A Steal on a Brand New Ego

I just got my new 06 gun metal Ego for just under $905! I'm really stoked about it and happy to be a part of the Ego crew. Now I just need familiarize myself with this gun, hehe.

PM me if you want to find out exactly where I got it from, considering I can't list it in my post via forum regulations.

$900 isn't a great price...

It's better than the regular price. If it is brand new that is. Without a sponsership discount that is good i guess. I would of just spent the extra bit of dough and bought a 07.

3: I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure this is spam...

It's a brand new 06 Ego. It was the cheapest I found online. I thought I was getting a pretty good deal. Any suggestions on how I could have done better?

Oh and yeah, that's a R6 in my avatar.

Have a sponser which gives you discounts on guns. Buy used. I don't really know any websites that have it cheaper than that though. I don't know how he didn't see the r6 logo over the light.

Sadly, there aren't too many local shops in my area. I wasn't aware that shops would actually sell these guns for cost now. I've been out of the entire paintball scene for too long I guess.

I'll be shooting this gun soon once I get my new tank this Tuesday. I was wondering if there was any particular paint that was troublesome with the stock 06 Ego barrels.

From what I've been reading, it seems I can shoot just about any paint but I wanted to get a confirmation on whether there were any particular paintballs that I should just completely avoid shooting? Thanks.

Most paint works fine with the stock barrel, as long as it's fresh and not deformed and ****.

What kind of consistency are you guys getting? I was roughly getting +/- 10 bps difference when I was tuning it a bit yesterday. I'm thinking it should be able to be tuned down to +/- 5 bps or so right?

Just keep it lubed and keep shooting. It will settle down after a few cases.
