Review: My friend ordered this gun, but since he's not here, he let me test it out. When we took it out of the box, the gun was being really troublesome. When connected to an air tank, the gun would not shoot, but just leak and leak. We spent quite a while, before we figured out what it was (inline regulator).
After this, we took it down to shoot. I didn't care for the board, as it's basically as simple as it gets, with the worse being that you have to open it up to switch the firing mode.
It was a silent shot, which is nice. I used the slg for the entire day, about ten games, and put plenty of paint through it. At the beginning, it shot smooth, though the ball tends to curve a bit when your pressure is lower. However, i don't know if its just my gun, but it really chops paint. Say..., every 100 rounds or less, it'd chop some paint. It could be my hopper, but i really don't think so.
the efficiency on the gun is good too.
Conclusion: The proto slg is an okay gun, good for the price. My friend might be a luckier guy, as i've heard that the slg can break down easily. But hey, i've only shot a case or so, so we'll have to see.
At first i was reluctant to use the gun, afraid that it might break and cost me 200 dollars to pay back, but i don't think that's that much of an issue.
If you're on a 200 dollar budget, i'd go with an invert mini, a used intermediate gun, or if you have to, this slg.
