In Topic: Place to buy a Phantom!

Wow thanks guys.
The only reason I want another place to go with besides Mike is that his prices are a little higher than other peoples...

Yup. Just like Lapco. They do that to let their dealers make a buck.

In Topic: DYE's trouble with the SLG

28 March 2010 - 12:42 AM

I'm the source of SL 09's info on the SLG problems.. Incidentally, I feel the SLG is a really great gun, for the most part.

That said, we've stopped suggesting the SLG as a low-end electro because our local store has had a run of really, really bad luck with them. Basically, the body and grip frame just aren't fitting together properly. This is resulting in cracks in the body. It's pretty easy to see the problem, you can see light between the body and grip on the gun.

A number of these guns have been returned to Dye for service, and they've been returned either unfixed, broke again shortly after the fix, or were outright replaced. The replaced ones broke again.

The store finally tried to just return the last one for credit, but Dye sent it back in disgraceful condition.

I don't know if this is a wider problem, or just a run of bad luck from one store. All I can say is that I wouldn't suggest a new SLG to anyone until I was confident the problem is solved.

whitewolfairsmithing.com is well priced. takes hella long to get to you, like 5 weeks minimum.

WWA has a reputation for never actually shipping at all once he has your money. If he does, it'll be very slow.

It was the Shocker before smart parts bought the design. I think there is a video online of comparing it to old school shockers.

To clarify a bit:

It was the Shocker after the company that actually designed it split from Smart Parts and went out to try to sell it on their own, but before Smart Parts sued them out of existence and bought the design from the bankruptcy sale.

hellza expensive but hey you get what you pay for

Uh.. You're getting an aluminum tube with a polished inside that threads into your gun.

How is that different than all of the other aluminum tubes with polished insides that thread into your gun and cost a whole buttload less?

lol, when is the last time you shot a stock tippmann barrel?

there is difference in barrels it just gets to a point where barrels cant get much better

When I bought one of those cheap platinum series. It was pretty great.
