He might mean an DP F7 with an F8 board which is the precursor to the FX.

If it is an F7, 180 with a tank is about what I would value one at now. I want to say I sold mine for $200 about 2 years ago without a tank.

What can I replace tri-flow with to put on my tank threads?


Dow 33 or any grease lube works fine on tank threads.

Realist, what happened with the G4 man? It shot great when I sold it to you.

Oh it shot great, at first but of course the whole bolt stick thing set in and I went through like 10 different types of lube b4 it wouldn't stick but really that was it. I just need something that is 100% ready to go ya know an I'm looking to sort of upgrade as well so there's that...other than the bolt stick it was fine though


Did you adjust the ABS dwell at all? The 4 setting apparently disables the ABS function, which is totally counter intuitive. I luckily never had any severe bolt stick issues with it.

If you are looking at an Axe or a Marq though, they are both great guns. I'm pretty sure you would be happy with either.

He's not trolling, he's just saying what every non-PE fanboy is thinking.



Eh, I assumed he was trolling based off of him building an Evil Ehm, which is mechanically very similar to an Ego5. But of course he hates all egos.

This gun is admittedly not "macroless" in any sense of the word other than it not being actual macroline. However, I don't see this as a reason to dismiss the gun as "just another ego" when it clearly is making strides in how poppet valves are activated that I have not seen from any other gun. I'm more interested to see how people copy and improve this lever design than anything else.

Edit:
My bad, didn't realize this macroline issue was such a common sentiment and people were so passionate over something that doesn't personally bother me at all.



Explain to me how an 05 ego is similar to an evil ehm !!!! Only thang I see is they are both popits

And macro line dusnt bother me eather I just think it was half assed and one of the ugliest piles of poo iv ever seen


Panda actually covers it pretty nicely throughout this thread. (Thread Link) Although I seem to have upset him with my MLP unicorn joke, which was unintended.

I like the Evil Ehm, but I also like the Ego5. They both shoot great, although the Ehm does shoot better. I understand AKA has a legendary reputation and that people get very defensive about their brands. So, I apologize if I've stepped on some toes, but there isn't enough difference between the two to justify the hate on the Ego5 when it has its very roots in what you are building.

Aesthetically, the LV1 isn't the prettiest gun by far, but if it shoots like a dream because of what is inside, then I don't care about the outside. It is the same reason you would probably prefer to shoot an unmilled Ehm over anything else, because of what's inside the gun.
