Thinking of an SLG

Hey all,

I'm thinking picking up an SLG from the local shop. I was thinking of getting some kind of a mechanical blowback for use in the crappy weather but SLG's are just as cheap as a mech gun and are so simple that I think they would suit the purpose of keeping my expensive gear out of the bad weather.

Has anyone spent any time with one that can give me an idea if they're worth the $200 price tag?

Well they arent truly mechanical, i am pretty sure they are an electronic sear tripper, like a mag-the spring return, but the maintenance is simple.

All the info needed can be found here.

I know they're not mechanical but the price is so close to a mech that I thought I might pick one up instead of a mech as my bad weather gun. I generally like electro's better than the mech's you can get for the price of the SLG so if it's a reasonably good piece for the price I may get one.

Thanks for the link!

Good review! Did you get much time with it in the real world or just move it out before playing much with it?

I loaned it to someone for a few games, and it performed flawlessly, and they where beginners. It's also very easy to control the electronics. Top button gun on/off, bottom button Eyes on/off.

Is it just me or do the SLG internals appear to be identical to the DP Threshold with the exception of the bleed button? If not for the sear tripper design of the SLG I'm thinking those guns would be identical twins on the inside......

I've got one. I'd say it's the best marker for the money (performs a bit like an eMag, but better gas efficiency) and simple to maintain. The only issues I had with it were the crappy-ness of the stock feedneck (loctited on ) and the eyecovers/screws, both of which stripped, and so did the spares. The detents are crap too...

Basically, an A+ for price and performance, but set aside $60ish for new detents, feedneck, and ASA.

My Eyecovers stripped too. I didn't have any trouble with the detents, and my Halo fits in it. An ASA isn't required, although an on/off is nice.

Interesting fact, these are more air-effecient than the DM's.

Absolutely! It's one of the most efficient markers I own, to be honest, which is surprising considering that it's basically an Automag with a better sear system. The batteries even last longer than my PM8 (except that if you leave them in they get a bit drained).
