Sl8r

I know they are no longer in run, and i know they are disappearing fast, so do you think it'll be at all possible for me to buy one NIB unused around christmas time, or do you think they are going to be gone from all online retailers before then?

Probably gone but check your local proshop. They might have a few laying around.

This is the best time of year to buy stuff.

People are looking to get rid of stuff in time for the new run of items released at Cup.

true
but i know alot of people are stingy from watching trademygun.com and wont include the barrel kit. Thanks for the help, and i would check my local proshop but the sucky part of being a your dad being stationed overseas is if you do have a proshop the prices are in euro and Sl8rs high price in euro does not mix well, thanks for your help ill guess a used sl8r is better then no sl8r

I've seen a few online places still selling them new, but they want the same price they originally came out at (1795 IIRC). After cup the price may go down, but they will get bought up quickly.

selling a SL without the barrel kit never made any sense to me. They are annoed to match that specific SL.

What I don't get about the Sl8r is why they made the trigger guard so large that you can't wrap your fingers around the reg like on the other Ego's. It makes it more like an Etek and definitely makes it less comfortable imo. Anyone else feel the same way?

As a Sl8r owner, I just wrap my finger INTO the huge trigger guard. Even with the fingers of my other hand in there, there is more space for my trigger fingers than on my Ego8.

i'd list the places but i don't want everyone going online, and buying all of them

and from what i see there is plenty instock..and i am happy for the time being

im pretty sure im safe for now b/c with an exception of a few individuals i think most people are waiting till cup to buy an ego...which means sl8r's will be ok for a little while

I think it was more like 50 a week. I think the exact numbers turned out to be like 1500-2000 total I believe.
