I modified it to fit my X1 Euro because I didn't like the meat shelf from the F1 mainframe poking out. After cutting and welding the Intex II no shelf frame, it fits perfect and has very little protruding out the bottom making it easier to stand the pack straight up and down, I would highly recommend this to anyone needing more support in the pack than what the gossomer plate provides. This is by far my most favorite pack for archery season and day hiking!
I was given a G2 Gunslinger and it did not have a frame. I ordered the no shelf Intex II frame for this pack and it made the pack way more usable. The frame allows you to tighten up the pack where all of the gear is held closely to the frame and the load is carried better than with not having the frame. I have another G2 with the shelf frame. I am not sure at this time if I like one more than the other. You cannot go wrong with either frame.
Bought the G II over a decade ago. Use it for hunting deer and turkey. Light duty. Lately, however, I’ve needed it for 40-45 lb of stuff. The frame completely changes the functionality and versatility of the bag. If you get a G II then automatically add the frame to the cart. A must have.
I have a 10 year old gunslinger and I was worried it might not work, but it works like a dream - no issues. Definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a little .ore support in the pack.
