vs3 man ftw is an NCPA player
Thinking about an SP1.

I havent played paintball in 2 years but want to start again. I always liked to be a little different and thought about using an sp1 for comptitive style xball. I know they have the same internals as a vibe and know they shoot great. I was wondering how much maintenance will owning an sp1 require? Ive seen pictures and it looks like theyre difficult to take apart. I also wanted to know how I would get eyes into the gun. Would i have to use an Ion XE breech and board? any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Basic maintenance is extremely easy. All you have to do is to remove the back panel (two hex screws) and then unscrew the whole firing assembly which will come out. You just inspect the o-rings on the firing can, bolt and bolt guide, wipe off the old grease, re-grease, re-assemble and you're done. The whole thing takes less than a minute. I do it every 2 cases shot or so. I only do a full disassembly (taking the board out, etc.) once a year when I do an extremely detailed clean-up. And even that is not that bad. You can also re-grease the reg piston every 6 months or so, which will add another minute to the maintenance cycle.

My SP-1 is now 6 years old and still works like a charm.
