• • •NEW AND IMPROVED Ultimate Marq FAQ\Sticky• • •

Alright gents,

The Marq forum has been getting really redundant lately, so I've decided to revamp the sticky and make all the most relevant material at the forefront.

BASICS:

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MARQ 6\7\Rapper\Mummy\Closer\Darq\Edge?


WHERE CAN I FIND A MANUAL FOR THE GUN?

WHERE CAN I FIND A MANUAL FOR MY BOARD SETTINGS? (FRENZY 3.0)

WHERE CAN I FIND A MANUAL FOR MY BOARD SETTINGS? (Tadao M8\Ryujin)

HOW DOES THE MARQ WORK? OPEN OR CLOSED BOLT? SPOOL VALVE? POPPET VALVE?
The Marq is a revolutionary electropneumatic inline poppet valve design. It is not a spool valve, nor is it a traditional stacked tube design--but rather a unique platform that is unlike nearly any other high end tournament marker available. In the diagram linked above, the green, low pressure air is being fed by the solenoid, and blue, high pressure air from the vertical regulator.

WHERE CAN I GET REPAIR PARTS\ORINGS?

BLAST! Click the above link.

HOW CAN I CONTACT BLAST?
209-293-4440 or techsupport@boblongdirect.com

WHAT ARE SOME AFTERMARKET TRIGGERS THAT I CAN BUY?

WHERE CAN I GET MY BOARD FLASHED FOR THE NEW PSP, SETTINGS, ETC.?

Frenzy\Stock board users--send the board in an anti-static bag in a well padded and packaged container to BLAST. BLAST ADDRESS (CLICK ME!)
Tadao Users--send the board in an anti-static bag in a well padded and packaged container to Tadao Technologies TADAO SERVICE PAGE (CLICK ME!)

HOW DO I TELL IF I HAVE 4 EYES OR TWO?
Frenzy\Stock Board: With a ball in the chamber, check the LED indicator. If it is flashing BLUE, you have 4-Eyes. If it is flashing Purple\Violet, you have 2 eyes.
Tadao Users With a ball in the chamber, check the LED indicator.If it is Solid Teal, then you have 4-Eyes. If it is solid Purple, then you have 2-Eyes.

WHAT KIND OF DETENTS DOES THE MARQ USE?
The Marq uses a proprietary (unique to the Marq) detent that is both durable and effective. You can get them from Bob Long Direct or any BLAST authorized dealer.

CAN I DRY FIRE MY GUN? I HEARD IT WILL BLOW THE PILLOW OUT!
The Marq pillow bolt will eventually blow out without back pressure in the breech. Placing your hand over the breech while dry firing it, or placing a squeegee down the barrel will stop you from blowing our your pillow.



Troubleshooting\Maintenance


OFFICIAL MARQ TROUBLESHOOTING \ MY GUN IS BROKEN, HOW DO I FIX IT? THREAD

HOW DO I SEND MY MARKER IN TO BLAST FOR SERVICE?
BLAST ADDRESS (CLICK ME!) Package the marker up safely with good padding, and write clearly your return address. Inside the box, include a letter saying what's wrong with the marker, and your contact information (YOUR NAME, PHONE NUMBER AND ADDRESS). You will be called if there's a charge, and if you don't hear anything, your gun is probably already on it's way back to you. Keep in mind, sometimes they get backed up, be patient and confident that your marker is in the best hands imaginable.

HOW DO I USE THE BOB LONG LPR TESTER? (ONLY FOR BOB LONG BRAND LPR TESTERS!)
Remove your engine from the gun by undoing the screw at the rear of your Marq. After you've removed your engine, insert the tester until the gauge on the side is seated against the body of the gun. The gauge on the side reads your high pressure regulator (which should be 230psi) and the gauge on the back is your LPR pressure (which should be 80).

WHAT SHOULD MY LPR\HPR PRESSURES BE SET AT?
LPR--80psi. HPR--230psi. These are the factory reccomended pressures, as well as the approximations for 300fps with a good paint\bore match.


MY GUN IS LEAKING DOWN THE BARREL!

Remove the engine from the marker, and replace all the #22 orings on the outside of the engine (there's 6 of them). Sometimes even a microscopic nick can create a leak--better to replace a 2 cent oring then spend hours troubleshooting your marker. Lube the fresh orings with Dow55, and carefully reinsert your engine, making sure not to slice any of the orings on the internal grooves in the body.

MY GUN WON'T SHOOT ABOVE 200\220\240\260!!
Couple of things to check here. Is your vertical regulator lubricated and its seals in good condition? What are your pressures at? (They should be 230 on the vertical\inline\HP, and 80psi for the LPR) If none of that fixes it, remove your engine. Drag an oring pick through the groove in the rear of the interior of your Marq. Did it have debris\oring chunks in it? If so, replace the outer engine orings. Still doesn't fix it? Consider replacing your poppet, especially if it's an older marker...they get worn. Also, verify that the holes on your engine are correctly aligned..they should look like THIS.

MY MARQ ISN'T EFFICIENT--HOW DO I FIX IT?

In this case, the best thing to do is check your setup--make sure you're running a tight paint\bore match. This is a critical factor in obtaining velocity with a Marq. Beyond that, your marker should be running at about 230psi from the HPR (vertical reg) and 80psi from the LPR. Dwell should be at 8--which is stock. You can check your LPR and HPR easily with the gauge made by Bob, or you can build your own. Additionally, check the surface of the poppet for deformations and damage, and make sure the rearmost orings on the engine are fresh and lubricated with Dow 55. Once all of this is set, you can try running your dwell down--but most of the time it doesn't do much good.

WHERE CAN I BUY AN LPR GAUGE?

HOW DO I MAKE AN LPR GAUGE AT HOME?

ARE THERE ANY HOW-TO VIDEOS ON HOW TO MAINTAIN MY MARQ?

HOW DO I LUBE\MAINTAIN MY MARQ?

WHAT SHOULD I USE TO LUBE MY MARQ?

Dow 55. You might be able to use Dow33\Sl33K in a pinch, but ALWAYS stick with the factory reccomended lubricant. DO NOT USE: Hater Sauce\Marmalade, Slick Honey, or Dye's Green Lube.

Just because 33 is for Shockers and the Matrix, doesn't mean it's for the Intimidator or Marqs. Only Dow 55 is used during the development of Bob Long Markers. The tolerances built into the BLAST products were specifically designed with orings treated with Dow 55.

Whatever you do, if used judiciously, an 8 oz tube will last you longer than you'll own the marker.
I BLEW MY PILLOW OUT! WHAT DO I DO?
Call BLAST and explain what happened. 209-293-4440. Sometimes they charge for them, sometimes it's free--it depends on current supply on hand.

I CAN'T GET MY REGULATOR OFF OF MY GUN...IT JUST KEEPS SPINNING!
Tighten the two setscrews at the top of the regulator to fix this.

WHAT SHOULD MY SETTINGS BE FOR THE NEW HIGH EFFICIENCY ENGINE?
For Tadao Users only: Have a long trigger throw, make your activation point LATE in the pull, LPR 50psi, AMB 3, BIP 3, Bolt Delay 13

Could you post the recommended settings while using the HE engine? I think that would help.

I'll send you the Links for the Power point for the how to clean and maintain your HE Engine as soon as I complete it.

You should put the Stock Settings for the Stock Engine up there as well for the "it just changed by itself" people.
