you.

ok, getting off my salesman box now...sorry for that guys. I will not sell my PMR because it is such a nice gun and worth so very little if i ever sold it. the best or worst thing(depending on how you look at it) to happen to the 07 PMR was the 10 PMR.
