Review: I started to play speedball with my buddies so I decided that I would need to buy I gun that would keep up with other fast guns but is cheap. So I bought the SLG, and I was very happy with what I got.

First of all its in game preformance is awsome. It shoots fast and it doesn't chop (unless your stupid like me and forget to clean the eyes). I find It is very easy to run around with because it is so light and small. The fact that it has 4 different tournament modes also makes it better. To make the gun the best possible you buy a new barrel.

The maitenece for this gun is very simple. All you need is a 1/4 inch allen key and you can take out the bold and clean the inside of your gun. The only thing is that the SLG doesn't come with the right allen key to take off the grip to get at the board and batteries. Instead I have to use a square-headed screw driver to take it off because I still haven't found one that fits.

I will now explain the main bad things about the gun.
1- stock feedneck is crap, so as sood as you buy the gun, buy a clamping feedneck.
2- Small leaks may occur once and a while in the hyper3 reg, but that just means you have to replace the o-ring (no big deal)
Conclusion: If you upgraded it as suggested, this gun is a 10/10
but I will rate it as what it comes with stock, so...
Rating:
9 out of 10

As for batteries, this gun comes with (and works fine with) any standard 9V alkaline battery. It doesn't require 9.6V like the Spyders do, so I don't know why you're saying it needs "high end batteries." I shot my SLG on the original battery through a good 2 cases worth of paint as well as perhaps another 1000 or so shots dry firing before changing the battery not because the gun was not working but because it was at around 8.3V and I didn't want to get caught in a game with a dead battery. It probably would have shot longer than that.

As for the grip frame, my SLG came with all the allen keys necessary except for the .050" key used to adjust the trigger set screws and the 3/8" allen wrench to take off the bottom of the Hyper3 regulator.

The grip frame and ASA rail adjustment screws use a 3/32" wrench, which came with my gun. If you want you can go to any hardware store and get a US Standard folding allen wrench set for $5 if you want to get all the wrenches you need. But you're probably going to have to look around some more if you want the 3/8" allen key for the regulator. I ended up buying a separate 3/8" wrench because it's pretty bulky to stick it on a folding set and you'll rarely need it.

The battery that came with the slg worked fine, but I tried 2 other batteries that I bought for cheap and neither of them would allow me to shoot the gun. It was not until I used an energizer battery that the gun acctually worked.

Oh that is strange. Although in all honesty I wouldn't use cheap generic batteries in a paintball gun anyways, they're probably not going to hold a charge for long.
