Mars FAQ: read this first!!
Q. If my Mars breaks are there parts to fix it? or can it be fixed?
A. Yes there are parts to fix it. These parts can be found at any of the Authorized Dealers. Also the Mars is under a limited lifetime warrenty from Armotech. If your marker has been broke due to normal use then im sure the dealer will fix it under the warrenty. If it has been broke due to poor use and rough use and could have been avoided by the user or owner then it should not be under the warrenty. As with almost any marker you could ever buy.
Q. What barrel threads are the Mars series markers?
A. The Mars series markers have "Spyder" threads. The stock barrel on the Mars is just as good if not better than many of the "upgrade" barrels already out there.
Q. I heard that the EVO has a plastic trigger frame. Is this true?
A. In the past the EVO did come with a plastic trigger frame. Armotech realized this was a quality issue and decided to discontinue the plastic trigger frame. All new from the factory EVOs will now come with the new metal trigger frame.
Q. Why does my cocking pin keep falling out?
A. If you read the manual on http://www.Armotech.us
under the services area you will read that there are two hex screws in the back of the bolt that must be tightened to the desired point that the pin will not fall out and it will still be easy enough to remove for field stripping.
Q. Are there upgrades for the Mars series?
A. The Mars line of markers come stock with many "upgrade" parts. You may have to upgrade a Spyder or a Pirhanha and spend money after the fact because they do not come with these type pf parts. The Mars comes with a high flow valve which is good for low pressure setups. It comes with a great regulator and comes stock with a small expansion chamber. also comes with a very nice barrel that needs no need for upgrades. The trigger frame already has a hair trigger pull and shoots a fast 13bps. There will be upgrades in the near future for the Mars series. I myself have come out with an upgraded bolt. I am also working on other upgrade parts along with Armotech.
Q. Why does my EVO shoot so slow.. when it says it can shoot 13 bps on the website?
A. This question is also answered in the Owners Manual at http://www.Armotech.us
under the service section. The owners Manual for the Mars is a MUST read for everyone who owns one. The speed or ROF (rate of fire) is determind by the dip switches inside the trigger frame. Both dip swithes in the upward position towards the numbers 1 and 2 are the 13 bps rof settings.
Q. What are the best paintballs for the Mars series?
A. Iv had the best results with the medium to large bore balls. .687-.689 seem to work well. A quality paintball is usually recomended for better results also. you get what you pay for.
Q. Are replacment parts or spare parts easy to find?
A. Yes the Parts Kit can be found at any one of the Armotech dealers. The Parts Kit comes with many of the parts that could eventually need replacing. Spring, Valve Pin, O-rings, ect..
Q. I heard that the Mars series has been discontinued. Is this True?
A. No, this is not true. brand new Mars series markers are still being shipped out everyday. You can order any of the Mar series markers from any one of the authorized dealers on the the http://www.Armotech.net
Q. What is the best hopper for the EVO?
A. Force fed hoppers are going to be te best for any electronic marker. The Halo B is one of the fastest and best made hoppers you can get that is force fed. I currently use a Richoche AK which is a gravity fed agitated hopper. It seems to work well for me. any hopper that can feed arounf 12bps should work fine with the EVO. If you are planning on using full auto a lot and fast paced shooting, then go for the Halo B.
Q. Why wont my hopper fit in the vertical feeder?
A. Most hoppers are made perposly to a bigger size so that the hopper can fit in a veriaty of markers. The EVO and same with other markers you will need to sand down the hopper feed neck to fit into the vertical feeder on the EVO. This is normal for any marker. DO NOT try to force a hopper into the vertical feeder. alays make sure that your marker is uncocked when putting you rhopper on.
Q. Iv heard that Armotechs are crap, what do you think?
A. If Armotechs were so "crappy" then why would people be buying them and not buying just one of them? most of the rumors you hear from others are people who dont even own an Armotech or have never shot one. And the funniest thing most of them probably have not even seen one in person. 99.9% of the time the reason something goes wrong with an Armotech is due to the user themself. Iv seen it over and over.
