closer engine

hey im just wondering what would a generation 1 engine mean in a stock closer. i know there are a few different engines out there for the marq such as proficiency and SC kit.

what would be the downsides to using a gen 1 engine, is it just efficiency that improves with the new engines?

Efficiency, smoothness, and reliability

The stock engine is the most reliable though, second to the SC I think.

Delrin bolt is "stock", metal bolt, no brown donut/red blast guide is PE, Stage 1 or 2 depending on bolt, and then the SC which is top dog.

I don't think there are official generations for the engines, but they were released as follows...


Original engine with threaded ram and aluminum bolt.
Original engine with QD ram and delrin pillow bolt.
PE engine with SS pillow bolt.
SC engine with upgraded SS pillow bolt.

The original engine shoots amazing. The later engines were designed mainly to increase efficiency (and reliability somewhat).

yup. the gen 1 engine is still efficient enough for xball. the pe kit was developed in conjunction with the mtac, meaning that it was designed with the paint load of woodsball in mind, preventing the frequent fill ups that would be required in that format with the original engine. another benefit is that the pe/sc is more consistent and a slight bit smoother.

Just ask for a pic of the engine, and you can tell which one it is easily.

Hit me up if/when you get it and I'll meet you at SC or wherever to give it a 5 min. checkup.

I don't loan out ANYTHING unless I'm there when it's being used, but I've got a tester, lube, tools, o-rings, even my own chrono. I also enjoy teaching others how to work on their gear.
