What gear and guns would you purchase if you had $290 to spend? Including upgrades, barrels, etc. Thanks.

Depends on what you want to do really? Mil-sim, woods/rec ball, speedball?

I've got my Phantom and mask already so... I think I'd get an L stock, a pair of the new S.O. Stock Class Forearm Guards, A Ghost Ring, and 3 Forge Vest pieces (Molle Back, Padded Front, Light back).

I'm more into woodsball/ recball. Looks isn't as important to me as performance. I guess a better way to pose my question was if you only had a mask and tank, and you only had $290 to spend.

I'd get a PM7/PM6, a good hopper and pod pack.

What air tank do you have?

G3 and you don't need upgrades. Stock it shoots better than anything you can put on the gun. It should be pretty cheap used.

Do you need a hopper/tank/mask? If so $290 isn't going to cover it. If you only need a gun pick up a used dangerous power G3

This PPS Pug.
DO WANT!!!! I was so close to throwing in an offer to buy it...wife was almost going along with it, which scared me and put me on guard. I'd love to K frame it. But alas...i won't.

For you...if you are a tinkerer, find a used cocker...they are fun and personal. You can tweak every aspect of the marker, every part to the trigger pull. Just grand. Or an old Mag. Both can be had for under that in good working order with decent ups.
