ok, if u sell it, sell and get the pm8, but just so u know its ganna be biased here because u in the eos thread, but anyway i would not trade it for the slg, personaly. the slg to me feels to much like a plastic gun, the trigger is plastic along with the frame, but that is just personal opinion. it all depends on how u play. i like the heavier, more sturdy guns so the eos is a very good gun. if u trade it for anything in the proto line it should the M8

ya the g3s are good guns, but they again are one of those guns i wouldnt personaly use, its a very small gun and doesnt fit me very well. and ya they changed the 09's but i still like the pm8 over the slg

slg's just went down to $200 (heard it first from ******, Mike Phillips FTW) yea slg's are good guns for the price but you gotta find out which you like better. go to a shop and have a look if you can, hold each one and see which feels better to you.

My buddy got an 09 SLG. I think he got a bit of a lemon though because it was screwed up out of the box. I like the board on it, but other than that, I think the EOS is a better gun. Its much smoother shooting gun then the EOS. I just don't care to much for the sear tripper and the bolt on the SLG.

I wouldn't say it's worth it to sell the EOS since you already have it. There's just not that much difference. The only way the SLG would be a good move is if you get one with an UL frame. Other than that, the grip frame is really bulky and it really screws up the feel of the gun. IMO the feel is the most important thing. I was really impressed with the G3s, but I wouldn't really sell one gun to buy another unless I really didn't like my gun and I felt like my performance increased from using another gun.
