Earlier this year, I got a SP-1 for one reason, CO2. Now with HPA being more of an option, I would like to move up.
I almost ALWAYS play in the woods, but I enjoy some speedball once in a while. I don't generally need to shoot very fast, but I like to have options. So far, I have narrowed my options down:
-I have had an Minimag before, and I really enjoyed it, (except for the occasional chop or short stroke) so perhaps their RT Custom, but with ULT. Not sure if I like the RT, never used one. No eyes, but level 10 should be good enough. And with the ULT, short stroking should not be a problem. Correct?
-After seeing the G3 on the forums with the longbow stock, it looked amazing. Only thing I was worried about would be the optical board, some love it some hate it. But I have never felt one, so I have no opinion.
-Lastly the 09 SLG, I like that it is a lower price, but a little confused on weather I want to mess with a lower end electro gun or not. And I was not really too excited by the composite construction. I know you can get it in aluminum, but I would like a lighter gun.
What I'm basically looking for:
-Trustworthy woods gun.
-Easily able to use it in speedball settings.
-I don't need anything that streams 50,000 bps, just something simple with semi/burst/or mech if AGD.
-I don't care about ramping or special modes, I just play rec ball.
-Ease of use, nothing I really have to worry about doing much more than keeping it clean and lubed.
-Comfort - Easy to hold and VERY light
-Ability to mount t2w stock, with not much modification
-Something that is not prone to breaking down if it gets a little dirty.
-I'm new to higher end guns such as these, so I don't want anything very complex.
-I don't want to have to put a lot of aftermarket junk on it to make it work well (ex. feedneck, asa, reg, etc)
-I do not really mind what barrel it comes with, I will be using my apex front on a freak system.
I may/may not put a t2w stock on. I have had stocks before, and I like the feel, but with goggles I have never been able to aim down the side well. The t2w stock should be more ergonomic, if that's the correct word to use.
Anyways, just throwing this out there.
Suggestions, additions, anything would be appreciated!
