08 ego - close
luxe - smoother shooting
geo - just didnt like mine.
poison ego 10
performance wise your ready to go out of the box. i threw on SPD grips and a green macroline For looks haha.
simple design = RELIABLE
barely noticeable kick.
I got this gun barely used in a trade for my LUXE. i miss the way it shoots but the extra reliability is more than welcome. i had owned an 08 ego a year or so before the ego10 and was very suprised by how much the kick has been reduced and the overall feeling of the gun is more natural.
Lets start out with the problem i had. when i tested this gun from the previous owner i didnt have a chrono. it was shootin so inaccurate that i almost didnt buy it...but i figured hey, its either the barrel or paint, so it would be an easy fix. anyways turns ot he had it shootin at about 350, so when i put it to around 290 it was much better.
Now, when i finally got it to a chrono the gun was very dissappointing. The gun was so inconsistant i almost wanted to contact the kid for my luxe back. first 5 shots were :
Seeing as i am the kind of person that would prefer to fix his gear then buy new stuff, i began messing around. First off i reloaded Factory settings. (changed nothing, i think the kid already was using this). im not sure what did the trick as i played with everything at once before i tested it out. heres what i did. :
- Replaced and lubed Rammer o-rings.
- cleaned and lubed HPR and LPR
- turned dwell up from 10.5 --> 13
- adjusted LPR one full turn in from flush.
(if you are reading this, you will most likely have to lower your velocity through the reg because the dwell jacks it up a bit.)
Anyways, my ego now shoots from about 293-297.
performance wise it is the smoothest EGO to date (opinion). my first time playing with it at a walkon with my team i killed 7 people in 3 games and only got shot once. Being a front player this gun is everything i could ask for. ive been sliding on this thing for nearly 3 months and it hasnt gone down once.
Buy this gun. Ignore your friends telling you other guns, Ignore the SL's. if you buy this gun and still cant kill people, stop playing.
