I think I heard a rumor that this gun will eventually come with a loader as well. Something like, buy it now for 1600, get the loader for free when it releases. Also, a hardwire connection between the loader and gun.

Spoke to someone in the alien booth here at nppl HB and he said 1600 for the vapor. Feels good in the hands, nice and light, but didn't like the trigger.

Gun looks nice, but that trigger is going to suck.

This will come stock with the new APE board, which connects to the hopper (which it also comes with), via some slick connector pins on the feedneck.

It should be a really cool setup, that is something we really haven't seen before.

I'm really excited about getting my hands on this marker.

This question is for anyone who saw this marker over the weekend. How was the quick release for the Bolt assembly set up?

But what's the point? With a 15 bps cap, it's tough to find a loader that can't keep up by today's standards.

Seems like the hit to reliability isn't worth it to me...

i actually found it to be pretty easy. you just push the tab up twist it to the side a little and pull out. not any harder than the luxe/chrome IMO.


the vapor was a lot lighter than i expected and a much lower profile than the pictures make it out to be. some things about it i noticed was the backcap was a shade lighter than the rest of the gun and the asa is kinda funky. as stated above it uses the exact same eye cover setup and detents as the luxe does. the bolt looks identical to the luxe except for the can is much smaller. i would like to be able to test one out to see how they shoot but overall it was a decent looking marker to handle.


edit: here are some pics a friend of mine took of the marker

I too thought the marker was very light. Internally, very similar to a shocker/luxe. Thought the mill work was a "B", Deffinately not a "A". Compact package! On/off was alright, barrel was ok. Engine removed quickly and went back together easily. Very nice feedneck and lever! $1600 is over reaching a bit, especially when a new Zodiac ZR1 is $850. Another nice marker.
Want to shoot one as soon as they are released...

If Im gonna spend $1600 it will be on a proven design like the Luxe. $1000 and this Vapor will have my attention.

In for final testing.

Have put a good amount of pant through it and will put quite a bit more before any statistics released. Will verify if I can release videos in next few days.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
