Proto slg opinion.

I recently had an slg. I loved the way it shot but it just wasn't cutting it. So I turned around and made a $70 profit lol.

What should I upgrade on just the gun?
What I have:
Freak Kit
2 Rotors
Clamping feedneck
On/off ultralight Asa

Could someone link me to a video on how to install triggers?
I was going to get a couple of these triggers at only $2 each.

Your links don't work

Very few guns come without clamping feednecks.

but I'm not entirely sure what you're asking.

No need to upgrade a gun like that. Putting $300 worth of upgrades into it won't make it shoot like a $500 gun. Save your money for the field. If there is a different gun you'd like, give us a budget and we can recommend you guns in that price range.

+1 don't upgrade an slg, save that money and upgrade to a better marker.

Well, if you already have 3 guns why don't you let them use one of those?

Cool I have an ego11, Axe, Geo2, Ego07, Etek2, and Etek1. As I said before I wouldn't upgrade an SLG.....if it works properly consider yourself lucky and just do routine maintenance.

None of my liners are upgraded, they are bone stock, but they work.

Then let them use one of those guns??? If not, there is nothing wrong with the slg for your friends as is, so that would be fine for them to use.

if you want to upgrade a slg put paint in the hopper and a tank on the gun and play. don't put money into it if you ever sell it you wont get anything out of it. i would just hand it to them show them how to operate it and send them on the way

before you buy upgrades, you need to play with a gun enough to find out what it is you dont like about it. no sense in throwing upgrades on it after only playing with it a couple times and expecting things to change. play with it, make sure things are adjusted to your likings first, then you can start changing things out to better suit your needs.

If you have $2000 in mid/high end markers and don't know what to buy, spend the money on field time to build your experience. If the SLG is to loan out to friends, leave it as close to stock as possible and keep it clean. There's absolutely no point in dumping money into a gun grossly inferior to all three of your other markers.

I have two slg markers that I bought used and both had issues that don't seem to be something that is fixable. They seem to be great new and work good but when they start to go they just go and I'm selling both for parts.
