Products Used:
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
Strengths: good looks, totally upgradeable, fast out of the box
Weaknesses: trigger feels a little sloppy, but maybe it's just me.
Review: 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).
Conclusion: 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.

I just recently got an Icon Z for Christmas and I wanna put an Icon sweet spot trigger on it. Problem is I can't get the original trigger off my gun. Know what to do?

no offense or anything but it kind of looks like they copied the e-99

They did. It is virtually the same gun, for less than half the price.

I agree with spokane

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.
