A yellow Smart Parts Shocker Sport Turbo. Heavy....

First brand new nice gun was a phantom with all the fixen's. First electro goodness was a Threshold. Beautiful gun, but the reg didn't work. Company charged me to fix it, and I sold it right after.

I picked up a pair of Autocockers from the guys at Sgt York's and had them lighten the back block and polish the internals back in 1992. That was my upgrade from the VM-68

My first high end marker was an X-Valved Automag (Tac One), that I still have and will never get rid of. Rips faces off like a champ.

My first high-ish end was an Impulse with Vision and a pre-cricket board. It was all stock as far as I can remember with that 10 foot tall feedneck and one of the worlds largest drop forwards. I ran that thing on CO2 and it was wicked fast at the time.

hmm, how high are we talking about? Probably my sterling stp or the polished classic mag, with intelliframe I traded for it. That was back in 2005 maybe? so they both were worth a bit more then. I got a micromag, so that was a bit of a step up from the previous mag, though I wish I still had the intelliframe.

In the past year I picked up a 2k rf cocker, middle of the road, but shoots probably the best and most consistent out of all my guns. Also a 1kBlazer, just needs to be tuned for consistency.

Probably none of these were ever considered high end other than the blazer.

I'm pretty sure the highest-end thing I've ever had was an Ion...that was for about a month and a half earlier this year.

I remember after first month of playing I went to buy my first gun, was torn between Spyder SE and 98 Cocker. I decided to go with Spyder SE since I was "newer" player and it was meant for that. 1 month later I go back and buy 98 Cocker, one of best buys I have ever made. Stock Cocker with aftermarket barrel was fairly high end then. Still own it today, upgraded over the years.

heh, invert mini. also my first gun.

then I traded for my nightkast pump. Best decision I ever made. Easily afford to play 3x as much for 3x less the cost
