This is my next gun as of right now. I have been wanting to go with a two finger for a while now. I am still looking for best price and researching other makes as well. I thought I would share my .02 cents.

Yeah I noticed just lately that the LX80 has adopted the now popular pistol grip style....my main gripe w/the older LX80s was hit and miss quality. One would last for 6mos to a year no problems and the next would spit out of the box...

I'm going to pick up one or two different guns to compare but mine's still doing fine, the other SG20 has a rebuild kit waiting to go in (can't seem to get the 'seat/diffuser' seperated) and I just haven't taken the time to get anything else yet. I'm going to sample some of the better guns at SW and the other local paint stores this week though...

I'm inquiring about that Tritech gun right now. It appears to be even lighter than mine (15oz vs the SG20 1.4lbs)...

Update! I just received my new LX80 platinum.Ended up paying 129.00 for it. I have yet to use it, but I do like the way it feels having more than a thumb gripping the handle.

I pulled out my SG2 the other day to clean and rebuild. I forgot how good this gun felt in my hands. The trigger is closer to the handle and it was lighter and shorter than my LX80. Hands down a better gun than my 80. My only complaint about my SG is the 2 pc diffuser/housing system. I like the Titan's simplicity when rebuilding.

Mr fixit, any idea how the 360's trigger is compared to the LX80 or any other popular guns? I find most mainstream guns a little on the stiff side and now that my hands/wrists are starting to bother me, I'm trying to find the lightest and easiest to use guns. My SG20 is much lighter than the LX80 and takes very little effort to squeeze vs the LX80. I don't want to be squeezing a bear trap all day long....
