My current markers: 06 Dark Ego, BL Darq7 and Dragon Timmy.

Hey guys thought I would post up my current markers and some videos of them.


Well the Dragon is sold so I just have my Darq Marq and my Dark Ego again. I made a little shooting video with my Darq7 on uncapped full auto to test out my Pulse RDR!



First up is my beloved 06 Dark, I've owned it for close to 6 years now and will be staying with me for the rest of my balling days and probably after. I liked it so much I didnt want to sell it for a newer Ego, so I updated it as much as possible. It has the following upgrades: Cure4 bolt, PE POPS Asa, .685 Shaft4 16" barrel, Violent SL3 regulator, Violent Scythe trigger, Violent thumb wheel, and Violent blackout screw kit.









Next up is my recently acquired Darq 7. It has the following upgrades: Supercharger engine, frame mod'd for G6R grips, matching Lucky15 with Dark jewels, BL barrels and BL Gear drive. Let me say this is hands down my favorite shooting marker I've owned, very smooth and quiet for a poppet based marker. Not only does it mow faces on the field, it also turns heads off the field! Anyway here is some pictures and video of it.

Awesome collection as always! Too many things to admire...your choice in guns, the time period of your collection (still the best time in paintball in my opinion...there's some cool stuff out now...just can't hold a candle to how amazing everything from 2006-2007 was), and the fact that you own three of the most unique paintball guns ever created...maybe not rare, but all three of these guns have a following! Nothing but good things to say about what you have going on here...oh and once again, thank you for making videos that show semi auto mode...

Yeah I miss those days, paintball seems different. No more actual magazines, NPPL has turned in to a joke, PL milling has now been replaced by graphic anodizing for the most part besides BL, and more of my friends played then too. Thank you for the kind words and I believe the Darq is the rarest of them, there was only 126 made and only a handful of gold ones. Lastly I'm glad other appreciate Semi shooting videos. I may not have the fastest trigger fingers, but when I'm playing I can get on the trigger pretty well and the Violent triggers help. I get so tired of people shooting in PSP, it's like wow you can pull the trigger 5 times a second.. I may add an auto response video of the Darq just to see how fast I can get it running.

Thanks, but I prefer the milling and the way they shoot!

So I can't believe I'm even considering getting rid of my beloved markers, but I could use your guys' input. I told myself I'd never sell my Dark Ego and I still don't intend on it, but I am kind of getting that itch for a newer marker. Do you guys think I should sell all 3, maybe just the Darq Marq and Nexus and buy a new marker or keep them? I added a poll and please post your reasoning behind your vote(s). Thanks for looking!

I can believe it....gun-whoring is a horrible temptation. I've been through 10 or 12 over the last 8 years.
My only thing is that the guns you own will always be amazing...like you said yourself, the newer guns only have graphic's to distinguish them as a private label...milling is kind of a lost art (although lately I will say they've been doing a better job: dynasty/vicious geo 3, twister lv1, and of course bob long's guns).
Sure if you sell them all you can get an LV1, Insight, etc...but then you'll have what everyone else does...the nice thing now is that you own guns that very people will ever own or have the privilage of seeing for themselves and appreciating. There's something to be said about the guns you own...it would be a shame to see them go, and then later you regret your decision.
Think about it long and hard is all I have to say...

Good advice, I don't think I could ever sell my Dark Ego and my Darq Marq is really growing on me. I recently tuned it down for smoothness and it shoots amazing. I honestly don't know if a newer marker would really shoot that much better than it to justify it. I think I'm going to keep my Darq for awhile and I may just end up anodizing it and keeping it like my Dark Ego.

Haha yeah I am pretty proud of it and thanks for the kind words. Unfortunately I don't think I have any action pictures. Also the Nexus Ego will no longer be with me since I just sold it today.

Even though I shoot my Darq more, my Ego will always stay with me. It's my old reliable and looks very good too. I've had it for almost 6 years now and it's always worked well for me. Many people have tried to persuade me away from it, but they were all unsuccessful.

Well since it's almost Halloween I thought I'd add a little something to my Darq.

Haha thanks, might have to get another Dark series marker soon to make the Trifecta. I've had a couple Dark Intimidators for awhile that were nice might pick up another one or maybe something I haven't had before. Maybe a Dark Shocker and upgrade it with an Eigen bolt kit.

It's all good not the first time it's happened. Yeah they are definitely keepers, I've had the Dark Ego for almost 6 years now and I'd gladly keep it for another 6 years. I may end up anodizing the Darq, but for now I'm using her for the workhorse she is. I'm glad to say I've acquired some Dark demon jewels so now it has both jewels again!
