The Machine Vapor Thread (Info, Q and A's, and whatever else)

Since there really isn't a place (yet) to talk just about the Vapor I thought I would start one... So here it goes.

As more and more information becomes available I will try my best and update this thread with all information regarding the Vapor.

This is a place to:
1. Get information on the Vapor
2. Ask questions (and hopefully get them answered)
3. Post pictures
4. Get and give opinions (stay sane people)
5. Whatever else you can think of

Many Stores now carry the Machine Vapor
Custom anodized guns covered under Machine's factory warranty can be purchased through Pbn_Autotrader here on PBnation.

Tech Support Contacts:
tech@machinepaintball.com (Ken)
PbN_AutoTrader

Upgrades:
Pooty's Flat Faced Bolt now for the Vapor
Pooty51 offers a few (bolt mods and trigger mods that I know of)
Acid Customs makes aftermarket carbon fiber triggers (PM acidcustum for more information)

Oring Kits
Can be be purchased through Machine directly
Pbn_Autotrader here on the nation
Oringmonkey.com

Parts and Misc
Random stuff like triggers and such can be purchased through PBN_Autotrader here on the nation

Manuals:
Gun Manual http://d2ah7fc8nhyh86.cloudfront.net...s/Manual_1.pdf
Board Manual (Ape Gen 4 Board) http://www.goapeonline.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=17&Itemi d=52

Machine Customer Service

Has anyone had recent responses from Machines tech or customer service? I'm trying to be patient as it has only been 3 days. I had an issue with my initial order and two separate tech issues with the marker. I reached out to their sales, tech,Jay,and Drew with my inquiries and no response yet. Just growing increasingly concerned. Thanks.

How do you tell apart V3 vapors apart from the rest? Also, to you vapor owners does the pooty bolt and stuff add to the value?

I havent heard from tech support yet either. I was given a response a few weeks ago within the day. I would just be patient and keep trying.

V1 -gold can cupped face bolt
V2 -gold can flat face bolt
V3 - red can flat face bolt and voltage regulator

People tend to like pooty bolts so you might get more money out of it with one.

I emailed ken, jay, machine on FB and posted on their FB because my only breach insert broke a detent and no one hs gotten back to me all week. I don't wanna buy the rebuild kit from their site either cuz I don't need half the stuff and if I can't get a return email, how can I trust the product I buy will be shipped on time or ever. Nothing I said in any posts or emails were rude so I don't know why I'm being ignored.
Little guidance? Phone number something? Without a working breach insert the gun is a hunk of useless aluminum.

sad ... but I had a problem with my BRAND NEW IN BOX vapor 2014 out of the box it was leaking ... tooks it apart and looked around ... Still leaking ... wouldn't shoot over 260 with out the reg venting

Emailed everyone and tried on FB ( I know they saw my message)

2 weeks later no reply I asked for a new gun or a refund ... and got a phone number from the machine fb
didn't get one call and they wouldn't return my call

I figured out they had the FT screw in all the way very tight

Was Very unhappy

Hey all what do you think of your vapors? I am looking and PunisherPb has vapors for $800. Are they pulling an ANSgear and selling under MAP? Anyway, thank you for starting this thread. Was curious about the vapor. Looks like customer service is spotty.

Well those are the 2012 model. Probably what the last MAP price was set at when the 2014 came out.

Can anyone tell me which Vapor bolt has the spring in it, (like the old NDZ Shocker)? Had a customer lose the spring and I'm playing Hell trying to find a starting point on where to get one. Thanks, in advance!

Im going out on a limb here and will say the only spring anywhere near the bolt is in the efficiency valve. No spring in or on the bolt of my v3. Im almost positive the pooty doesnt use one and i dont remember seeing or hearing about the v1 bolt using a spring.

Yeah, I don't remember any Vapors being sprung. I'd like to see a sprung bolt for the 2014 Vapor though.

^^agreed. Wonder what it will do to those detents though...... I havent had the joy of shooting/seeing a 14 yet to tell how well the detents would hold up to that.
