I've searched the threads and concluded that the only difference between the two is the gr-2 upgrade and maybe the reg? If so, then why has it been sayed that the geo2 internals are not compatable with a geo but will work in the geo+?
Having said that, the Geo2 internals are unlikely to be released as an upgrade for the Geo for a while yet. Not until Planet are on top of the back orders for the Geo2. Right now, they need all the parts they can get to keep up with supply and demand of the new marker.
that from uziel gal in another post. I guess i got confused and thought there was something different between the geo and geo+. Nevermind. Thanks for the replies anyway.
A GEO+ is nothing more than a GEO with the GST as a factory option -- and the feedneck thumbwheel. Yes the + already has the GR2 upgrade but its free for GEO (basic) owners anyway. The regs are the same.
As for the GEO2 bolt ... yes it does in fact fit and and work in the GEO(+)
Looks like this has now all been covered anyway, but just to sum up, the Geo+ is basically a Geo with the ST kit and a thumb adjuster whhel for the feed neck.
All Geo+s will also have the G-R2 kit installed, but then, so do most Geos. The earliest Geos didn't have the G-R2 kit, but were able to get the parts as a free update, so basically, there's no reason at this point for any Geo not to have the G-R2 kit installed.
The Geo2 internals will work in any Geo or Geo+.
If you are considering buying a Geo, and cost is not an issue, then I would strongly recommend the Geo2. You have the new, higher efficiency bolt kit; you have the ST kit functionality; you have the newer barrel design that should also assist with efficiency; you have the new reg that allows use with any type of air system, and which maintains full velocity down to lower input pressures; the new reg is also fully rebuildable, with a reversible and replaceable reg seat seal (no need to replace pistons); you have the new thick to thin grip frame (Ego9 style grips are used); you have the new Ego10 style board, with a larger LCD, new user interface, and USB board compatibility.
