Seriously? Why does everyone want what everyone else has? White boxes are 1st edition, and therefore more rare.

As for V3 parts, they've said multiple times that parts are on the way, they're waiting for the next shipment to come in so they can distribute them to the various vapor owners.

Looks like the V3 parts are still coming in and they are waiting to get a proper supply before sending out.
V3 is really the major performance difference; the V2 bolt is mostly for small-bore paint, and the ASA core/ASA cam/reg top hat are for small corrections in machining tolerances.

Originally, the vapors used red/ir laser eyes. I think they've switched over to a slightly different frequency for better results. I personally prefer to solder my own eye harnesses so I run green eyes.

When i was in paris for the last MM they said that the new vapors came in a black box and that the software used on the boards would be different than the guns in the white box. Is this treu?

They are not selling the Black boxes yet maybe later they will. At least that is what they are telling me.

HA! If you can convince Machine, I'd be willing to assemble and tune a few ProMod edition Vapors for them.

I'd consider my Vapor to be a 1/1 ProMod edition right now as I've made a few modifications to it. It might be up for sale in the future if the price is right. I'm not exactly happy with these gun-control debates so it's time for me to buy an extra rifle or two. We'll see what happens.

I always tell people to be happy with what you have; there's no reason to have a white AND a black case. White cases look better anyway

Ok. So I just got back from a loooooooooong extended vacation to SE Asia and realize I need update the crap out of this thread. Since I've been out of the loop for so long I'm gonna need some help. Anything I should change/add/delete?

I just traded for a used vapor v2. Is it possible to order/buy the v3 parts when they come in? Is Machine giving v3 parts to the original owners or do original owners have to pay for the upgrades? Hopefully these are not dumb questions but there isn't exactly a ton of info on the versions of vapors on the web or pbn. I'm not lazt and don't mind reading but 48 pages is a bit much.


EDIT: Ken from Machine got right back to me! Thank you sir! This was his reply, "V3 parts are a new can. And a voltage regulator for the noid. Parts are free to registered guns. Should be here within this week"

Yep, V3 parts will be available shortly, like Ken said

More information that should be publicly known: THE WARRANTY FOLLOWS THE MARKER, NOT THE FIRST PERSON TO REGISTER!!!! WHEN YOU RE-REGISTER THE MARKER, YOU GET THE NEW PARTS. IF YOU DON'T RE-REGISTER THE MARKER, THE LAST PERSON TO REGISTER THE MARKER GETS THE PARTS.

This isn't rocket science guys

Yep, just re-register the marker on Machine's website. Should be under the Tech Support tab.

guys, if you just re-register in the site it'll be good to go, you don't need to email Andy just to confirm...it's a database setup; as soon as you enter your number and contact info, it overwrites whoever last registered that serial number.


so let's say number VP000XX was registered to "John Doe". if I reregister VP000XX as "Mike Smith", then "Mike Smith" will get the loader. It's really not that hard

The hopper goes to whoever last registers the marker. so bottom line: REGISTER YOUR MARKER. RE-REGISTERING YOUR MARKER IS FINE IF YOU'RE NOT THE FIRST OWNER!

BTW, if you want the new bolt, make sure your marker is registered and then email Tech@MachinePaintball.com and [kindly] ask for one.


**EDIT**

On a side note, it's OK to register your marker more than once, the warranty follows the marker, not the person.
If you get a vapor used, RE-REGISTER the marker on www.machinepaintball.com/pages/support

Thanks man, I'm sorry for being a dink! You seem to great work in helping everyone in the vapor community! I admit I didn't read every page in the vapor threads. I looked al over Machines site, emailed Ken. Seriously thanks for helping us folks that are new to the Vapor!

For the record, I was being a SA to ProMod because frankly he deserves it from time to time.

For the best info, look through the pages on here. Check out the Weekly tips on the Machine Paintball Page. Join the Vapor Vendetta. When all else fails, email tech@machinepaintball.com or jay@machinepaintball.com.
