PostPosted: Sun Feb 26, 2006 11:08 am    Post subject: Another Gun

Alright, so I've been having a good deal of problems with my bushy, and so I'm looking to get another gun so that I'll have a back-up/ another nice gun to play with. I've been looking at several different guns, and I've done a good deal of research about each, and so I'm looking for some help on my decision.

Okay, first let me say, please do no be biased in your selection of which gun. Select the gun that you think would work well for the price of the gun.

Alright, so I've narrowed it down to about 4 guns...

System X NME (Not sure if there's an 06, but I'm referring to the 05)

ICD Promaster

Smart Parts Nerve (please don't be biased...)

DM4

Yea, so just let me know what you guys would do. Once again, I'm not looking for the best gun, I'm looking for the best gun for the money...

Also, please don't post if you don't know what you're talking about. I'm looking for at least some details as to why you would pick which gun, or why you wouldn't... I think you get the picture.

Thanks in advance!

You should pick guns that are in the same price range. Like instead of comparing a dm4 to a promaster compare it to a freestyle.

I dont know much about nme's

Never owned a dm4 but used one many times (very nice guns)

Never owned or shot a promaster but love my b2k4

Only shot a nerve once it was ok (i did not like the owner's setup) I would not get a nerve because you never see them any more, They were the big thing coming out and now they cost less then an impluse ($475)

Count Chokula... I figured this was my best shot because the people here are so helpful. If I'd posted in PBnation I'd gotten some mod mad because I'm doing a versus thread or something *** like that. I know it's an owners group, but I got a straight answer from exposure, and that's what I'm hoping for...

By the way exposure, thanks.

the guns u are asking about are not all in the same price range.... do some more research i would say. Out of those Dm4's are nice and so are the promasters. but for that price range i would get a FSpro or FS7, also are u buying new or used?

New or used depends on the gun. I'd probably buy new promaster or nerve, but the other two would definitely be used.

I know they're in different ranges, but I've looked at them and loved them all, and I'm not sure if I should spend the extra money to get the DM4, or go low, and get the favored Promaster, or get the Nerve which price has dropped incredibly, or get the System X which I can get for a little over 400...

I've been trying to find some information on efficiency to compare to each other, but that's one thing I can't find. Sadly...

i realy dont like the NME personaly, i think it feels long and too much like a spyder. Best bet for you is to go to ur local shops and feel each one, see which you like. Just some other guns to consider, eblade cockers are super cheap for fast guns. Vikings, defiants, all decent guns

One of my friends on a local team here has an NME, and I've been meaning to go and try it out to see if I like the feel. Other than that, I don't think the pro shop has any of the guns I'm considering, so I figure it'll be pretty hard to get my hands on one of them.

well then what does ur pro shop carry?? i think more people need to support their local shops. internet is great but there not many places when u can ask simple questions and have someone show you the proper way to do things. Ur proshop has to carry some mid lvl markers... 400-500 range, are they a SP dealer, Timmy, cockers, they must have something
