Also forgot about this one. So many problems with the omen. So sad since evil seemed like a big 'up and coming' company at the time.


The stories of throwing markers in creeks or the ocean are hilarious! So terrible that you wouldn't want to sell it to anyone - now that's BAD.

I'm not sure exactly what it was called since it was over 10 years ago, but it was a ZAP mech gun with a single trigger. I actually still have the thing somewhere around here. That thing is made out of some ABS plastic, and the barrel looks like someone just took some steel piping and chopped it, its just a perfectly straight tube with zero porting. It was incredibly loud, and struggled to maintain consistent velocity.

On the up side, extremely hard, plastic body, I'm fairly certain I could chuck it at a brick wall and it'd be unharmed.

^^ one of those fell into my possession as well, I can't remember the name either but it looked so pathetic I never even attempted to shoot it.

Biggest disappointment was a freestyle 5. I bought it used and it had an STD lpr which I had heard good things about. First time ever airing up the screw in the lpr almost shot straight out. I degassed it and looked and the screw had stripped the threads as it pushed out. Because of that never could adjust the lpr so the freestyle was useless after that.

Second up was a tippmann custom pro. That thing would never stop "farting" after every shot. No combo of springs o-rings, lube, replacement valves and bolts ever did anything. Then to top it off on of the wires for the e-trigger came off the board and I tried to solder it back on but the contacts were so small I couldn't do it without crossing contacts. I just chucked that bad boy and parted it out

Dude really ? this gun is amazing to be completely honest you most likely got a lemon . This problem isn't a big thing I've heard about with the salvo . Also owning one myself I'd say it's a good marker for begginer/intermediate woodsball.

I had a 2k2 Dragon timmy that was an absolute nightmare. Constantly replacing internal hoses and barbs when I was 15 years old was such a pain in the ***.

Early 2011 G6R, no matter what I did or who worked on it, thing always just didn't work. After sending it to my local tech, and to Bob Long no matter what I did I got random FPS and Drop off. 271, 161, 300, 150, 250. I have owned a Vapor that never EVER gave me a problem, yet a G6R was the biggest POS Marker i have ever owned... Such a lemon

Heh, my buddy has a stingray 2 hanging on the wall in his garage. I'm thinking about taking it to the field and using it for a game or 2 to remind me just how far we've come.

I've have two horror stories, both of which with guns that were known to be great. The first was with my Hybrid Marq. Got it used, shot about a bag of paint through it and it started leaking like crazy. Couldn't find the issue so I sent it to a local tech who then sent it to Bob. Turns out "the body was milled wrong" and that it would never work reliably. They were great and sent me a brand new one! Unfortunately after a couple cases, that one started leaking too. Fixed it a couple times and sent it back to Bob once before saying "**** it" and selling. Shot great when it worked though!

Next, one of my teammates bought a brand new Luxe in 2008 when they came out. A few years later he sold it to a local while it shot amazing and some how the second owner ruined it. I was the next owner and could never get it to shoot right. People thought I was just dumb and would try to fix it, but to no avail. It went through a few more teammates and local owners before my buddy finally sold it out of state. That gun was known to be the cursed Luxe. Good riddance.
