Review: My Ego came from Action Village on a Friday, so I set it up and took it to the field the next day.

Setup:

The Gun comes in the box with the 06 Marker, a 14" barrel (.691), a barrel sock, manual, and parts kit. Note: the gun does not come with the 3/8 inch allen wrench needed to remove the rammer cap, so make sure you have one. When I got the gun, I removed it from the box and lubed the bolt and the o-rings of the rammer. To remove the bolt, you simply pull up on the pin and slide the bolt out. You can even do this while the gun is pressurized, making cleaning a snap at the field. I then removed the rammer cap and lubed the three o-rings on the rammer (the part below the bolt). This was done in approx. three minutes. The gun already had a battery installed and started right up.

Play:

The gun is great on the field. The adjustability of the trigger allows for very high ROF on semi 1 (I average on the Average ROF display from 14-16 on my strong hand and 12-14 on my weak). The accuracy was also very good for a stock barrel, but that is also dependant on the bore sizes of the pant, so if you are planing on playing in tournaments, I recommend geting a nice barrel kit like the Sly or Stiffi (the Ego takes cocker threaded barrels, BTW.) The balance of the gun makes it easy for a front player to run and gun, making run throughs a lot more effective. The LCD and board also are very user friendly, the LCD being easy to read and the board making every setting on the gun easy to switch to the way you like it.

Strengths:

Speed: 30+ BPS on Semi 1. The fast recharge rate makes it easy to achieve high ROF on semi with no problems.
UI: The user interface is excellent. The same great software found in the E-Blade 2 for Cockers.
Trigger: Four-point adjustable trigger with adjustable spring tension and magnetic tension makes it perfect for even the most picky of players.
Light Weight: Very light and balanced, making it easy to bring up off the break to start firing as quickly as possible.
Accuracy: Ball on ball (with approx. .689 field paint from my field) even with the stock barrel.
Low Maintanance: It takes about five minutes to clean and lube the bolt and rammer and clean the eyes and the detents. Enough said.
Conclusion: In my opinion, the Ego6 is the best gun on the market. At $1100, it is an investment, though, so make sure that you are really serious about the sport before putting down the cash.
