    i suggest going to a walkon day at a nearby site and asking a few players to hold and try their guns on the range and go from there, i suggest this as ergonomically i hated the cs1's chunky grip in favor of the previous geo lines and was really glad i tried before buying.

    I would definitely say CS1 because you are getting a high end for the same price as a new middleish range marker, however depends on the ergonomics as GRIMLOCK said, I like them but many don't!

    Cs1 all day top end marker but best to try one first to see if it's for you imo

    Don't like the CS1 at all.

    Just feels "wrong" in my hands, just too chunky.

    Went with the Dye M2, which dosn't squeak, and can't fault it at all. The only down side is the price.

    You really do need to play a game with as many guns as you can before buying.

    If your near Manc (or meet up at a field) your more than welcome to try my M2 (or LV1) for a game.

    Personally, with £700 on the hip,I'd buy a Geo 3.5 for around £400-450 or a DM14/15 (£260-350) and keep the change for game entry/paint. Both are solid markers.
