The new Proto SLG includes patented Spool Valve Technology, which allows the gun to operate more consistently at a lower
operating pressure, giving you 1500 shots on a 68/4500-air tank. In addition, the new multifunction, self-lubricating Force Button allows clearing the bolt without tools, acts as a cocking mechanism, and prevents unsafe disassembly of the marker when gassed up. The SLG comes standard with the new Hyper3 In-Line Air Regulator featuring higher flow, more consistency, and smoother velocity adjustment. Regular maintenance and cleaning are easy with one-tool-one-screw bolt breakdown. The Proto SLG consists of solid construction using a hardened steel sear, aluminum body and bolt, and a reinforced polymer frame and trigger. All this adds up to a tournament grade package you can afford.

Ok, this marker is very light, one of the lightest out there. The hyper 3 reg is great with a 68ci 4500 psi tank. when i removed the SLG from the box i couldent believe that it was this light. I added a 14 inch barrel from my autococker and slapped on a feedneck and my halo and went shooting, after about half a hopper the marker wouldent fire, i found out a ball had gotten pinched between the bolt and neck but hadent broke this astounded me, normally they would break like tooth picks but no, i used the purge system Proto added to the bolt system and kept shooting untill it happened again. i contacted proto and they gave me some instructions to remove and replace some orings and now i can almost out run my halo v35, this is the best reg setup i have very had.
im glade that i bought this marker and for only $200 on ebay you cant beat that, this marker beats a ion and even a shocker in my eyes( some believe it to be far fectched) even though proto made a cheap marker it does show though. the grips and trigger feel cheap, plan to buy a new UL trigger and grips(maybe some stinger designs ??) my detents went to crap on me after a case, i contacted proto again and they sent me 2 free pair which havent gone out on me yet.
I would recomend this product to anyone, it may change your mind. Even though the SLG's went through some trial and error with Proto I still love it and couldent hope for any more. Go to your field/shop, test it for a day, buy it or dont, this marker is light, fast and great for anyone to use to improve their own skills.
im giving the marker a 9/10, only because i had small problems with it at the start.

My first impression wheneve I got it was," Not the nicest box I've ever seen but it is much better than what my tippmann came in. I'll store in here" so I take it out of the box and screw on the barrel. i instantly realized that this was one small marker; the second lighest I've ever held before (the 07 ego being first).
i had already bought batteries for it so i run out to my shed to grab my allen wrench set just to come back and realize it came with a battery and wrench set. So I decide to dig through my box to see what else came with it: Dye lube, spare parts, crappy barrel condom, manual, and A 1 Year Warranty. very nice so far. I open up the grip, pop my battery in, and turn it on. I turn off the eyes and dry fire it for a second and then start adjusting the trigger to my likings. i had this urge to try the other modes, so i open the grip up again and see that it's a DIP switch marker. i quickly found out that I HATE DIP switches; I couldn't figure out how to change modes even with the manuel. so i get on to pbnation and poste my delima on there(I did figure out how to swap modes =p)
One of my friends was having his b- day party that weekend so then was my perfect time to try out my new marker. after them seeing it, they decided to play a 1-on-6 game. i was the 1. they all had Spyder Victors or Spyder Pilots. I ran circles around them. It shot very nicely and I had no breaks using Impact paint. i got about 500 shots of my N2 tank. not the best, but then again the reg isn't worn in just yet. I can't wait to see the damage I'll be able to do with it once it's worn in.
In it's price range, it's number 1. but it can't compete against the very high end markers like Egos, DMs, or Timmies. 10 out of 10 in my book.

Im gonna be honest this is not my gun its my brothers he's just way too lazy to write this review so im doing it i have used this gun a bit too and i love it on to the review
This gun has an awsome price my brother is only 13 so he dosnt have a part time job cuz he's too yung so he does od jobs and saves all the money he can to get this and some other paintball stuff. People said that oh i breakes down and itl be broken or leak when you get it it dose not leak it works great out of the box. so he cleaned it and lubed it after he read the manual witch is extremely helpful and descriptive then we went to test it and brake it in we used zap vapor balls (low grade walmart ones) this gun did an awsome job we only broke one out of the case and that was in the barrel for some reason btw we were using the stock barrel testing guns with low grade paint usualy gives the gist of the gun if it works well with lowgrade paint than it usually dose amazing with good paint. the firing modes are easy to change and the manual describes it very well so evan my mom would be able to change em thats a complement shes not that great with this kind of stuff but the manual is awsome
the down side of this gun is if you consider it a down side is that the feed neck kinda realy sucks it wont fit an evo 3 so he got a clamp for it ( he got one any ways but we just wanted to see if it worked without it it didnt so no big deal) . the grips kinda need a tiny bit of sanding so paint wont come between them and ya. oh and the trigger is adjustable but the stiffness of it isnt bummer but eh
This gun is an awsome price it has the hyper 3 reg decant barrel Light and eassy to take apart and the manual is awsome this is a gun for anyone that dosnt want to spend a lot but wans quality id sugest it to those people
If I had to complain........Not the lightest trigger in the world, but not bad.
I just got my SLG a few weeks ago. So far, I like it better than any marker I have owned. My Angel was way too bulky and terribly expensive. The features on it were so unnecessary. The 03 Shocker was really nice, but had a few issues whereby the marker would not fire (not my loader). My 68 Automag wasmy baby, but was moody. I wouldn't mind having another 68, though I didn't care too much my RT. The Autococker is accurate, but required a little maintenance. It also wasn't the fastest marker to shoot. Spyders are Spyders. Simple little creatures that work, but nothing fancy. My Tippman was a workhorse. Reliable and accurrate, but slow and difficult to disassemble (rarely needed to dissamble). Now to my Proto SLG. This little effer works! I was kickin ass with a gravity hopper in a game over the weekend. The marker is fast (could be a little bit faster), antichop is flawless, accuracy is more than acceptable, reliable, and its design is sleek. I wish the frame and trigger was aluminum, just for asthetic reasons. The gun comes with a set of wrenches, o-rings, barrel plug..I mean bag. This is a whole-lotta marker for the price. I feel ill paying what I did for the Angel and Shocker.
There are many great paintball guns on the market, but for the low price of $200, you will not be dissatisfied.....I promise!
-Easy to work
-Very small feedneck.
I saw this gun online and was going back and forth between this and the Spyder VS2. I went up to the proshop and held the gun, compared to the VS2. I was amazed at the wieght and I liked the feel. I bought the gun took it home and started it up immediatly and went out and within a minute of getting it out of the box I was firing off shots! i was amazed at how easy it was to work straight out of the box. I read the manual and was also amazed at how easy it was to adjust and get to your liking and how custamizable it was (as far as the settings). I went and played with it with my friend and I found that he had gotten the VS2 and after comparing them I was really glad I had chosen the SLG over the VS2. I was hitting people like crazy which (even at long range) which surprised me considering it only has an 11" barrel. I would recommend this gun to anyone!
I would recommend this gun to anyone who wants to have an amazing gun you don't have to put hundreds of dollars of upgrades into to be competitive. For 199.99 (I think they just lowered the price) this gun is amazing and I would not hesitate to get another one!! The SLG is an extremely reliable gun and it's a steal at 199.99 (again I think that is the new price) Get this gun!!!!!!!
olive green dust system x nme le , ruby red halo-b with ripdrive , empire fuel 72/4500 pis low pressure tank ,12 inch freak barrel stainless steel back 05 all american front, was board included,dye rhino tank cover red/black
trigger ,maybe a new board ,barrel kit
I bought the gun about 45 min ago...i went out and shot it the i tweked the gun /board to my liking the shot it again. over all i think many youger players will see the proto slg and be heart set on owning one and the more advaced players will see it as a chance to build up and mode a proto.
If you got 250$ big ones to spare go check out the slg, maybe this gun will slow down the ion fad......
i have a freak Jr. on it and a virtue board and looking for a new trigger
clamping feed neck
Speed of the gun
When you get shooting up to 20-30 balls a second it starts to blowback.
the gun is just amazing. this is my fourth gun and if i just customize a few more things then it might be a decent back up gun to a dm7 or dm8. this gun i traded in for my ion xe because i realized that they where only selling it for 130$ so i went ahead and got it and since then i havent had one regret. this gun is really worth the price and i would compare it to a smart parts NXT shocker or a mini. its just that good. dont listen to all that crap people talk when they say they got a angel or an bob long. its the player that makes the game not the gun.
You got the money buy it you dont then dont play paintball..
Felt a little cheap at first
Feed neck is terrible
I haven't had a lot of experience with this gun, I just got it a fews days ago, but it seems like a good buy for the money. I paid 200 direct fom proto, It is loud and as I said it felt a little cheap at first, but after I took it out and shot it i was more impressed. simple and reliable thus far.
It uses a lot of gas though, the last gun I used I could get away with about 700+ rounds with a 48/3000 tank but this gun requires 68/4500 for any extended use. I get about 400 ball with my current tank. not a big deal just need a little extra money for start up.
I just play rec ball, so that's why I went with this gun and it seems the right path. I can't really say why i didn't go with smart parts, it was really just a coin toss for me, I have heard and seen good things about both. maybe i was wrong... I almost bought the epiphinay for about 50 more.
So far so good though, the feed neck sucks, i had to jimmy rig the hopper I bought to fit in there correctly. Everything else i cant complain about though, decent accuracy, good price, and easy to clean and use, no chops yet, but I haven't put it to the test either.
I like it, not the greatest styling, and I can't say anything about its' competitors, but i would recommend it to any rec baller, total start up for me was about 350.
Ion (it was made to counter the ion domination of cheap high end marker, at least that was we're told by the DYE rep)
Spyder (cant compare)
Tippmann 98, A5, eXT, XT, XL

Feedneck is a MUST! (whats the point of creating a neck which could not fit almost a lot of loader?)
better hosing system (2 of our SLG blew off)
It appear to be a strong competitor for Ion in term of perfomance
Please refer to the comment
being on of the first person in Asean to own SLG, we were very excited when the rep from Dye international told us it appear to be one of the best cheap-high-end marker availabe to counter the long-domination by Ion.
I tried the 1st marker and shoot about 1000 pallet ( tournament grade), 1 ball break. suspect it was the eye problem. clean it up and shot another 500, turn out to be fine. the accuracy can compete with Ion.
for a beginner, im sure this is one of the best marker available in the market as its ready to use without having to put too much mod.
but the neck is a total disappointment. the o-ring is to hard and i have to take it off and change it with the paper tape.
barrel sock? yes it suck. i know its a cheap marker but hey common, Dye can you at least print your brand to make it look better?
another 2 of our marker blew off the hose when we install the tank. so those who wanna buy this marker please get ready with this sort of problem.
trigger is also not comfortable to use, but if you know how to change the spring into something smoother, then it fixed the prob.
its a good marker though
Please get it, you'll not gonna regret it. but at the same time please get ready for the prob may occur but its common for every first badge product. overall i give out 7.6 cause of the few prob we experienced
