Review: This gun totally rocks for the price of $200! Without a doubt, this is the BEST gun for the price!

Reliability

When I first gassed it up, it had a few issues, like the bolt sticking. Turns out, all the gun need was for the bolt to be pushed in and out a few times and some lube. If you take care of this gun properly, you will have NO issues and this will not let you down!

Performance

When I first shot this gun, I was like "Oh my gosh! This is so frickin' quiet!" The SLG has some kick to it, but hardly noticeable compared to a Spyder or Tippmann. It also comes stock with the Dye Hyper 3, which is a very consistent regulator. My shots had less than satisfactory groupings at 75 feet, but this was due to 8 month old seconds paint, which chopped a few times also. Given decent paintballs, this thing will shoot great!

This thing takes a lot of heat because it is a sear tripper. I would like to say that this means nothing, and I would still take over a "real" EP gun just because it offers great performance and remains so simple.

Aesthetics

This is a very nice looking gun. I actually prefer the looks of the 08 SLG over the 09. It looks more like a "high end". This thing also feels like a high end. The overall look of the gun is very nice. The only things I don't like are the trigger and feedneck. I would buy new ones immediately.

Conclusion: If you are looking for $1,250+ paint-ripper to impress your friends with and so you can fit in with the "cool pro guys," I suggest you look elsewhere. If you want an amazing performing marker that provides you with awesome features for such a low price, you've found the right one.
