Extcy, for the money, is a much better value. To get an envy to peform the same and to have the same functions as the extcy would cost mlre than just getting the extcy stock.

Well between a regular envy, and an extcy, the extcy is a better gun, and worth the price differences.

Between an envy Blackheart and am extcy, it's a little more of a toss up. The extcy has an on/off asa, and a different trigger. I believe the envy Blackheart is about $20 or so cheaper. But the extcy is still a little more for your money, since it would cost more than the extcy costs to get it on the same level across the board.

With both guns, Blackheart or not, you are getting the same regulator and bolt engine, and clamping feednecks. They will shoot pretty much identically.

Are you saying that a eNVy with a blackheart is the same quality of marker as a stock eXTCy?

I own both the Extcy and the Envy and both are excellent markers for rec play or beginner tournaments, however both will begin to loose performance when shooting above 11 BPS.
  • Both are gentle on paint, even fragile tournament grade paint (I have never had a barrel break with either when using quality paint)
  • Both have the same efficiency, around 6 pods and a hopper with a 68/45.
  • Both have nice programming and are easy to program, however the edge goes to the Extcy because you can program it without dis-assembly and has more features.
  • Both are very reliable and easily maintained.
  • Both have horrible battery life, but the Envy is slightly better.
  • Both stock barrels are just OK but the Extcy barrel performs a little better and is longer.
  • The Extcy has the shorter feed-neck which is a plus over the Envy, however both are not tool-less.
  • The Extcy has a on/off ASA, which is of poor quality and so really is not an advantage over the Envy (The tank will screw in and out easily under pressure on the Envy)
  • The Extcy has eyes so if your using a shake and shoot loader a plus over the Envy, however not a plus if your using a good force feed loader.
  • The Envy has the the better trigger and larger trigger frame so a plus over the Extcy.
So that being said I personally prefer to play with the Envy, mostly due to the better feel of the trigger to me (Also I use a good loader and paint, so the eye's are not necessary for me and also I have an upgraded freak barrel kit, so the short stock barrel is not an issue for me)
But if you have and shake and shoot loader and don't want to buy an aftermarket barrel than buy an Extcy.

I'm assuming that you are looking at these because your on a budget, but if your not and have a little more to spend look into a Valken Proton or Empire Axe.

Good Luck and hope this helps

Sorry I rushed that post cause I was taking a shit and I realized my phone was on vibrate, so I threw it down on the floor in case it vibrates unexpectedly and I drop it into my post-Taco Bell toilet.

(sig if you do so please)

But what I meant, was that the vibe blackheart was the same price as the extcy. I was using that to back my point that just getting a stock extcy is much better.

The Extcy has a longer barrel, better trigger, better feedneck, an on/off asa and looks better all for only $20 more then the Envy BH.
That is 100% worth it IMO
