i cant decide between the 07 and 08

is the 08 realy worth the extra 300 bucks
or should i get an 07 with a zick kit

i figure i could get a set of pants and jursy (empire ss) along with a grillz mask if i get the 07 (with the 300 bucks i would have saved)

The changes to the Ego 8 seem insignificant until you play with one.

The gun is actually completely redesigned. Aside fron the included Zick Kit, the balance of the gun is unbeatable. It feels perfect in your hand. The new bolt is shorter, also reducing kick and air use. I have both, and can't put my 08 down. Well worth it.

You could always get the Etek 2. It is a sexy gun.

the 08 is lighter, comes with the zick kit, is supposedly more efficient, and the thing I like the most, you have the option of switching from micro-switch type trigger to a break-beam trigger (like an Angel A1). Those break-beam triggers are NIIIIICE.

I've shot Ego 7s and 8s. The 8 is a little nicer, but not $300 nicer. Get an '07, then use the extra $300 to get an intense job from OddPB done on it.

i think that the ego 8 is worth it. The gun i lighter, the balance is better, the led is higher contrast so you can see it better in bright light, the bolt moves less distance so it is faster and uses less air.

Also, if i were you, but you don't have to do this, buy the gun from a person who has not messed with the gun. There is no reason to mess with the lpr or the dwell. Every person who had a gun issue on my team messed with those. just fyi

You need to shoot an 08 before you can tell the difference.
If I wasn't already getting an Etek 2, I'd be saving for an 08.
My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.
