That is my thing... there are many things they could do with a standard body, and no one would know. I have shown that there is a size difference, so there has to more to this...

Why waste time milling a gun that you are only using to test components? Jack even said they occasionally use unmilled guns for just such reasons via his recent Q&A

If they come out with something new its going to shock me I really don't see anything they could do to make the Ego 11 better other than the front torpedo and the body screws.

Make it quieter?
Make it more efficient?
Make it lighter?
Make it smoother?

I'm not nit picking, but I am just pointing out that the ego CAN be improved.

Jack said himself that he sees ways he can improve the ego. My bet is on testing new parts.

Because it costs money to mill a marker.
Why mill it just to test some parts that could plausibly fail?

How about we just stick the LPR out the bottom of the ASA, make it look really stupid and call it a day?

Well... it's a poppet lol. Open bolt spools are going to be quieter in every instance I can think of.

I realize that.

"Well... it's a poppet lol. Open bolt spools are going to be quieter in every instance I can think of."

My point is I am happy with all aspects of the Ego11. I just want the 12 to be quieter

No other marker is described as a "cannon " like the ego line has been.

There definitely are improvements to be made in the valve/lpr department. They could also redesign the trigger for better semi play. The pivot point isn't as mechanically advantgous as some other markers. It appears they lengthened the grip of the ego even further. That's good. The shaft⁴ is a great design, but they could play with the porting.

There are definitely improvements to be made.

Maybe the other forums have less drama queens? I've heard dozens of guns that are louder than Egos. That Axe you have for sale in your sig is an example of a gun that is louder than an Ego.

Really?

Because iv shot my axe ....

And then shot my ego11 (2 lpr, 13.5 dwell, 2/7, PLENTY broken in), and assure you the axe is a MUCH softer shot. When my DART kit gets here tomorrow ill PM you if it changes its standing. Not being a fan boy I call it like I see it.

The ego11 is one of the loudest high guns there is. You can't argue this. It is what is. It is also one of the best guns. The fact is the second a company thinks there product cannot be improved is about the same time that company starts to die. Lucky for us the boys at PE are constantly striving to improve their products. Blind and or deaf loyalty with some consumers may be good for repeat sales but the R & D department better not live by it.

Really?

Because I've shot more Egos than most on this site and I've heard plenty of Axes at the field and they are all much louder than an Ego11.

Have you gotten your hearing checked recently?

My buddies' SL74 and Ego 07 are much much much louder than my 11 with DART was.

Egos 08-2010 sounded very similar to the stock 11 though.

I beg to differ on the last part. I've shot an 08, and owned an 09, and three 10's. They all were louder than a stock 11.

Kush bolt was a large failure, no? I heard that the "soft" tips kept cracking off?
Correct me if I'm wrong.

I've always thought that it was photoshopped, after seeing the video though I might be thinking different.

If it truly is an Ego 13, it's awfully ugly.
