Wait, what's the question here?

*Edit* Nevermind, you edited it to actually form a question.

I think he's asking if the gun he aquired from his friend is good. I don't know how to answer that because i have never owned that gun and don't know anything about it, but maybe someone else on this forum can help you out

The nexus ego is a phenomenal gun and far better than the eXTCy (even though comparison isn't fair.)

Nexus Egos are some of the nicest of the Private Label Milled Ego 6s.

Can you post pictures when you get it?

Make sure to take GREAT care of the gun.

Do you know about lubricants?

the extcy retailed for about $300 new.

the ego retailed for $1,200 new.

the ego is a tad bit nicer

but make sure you read the manual and learn how to take care of it. if your friends buying it used and it doesnt come with one, make sure to download it from planet eclipse website.

seriously, it can have some expensive parts to replace if you don't. but ego's are one of the most reliable guns out there. usually all they need is a wipe down after play and a little paintball specific oil on the ram every couple of cases of paint.

Be sure to download and read the manual before touching anything on the marker.

Any ego is far better than any GOG gun.

That said, GOG guns are good beginner/entry level markers, and Just because you have an ego does not mean you will do well on the field, 99.9999% is the player.

I never said you are going to be a better player because you have an ego, I answered his question about which gun is better: the ego or gog eXTCy. And you are right about it being the player that makes the gun, but having an ego over an eXTCy will definitely help somewhat with your performance out on the field.
