To get it running I did a full oring swap (who ships a high end spool valve with all buna orings?) then the oring between the frame body kept blowing out leading to a leak.
I got it all up and running, then sold it off. Dont get me wrong, they shoot great, but the reliabilty and customer service is just awful, and I hate to say that because after talking with the head guys I had a lot of faith that things had changed. Im not even mad as a customer, Im pissed on a personal level at being completely bamboozled.

It just wasnt reliable, luckily I profited off of it, but if I held onto it any longer I wouldve lost out. 431 views on the one I have gold upp'd, one offer so far lol.

I didnt invest anything into mine, all profit. To be fair the ones that do shoot, shoot phenominally. I made 1000% profit on mine. Ive known Mike for some time, and its a shame to have him lie outright to my face.

I see youre that "I told you so guy" nobody wants to be that guy

Its already been said, by Rudz lol.

Ill be the very first to admit when Im wrong, and this case I certainly was. Reliability is paramount, and in this case it wasnt there. Im sincerely disappointed in the situation, but not surprised. As I said, I have tons of humble pies waiting to be eaten.

Everything I have right now is working right as rain though, so Im stoked about that.

Reliability problems poor customer service and the reputattion of the Spurlock brothers is gaining merit every single day. And its only been like a damn month.

They shipped the guns with all buna orings that have to be replaced, almost no lube, some guns have machine marks, and the grips are horrible

I shot one that worked and it did shoot well, it was clean and well machined, but the owner sold it asap before the market crashed

The problem with Vapor resale is PBN_Autotrader, hes been selling them for $1350 since they were released, and Machine wont revoke his account.

Pooty is no longer a dealer, nor is ShootnPoo.

The problem with the marker started when I opened the box, it was leaking, brand new, from the factory I had to adjust all the settings. I got it to work for one entire day of play and everyone at the field loved it actually. The next week I brought it out I was chopping paint, leaking, misfiring. Adjusted settings to no avail. Replaced the stock, buna orings on the inner can and bolt guide and it sealed and worked after that for awhile. Then it kept leaking (very tiny, but steadily) out of the vent hole, was chopping paint, and misfiring. I was fed up at that point, I should not have had to put that much work into any marker out of the box. Let alone one priced at that high of a cost. I had a ton of faith in them initially, but it was all misplaced.

Ill be very lucky to get $1000 out of my friends Vapor on the b/s/t area. There was actually a fair amount of lube with mine, and the 3rd run they replaced the orings.

But the CS is ****, we tried for a week and a half to get an ASA pin for a friend, and I talk to the machine guys regularly. They just ignored me

Also I dont get where people are saying the grips are hard, mine were soft and pliable. But thats a really tiny thing that doesnt make a difference in the big picture. Im disappointed on a lot of levels.

I had one guy with a Vapor offer for my Luxe a few weeks ago. I replied back to the guy and said "I'd rather shoot an Ion over a Vapor." I'll stick to a proven, reliable company/design. All of these little companies that are popping up and producing guns are only making garbage and most of them lack the funds to fully make their products something truly reliable and well accepted by the public.

Try taking out the repeated parts in your op and get WAY better pictures and you might get more interest. Those photos are terrible. That gun looks neat anyway.

It has nothing to do with anything in the ad, Ive bought and sold tons of things on various mediums online (I did write it before crashing so Ill fix any repeating lines). It has everything to do with the fact that they have bad resale. It isnt my marker, the one I got cost me nothing, so Im not one of the ones that are out anything. I do feel bad for those that are.

They arnt my pictures, and youd be mighty surprised whos Vapor that is.


Vegard, giggle all you want, I fully deserve it. Im laughing at myself now, because friends dont seem to be as friendly as they were before I gave them some more or less free advertising, and praise. Perhaps Im naive, but Im man enough to admit when Im completely wrong and in this instance, as unfortunate as it is for my online reputation (oh noeeez) I was.

Oh yeah, I dont disagree with that at all, and Ill definitely request for him to take some better photos.

Onto happier things, I found a source for cheap nano feednecks and bought a few to resell, just enough to get mine for free =D Ive already sold a couple and some boss bolts. I had to look in different countries to find them anywhere lol.

The Vapor was an unfortunate stumble, and I deserve every bit of ribbing I get. I actually personally apologized to Darryl Trent for ever saying the Vapor was a better buy.. Darryls probably one of the nicest dudes Ive met through the sport though, so he didnt rough me up too much on it. =p

Photos updated, sorta. its pr1mos old vapor so he let me use his pics until I get more.
Better looking?
