I was dead set on getting an invasion until I was browsing the BST and realized that used ego 09 are going for around 500 dollars. So should I keep with the invasion or get an ego?

Invasion. They're called Ego Killers for a pretty good reason.

Yeah I can post pictures later tonight if I remember.
And here is a picture thread on the nation http://www.pbnation....=934144&page=11

And as far as this or a 2011 G6r, they are going to shoot about the same, except for the invasion is half the price.

Well liking it kicky is silly. Its just an excuse to attempt to emasculate yourself. Same as liking any downside.

Well it can be smooth, but I guess if you want consistency you can unscrew (more) the LPR a little and give it less dwell and I think that will give you kick if you desire that. Even though idk why you wouldnt. Shooting 12.5bps tends to make your barrel rise slightly and when you are aiming at a distance away that slightly can be noticeable.

A used demon is going to be quite a bit more expensive (I think). But I would still choose the invasion because some demons have a lot of troubles.

I love how the Invasion feels, but the trigger is a little funky to my. Feels weird. If it wasn't for the fact that I hate double stacked guns, I'd totally have one.

It's just heavier. I don't know the exact amount but it's alittle obvious just because of how milled down the G6R is.

Just get the invasion. Egos before the ego10 are meh and the geo2 and 2.1 suffered from rollback unless they had the exalt bolt put in them.

Oh plus geos before the geo3 were gas hogs.

But 4 or 5 pods on a 68/4500? To me that's still low for a spool.

Invasion. They're called Ego Killers for a pretty good reason.

Ok I'll give you that the invasion shoots smoother then older egos but I wouldn't consider it an ego killer by a long shot. There's reasons why the invasion is a $500 gun and why people pay as much as they do for egos without battling an eye. For starters the ego has much better stock features than the invasion. As for packaging your getting what you pay for with each. I will say its nice your getting a gat wrap with the invasion. Imo the invasion can't even hang with the ego11 or lv1. I'll give you it is probably the best $500 gun on the market. But to call it an ego killer with what eclipse just dropped into the market is just arrogance. I will say this. I am thinking of picking up an invasion as a backup/loaner gun after I pay off my wedding but it will NEVER replace my lv1.

Btw I mean no disrespect towards you by this. I respect a lot of what you said on this site and actually agree with most of it. I just thought ego killer was a little over the top. Etek killer or axe slayer would of been more appropriate.

Both are phenominal guns, but the ego 9 had it's share of problems such as the plank kit and the eye covers were known to shake themselves loose.

That being said, if you can find a solid ego 9, it is quite a bit slimmer than the invasion and doesn't run into the problems that macroline-less guns encounter. You really can't go wrong with either, but the fact that with the invasion you are getting a brand new marker makes it the slight winner in my book.
