The biggest difference is that the Rail is spoolie and the SLG is a hybrid sear tripper and spool valve. The feednecks are also different and the Rail has a Hyper 2 reg and the SLG has a Hyper 3 reg.

would it be worth it to spend the extra money to get the rail?

Uh i would take a Rail over the SLG but i'd much rather have a Fusion over the Rail.

The Fusion is ready to go out of the box w/ no upps like the SLG and Rail need. Fusion is also made a little better and will probably be more efficient.

New trigger and alloy back cap really. But that still leaves a plastic frame, eye covers, feedneck, and a non on/off ASA i think as well.

Both the Rail and SLG have eyes, the Rail has semi-auto, PSP, and NXL ramp modes and the SLG has the same but has a Millennium ramp as well. I thought the Rail had a 4th mode which might be the other ramp mode but i can't remember. The two modes though that you'd probably ever use are semi-auto and PSP ramping. If you don't have the cash for the Rail then yeah the SLG is a would be a good choice as would the RS as well.

That's a hard one. I have held an RS yet but if it's similar the VS2 which it basically is then i'd go w/ the SLG. I was pretty impressed w/ the small size and lightness of the SLG more then the chunky mid weight of the VS2. Overall performance might be a little in favor of the SLG as well. One thing i forgot to ask is will you be using HPA or CO2?

The RSX IMO is a mistake by Kingman it's pretty much an RS but w/ a Tadao board and not being about to use CO2. I'd take the SLG over the RSX hands down.

SLGs are great markers. they operate at 145 psi and have next to nothing for cycling mass. they're tiny, very light weight and highly ergonomic. they're also electromechanical. they make awful clacking sounds like a low-end blowback when them they shoot, but they shoot like a high-end proto matix.

the rail is bigger and heaiver than the SLG and has a few more plastic parts. however the rail does not have an electromechanical solenoid and will not make as much noise as a result. the rail halso has quite a few more AM parts out there for it such as frames and triggers.

I thought this thread was going to help me but I am still torn between the two on which one to get, or to get the new Spyder Electra '08 if it was $200

the electra is garbage. it runs at 300psi. that's not smooth and no where near the shooting qualities of the SLG or rail. forget about the 08 electra.

rail or SLG? simple. do you want a really short compact marker (SLG) or do you want something a little taller (rail). the SLG is a little cheaper too. it can be had for under $200 at most places and used ones go for under $175. i'm selling mine for $175 or possibly trading it for an old action markers diadem + gear.

the rail has the advantage in aftermarket parts. there are no frames for the SLG or metal eye covers as of yet.
