quality and reliability

i've never owned a bob long gun

the marq seems to be like one of the best guns performance-wise.
but i ear mixed things about reliability. some say they can't get their marq to stop leaking.

is this common?

and hows the quality control with bl guns?

also, is the "engine" really that hard to get out?

marq's can do 10 cases without being opened up, and ALOT more if you don't care about the absolute best performance. i've seen people go 25 cases without opening their guns. none of my marqs have EVER not worked on game day, which i cannot say about any other guns i've ever owned.

I have not had any problems with my marq as of yet. Engine isn't hard to get out. With proper maintenance and care, a Marq is real reliable.

i just noticed something
on the reviews, most of the marq reliability ratings are below 5 stars.
is that mainly because its very different than the average gun?


i'm still leaning heavily towards a marq

I find my marq chops orings when you put the engine in. They catch on on the grove when you put it in.

Put him in slowly into her and you don't rip anything. Don't ram him in to her or else you'll rip her good.

The bolt assembly is pretty easy. You either disconnect the ram or thread it off, twist the can looking thing, and unscrew 3 set screws on the back cap area. From there, it's pretty straight forward.

The marq platform is kick ***.

Any gun will have problems if you don't maintain it properly and use the recommended lubricants. Bob recommends Dow 55 because it makes the o-rings swell and seal so much better than Dow33. I'd be willing to bet all the guys who reviewed the marker were using 33. 33 will do the job, but you will have problems eventually. So use the correct lubricant and you will be problem free. Making sure all of your o-rings are intact are probably the biggest cause of leaks. If you change your o-rings out on a schedule and clean/lube everything when you do, your Marq will be the best shooting, most reliable gun on the field. You gotta put love into your Marq before it can give it back.

edit**
I went through and read all of the reviews here on pbnation about the Marq6,7,Rapper and every one but one guy knocked reliability down a notch or two only because they said Maintenance was a pain. The one guy who knocked it for issues out of the box said the problems were fixed with a few simple procedures and it shoots great now. Maintenance affects reliability only if you don't do one, obviously it becomes less and less of the other.
