Pump Scout's markers

So, here's what I've got pictures of. A lot of the markers I've owned over the years predate digital photography, and are lost to time.

CURRENT
Inception Designs Mod Squad Kryptonite Sniper
Part of the VERY limited run of Mod Squad bodies, I built mine into a Sniper. Most of the functional parts are scavenged from my 2k2 Sniper/Cocker, but eventually other parts will replace them... allowing me to rebuild the 2k2 with the stock WGP parts!


Empire Axe
I was terrified of screwing up my Darq on some field somewhere, and I wanted something current I could run like a rental. This is it, the choice of players worldwide, the Empire Axe. Nothing too spectacular about this one... yet. Standard Axe, Boss bolt. The stock barrel will probably never even get screwed into the gun, since all I use these days is my Resurrection's barrel kit. There's a few ideas about what to do with this one that will make it something special.


Bob Long Darq Marq
This Darq was previously Aaron Tholey's. The story on this is that he'd seen one of the two original "sponge" annodized Darqs at a Warped Sportz location - the sponge Darq that was stolen. He'd liked the pattern so much, he acquired one of his own and had it redone to replicate that scheme. Through several owners, it wound up in my hands. Since then, this has become the first electronic marker I've ever owned that I wouldn't even consider trading or selling. It's just that nice of a marker. Yes, I was screwing around with the hopper for the picture.


2013 Empire Resurrection AutoCocker
I knew as soon as I had one of these in my hands at a CPX/PBN Meet & Greet, I had to have one. It required selling off my beloved DYE Reflex, and a few other items, but I did get a great deal on a very-nearly-new Resurrection. I have not been disappointed. This is truly the gun the AutoCocker should have been all along. The trigger is amazing, the barrel kit is the best I've ever used, and the overall package just works great.


Empire Trracer
The one that retired my much loved SL-68II (see below). This marker was a pre-release field tester that saw use under some camoflauging at local outings. I've enjoyed this pump enough that I'd sold off an S6 I'd picked up. It's great being able to put my red dot sight on a marker again!


Trracer incognito


Tippmann SL-68II
This is the marker that got me into pumps. I'd started out my paintball career with a PMI-3 back before semiautos were reliable, efficient, accurate, or fast. I wanted something that consumed less paint, and would force me to be a better player. So, I took a hundred dollar credit in trade for the PMI-3, added $150 cash (that's right, $250 for this!), and came away with a brand-new SL-68II. I immediately ordered up an Armson barrel through a local buddy who did some work for Pro Team back then, added a red dot sight, and hit the fields. The plain black SL-68II didn't exactly strike my fancy, so I had it bead blasted, polished up the Armson tube, and had a custom color marker before that became trendy. As mentioned above, this marker gave me 20 years of great service, but has been retired from regular use.


Not pictured yet
GZ-1000 pistol, Brass Eagle Talon, pair of JT ER2's, parts bin Spyders that may become a Spimmy someday, anything else I'm forgetting at the moment

Here's some of my past markers that have been sold or traded off.

Bob Long Dragon Intimidator
I'd always wanted a Dragon Timmy, but never got around to getting one. What I did wind up doing over time was picking up this part, that part, and finally coughed up for a project body and frame that needed a handful of parts. I decided that since everyone under the sun had gone the 2k5 route (and I still could with minimal effort on this one), I'd go exactly the opposite way and do a retro Dragon. I remembered seeing Dragons in the magazines back in the day with chrome dualies, chrome trim, Gen2 frames, and such, and I went for it.


DYE Reflex AutoCocker
Ah, my Reflex Cocker. This marker fits me like a glove, and is one of a very few that has never even been considered for trading or selling... until the Resurrection came out. This marker was picked up in a trading frenzy when I was looking to get the heck out of electronic markers (you see above how well THAT worked out!). I'd picked up this and an Eclipse Cocker, both mechanical, both undrilled. I traded off the Eclipse, but held on to the DYE. This marker was one of my go-to markers, as I could always count on it to air up and shoot. Maybe not the fastest marker out there, but she's one of the most consistant I've ever used.


WDP Angel Fly II LCD
My first "serious" electronic marker was an LCD Angel. That goes back to late 2004 or so, and they've held a spot in my heart since then. These were the coolest, nastiest, most serious marker you could get back then. I picked this one up in trade, mostly just to have an Angel back in the fold.


CCM S6 - I figured I should give a modern CCM pump a try, and this was that. There wasn't anything functionally wrong with this one, but I found I wasn't a huge fan of the 86° frame. If it hadn't been for that, I'd likely still have this marker.


CCM J2 - This was a pickup at a price I couldn't pass up. Great pump, although heavier than what I was really looking for in a pump, and the double finger trigger frame wasn't the best for pump work.


2006 PE/Warped Dark Ego - Quite the marker, and my only Ego to date. I'd liked the Dark Egos when I first saw them in PGi, and wanted to give one a try. Virtue Redefined board inside, one of the nicer PE bolts, CP reg. This one was traded off for my Darq shown above.


APS A1 - The newest Angel I ever ended up with. Fly software, CP reg mount and reg, upgraded trigger I can't remember the make on. A good gun, but I didn't think it had the soul my other Angels had.


SP NXT Shocker - You know, folks can say what they want about Shockers, I've found them to be good markers. This had a Virtue board, trigger and feedneck upgrades, and CP air gear.


BL Infamous Intimidator - As reviews had indicated, I tended to cut my hands on the points on the back of the body. Virtue, CP air gear.


WDP A4 Force Fly - A gem of an Angel, straight stock, run with a Redz Peppersticks barrel kit and Shocktech feedneck. The only gripe I really had was that, like my S6, I found the vertical frame uncomfortable.


BL Ironmen Intimidator - A nice example of the type, WAS 2.9, Lasoya trigger guard, Alias trigger. This one was missing one side of the Ironmen jewel, but had both side's Ironmen plates on the upper body.


SP/Warped Dark Shocker - This is one I really miss. Olive Dark Shocker, aftermarket feedneck, Critical trigger, matching Lucky 15 barrel. The only gripe I could have with this was the goofy stock Cricket board.


BL Species Intimidator - My first Timmy, and one that started a real love of Bob's markers. The only thing not standard on my Species was the WAS board. This is one of those guns I wish I could get back.


DYE DM4 - The marker that brought me back to electronics after a hiatus. The only real change on this DM4 was the Tadao chip. I picked this one up, messed around with it a little at home, and traded her for the Species.


WDP A4 Fly - The first marker I had that I considered tournament capable. I picked this up lightly used during a time when I was making pretty darn good money, along with a Lucky 15 set, the Reloader B seen mounted, and the Centerflag tank seen here. I picked up pearl shells for the hopper solely because they'd match the grips on the Angel!


WDP/Warped 2000 Dark Angel LCD - My first "serious" electronic marker, and one I still watch for. I suspect it's long gone, and that's really a shame. This thing was a workhorse, and had the soul of a true private label work of art.

Guns in transition

WGP AutoCocker 2002
This marker was thrown into a trade as "incentive". It needed a few things to get it functional, and that hasn't fully happened yet. I'd toyed with the idea of setting it up as a pump, sending it out to Jim Eaton for Ripper milling (that's not going to happen anymore, sadly) or just getting rid of it entirely, but I've held on to it. Why? For no other reasons than 1-it's always a good idea to have an extra Cocker, and 2-the body is perfect for a milling project I've had in mind for years. Someday it'll happen, and it'll be something to really behold. Then again, it may become the core of something else pretty cool.
This one is currently a parts donor for my Kryptonite, seen in the first post. It will eventually be rebuilt with the stock WGP parts as I replace things on the Kryptonite.

Don't worry, she's got a good home. I do think the seller wound up banned here for something or another, unless I'm thinking of some other deal I've worked.

Added in some of my former markers. Man, that was like a trip down memory lane. I really miss some of those!

As far as I know, the Trracer is still being produced. They run them in batches, though, and there's some strangeness to how they get ordered up and sent out.

Sick collection! I really like the Darq, Dark Ego, Dark Shocker, Species, Dragon and Ironman Timmy's. I really like that A4 Force fly always liked that milling and the orange is sick too! I was the same way when I saw the 06 Dark in a magazine, I had to have it, but was a little disheartened to see it cost almost 2 grand. I picked it up in early 08 for a third of the msrp and still have my Dark after 5 years! I'd love to try out a Darq Marq, and I must own a Species someday! 5 Stars!

Thank you, guys! It's funny, I keep coming around to markers from Warped. Never intended to own an Ego, wound up with the 06 Dark Ego, and that led to a gun I always knew I'd own but didn't know it'd be something really special - the Darq.

I really want a red Darq bad.. I've never shot anything from the Marq platform though, how do they shoot? I know they had a supercharger/profficiency engine out for them, would you say that is necessary? I guess necessary is a lack of better words, would you say it's a worthy upgrade for the money? I'm very interested in getting a Darq, when money allows, but I know nothing of how they work or anything.

My Darq shoots a lot like a well broken in spool. VERY smooth, very quiet. Not so great efficiency-wise... again, like a spool. My understanding is that the supercharger gives you a lot more shots per tank, but you lose some of that smoothness. I haven't really found the need to get the SC engine, partially because I like how she shoots, and partially because I can't carry more than about 7 pods at a time (bad back), so the efficiency isn't a big problem most of the time.

I'll make you a deal - come out to Living Legends 6 and find me around the Mod Squad area, and I'll let you shoot my Darq in the chrony area.

Well I was curious because my field usually only fills up to 3000psi. I usually only shoot a full loader and 3 pods so not too big of a deal there and I understand you can either have a very efficient marker or very smooth with dwell and all. If I can make it out there I would definitely take you up on that. The first day is actually my birthday (May 17th) so maybe I can convince someone to get me there as a birthday present! I've honestly never been to a big game and would love to do so.

Added a new gun, my Resurrection AutoCocker, and moved my long-time go-to DYE Reflex to "formerly owned". Bittersweet, selling off that Reflex, but it had to be done.
