There are no threads on it cause everyone knows the borg is better. There are heaps of borgs at my field and someone just got a freestyle and they had a few problems setting it up. Will let you know how it shoots when i get a chance.

hrhr right, the freestyle is really fugly

the freestyle is lighter? this hightower? oh.... however, get the borg - guaranteed bloody fast !

the borg will give you some more interessting abilitys,
* you play like a pro
* girls get horny
* you penis will grow to xxxxl
* you will get a boost in pay if your boss comes to know that you play a borg
* you will win the lottery jackpot - that allows you to buy more borgs. The outcome of this is world domination

The FS actually has a feather shape *milled* into the body IIRC. So it can't fall off or fade like MD jewels

As it is, freestyles are still really really rare, at least for review sake they are. You don't see many people saying much about them at all... except that they are silly fast.

Freestyle holds serious promise...however, the efficiency has been far from stellar so far.

If you need to run of scubas the Borg is the only serious choice betwwen the 2.

I hope the FS gets more efficient.

The FreeStyle has gotten better with efficiency... I've heard you can get 1300-1500 rounds out of a 68-45 with it.. They are also alot cheaper then the Borg.. There is a guy on Ebay offering any color FS with FREESHIPPING for $900.00 They have awesome feed back too

I doubt the 1300-1500rnd's, possible with the new internals I guess but I wouldn't believe it till more than one person with an actual FS told me. And "alot cheaper than the Borg"? You save $80 for a lower gun, that is IMO. The freestyle is fast and small but just like every other ICD product you have to wait for the Revisions to come about so it gets much better overtime.

On Topic: IT IS ALL PERSONAL PREFERENCE, you really want some guys to tell you which gun to get which:
1. Are in the MD forum
2.Unknown to you
3.Easily 80% of them never shot possibly saw an FS in person
