Review: well as a previous owner of the 08 model i can say they they are one step closer to perfecting this marker. I can honestly say I was still a bit disapointed that they didnt include a on/off or a 2 piece 14" proto barrel.

the marker shoots straighter and quieter than the previous model though. the new dye frame is a nice addition, but its plastic. but im sure your all wondering if this warrants a $100 dollar more price tag than the 08 model. my honest opinion "yes it does" both are great markers but this one is much better.

im severly disapointed in the plastic ul frame and the amount of slop in a ul trigger and with the exclusion of a on/off. if the marker didnt shoot so well i might of went with a pmr
Conclusion: Proto give the ppl a on/off and a 2 piece barrel for gods sake. A locking feedneck a on/off and a 2 piece barrel is pretty much the only thing ppl complained about with the 08 model. but the frame is oh so sweet. i gave the 08 a rating of a 9 because we needed to upgrade the gun. and again even though this is clearly better than the 08 model im still giving it a 9. still have to upgrade

thats honestly a very tough call. all guns mentioned need upgrading "clamping feedneck, on/off and a barrel. your also spending 200-250 dollars more for those other guns than the proto slg. i have shot a nxt shocker and a etek2 and would recomend the proto dye slg over those two. i have not tried a protege so i cant give a honest opinion there. the 09 proto ul slg for 300 dollars shoots better than the 500 dollar Etek and the nxt. BUT...... the shocker has better options out there for upgrades whereas the proto slg has very little. its also preference. go out and shoot all 4 of those markers before buying. for me it was a toss up between the 09 proto ul slg or the nxt shocker. both shot great but the 200 dollar price difference was the selling point.

do not get the 08 proto slg. get the 09 proto UL slg if you were to get one. or you could get the 09 proto rail which has a 2 piece proto barrel on/off and a clamping feedneck.
