08 Slg- Has many more gaps than the 09 in it's manufacturing that could have made it better.
08 Rail- This gun comes close but the new slg is more advanced, because it is newer.
pm7- Even though some might disagree, I personally believe the SLG is, pound for pound better than the Pm7.
Angel G7 Fly- The G7 Fly is a better gun than the 09 Slg, but it costs nearly 1100 dollars more.

This marker does require a few upgrades.
If you intend to use this marker for semi-auto play, you will need a new trigger. Also, this marker severely needs a new front bolt and barrel. An on/off switch along with a better feed neck is also disireable.
Speed, Ergonomics, Affordability.
Some poor engineering, Bad stock barrel and front bolt.
This marker is basically an electronpneumatic, fast shooting (stock is capped at 35+ bps!), solid gun for those who may not wish to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on a high end marker. This marker will out-perform all of the Low-end Smart Parts markers, All of the Spyder markers, the Dangerous Power G3, And the newer (06-09) Autococker Garbage. It comes with a solid body and grip, Pretty good board, but more can be desired. It is not paint picky, even with the stock barrel. The eyes are break beam, and work phenominally. The regulator is a Hyper 3 and if you think you will need another one, you are terribly mistaken. The only really bad thing about this marker is how fragile the PLASTIC front bolt turned out to be. it broke the first time i test fired it with paintballs.
I reccomend this marker to anyone who is looking to cut costs playing speedball, or ANY woodsball player, as I use this gun for woodsball and it is a dream to play with. 9/10 for some of the bad manufacturing and bare minimum extras.
Dispute: there are no aftermarket bolts, triggers or boards available for this marker yet. also the board rate of fire caps at 33.33bps. if you can provide me a link to verify a new aftermarket bolt, trigger or boards I will remove this dispute

hahahahahaha this forum user sends me this because i disputed his post.
In the future, you may find that you will have better relations with people when
you are less ill-educated and ignorant. You give me a bad name by disputing my
review instead of first asking about the disputed material. Do your research,
please before you ruin the world of paintball like 90% of the other paintball
noobs who talk aimlessly about their amazing *brass eagle pump* thats way better
than everyone else's ego or dm. Thanks alot.
he sent me a link to zephyrpaintball.com. why dont you take a better look at the proto slg upgraded before you start flaming. they dont offer a aftermarket bolt, trigger or board yet for this marker.
Do you seriously think this gun will outperform the Dangerous Power G3?
I own two G3s, and I just got a brand new Proto SLG. My G3s have worked flawlessly.
The SLG, on the other hand, was broken right out of the box. I have to send it to Dye Tech to see if they can make it shoot. That kind of thing can happen, so you can't judge a gun based on one bad experience.
A frind bought a Proto SLG to use in tournaments this year. His SLG was broken all the time, so he borrowed my other G3 to use in EVERY tourney (which worked flawlessly for him). He still hasn't been able to use his SLG in a tourney, because it breaks every time he tries to use it.
Based on my experience with the SLG, it isn't worth spending money on. If someone offers to give you one for free, take it. But do not spend any money on an SLG, because, regardless of the amount you spend, it will be too much.
You get what you pay for. If you think your going to get a solid gun for $199.......well........your mistaken. If you want a decent gun, your going to have to pay for one. If you want an inexpensive, cheaply made, problematic, unreliable gun, the SLG is for you.
