Can't get over how the marker turns on and off, seems easy to accidentally push it back and turn it off.

It's not. The o-ring the retains it gives it enough resistance where it is easy enough to push/pull when you intend to, but not when you don't. I actually like it because instead of having to push and hold a button and wait for the gun to turn on, you pull the button and that's it, she's running. Granted I only got to run with this for a little bit at the Alamo big game at Top Gun last month, but I put 5 pods and a hopper through it (out of a 48/4500) while beating through brush, crawling around in the dirt, and sliding into bunkers and never once accidentally turned it off in play.

There are now too many guns in my opinion. I'm wondering what the real difference is between these new markers and the already established lines. And if these companies can really out-do the other companies at least for the price.

its nice to have choice though.

remember when it was angels everywhere? Now you get 5 guys on a pickup game and there is a good chance none of them shoot the same gun.

No leaks. For the past 3 months, with the exception of having the gun out to show, Ive kept constant pressure on the reg, and havent oiled this thing since June....



Questions?
I'm betting that you'll probably need to change that oring on the bolt back as well as maybe one or two of the inner core orings here and there. If you only use oil, I can see the oil blowing out and some wear occuring. Nothing major. Your reg may also just need maintenance. I don't know if they used grease or oil in it from the factory. You may want to take a look and grease it up. 90k shots on two batteries is probably going to cause performance issues. That's a lot of shots! lol.

Well that's probably the best way to test any product. Run it hard! Let's face it, most people who spend 300 on a gun aren't into doing proper maintenance. If the thing keeps going even when neglected, then it's a champ.

Ill admit, this little thing has taken some beatings. Its my main paint tester, demo on fields, and just general..."Go get that....I wanna shoot something" rig.

Im impressed......and I am a DEFINATE gun snob

i've seen just the opposite of this statement in all of my years of playing. just take a gander into any of the spool marker forums over the years.

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.
