...Yes, I did. Traded my Dynasty Shocker for a new gun. I got one HELL of a deal on it so I couldn't refuse. Basically, I paid $470 for the Dynasty, and I traded it for a 05 Ego with an Empire barrel kit, M7 Tadao board and Hybrid grips, PLUS $75. In essence, I paid $395 for this gun. The only thing wrong with it is that its missing 2 of the buttons on the grip frame. The middle button turns on and off the gun, the only time I need another button is to turn the eyes off, in which I'd be at home for that and I just use a pencil to do that. I'm gonna try to get some buttons though.

Stats:
05 Platinum Ego with Black parts
M7 Tadao board, blue LED
Hybrid Contract Killer grips
Cut stock bolt
Empire Barrel kit
Black Out Screw kit

Future plans:
NDz Roller Trigger
New Hybrid Grips that match better
Lucky AAV

This looks like the one I'll keep. I've wanted an Ego for awhile, and now I've got one. This gun is everything I want in a marker. Its light, fast and effecient.

Without further ado, pictures:

The guy I traded with REALLY REALLY wanted a black Dynasty Shocker, so I lucked out. He offered it straight up like 2 weeks ago, but I passed and he came back with the offer I took. He said he'd add $50-75 or maybe more, but with the deal I got I took the $75 and didn't ask for more. I'm not too greedy. GL with your trade.

Maybe I'll make the macro match :)

Its the only piece of macro I had that would fit. I flipped the rail around when I got it. I have long monkey arms.

Lol, I know how you feel.. I have a Smart Parts S-rail flipped backwards and I use a 68/45 and I still feel like it's too short sometimes.. Lol..

I had a flipped S-rail on my Shocker with a 45/45. It was decent. I would of prefered a 68/45 but I like the 45/45 weight.

Whatever color it will be, it'll be dust, don't wanna pay to get it polished.

PrecisionPB.com will be doing the anno. I want something that will stand out for sure, but different from most other things. I know it'll be impossible to be completely unique, but I'll try. Drew stole my doo doo brown/piss yellow idea.

One of Will's 05 Ego's is purple/green fade. I dunno about getting purple. Maybe though.

I think the colors are hot just the way they are, maybe change the grips, and think of all that money you will be saving that you could be buying paint with.

Its about time. Welcome to the club buddy. I know you'll love it and I would bet you keep this longer than most your guns.

HA. How'd I guess that you'd trade your Dynasty? $.01 says that he trades it within the next 2 months (gotta give him some credit so I don't lose lmao!). Very nice though! :waytogo:

Change in plans, no more anno or C-lever feedneck and Star Reg. I've heard the Star reg isn't an improvement over stock, and the C-lever just isn't necessary. I'm just gonna get new grips and trigger for now, and maybe a AAV.

You should get an AKA 2-Liter+ Reg.. I have one on my ION and I couldn't be happier.. It is awesome.. I get 280,281,280,281,281,281 almost everytime I go to the chrono.. It has SUPER fast recharge too.. The guage doesn't move but like 5 PSI, and only for a millisecond or two..

I don't know how they would look on an EGO, But.. They only come in Black..

But, If you must have a matching color, CP's are nice too.. Lol..

Shens, he has had some great guns, just remains unhappy... He wont be happy until he gets a Borg. :p

IMO 2 liters are ugly as sin. And who cares about how fast they recharge if it is faster then he needs? A CP is a great reg I think he has owned them before, and like you said, it looks better and when you have somthing as nice as that, looks are important too.
