18 November 2010 - 09:08 PMCan't beat the Invert Mini. Small, light, reliable, easy maintenance, plenty fast if you need it. Can pick them up easily for $200 in good condition used if you look a little.
G3/G4.. decent markers, but I don't trust the regs or ASAs.. I've had way too many problems with DP quality control on those parts in particular. If you pick one up used with a cp reg or something, sweet.
PM/DM/PMR.. nice markers, maintenance intensive (comparatively), can be picky in the cold.
Intimidators.. Also nice, but large and heavy for my taste (I have little bitty stick arms).
Older Cyborgs (05-07).. same as Intimidators, and sometimes hard to find parts for.
Eteks.. Solid choice here if you like stacked-tube markers. I personally shoot single-tube (even if it's a single tube poppit like the Mini) more naturally.

In theory, if an RT marker were to be set down just wrong, something could hold the trigger in the sweetspot, causing uncontrolled full-auto fire?
Silly? Perhaps. Safer? Yes.
07 November 2010 - 10:45 PMI've not owned a G4, but I have been around G3s... and I've not been impressed by their reliabilty.. the regs and ASAs tend to cause problems, and bolts like to stick or shred orings.
On the other hand, I've been nothing but impressed by the reliability of the Invert Mini. Only remove the bolt assembly for general maintenance (that's all that's necessary), and be decently careful if/when you take apart the rest, and it'll do great for you. Any problem I've ever had with the mini has been fixed by replacing the two o-rings on the bolt stem (they occasionally wear out and/or swell). Easy fix.
Mini gets my vote, hands down.

The positions are meant to be tools, not hard and fast dictates. It's a tool for you to use developing your skills. If you choose to specialize as a dagger for a period of time, you'll be working on movement, flushing snipers, and snap- shooting. If you then decide to practice hammer skills, you'll do best to work on effective suppression and communication.
Beyond that, it's also meant to be a tool for walk-on games. Rather than figuring out everybodies strengths and abilities, I can walk up to whoever is leading our team and say "I play dagger, where do you want me?". In those five seconds he knows I'll be an aggressive front runner who he should team up with a gunner to watch my back and keep heads down when I move. But I I want to take it slower next game, and lay some more paint, no reason I can't switch to playing a saber or broadsword style.
My two cents
