You could always upgrade the bolt.
A new bolt could increase efficiency and FPS in your shots.
But a new bolt is not must.
You could also get a new barrel. But that's based purely on personal preference.
Other than those two things, you're pretty much set.

I don't imagine so.
The stock Zick2 works great as it is.

Didn't even notice this was here. Damn, I wouldn't have made a new thread...

Anyway, my questions are:
1) is the SL3 reg much better than a Star? I mean, mine's fine as-is, but I was just wondering.

2) Should I get a Violent SE Kit? I mean, is it worth $40? I've had several other guns with items that are to reduce kick, but never do.

I've got an 06

thanks!

Virtue board will be a waste of money, trigger is preference.

I believe that the stock Ego9 board is superior to the Virtue board.
Violent has a good selection of triggers. Like others have said, it's completely based up personal preference. If you don't like the stock trigger, go for a Violent trigger.

I see no need to upgrade the board.
You could upgrade the bolt to a Hush bolt, Pooty bolt, Juit bolt, Cure3+, etc.
Next, you could upgrade to the Violent SL3 regulator. There's really no need for this, but it could improve your velocity and efficiency.
You could also upgrade to the POPS ASA, but that won't really yield any performance improvements.
Additionally, you could get a new trigger. But, as I said in my previous post, a new trigger is based upon personal preference.
