You'll need to post the comparisons of every piece of gear in order to truly compare them.

Sure, this piece you've cherry-picked specifically may have a +2 stat boost and +3 endurance boost over the other piece, but who's to say there isn't another piece in that set of gear that has a -2 stat boost and a -3 endurance boost to balance it out?

You can't compare them on one piece of gear, sorry.

Actually, them all should be equivalent to make mix and matching possible.

The pieces are moddable, compensating the lack of something in one mod in another mod doesn't cut it.

Actually I think you can. The armors fully mod able and if you want BiS you almost always have to remod it. If they balanced out this missing 2 or 3 stat levels in other mods that would be worse the other way because mods or enhancements can end up in just about every slot magnifying the problem.

This is clearly a mistake if it's like this in game, hopefully it's corrected.

Left hand, meet Right hand.
All warfare is based on deception • If his forces are united, separate them • If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near • A leader leads by example not by force

They might be, in a perfect world for OCD's sake, but since you'd never really be mixing and matching Aim and Willpower, I'm not sure it really matters.

The only case this may ever come into play at the current time is in outfitting HK-51 with a set of EWH gear, since HK can use both Cunning and Aim.

Wow, do we actually play the same game?
ALL Elite-Warhero Armorings got +39 primary stats / +39 Endurance / +50 Expertise. And since Hilts/Barrels are the armorings weapon-wise it's nothing else but comparable. If you talk about "cherry-picked" mods you either aren't level 50 yet or haven't been thinking about gearing/modding at all.

It's simply like someone said above:

Prior to 1.5 the Elite-Warhero Weapons already existed and had the +37 Primary / +36 Endurance / +50 Expertise stats. BW considered them too low and "improved them slightly" to +39 / +39 / +50 but simply forgot the hilts.
