Cons: Quality Issues, Poor Serice
I was very excited about getting this Marker. I received NIB and it leaked from everywhere. I looked at the basics and couldn’t fix the problem so I sent it into Blast. Turns out there were known issues with the first few batches of these. After two weeks on not even working on it I called them and asked what the status is. They told me it was next in line. I asked them if they've even touched it yet and the reply was "nope" and they hung up the phone. They went on to blame everyone else but them and didn’t mention the fact that the Vice and Protégé had quality issue's from the factory. They blamed it on the fact that the gun was engraved and stated that everything had to be taken apart when engraving. This is untrue, the board and the grips need to be removed, nothing else. The gun was magically finished the same day I called and I received it back very promptly and I appreciated that. I Aired up the gun and it shot fine and I saw the list of items they replaced and was shocked that there were that many issues with a brand new gun. Disgusted with the service I received and the deflection of the known issue by their "Sales Director" the gun is gone and I will never own another one.

In Blasts defense, besides the known issues with the Vice and Protégé they have very good markers and I've heard their support was great. I just happen to get a lemon gun and a tech that must have had an off day. The whole experience has left a sour taste in my mouth. If you have issues, Blast will fix them. I wish I had a better experience, but that’s what I get for switching guns when mine has been nothing but awesome for me.

Once I decided to ditch the stock barrel the gun was on target and consistant over the crono every time. Then I put on a BL gear drive on/off and I went ahead and put in the 4eye system and now I cant think of a thing I would want more out of a marker. These guns are awesome. And to top it off these things are one of the quietest guns out there and they will retain their value better then most because BL doesnt put out a marker every year.

Currently own my Vice and its by far the most reliable piece of hardware ive owned to date. Occationally throw some lube on the ram and gas the thing up. Shoots 12.5 all day with 0 issues. Uncapped semi is very nice with the Stock Tadao. Looks pretty good but there are better looking guns out.


Overall BEST value for a competitive paintball marker today....no doubt.

I bought my Vice brand new a while ago not long after they came out for $615.

First Impressions:
When I first opened up the box, I was surprised at just how little came with the gun for something costing as much as it did. The box consisted of the gun, a 1-piece barrel (also surprising), and 1 piece of foam for packaging. Not only was there not a manual that came with it, but at the time, there was no manual in existence for the Vice. The asa does not have an on/off and the trigger is mediocre IMO. It is, however, very light, attractive, and fairly comfortable. Once I aired it up, I was further disappointed. It had a massive leak preventing the gun from cycling, and the eyes did not work. This was very irritating considering this was a brand new gun. After sending it back to BL, however (which was painful process; it took them over 3 weeks to respond to me by phone/email, but got the gun back to me fairly quickly), it came back a different gun.

Performance:
Most of my bad feelings towards the gun were put aside once I started shooting it. It was the quietest and smoothest poppit valve marker I had shot at the time (more so than 08 and older Egos, pre-Magno'd A1s, etc.) . In addition, the efficiency was fantastic (close to a case on a 68/45). Consistency was pretty good for a fairly new gun, at about +/- 5-7 fps.

Conclusion
Despite what I first thought when I received it, the Vice ended up being on of my favorite gun's I have owned. I give the appearance a 4 because it does look very nice, there are certainly other guns I like better in that aspect (though this is purely opinion). I give performance a 5 simply because it was one of the best performing guns I've ever used. I give reliability a 4 only because of the initial issues I had with it; I never had any other problems with it. I give value a 3, for 2 reasons. First, even though its performance-per-dollar ratio is one of the best on the market, not having an on/off asa, better barrel/trigger, and manual was surprising. In addition, the problems I had with mine would suggest that the BL quality control is mediocre (although that opinion was influenced partially from hearing bad things about their QC beforehand). Overall though, it's a great gun. Don't hesitate to try one out for yourself.
