New Mantis Ego

First thread in here! Just thought I'd start it out by showing off the new PL Ego. I'm not to impressed but hey, it looks alright.

I do not like the Green + Yellow. But I'd take any Ego anyday!

And so the ego goes the way of the shocker with private labels starting to produce their many different milling patterns.

I like the black with green myself, but if I was going to buy a PL ego I'd save up a bit more and get a different one.

My thoughts too. Any word on performance upgrades?

Just the star trigger/frame, and of course the milling and anno's.

Here is another picture:



EDIT: I found more pics!





It pretty much looks just like the original Ego. There is barely any change. The colors combinations are nice though. Thats what makes it look so good.

Ego Rating:

1. Nexus Ego
2. Mantis Ego
3. Regular Ego
4. XSV Ego

Thats how I rate it. I only like the XSV in the gold with black accents though. The other one is just alright. Im not into all the milling on it

Bigger, go ahead but the wavy look it has is so stupid. I just hate it a ton. It has ruined all Egos for me, stock is the only one I like. Just for that reason. I guess that's a good thing because that means i'll spend less money on an Ego when I do get one by not getting a PL one.

IMO I liked the larger trigger guard over the stock one. I'm a person who needs a larger trigger guard cuz my fingers like space to move on the frame. The wavy look might not be as appealing as the stock one, but looks come secondary to performance.

Oh, and I personally think the Mantis jewel is ugly.

The curve does look kind of weird. I just like the size that it adds.
