I wanted black, but they didn't have anymore, so I went with silver. Well they had silver, so I went with silver.

Got it on Wednesday, shot it yesterday and today. This thing is amazing.

Ha, that was funny.

I don't see the hype of the Protege. Just looks like a less bulky Defiant2 to me.

Except it feels and shoots better than an Ego could dream of. Its not hype.

It's 500 dollars, it's 2 pounds 3 ounces with everything (barrel, macro, stock ASA, battery). Keep in mind, that's under the weight of the DM8 and PM8, which are both 2 pounds 4 ounces excluding a battery and or macroline. Not that big of a deal, but when Dye/Proto are asking for 1400/750 for those, and you can get this which has equal if not less kick. It gets far over 1500 rounds per 68.45 fill, although I have heard of people running 48.45's and getting 1500 rounds per fill (which is amazing). It's maintenance is ridiculously easy, it has very few parts and o-rings that could and would need replacing, not to mention, B.L.A.S.T. is absolutely amazing.

I don't mean to be a fan boy, but with a price tag of 500 dollars new in box, it really can not be beat.

i had to do a double take when i read that post... IMO it looks nicer than the blue, i guess because on camera you can see the milling better.

Is it like the Closer/Marq frame?

leed

The frame itself is exactly the same as the Marq (except for mounting, of course, as it has a fixed VA). It also takes Marq boards, grips, and triggers.

Are the internals as far as hosing more like a Timmy or Ego?

I've got more questions but I think I'll divide them between the two....

The internals themselves still hold true to an Intimidator.

Taken from PBNation.com

Just as well, the bolt has decreased in Diameter, and the rammer/pin location has moved closer to the poppet.

The internals for the frame/hosing is much closer to an Ego, much cleaner.

Haha, I was joking, we're special though, so we get cool stuff sometimes.

Blows stock out of the water, thing couldn't even fit a Pulse or my Halo feedneck in it. And besides, it's all I had, and it came straight off my Dark Alias. I like it, because I don't like 1/2 inch hopper feednecks, haha.
