Just send in a picture of the left grip frame...you usually put "NONE" in the box when you register.

I need this question answered fast. I am picking up a vapor Saturday at my local field. I am torn between a Luxe 2.0 , Macdev clone gt , boblong ripper victory, or the vapor which one would be my best bet. I am pretty much asking if the vapor is the ****.... Sorry to be so formal

It just so happens that I currently own a Vapor, Luxe 1.5 with 2.0 core and board, and a bob long ripper victory (and ego 11, although not in your list). I just traded my GT a couple of weeks ago, and a Geo 2.1 a few before that. At this caliber, it will simply come down to personal preference imo. While the Vapor is my favorite out of all the aforementioned markers, there is really just not a huge difference between them except for the Victory. Victory is crazy efficient, but louder and has more kick due to its ram.

Between the spoolies, it simply comes down to the ergonomics and how it fits you imo. I wanted to like the GT better, but in the end the Vapor hits where I pointed it. Marginally quieter, marginally smoother, but in game I don't really notice those differences, only at the chrono.

Thanks for the info. That was actually really helpful. Looks like vapor it is. What type of reg do you run on yours. I have a standard ninja reg not hp or lp

Ripper vic is mad effecient because it's an inline poppet, however it's definitely louder and has a little more "kick"



that should compair the other major markers

I would go with the vapor, as a retailer i can tell you they have some of the best costumer service in the industry hands down... Between Drew, Ken and ProMod nothing will be left in question. The gun in person is so damn sexy and IMO nothing feels better in the hand. Fit and finish of the vapor is excellent from the tip of the barrel to the quick release bolt and everything in between!!!

The board: at first maybe a little confusing but once you get the hang of it its one of the easiest boards to navigate...

Bolt: Very straight forward and easy to maintain. Keep it lubed, cleaned and you will be fine...

Asa: very simple and easy to maintain...

Eyes and eye covers: Pretty much the same as the luxe IMO, simple and easy

Tank: If you are using a ninja reg/pro reg remove two of the three shims and you will be at 550...

Pros:
easy to maintain
excellent costumer service
very smooth and consistent
latch style eye cover, quick release bolt
oled ape board
full barrel kit
hopper (when its released)
two triggers
great case
etc, etc (i could go on for days)

Cons:
NO MANUALS (horrible idea) but you can download them of the machine paintball website
Grips are a little thick and hard (personally i have zero problems with them)
a thumb screw would be very nice on the feedneck (that is my personal opinion)

HATERS, HATERS, HATERS a lot of people are hating hard on the vapor all over nation. So if you are buying this gun to flip and or make quick money on be warned...

In the end don't listen to the haters, try the gun out and see what you think and form your own opinion... Personally if have nothing but great things to say about machine paintball and look forward to a great relationship with them!

Check my sig for a link called BREAKDOWN and you'll see the ASA.


Use a pick or toothpick to push the core out from the vent hole at the bottom (or use needle-nose pliers to pull out the pin that hits the tank), then you can use an allen key to remove the two large screws and then it'll come right off


ATTN VAPOR OWNERS! If you want a feedneck wheel, the EGO STYLE feedneck wheels fit perfectly!

Yep, look in my sig for a link called "Tuning Guide" and you'll see a section dedicated to that issue. It's a quick fix.

two more quick questions i got billy's vapor in a trade and i dont see a serial number how do i register it i want to get a v2 bolt and also im concerned about my trigger settings how do i set the post travel because on most other markers if the trigger pushes the switch all the way down it can burn out the switch??? but there only seems to be 2 screws in the trigger
