I bought this beauty recently (Dec/2013) and i got it at and ansgear sale offer, so i got a very good deal for it. It shoots incredibly smooth and quiet. It has an impresively aggresive and gorgeous appereance and it shoots as accurate as it can be. But the only thing is that is too delicate so it requieres maintenance after every game. Those who do not like to disarm and/or lubircate this baby after every gameplay, i would not recomend it.

Got an amazing deal on an almost new vapor and used it for a few practices and one MSXL race event. I must say that this is a great shooter.

Good: Soft shot, reliable, accurate, quiet. I loved the milling and anno work. Everything is top notch, and should be for a gun of this price. You get a very nice barrel kit and two triggers. As long as you know how to complete routine maintenance (like any other spool) the Vapor will be 100% reliable.

My problems with it: May have just been my vapor, but it didn't like the brittle tourney grade paint. I had problems with paint breaking in the gun on a few occasions, when others were shooting it fine. It wasn't just my Vapor either, there were a few with this problem. For a gun of this price I would expect it to shoot the super brittle stuff well. Ultimately this is why I got rid of it.

Another thing about the Vapor that I didn't personally like was the number of different settings on the board. It felt like many of the settings shouldn't be touched and could have been left off the board. However, I understand some people like that amount of customization, and this doesn't effect my rating of the gun in any way.

Overall the Vapor is a very nice paintball marker. I enjoyed shooting it and think that machine has a top notch product. They have spared no expense. That being said, I believe the MAP for this marker is a little high, even with the barrel kit and two triggers. If my marker liked tourney grade paint I would still be shooting it. It may be that the gun is new and all the kinks haven't been worked out yet. Perhaps Machine (or Promod) will come up with some killer settings that will solve this problem. If so I may get another Vapor in the future.

Machine Paintball Vapor I do like this gun a lot, when it works. It has a lot of maintenance required, and the trigger is a little firm for my liking. The board is super easy to work with and it is very easy to tune.

Not for new ballers there are many settings that need to be changed before you can start gunning down fluxes. Follow promod 's tuning guide for details on that. Should be on the vapor q and a forum.

cons- anno very faded in spots

The tolerances on the gun are poor. oring fitment has to be hand done and the gun chews orings for breakfast.

All problems for this gun come from a poor board logic and poor tolerances of the gun. The ergonomics are great. the bolt system in regards to design and style are nice, but what is convenience if the gun doesn't work.

When it shoots its accurate , smooth and , quiet. But it works 10 percent of the time. This was the case for every gun on our team. We literally switched guns mid tournament it was so bad.
