Having just bought one and realizing how heavy it is, how many of you guys troop with the Master Replicas EE-3?
opened the box and picked it up and first thought was "no freakin way".
I'm using my MR, but I can't imagine going for hours with that thing. It must weight 15-25 lbs. If you are doing serious trooping for long periods of time, you probably want to invest in one of the foam replicas.

Have none of you guys been in the military?!! Running around with a heavy weapon all day should be a breeze.
Does this count? Because a sling really helps
In addition to the weight it is pretty awkward to hold and it is not balanced in any way. Also, try it with the gauntlets on .
If I had to troop an MR again I would crew and leave it at home
Just my 2 cents.
Did 20 carrying a M-16, the MR is heavier and unbalanced, gauntlets don't let you cradle the weapon so its all bicep and wrist, great for isometric exercises but not for hours at a time.
Yeah I couldn't believe the weight. I thought the Stormtrooper blaster was heavy but this has got it beat hands down.
I used it tonight for about 20 minutes. One lap, no house stopping, around the block and I had to put it away. It's retardedly unbalanced and wonky feeling, plus heavy as all hell, so my first new investment will be a foam one o' them jammies as soon as I see one pop up in the Cargo Hold or a run gets going.
I did a three hour troop with it...never again. I have a foam one that I use all the time now.
