I had the 09, so it had a clamping feedneck :)
OK. This was a great gun to play rec ball with and I still play with it on occasion. But for the money, I still like the SLG basic better. Its an extra 40-50 dollars, but its worth the money. But anyways, this gun can rip if you get everything set right. The only downside to it being able to do that is the eyes. The eyes work great when you shoot slow, but anything past about 13bps and you should just turn em off. I love the new feedneck that comes on the 2009, I've used better, but a clamping feedneck is a clamping feedneck. The magnetic trigger seems to outclass the gun, but the pull feels about half a mile long sometimes, esp. after a week or so of not using it. I have noticed that the trigger seems to un-tune itself after a while, but thats no big deal. Like any gun in this price range, the accuracy (or lack thereof) leaves room for improvement. Just buy a new barrel, and you should be good untill you need to upgrade.
I would recommend this gun to just about anybody who is relatively new to the sport or is on a budget. Overall, its a great gun but dont expect it to out perform its price tag.
