Brought my demon to the pro shop

I'm an HVAC guy and I did a service call at my favorite Paintball shop. I recently acquired a demon that supposedly had a lot of problems. After fixing the AC I sat down at the tech bench and went through the whole marker. All I could find wrong was a nicked shuttle oring. I reassembled the marker and took it to the shooting gallery..........what a beast! Man I love this marker.
My question is.....why are these things so troublesome? Is it really the marker or do people just lack the patience and problem solving abilities to work on a more complex marker?
I hope I can pick up another "problem demon" in the future.

Some demons like to tear shuttle valve rings. It's a common issue with the markers but sizing rings and other remedies can solve this. To another your other question, Demons do require basic patience but a lot people just give up on them.


If you need any help with the marker feel free to message me.

I'm excited to use it during a game. Just feel like people may have misunderstood this one

People don't want to tinker, people don't want to tech.. As I always say they just want it to work with as little maintanence as humanly possible

Someone on here maybe a year ago or so posted up a solution to the cut shuttle orings. They basically did a hand sanding and polish of all the sharp edges(edges only) around the shuttle valve. Something like that. I know that's what I would do if I owned one. They're such small orings transitioning over so many edges that bad things are bound to happen.
