Final Thoughts

It is obvious the LV2 is an upgrade in feature offerings, but that does not mean the LV1.6 is outdated by any means. The LV2 has many slight improvements over the LV1.6, however, it also includes a 2 year warranty! All of this is included with the LV2 for an additional $400+ price tag. If you are someone who constantly tinkers and tunes your marker and have some extra cash, you probably want to get the LV2 as it is far easier to access internals. If you just want a premium shooting experience and don't often tune, then you may want to consider saving some money with the LV1.6. If you plan to have the gun for a long time you may want to consider the LV2 with its longer warranty and future support. At the end of the day, you cannot go wrong with either the LV2 or LV1.6.
