On the vice - Teching the vice's typically gives me fits, and I always have FSDO problems. I REALLY love Bob's markers, but until I get better at tuning them or they get simply I'm just not sure they will be for me.
Why do you think an Ego would fit my criteria better then the Alien Independence or the borg RX? I know Ego's they were around when I played. I always wanted just a little more heft on the marker when I was shouldering friends egos. I almost feel like the Borg RX is a slightly larger ego (shape wise) from the pics, which seems like it would be perfect.
Looks like the Borg is a bit smaller overall then my Pimp, while being much lighter. Buut it still has all the room I want on the trigger frame, and should shoulder and sight super similarly.
