Which is better in what way? LNIB stock etha with less than a case through it, or a Droid with gold bolt?

Droid is the older version of the clone so 1000 dollar gun brand new or a 350 dollar gun brand new. You decide which one is better.
Moo.

Never shot a Clone, shit, I have the only Macdev gun I've ever seen at my field... But of pics and vids I've seen, the bolt engine is nearly identical. The clone just seems like a lighter version, with a better feedneck and board. and the Droid uses a set screw in the bolt, the clone doesn't. Couple of my friends have bought Ethas, and while they feel good in the hands, and have a nice trigger (like any PE gun), the shot kinda sucks imo. With my droid, there's barely any barrel rise, mostly just vibration from the bolt reciprocating, but otherwise SUPER smooth. Not the quietest spool, but its definitely efficient.

Boatloads better than the Etha, considering the Etha is a poppet.

I bought my droid for $340 shipped. BUT most people are selling theres around 400-450. If they want the etha, I'd see if you can get them to add a bit, just cause.

Cooky, better feed the wolf tonight. You can expect drg to be at your doorstep tomorrow with a bat.

Btw, looking at this thread, near everyone recommends droid...he goes out within the same hour of starting the thread, and buys an etha. I'm just imagining in my head a BITCH PLEASE meme. :rolleyes:

But the Ego 11 is shiny. :(

Dosent the Ego 11 only come in dust colours?

I bought the etha just over 3 days ago, and like all the guns I own, they go up for trade as soon as I am done testing it.
Think I might just take the deal, the droid is a amazing color scheme, and just need cooler gripa.

I can't stand Macdev triggers. That is the only thing that I don't like. If you play PSP or what not, it'll be fine.

Go for it, droids shoot great.
