I would put in a vote for a vibe for a cheap CO2 electro.

I have a rental vibe that was rashed and poorly maintained, but it cleaned up fine. The relieving regulator works like it is supposed to. You hear it burp on occasion. It is mechanically limited as well as electronically limited to 11 bps, which is a good practical limit for continuous (speedball) play. The slow/soft bolt makes the trigger response kind of odd.

If you use them within their original design (no qev's, 11bps) they work pretty nice. I get around 500 rounds (little more) from a 9 oz. You could jack up the speed with HPA and upgrades.

That's where mine came from. They were certainly a good deal if you wanted something to work on. After shipping and parts, they were about twice the price, but still a good deal.

I had all sorts of plans for mine, but after tinkering with it for a while I could see that I wasn't going to improve on it's design or performance without making it into something completely different. Once you start pushing up the firing rate on them, you're looking at eyes and more likely HPA. It does well enough as a CF covered, efficient, CO2 marker that I just left it alone. I don't have anything else like it.
