Review: I'd have to say the SLG is the best gun on the market for under $300. When I opened the box the first thing I noticed was how small it is. The SLG is tiny compared to most guns I've seen. It's very compact, easy to use, and light weight. It's listed at 2.2 lbs but I don't think it is even that heavy.

The SLG is very fast as well. The manual says it can reach up to 30bps. It is just as fast as any high-end gun out there and you'll never be out gunned. Another great feature is the new Hyper3 Reg. I've so far put more than 4000 shots through it and every one has been within +/- 5fps of one another.

The one bad thing about the SLG is the stock feed neck. I'm not sure what Dye was thinking when they designed it. You are supposed to push your hopper in and two o-rings hold it in. Well, because it is too small, when I pushed my hopper in it pushed the top o-ring out. By the way it is nearly impossible to get the o-ring back in.

Well back to the good things about the SLG. The stock barrel is surprisingly accurate. After using it I see no reason for replacing it unless you just like a longer barrel. Good player should have no problem gunning down opponents with the stock barrel.

I can't explain quite how the bolt works as well as the manual. Some say it's like a spyder which it is, but it is also somewhat different. It Is made by Dye so I'm sure it is reliable.
Conclusion: I highly recommend the SLG to anyone into paintball at any skill level. The same performance expected from every proto for only $250. Just remember to have about $30 on hand for a new feed neck. I give this gun about a 9.5 which rounds to a 10.
10 out of 10

Nice review...I hear you on it being nearly impossible to get the o-ring back in. Actually, if you managed to get it back in (I haven't) then respect!
