    So as the title suggests I'm shopping for a new marker. I currently own an Etek 5 which is brilliant and I do love the gun. However I enjoy more woodsball / scenario type game play and well I fancy an AR. Something more gun like.

    So I have done my usual research but there are just so many options its unreal. Coming from an Etek 5 I want something that can shoot just as good. Obviously not looking to downgrade. Something that can work with a hopper as well as mag fed is ideal.

    My price range is max £450. I would love to see what you all suggest.

    Thanks

    For a more realistic gun body you are really looking at a downgrade in technology compared to 'speedball' style guns

    The Dye Dam comes in a gun style, but with electropneumatics inside

    Most gun styles are mechanicals, with a lot of their internal designs being well established and reliable

    Maybe saying not wanting to downgrade was a mistake on my part then. I will rephrase and state that I just want a decent AR. I will not be using the Etek as a comparison as they are completely different styles of gun. I have used the Dye Dam and Its just not for me, maybe it was the setup but I was actually looking at something along the lines of a Milsig M17. Just unaware whats actually good in this market.

    Thanks

    Why not get a kit for your etek and turn it into an ar style marker

    Just looked at that there. Looks sweet. To be honest at this point i have picked 4 which are all different prices ranges but it will be easier to see people opinions.

    The tippmann TMC is a very well priced marker for starting magfed but it is not currently supporting an electro upgrade
