It may look uncomfortable but in this pic it doesn't seem that way since you can now put your hand up by the LPR.

and heres a pic with no line at all. Honestly I disliked at first glance but if you can look past the line the gun is actually really good looking. Now I'm starting to like it!

But imagine without that ugly half-arsed looking rubber THING.

Any chance someone can photoshop a previous year PE reg on it?

apparently you can remove the rubber, but they say it's not very nice to hold.

I don't know about you guys, but I would expect this in a mid-range marker like the Etek. They did well with milling, and they've gone the right way by making it a little longer (since 2011) but it just seems like the easy way out? Maybe I'm being a little harsh and I'm picking on the little things...but I expect more for my money, considering my Valken G6R shoots more efficient and better than ANY ego I've laid my hands on, and is several hundred less.

I think PE should've just ran with the trend of bigger and bigger trigger guards...



*apologies for the AWFUL photoshop haha

Haha. This thing reminds me of a cheap looking version of the Hostile Rogue. (Look it up if you don't know what that is)

And that's all they need to do is make their frames even weaker! I guess it puts bacon on the table for them though.

I don't see how it looks cheap. You can tell at a glance that it has top notch milling and fit.

As Simon says the macro is not ungainly. PE would not have made it were it ungainly. You can see from the photo that the macro causes no issues, and it's not like any normal fingers would go that far around even if you hold it that low.

Older egos had no room whatsoever for your fingers behind the reg yet nobody complained about them. Check the original etek for one.

This is how I hold my Clone, granted different marker but my hand wraps around the reg. The airline on the LV1 would get in MY way, plain and simple.

What gets me the most is that PE weakened a already weak frame with this gas line, I could see it twisting and causing major issues. Granted you can run macro but it still does not make the frame any stronger.
