AWESOME marker, lube before/after play and you will have a marker for a LONG while. REALLY QUIET with my underbored freak, really consistent and acurate around 260fps. just a basic knowledge is needed to service the whole marker. 2 piece bolt, like 3 O-rings if I remember well.

had it for 2+ yrs and never had a problem

my mods: Freak/AA 14" using Empire B reloader

Cons: Discontinued Model
I bought my 09 Proto Slg Ul after doing tons of research. I compared the Vibe, G3, PMR, Mini, and other markers. Each had there downfalls, for the price and the features I selected the Slg Ul. In the 2009 model year I found it to be the best inexpensive marker on the marker for my preferences. Remember you may have different preferences then me... question everything and make an informed decision for yourself.

I used this marker without fail for over a year, never replaced any O-rings. I would clean an lube the Slg each time I used it. In the fall of 2010 It finally had to have the o-rings replaced. Then the sear started to catch and stick against the side of the body sending into full auto(the stock board has no full auto setting just three round burst, ramping, and semi-auto). I have since sanded down the sear and lubed the sear to prevent it from catching the side of the body. I have also had to clear the bolt with the button on the cap three times in over two years.

The first time I went to a range with the Slg everyone wanted to know what kind of marker it was. It turned heads and performed so well since that I will keep this marker, just like I still have my first Bruizer Pro.

I have since added a Phat drop forward, CP on/off asa, and Ninja macro line fittings. I use this 09 Slg Ul with a Pinokio hopper, .689 Stiffi Money stik 14 inch, and WGP Stratos 68/4500 low pressure tank.

I owned one and borrowed a friends to lend to another friend for a tournament. I had shot about two hoppers through my SLG when I first got it and started having eye problems as well as velocity issues so I pulled out the eyes and throughly cleaned them and cleaned and lubed the bolt. Still had eye problems and the velocity issues where getting worse. I finally got to work ok.... so day of the tourny we played about three games, I had FSDO mad crazy. and my velocity was all over the place on the chrono. Before the 4th match i had to chrono and it was way low, like 220, tried to turn it up, shot a couple times, got a solid 220, 225ish, tried to lower it and got around 210, tried again to turn it up and got 250, 240ish and then, bolt went forward HARD and stuck, took my tank off and tried to push to de-gas button but it was stuck. left it for about 4 hours while I used my back up and took it to pevs, come to find out my breech had a GIANT bur from the factory, and my eyes were bad. Dye wouldnt pay anything. ALso at the tourny, the other gun got called for shooting over the cap, so I lowered it by 4 bps, it then got called for shooting one bps higher than before. board was faulty from the factory.

Proto Paintball 09 SLG This marker is a good deal for what you pay. You get top end workings for low end price. It feels nice in the hands and shoots very accurately.

This is a fantastic marker especially for the price! I picked one up with a whole bunch of ups for a backup/lender and it hasnt let me down yet. The cons I listed are deal breakers, but they are things you probably want to upgrade if you'll be using this as a main gun. At least upgrade the feedneck cuz the stock one isn't a clamping one. Great little gun overall tho, and the fact that you can snag em for around 100 bucks is a steal!

My brother bought slg 07 gun for me, after i got rid of my Ion. That gun worked for awhile, then i sent it in to Dye and they quickly came back and sent me a packaged 09 slg. The gun worked for about 100 shots, then the problems came in. It would keep chopping paint after a few shots, then i would have to completely clean the whole gun out. After that, i tried to fix it, but nothing worked.
