Review: I got my Dark SL 74 from Warped Sportz south in MS.  When I first got it I was shocked at its looks.  The pix on any site does it NO justcie at all!!!  I sat down and read the manual to find out how to put it into operation.  The manual is very user friendly and also gives some troubleshooting issues you may come across down the line.  Ok now for the good stuff:This gun is by far the lightest gun I have ever owned/held/played with!  According to the specs on the PE site...weighing a mere 1.87 LBS is nuts.  Even with a full hopper and 68/45 tank...its still very light!  This is a big factor for those ballers that play the 24 hour scenario games or the new SPPL formats.  When you need to play long periods...this one will not leave you tired out from luggin around a lot of weight.  Speaking of long games...after about 3 cases of paint...I played a SPPL format (2x25 min halfs)!  I filled my tank up to 4000 before game time and went out to play.  When the game was done...I had 2 pods left from 1000 rounds of paint.  I looked at my had about 1000-1200 left to play with!  That is very good in my book...I am used to playing with matrices...and they are not even close to that.  Great guns...but cant compare in air efficiency!!!  After breaking in the Dark SL 74, I was able to lower my dwell to 12 and took all the kick it had right out.  It has virturally NO KICK at all!  No kick...means more paint on target!  I have shot over 5 cases thru it already and have yet to have any issues and not one ball break period!  The manual tells you everything you need to know about the maintenance, programming and operating this gun.  I highly recommend that anyone who gets the manual first.  Its nice to pay a little extra and get more with it...the Shaft kit is a great barrel kit!  The only thing I would recommend for upgrades is the Lucky 15 kit...but that is because I have been shooting them for years...the Shaft kit is jsut as good...I just prefer the one piece!
Conclusion: In conclusion...the EGO family are great guns!  However, with the Dark SL 74 you get the EGO MAXED!!!  If you can afford the extra cash, get the SL 74 (Dark, Avalanche, Standard, etc) as there will be nothing else you will need to buy to upgrade it!
