The Keyboard Company sells them in the US through Amazon

[ame="http://www.amazon.com/Filco-Majestouch-2-Tenkeyless-ASCII-Switch/dp/B004OX7R28/ref=sr_1_5?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1303295885&sr=1-5"]Amazon.com: Filco Majestouch-2 Tenkeyless NKR ASCII with Red Switch: Electronics[/ame]

got mine from them, they sell out quick so if you want one you'll have to be vigilant

will decide later after work, be visiting shops these evening biggrin.gif
That's cool, Reds are a more balanced switch IMO, but I actually think Blacks are ever so slightly better than Reds for gaming smile.gif (I prefer the heavier key for hovering around the actuation point, makes it easier to not bottom-out when key spamming the same key over and over)

Btw the legends on the 6Gv2 keys darkens up after 2 weeks of intensive use and it gets shiny after that too.

If you don't want to buy keycap keyset replacement then might I suggest what I did to my 6Gv2. I posted a thread a month or so ago regarding a cheap alternative to keep your keys from aging. Well just read and look at the pics then you decide.

I don't care about what other people say to what I did, but I still love my keyboard and it still looks brand spanking new.

Another thing to consider is I believe many if not all of the 7G have the small left shift and small backspace keys vs only a small right shift on 6Gv2. If you use WASD for fps gaming, the short left shift can cause some confusion on the 7G.
