genesis surge II - decent, but not as upgradeable.
new barrel ( of course). If you plan to use a larger bottle you will want a better drop forward, as the stock drop doesn't balance the gun well with a large bottle. ( although the incredibly light barrel adds to that effect. better hopper
good looks, totally upgradeable, fast out of the box
trigger feels a little sloppy, but maybe it's just me.
opened the box, set the velocity adjuster and let'er rip. gun is ready to go right out of the box. Only flaws so far are that the trigger has a little more slop in it than I would have liked, and it definitely needs an electro-hopper. I was getting quite a few dry fires once I started rocking the trigger ( but I guess it's a good thing that it outfires a standard hopper in stock form).
great starter gun. for the price I can't think of any gun I'd rather have. I kind of wish I had gone with the led model now just for sheer fun factor, however I can always just get the 32 degrees trigger frame for it and VIOLA! giving it a 9 because of the trigger slop.
9 out of 10

They're both owned by NPS. Its no "copying", just one department of their company trying to make the same gun for a lower price. Kingman couldn't do that, it would make them look dumb, releasing one gun for 200 and another for 80, exactly the same. So 32 degrees did it, and i hear its a pretty big seller. It looks like the E-99 because it is an E-99, minus the gutted trigger frame.
