True. I've been working on a drop-in engine for the Shocker SFT that'll turn it into a closed bolt poppet, running off a single solenoid. I gotta find a way to precision-mill the internal passages and get these guys made.

Good news everyone!

Well, actually AMAZING news:

Bryon Benini (yes, Ironman Legend and former DYE VP) just announced that he has joined up with Machine Paintball!

LOL! No problem. Enclosed bolt then. Should I just go non-exposed bolt?

I also have to always remember that back when I knew more about markers the sl68 was NEW. Some of these new fangled guns just get me all confused.

dye = the new smartparts
machine = the new dye
I'm not comparing products, just brand recognition in the paintball industry.

HA! It's all good buddy. I had an SL68 not too long ago. Was a quick flip; the kid epoxied in the detent and needed to replace it. A little dremel work and it's good as new.

While I tend to agree with you, I don't want to make any direct comparisons and tick people off.

What I will say is that Bryon brings some major skills to the table; If I remember correctly, he's quite good with soft-goods, and he has worked on the rotor in its design phase (that alone should be a testament towards his abilities).

I agree. Machine needs to work with PBN and have its own legitimate sub-forum

Yea, they're going to make their own merchandise so we might as well just let them have at it. There's no reason to interfere with that.

As for PbN, it's a huge buy-in for them with little to no payout. I would turn the whole idea down too if I was in their position.

Machine needs it.
There is basically no information about the marker online, and the MachinePaintball.com website is a joke.

Some active members have stepped up to the plate and did what Machine should be doing themselves.
I was lucky enough to find this vapor club and be able to reach out to to a few experienced owners.
Without the Vapor Vendetta, Machine wouldnt even have an online presence. If not on PBN, then have a forum tab on the main website.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ProMod said the Ego thumbwheel screws will fit the Machine vapor, so far they've worked great.
I also found this on TechT's website for all the hipsters:

I have a concern about barrel breaks in my vapor. I was shooting some empire custom blend and atleast every hopper id get 1 barrel break. Is it because of the barrel has a grove in the breech? I'm just curious to know.
