Make sure your marker is registered and then send them an email about getting the V3 can and voltage regulator. Ken and Jay respond really quickly.

Marker was registered. I emailed Jay and he responded right away. He said he forwarded my email to the proper people. I never heard anything after that. I ended up selling it. Needed doggy chemo money.

Ok, I have a question for everyone... I have a v3 vapor with a pooty bolt, dwell setting is 15, bolt return is 47, all other setting are stock...my vapor shoots flawlessly at 11.9 for psp... But this year I'm also playing USPA, so I need to shoot 15.4 and I went to test it at that bps and I'm having huge drop off at that speed. Idk why that is, my guess is the FT screw being to far in, which is probably 3 or so turns in... But i dont want to sacrifice the smoothness of it by backing that FT out... i can't be sure... Any help would be awesome guys. Thanks

Screw in the "Feather Touch" all the way closed and turn it out 1.5 turns.

Set your Dwell Between 9 to 12ms and your
Bolt Return Between 25 to 30

Mine is set to
Dwell 11
Bolt Return 27
Feather Touch to 3/4 to 1 Turn out from Closed

Two things come to mind;

~Fresh (NEW) battery (if it doesn't say Duracell, throw it out)
~Tank pressure (needs to be around 400-550 PSI)

I know this has probably been answered before but how can you tell the difference between v2 and v3 parts?

V3 parts are the RED firing can (v2 is gold) and the voltage reg (little black box; one end is plugged into the board, the other end gets plugged into the noid)

~take the engine out
~keep your thumb over the locking peg at the bottom of the engine
~push the plunger down with an oring pick (you'll see a small hole on top of the backcap)

Gotta say I am pretty disappointed in Machine Paintball at the moment. I've been in absolute love for the Vapor since I got mine last summer, its worked as it should every time I take it out, and its always consistent. Where I am having a hard time wanting to continue with the Vapor is the customer service from Machine themselves. I emailed Machine just over a month ago in the required format in order to receive my V3 parts and nothing has arrived yet.

As it stands today I emailed them this last Monday get an update as to the turn around time on the V3 parts once they get the request and they have yet to respond at all. I ran into this issue with them when I inquired about purchasing the smaller bore barrel backs when I first got the marker and in the experience it went from getting a response asking what color and sizes. When I responded with color and sizes I didn't get any response back and then emailed them back about it 3 weeks later only to get a generic "not at this time bro sorry" response from Drew.

Its this lack of customer service that in the end is starting to make me want to go back to Bob Long markers.
