Considering a Marq 7...reliable good gun?

I am considering buying a marq 7 and I was wondering if it is a all around good gun to own and shoot. I would love to have one but I would just like to have a different perspective from someone that already owns one of these. I would appreciate it! thanks!

I traded my Ego7 for a Closer and I must say that the Closer is far more a solid smoother and comfortable gun, need to mention that it's way quieter as well. I didn't encounter any problems today when I used it for the first time and I am very impressed with it. I also got about 6 pods total with a 3k 68ci tank.

yes they are.... Everyone says they shoot like DMs but weight a little more, to me the weight helps balance the gun so its not loader heavy...

I love my marq

Not your fault, it happens way to frequently to only single you out as the stupid one.

To the OP:I've owned every Marq out there, ranging from stock setups to fully up'd and I've loved them all. Right now the only thing that I've found I enjoy shooting more than a Marq is my Luxe. You won't be disappointed if you pick up any Marq.

Bob Long doesn't mess around.
That's why I had to join the family and pick up a Marq.

That's right, I picked up a Marq 7 earlier this week and yesterday i put that and my trusty old DM6 on a scale and they both weighed in at exactly 1027 grams.

Dude.
It's like, a 1oz. difference between the 6 and 7, if I remember right.
I don't think you can really say any of the Marqs are bricks.
