Buying 07 ego

OK so I'm making the jump from autococker to eclipse i had a karni and now I'm getting an 07 ego. What do I need to know about the ego and is an 07 ego a good buy for someone who has never owned an ego? Would it be better to buy from a pro shop or another online site? What upgrades should I look into if any need to be added, I'm guessing the gun will be sick right out of the box! also I have a pulse should I locate the RF chip and install it or would that be overkill? my 1st marker was an A5 then a Karni will I be OK with the ego maintenance wise? I here the egos are built like tanks also I'm hoping that is true!

the only thing you need to worry about it making a lot of money to buy paint....egos are built like tanks...they will never let you down if you take care of them....they are the easiest guns in the world to do maitenance to...all you have to do is put a few drops of oil on the rammer and your done

If you can handle a karni, you will think the ego is a breeze.

Only thing you need for the ego is paint. There is no real 'upgrade' for the '07.

So you can just drop oil into the rammer without taking it out?

please tell me that ^ was a joke. im assuming it is

and ya the regs need cleaning and lubing (like any other marker) and the rammer need a couple drops of oil. then your good to go.

and the barrel is reverse threaded, so to split the 2 pieces, think like you're screwing the tip into the back, thats how to get it off. i tried the other way, got it super tight that way, then when i found out it was reverse threaded, i had a reallyt hard time sepparating the pieces.

not just yet, but they are working onn it. but egos are the easiest markers to work on if you take care of it. after buyiing one, all upgrades are personal preference, but imo, save your money for paint and play. gl.

yes because the RF works with the ego7

You need to worry about when you get to the field everyone will try to lick it, take it, shoot it, etc

You don't really need the pulse, unless you're gonna shoot out a velocity or empire b or something, do you really need to be doing 27bps (I mean, if you can do that semi go for it but save money on paint)..

Easy gun to take care of, I had a small problem with the hosing out of the box but other than that...


You'll get the occasional leak or tw0z but they're decently easy to take care of
