    My last was an Emek last year and that about it for a long while.

    My first was a spyder xtra in maybe 2004-5 then c98 and it goes into the used market for some time. Palmer pyre, Dukie drv and a tippmann tipx.

    This is largely the niche I fill locally. I buy older guns that have been sitting and are untested. Get them for cheap usually, can fix them up and make a little return on them. But they work and I’ll help them if it does break. Occasionally get something nice pop up to put on MCB.

    Technically, I have never bought brand new myself, as the only brand new marker I have ever had is the classic Automag my dad bought be for my 14th birthday in 1995. That's also the only marker I have ever had given to me.

    Every other marker I have bought myself, always used: Tippmann 68 Special, 2010 Proto SLG, gen 1 GoG eNMEy, DYE Rize CZR, Trilogy Comp Autococker, 2011 Proto Rail, ex-rental EMEK. The CZR actually came to me in what appeared to be like new condition, though the previous owner said it had been his daily driver for a while and had put a lot of paint through it.

    Buying used just makes so much more sense, for those of us who can do it. It takes such a huge chunk off the price and you know you aren't getting some lemon with manufacturing defects. But buying used is something of a privilege, if you think about it a certain way. Because I can fairly confidently fix markers and can afford the risk of a marker not working, I get to take advantage of the big discount of buying used. Some kid who has been saving up his lawn mowing money to buy his first marker cannot afford that risk. Whatever he buys has to work, or he doesn't play. Someone in that position needs a warranty and a retailer's return policy, in case his one shot at buying a marker goes wrong.That's why I don't always steer kids towards buying used when they show up on Reddit asking which marker to buy. Usually I do, but sometimes you just get the impression that you're talking to someone who can't afford to tie up money in a marker that doesn't work. I think buying new is actually the smart move for some people based on their circumstances.

    I suspect that there is an opportunity here to give back to the sport and community. Maybe some of us with the means and skills to buy and rehab broken markers could do so for the express purpose of making cheap but reliable used markers available to new players. And I further suspect that more than a few MCB members have been doing that for some time now.

    I won a LV 1.6 last year. I bought an Emek but before that, and I bought a brand new Punisher's PB Shocker XLS. Most of the other markers I have gotten used. I think I prefer a used one over new anyway.

    Do we count Walz's as "new"?

    And other than my SSR, the only new guns I've ever bought ...

    I can't remember the last time I've bought a new marker. Local fields didn't have much options.

    That's the T2 Trayless kit that was made and sold over at ICD-Owners forum (now gone). Really helped modernize Bushys and made them viable a bit longer as legit tourney markers.

    The last marker I purchased new was the 13th Warped Sportz Dark Angel LED made, from Rocky and Ed at Warped Sportz in Kearney Nebraska.

    I bought one of Mike's last Phantoms and it sits, factory fresh, preserved in its box. That and an ENMY are the only two guns I've ever bought new.

    I "bought" a squid m3s from a raffle a few years back. Otherwise I haven't had anything new for myself in a decade probably

    Despite having worked at a paintball store for almost a decade, I have never purchased a gun new.

    Angel A1 Fly... so whenever those were new. Bought lots of new Angels despite the complete and total failure of their service and support. I did get good at fixing them though so I guess that's something.
