Never has bolt stick issues..any mechanicall problems for as long as ive had it. Soo reliable. I can play for two days straight leave it sitting for a a couple weeks forgetting to clean and lube..pull it out and start ripping it up like nothing. Sureee the accuracy sucks and it sucks air like crazzyyy but i can always depend on it so ill never get rid of it.
But i want something new and retire this to my back up. Im torn between an LV1 and a Revi...i have my concerns about both tho.
Lv1 obviously the price...second the maintenece! Seems like everybody i know that owns a high end gun just always seems to be working on it...i dont wanna pay $1300 for something i gotta bo working on constantly..should be the more you pay the easier it gets lol!! But i dont know much about the lv1 so maybe i should just shut up and buy it.
The Revi....love that it seems so simple like my g3. Looks awesome..nobody has em. Easy maintence and dp name seems sooo reliable. But am i going to spend $800 on it when actually it pronly not much better of a gun than my g3 with all the upgrades i got on it.??
First, dont buy new. Try to find a used one with a techt engine. You will save a good chunk of money that way.
Second, the LV1 is a good marker. I dont know what problems you have seen people have with it, but i have multiple friends that have them and they almost never have to do anything other than clean the bolt now and again. The Rev-i is a solid marker as well. It's super easy to maintain and comes with a nice case and barrel kit for less than the LV1. Both markers are great in my opinion.
Without the techt engine, the rev-i is definitely still going to be less efficient than the LV1. It is mostly going to come down to personal preference for you. I have owned 2 different Rev-i markers and I loved them. If i had the opportunity to get another, I would.
