Bob Long Vice vs Marq 6

I am finally going to upgrade to a high level gun and am stuck between the two of these, but am also open to any suggestions. My budget is $500.

The Marq 6 I'm looking at is Dust Black, with the following:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dust-Black-Bob-Long-Marq-6-/351117471965?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item51c03b 70dd
  • Gen 1 Marq 6 body
  • New Bob Long Super Charged Engine less than a case on new engine.
  • Original Bob Long Assassins 12" barrel
  • Gear Drive bleeding ON/OFF
  • Virtue Redefined board with all modes
  • 4C Eyes
  • Original box and spare oring kit

Minor scratches, 9/10 cosmetic and 10/10 function for $350


The Vice is silver
http://cleveland.craigslist.org/spo/4501783487.html
  • Tadao Ryujin board
  • 2 HPA tanks (need retested)
  • "electric hopper" (no other info given)
  • mask w/ extra lens
  • pressure gauge
  • all original boxes, manuals

He is firm at $500. I don't really *need* all the extras (except the pressure gauge) but they would be nice to have. Supposedly has only been used twice.

Thanks

Of the marqs, I liked the closer best (aside from the edge). I also preferred my closer over my vice. With the original marq engine they shoot amazingly.

Just a quick search: http://m.ebay.com/itm/231283766426?nav=SEARCH

what all do you need for this $500? do you already have the nice mask tank and loader? if so you can probably look at something different.
between these 2 since i actually have one of each (i have a marq7) i honestly would take the vice. it is lighter, smaller and will get more shots per tank. the only difference i see is the marq may have a bit softer shot and might be quieter. my vice is so broken in that it is quieter than a lot of spools.
if you get either make sure you get a pressure tester. especially with the marq. the new sc engine needs to be broken in so if you pick up the marq don't get discouraged that it isn't getting a case off a fill right away.
if you have any questions my pm box is always open no matter which marker of these 2 you choose. i will be more than happy to answer questions

just so you know the loader (electronic hopper) in the vice sale is garbage. i wouldn't get him more than 400 for the whole pkg. the vice has come down a lot in price i see them in the 300 range and 2 out of hydro tanks aren't worth more then 50 a piece the rest of the stuff is pretty much throw away

I actually already had that closer on my watch list. Thank you.

I have a decent mask and a decent tank but I need to find a good hopper. I found a Vice in decent shape for $275 with a virtue board, and an upgraded ram and spring

Careful with the older tadao boards. Some only go to a minimum of 14bps. Virtue does not have that problem.

I liked my sc closer more than the vice

I prefer the Intimidators over Marqs, but that's a preference thing. Everything else that has been said is good advice.
