Review: First I need to give a huge thank you to the guys at Dye. I had purchased a regular SLG but it was having problems. When I sent it in to be worked on Dye was unable to find the parts to fix it and sent me the Ultralite SLG.

The Ultralite trigger fram is the most incredable feater on this marker. The one on the Ultrilight SLG is thick composite witch makes it light but fairly strong. I've pulled few trigers in my life and this is the best. When I was playing with my Ultalite SLG the triger felt so natural that firing my marker is almost thought less. The trigger is desgined with the piviot point behind the the actual triger. This makes is to you don't have to your hand coming strait on but it can be angeled up a little bit, witch is the position your hand is normaly in when playing paintball. This triger on the Ultralite fram is nicer then the one on Epiphany or my Dad's Fussion.

The stock barrel is verry well made but lacks something major on acriacy. I recived a Freak Barrled and with the freak the Ultralite SLG is very acurat.

The Ultrilite SLG comes with a stock clamping feed neck. I never used it since I had goten a nicier clamping feed neck for my old SLG witch had horibal feed neck. The stock feed neck on the Ultrilite SLG is acutaly the same one on the Proto Matrix Rail. I have heard a lot of complaints that because it is plastic the ring of the clamping feed neck breaks esaly. If don't want a hole new feed neck but don't want to stick witht he stock ring I know New dezine sells just rings.

Like most other single tube markers the Ultrilite SLG has bolt out back tecnolagy. This might not sound like a big deal. But After having to disasimble my old Ephiphany several times I desided that I should have bot something with bolt out back. Seriously it took me 6 minutes to disasemble the Epiph by only like five seconds to get to bolt of the SLG.

The Utrilite come with what is called a silencer. I'm not joking that is what is called. It is little peace of plastic with holes in it that sticks of the end of the plunger about an inch. I have no clue how the heck this works but it does work. The original SLG is a loud as all get out but the Ulrilite SLG is actualy fairly quiet.

The degassing button is fenomanal. The button is where you have to insert your alen rench in order to remove the back cap. Once press the button you marker degases and it is safe to remove the back cap. This pervents The back cap from becoming a rocket. Personaly I don't know why Dye doesn't put this on all it's markers.

As fare as the ASA goes it isn'r really a huge problem. I like on/of ASA but just because the SLG doesn't have one is no reason to not buy this marker.

Something realy cool that Dye does is they put a O ring sizer in with you spare parts kit. What you do is take the O ring and compar it to the pictures on the sizer the you know what size O ring you need to put where.

The Ultrilite SLG aslo come with a lot of high quality parts. Both the Regulator and the Board are the same ones you would find in the Dye Matix serioius witch are thousand dollar markers. The board comes equiped with all the important fireing modes, simi-atuo, PSP three shot birst, Millinium ramping, and NXL full-auto.

The grip is really nise. It also has three holes that enable you to adjust several things with out havint to remove the grip. It has two holes for the triger adjustment screws. And one that enables you get at the screw that hold you ASA on.

They way you insert a battery into the Ultrilight SLG is really cool. You slide it in and then it is pressed up agains two prongs. This means there are fewer wires. However you also have to make sure that you get right size battery. If you don't have the right battery easily avalibale just place a couple layers of duck tap on the botomm of the battery and that will fix it.
Conclusion: This is great marker with great featers for pairly low price.
