GoG eNMEy review

Daft name, but a very nice gun. Had my eNMEy delivered from the US today, so have thrown together a quick video review. Id normally choose to support UK traders and buy from someone local, but impatience got the better of me this time and I ordered from ansgear.com. Shipping added $60 to the price and took 5 days.

For $129.95 you get a fully pneumatic single trigger semi which is ideal as a rental/starter/loaner gun and also perfect for more experienced players who fancy going back to their roots and stepping away from the spray-n-pray, high ROF style of play that has become common.

Its not pretty, its not made from exotic materials, but it does work nicely, is simple to maintain (no more failed solenoids or custom seals, just bog standard o-rings) and dirt cheap. Its a million times better than its competition at the low end (Tippmann 98 and other blow-back semi-autos of that ilk).

I witter along in the video about it being a modern Automag which is what it reminds me of most, as an elegant, single trigger blow-forward marker (although obviously mags are sear-trippers, something I dont make clear in the video), despite being predominantly plastic rather than stainless.

Anyway, enough words, on with the video:

That stinks that it doesnt come in a hard case. I would have thought it would come in a case similar to the envy/extcy/g1. But then again this is a lower end gun.... Looks like the same packaging as the old vibe haha

Thanks for the vid,like your comparison to an Automag,1st thing I thought when I shot my Deathwish/Yoda mech Ion conversion.Most bang for the buck IMHO,should rule the rental/beginer market for years to come

it is the same box, even has the smart parts logos all over




I love mine so far though, the macroline had red loctite on though so when I went to put a on/off on it I had to bust out the torch(yes its macroline wrapped in a cloth sheath most people think its steel hose)

also no lube included is a

I was debating about getting an enmey for quite some time now, but your review has convinced at last to get one. Thanks!

When I ran a loaner from our Valken rep, it was all stock with the angled ASA and everything and to be honest it wasn't too shabby with a 48/4500 on it. Would I have rather had a on/off and straight tank orientation? Yeah but it wasn't horrible stock either. Definitely usable.

Just got mine in the other day, threw my POPs on it, this thing is sweet. I like the length of the stock barrel on it.
