Cons: detents
I bought my maker from an old teammate that need some money and to lose some of his guns. Gave me a great price and let me shot it before buying. Also I wanted a ego really bad. So I didnt care what series it was or year it was made. I just want so bad.

I love the way it feels and great speed and also so light to. I have a B2 loader on it. Makes the marker top havey from time to time but that doesnt mean much hue to the body frame and lightness to the maker. It isnt a huge air hog. Also works great with every type of barrel.

Never had a problme with the intrals to the gun so far. Also never had to do alot of work for the gun also. The only think is i had to change the detents after buying the gun just in case they were messed up.

If you ever get your hands on one of this old guns. KEEP IT! use it as a back up or a pracite gun. They will never let you down.

I bought this gun in 2005 when they came out. I took a long break from paintball, and now it's worth $200. Pretty disappointing for me, but certainly a well-priced pickup now. These guns had a design flaw where if you screw the grip screws in too far, they can pierce your solenoid and break a spring in it. Beware of this when buying one. Solenoids are very hard to come by now. Otherwise, the gun works fine...it kicks quite a bit, and is pretty loud, but once you learn how to maintain it you can trust it to work for you.

I have owned this gun since 05. i am the original owner for me. between now and 05, it has been my starting gun. I have tried using different markers, but always strayed back to the 05 STOCK! The only thing that has bugged me about it for years was the noise. But for me personally, when im playing idc how loud it is, since im always yelling anyway. ive seen some for sale for around $200, which is a great buy. thinking of picking another up for spare parts!!

I bought this gun brand new in 2005 in the UK for 1200 along with other guns along the way up to date ( all 17 of them ) and can honestly say the 05 EGO was the best buy I`ve ever bought, from the day I bought it until now I haven`t even changed an " o " ring , I sent It once to Planet to service and overhaul, It shoots ropes and can kick anyone`s arse out there playing sup-Air. keep It clean and look after It and It will look after you , just like to say I`ve used this the most over the x 5 years and still use It today, would like to mention that if you keep the pin holding the trigger clean then clear nail varnish the ends DO THIS and you`ll cherish this gun....Bluey www.care-bears-uk.com

I bought an 05 ego back in 2006 or 2007 used, so please disregard the price paid.
back then the marker was great. For it's time the marker was fast, accurate and efficient. It does sound like you are shooting a cannon though, and mainly compared to markers now it was kind of heavyish. Although compared to markers now it is not as accurate, fast, or efficient either.
I loved my 05 ego. I had a ton of ups on it. If you can find one used I would reccommend it mainly for those that want to take a try at tourny speedball markers but don't want to spend over 300 currently as of 2011. Chances are you can find one with alot of upgrades. I do recommend for ups a new board, barrel, laser eyes, and feedneck. Although those can be considered a personal preference.

Although you do have to realize that as of 2011 parts for the 05 ego are a little harder to come by.
