09 Ego Teardown

Broke down an 09 Ego to see what makes her tick.

Will update with full solenoid breakdown later on. Couldn't justify going that far today.

Full setup:



Time for a cleaning:



Easily removable components:



Frame and Internals:



Solenoid on gun:



Solenoid:



Low Pressure Regulator:



High Pressure Regulator:



Notes:

-The "button" pad or metal buttons on previous Ego models have been incoporated into the frame itself, between the frame and the back rubber control panel, so no more lost buttons or pads!

-Solenoid will require some small picks/tools in order to breakdown. Will post full breakdown at a later date

-The top of the HPR piston is the bleed system to dump that extra shot after degassing:

I'm wondering how the barrel compares to the SL barrels, if they made it lighter, and if the new tip will work with the older (07/08) backs.
