Marq from Action Center Paintball

OK just ordered my Marq 6 from them because of their amazing prices. I was wondering if anyone who has recentally purchased a Marq from them could answer my questions. Did yours come with the pillow bolt, Frenzy 3.0 flashed, LPR Slot and did it come with the Marq barrel or the Assassins?

Big mistake. The price from Boblongdirect.com is the same as action center. The ones from action center have no guarantee as to what it comes with. Mine came with the old software, no LPR slot, and the standard bolt. I ordered mine from there while it was still more expensive direct from BLAST. But now there is zero advantage, and its actually worse to get it from them.



*edit*
I take it back, looks like action center dropped their prices to $400

I highly doubt that the board is flashed or came with a pillow bolt buying from that place. All the marqs sold from boblong direct are upgraded with those specifications. Your marq might be part of the many that have been ordered before the changes were made.

I ordered my Marq from utahpaintballsupply.com which is the sister company to actioncenterpaintball. Instead of getting a Marq 6 they sent me a Marq 7.
My Marq did come with the milled LPR slot, pillow bolt with QD Ram, and just the 12" Assassins. As far as the board I don't know how to check what board I have so I would not be able to say if it is the Frenzy 3.0 Don't really care because this thing shoots plenty fast.

If I were to buy a Marq from action center and it did not come with an updated board / lpr slot, is it possible to send it to bob long to have the board upgraded and the lpr slot added?

first of all 400 hundred for a brand new marq 6 is the best deal u can get on a gun. actioncenters marqs come with a pillow bolt but not the board its free from blast i know they gave it to me for free so just call them and yes mine has a lpr slot and i got mine from actioncenter pb. i some how messed up the pressure in my gun and blew out my bolt. they rebuilt my hpr and engine and the gave a new pillow bolt and a frenzy 3.0 board. i only had to pay for shipping there.

Ordered a Marq 6 from Action Center and I do not suggest doing so. The gun came board un-flashed, did not have a pillow-bolt, and did not have a milled LPR slot. The board or the eyes were either defective because It was impossible to turn the eyes on, called up BLAST and had to send it in the day it came in the mail.

Yeah, it's $300 cheaper than the Rapper now, and they have at least one that that they say comes with the pillow bolt and milled LPR slot for just $50 more.

So I have a marq 6 that is completely stock, no pillow bolt, unflashed board, no LPR slot, assasins barrel, etc. I am the second owner but the person I got it from just bought it new. I'll call Bob Long to find out for sure but I could send it to them and they would upgrade those things for free?

I bought an upgraded one yesterday, with pillow bolt and lpr slot, should be here tomorrow or the next day.

Do you think it will have flashed board?

I just got mine. The barrel was missing, and there was no manual.

I'm still evaluating it to see if everything else is okay.

That stinks. Did you even get a bag of O-rings? I hope they will make good on that barrel. Maybe that's a warranty issue! Cough Cough

How are O-rings a warranty issue?
I think I did, but frankly as soon as I saw the barrel missing, I stopped looking.

is there anything else wrong with the gun besides the barrel and manuel?
the manuel isnt that big of a problem, you can always find one here but the barrel...
try calling them and see if they can send you one or something
