If between those 2 Ego. Vanquish is a completely new platform. Few new products show up without bugs.

The lv1 spend 1395$ on a gun from a company who has had a major success rate already with high end guns, or spend $1500 on a new plant from empire who makes mid range guns I would go with the lv1

LV1 is a new product the lever inside the ego is a new technology that is not proven.

Try to dry fire your LV1 and you will break it.

Maybe LV2 or LV3 will fix the dry fire issue and keep improving the new lever tech of this new ego

I'm not saying is a bad marker, I have shot it and really like it, but so many people keeps saying that this new ego is a proven platform, and I disagree with that.

Dry firing is not an "issue". There is no reason to dry fire your marker. You weren't suppose to dry fire the previous Ego either.

My response to this is pretty much like the guy below... The vanquish is closer to a luxe than the LV1 is to proven ego technology. The ego is more likely to have bugs and the dry fire issue is an example.

I agree. I like the LV1, but I still think it's early to say it's proven.

Soul... Everyone dry fires occasionally. The gun shouldn't self-destruct as a result. If it was really an issue then the logic when eyes are disabled should probably reduce ill-effects of dry firing since they very rarely need to be disabled due to a fault.

I don't dry fire. Even before I read i wasn't supposed to I didn't do it. Not with any of my egos, geos or my timmy.
But my main point is its not an "issue" to fix. There is no need to dry fire so there for no problem that needs be rectified. And I'm not just saying for the LV1 but for any gun.

Man, I don't agree with you one this one. Even I dry fire a few times after I relube my gun as well as some clearing shots when I'm presetting the reg. It's normal for people to dry fire and the gun shouldn't destroy itself or should have a board setting specifically for it.

Yeah I guess both guns are equal in terms if "proven" so get a proven gun lol
And its true if I had $$$$ to buy one I'd probably wait till vanquish v2 or lv2. Like empire did with the Axe asa coming loose and The feedneck breaking and having to take off the battery door to switch modes and now its like v3 and all that stuff is fixed. Vanguard demon same story so both are even in that "proven" field
And also to g1 paintballer girl. Even though empire makes mid range guns look at how successful of a midrange gun it is. The only midrange being shot by many pro teams like infamous Trenton top gun vicious and others. Now now I know it means nothing to a lot of people if a pro team uses x gun but at least we know it can keep up with other hi end markers

Both are newer platforms which I typically stay away from. Yes I know the LV1 is an Ego, but it has lots of changes. Why not consider a Luxe? ......about he same price, as smooth as either above, keeps it's resale value, and great color choices. My 2 cents.

Bad thing about the luxe is if you scratch the reg you can't just replace with grip like lv1 or if your at the field and you forget to charge it you can't replace a battery like lv1. Other reasons but you got the main one.. But yes better color choices.. Ps luxe is also heavier than the lv1. No fan boy here because I love my resurrection lol I think everyone should own one of them, screw electros,lol. Wouldn't nppl **** if a team dominated with a autococker! Awesome...

wow, first I've ever heard of an Ego breaking due to dry-fire.

- Not exactly confidence-inspiring. But then again, the Vanquish (the original, not sure about the 1.5) was a terrible marker.

if the 1.5 fixed the issues over the original, then it should be a decent marker.


It's kind of ugly though, just saying.

Both are at the same resale level right now

I think it is stupid to buy a gun and think about resale. If you are not a store or pawn shop.
