Besides no one can tell what 1oz is on a marker. Biggest thing is how balanced it is when fully equipt. I have shot the G6 and did t like it due to its unbalanced feel to the rear of the marker.
The luxe feels heavey all around and I haven't picked up a newer ego since 09 so I have no comparison.
my guess would be that the spring has something to do with the bolt latch
on a side note, I think ill keep my luxes i love the balance and feel of mine and i wont be buying anything that mike has put out. ive owned a pulse as well as a torque those both only lasted maybe a month if that.
