A Thought For BLAST..

1st Love my Marqs.......Best Gun's I've owned.But have a little issue ...My Rapper has seen miles an miles of Play..Woodsball non-stop,bought gun when they 1st came out.Since then I've put in new 4 eyes,New trigger,Locking feed,A Q-D Bolt.All the guts are like new But My Body seen better days..

What should i do...I would like to buy a New Body but 1 is not offered...Granted i can afford of a new gun but why when all inside is new..Why can't i just Buy a new body Kit..

Any thoughts..


P.S Love My Marq

You could call BLAST and ask them to sell you a rapper body but that seems unlikely. Maybe they'll sell you an unanno'd one or something. Call them and see what they say.

Yeah I do see sort of where you're coming from, since it does suck when you take a bad dive onto a rock or something and ding up your body and can't easily get a new one. Though a body probably would cost more than a new anno job (assuming you didn't want something crazy done, just a single color job).

why not strip it down and polish it out, or have it powder coated.

Why not take advantage of the situation and have it milled down a little, it'll need a polish after that anyways, and voil you'll have a special new looking body.
