The 2009 SLG is a hybrid construction of aluminum and composite materials, providing you durability with incredible lightweight function. The SLG’s patented Self Closing Valve (SCV) 2 Piece Bolt system allows the marker to operate at a low 145psi. This low operating pressure provides superior accuracy with less paint breakage, and yields an impressive 1500 shots on a 68/4500. Newly refined features such as the pressure release safety button, clamping feedneck, aluminum trigger, internal bolt silencer, hardened steel sear, and aluminum bolt makes the SLG the clear choice in the sea of introductory markers. The 2009 SLG is a perfect example of unequaled quality, meticulous engineering, and unmatched manufacturer support, the benchmarks that make Proto the first name in paintball.

The UL frame if you really want to, it might help you shoot faster and it weighs less but the gun is light anyway. (UL is also more durable)
No real big issues
This gun is a pretty good deal for $200. It has everything a beginning to intermediate paintballer on a budget needs. It shoots pretty straight and is most suited for speedball but you definently could use it in woodsball. The only issue I can see is the frame is a composite material, but thats no big deal, its pretty sturdy any way.
I would recommend this gun to any paintballer who wants a great marker.

whatever u want
The 09 Proto Slg is a great gun. Its easy to take apart and clean. The manual is great. Its a good speedball marker for the price. As soon as I got this gun I shot in my backyard.
The stock barrel is pretty accurate but I suggest getting a new one. If u want the gun to shoot fast Youll have to ajust the setting because out of the box its a little slow
If your on a budget or want a good back up, buy it. You wont be dissapointed

I bought this gun because i hated my Spyder Vs2 so much because it wouldn't recock. And i love this gun.It is fast enough to reach 33.33bps or you can set it to almost any bps you want because it has 41 speeds.The only thing i don't like about it is the stok barrel its fine for speedball but i play mostly rec ball and its not accurate at long range.
Get it is fast enough for woodsball and speedball you just need a new barrel.

I got this gun as a replacement to my PM5 and my A5. I need a gun that does well in Airball and Woodsball. This gun is it. Very lightweight, great feel in hands(i have big hands too), well balanced.
The one complaint i have on this gun is the stock 11" Barrel. GET A NEW ONE. The stock barrel isn't terrible but you are undercutting the performance by a lot if you choose to use it. I have tried Smart Parts Freak and Redz Pepperstix on this gun and the Pepperstix win by far. I was able to shoot within a foot grouping from 150ft away.
Feedneck is awesome. Fits my Torque Loudmouth, Halo B and Prophecy loaders amazingly.
If you really care about it get an ASA. It doesn't make a huge difference but by now all guns should come standard with one.

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! please do buy this gun. i absolutely love this gun. it's performance is just awesome. it is super and i like that. it fits in your hands nicely and is very lightweight. it isn't much heavier, at all, than the ultralite slg. i love the trigger. it is very nice for walking. i am one for upgrades to a gun and i'm not getting a new trigger for this. it is easy to adjust to make it a lot more sensitive. you can adjust it with how far you can pull it back and how fast it will react after you pull the trigger. it is also very easy to adjust the board. with the stock board you can get 33 bps (duh.) You can set the bps to basically exactly what you want. you can also change the mode (as in psp,millennium, nxl, etc.) i love the fact that it comes stock with a clamping feedneck. it fit and held my empire b just fine. it has a hyper 3 inline regulator so it is more efficient with shots, which in turn saves you $. it is very easy to take out the bolt to lube or fix something. it has eyes so it avoids chopping balls and you can also turn them off (another duh.) it is very durable so it won't fall apart diving into a bunker or the snake. small. light. fast. durable. what more could you ask for?
Buy it. period. this is a great gun from beginners to pretty experienced players. it is the best possible gun for the money in my opinion. it is awesome and a must buy. get it.
Proto SLG 09
Invert Reloader 2
Pure Energy 48 CI 3000 PSI Nitrogen Tank
Maybe A longer Barrel
On mine, it is a little difficult To put on My nitrogen tank.
This gun Is amazing. The first thing I noticed was the sexy body and design of the gun. I held it and it was suprisingly light and easy to maneuver. I went outside and shot a few and its accuracy amazed me, along with the fire rate and how great the trigger is. I played a 1 on 1 with my friend, with him having an ION, and I lit him up. The gun is pretty straight forward and easy to understand, except the circut board. Idk about that but im really new to the whole circut board thing and i dont know how to work it.
In conclusion, This gun is the sexiest ive ever seen, its really Accurate And Fast, comfortable, and Durable. I reccomend this gun to Any Paintballer.
Tippmann 98 Custom, 14 in. cermamic J&J barrel, 16 oz. compressed air. Not nearly as good as the SLG.
Proto SLG 09, 72 ci. 3000psi Pure Energy, Empire Magna hopper
Maybe a new barrel...but its still very accurate with the stock.
Accuracy, speed, weight, everything really.
Where my tank goes in seems to be stripped. Maybe just me?
The SLG 09 is definitely the best gun that i have ever used. I have only had a tippmann custom in the past but I have used a few others and this is by far the best. The ref i had took my gun after I got shot one of the times and shot it a few times and looked it over. He said that he would choose the Proto SLG 09 over the DM8. The only thing he said was better about the DM8 was the grip.
This gun is very very accurate. In a woodsball game, you can shoot across about 50 yds or more away and be able to adjust your gun to hit someone that hasn't spotted you yet in just a few shots. Obviously it wont be perfectly straight for those people that like to put their guns up to 400fps and then say a place sucks because they turned it down to 275fps (yes, someone has said this to me). Speed is good in my book. Finally got a new hopper which is the Empire Magna Drive. I haven't had any problems with the gun as of speed yet.
The only problem I have right now, is that during the middle of my first day of playing, it seemed that my nitro tank started to screw further into the gun when I was screwing it in and I heard a grinding noise. The very very bottom of my nitro tank is rough and not smooth now and it seems like it is being stripped. This could be just my gun cause I have never heard of this before. Also, there is no leaking at all, so I'm not positive what is wrong with that right now. Other than that, this gun has been perfect for me. This is a great gun for any player of any experience and is in a great price range.
I recommend this gun to anyone. Like I said, I believe my tank problem is just my gun since I have not heard this problem ever until me. It is very accurate, speed is very good, and the weight is just over 2.2 lbs. I believe. Amazing gun overall.

viewloader tritan 2....haha what can i say, worst gun ever
spyder electra 08......better
none of these compare the the speed and accuracy of the slg
Poto SLG 09 stock
viewloader eVLution 3
48ci by 3000psi
Feed neck is all i could think of. If your heavy into paintball i would probably recommend a new barrel, but it is a pretty accurate little thing.
Every thing besides the feed neck.
The slg isnt a bad gun by any means. it was either the slg or the epiphany and i went for the slg after spending about 2 weeks reading reviews. im happy with my decision. The gun is very efficient with air, i threw on a cheap guerrilla air 48ci 3000psi tank and i got, which i culdnt believe, about 650 shots from it, i have two and i got about 630 from the other one. i am amazed at this gun. the only flaw that the gun seems to have is that it seems a little weak where the grips meet the main portion of the gun. it seems like it has to much give from side to side, and when i first gassed it up it had a slow leak coming from where the micro line attached to the reg. After 1 game of playing, my eyes stoped working, i immediately called dye and they sent me a new pair no questions asked, dye has with out a doubt the best customer service ever. other than these minor flaws the gun rips, it says its capable of 33 bps but i dont think its that fast, ill give it 28bps on a good day. love this thing. there is no reason for the "pro/sponsored" or even the "paintball know-it-all" to be slaming this thing because it is a sear tripper, honestly if you say its a "jazzed up spyder" like ive heard others say, you should be slapped. I have shot the rail right before i shot the slg, and i honestly couldnt tell the difference, the slg seemed just as smooth and as solid as the rail. the rail was out of my price range but even if it wasnt, i still would have gone with the slg.
This is a great gun for the price of it, just make sure you have a fast enough hopper to keep up with it.
