Gives internet high 5 and brushes shoulder off. Well unfortunately I'm not sure how things are gonna work out with us, she might be moving to KC for a job offer and I'm stuck here in Wichititty.. Only time will tell, but life goes on.

So I am really impressed with the way my Darq Marq shoots, but I'm kind of wanting to have a newer marker. I either want to spend some money at FX anodizing and make my Darq look sick as hell, or sell my Darq, Nexus Ego and dare I say my Dark Ego even though I know I can't let that one go and buy an Insight or something. I would probably buy used here local since I don't really mind buying a lightly used marker and saving $$$. What do you guys think?

Also any idea what my Darq is worth? The ano has seen better days, it's fading in a small patch on one side and has some scratches throughout it but it shoots great. It has the SC engine tuned pretty nicely, VP scythe trigger, modd my frame for G6R grips, Furious .689 barrel, Gear drive and only 2C eyes with the Tadao Ryujin board. I also have a s-class trigger for it, stock panel grips, pressure tester and a boxed oring rebuild kit with DOW55 and dental oring pick. I paid $350 for it plus $20 for the G6R grips got it mod'd for free and $40 on a VP trigger. I also spent $25 on the oring kit, so that's around $440 all together for quite the workhorse. I got it recently so I'm not in a hurry but I really want an Insight!

TLDR: Should I sell my Darq and my Nexus Ego and save up a little money for a used Insight, or get my Darq ano'd with the money from my Nexus? Also what is a good price for my Darq with the ups and parts mentioned above.

Pictures of my Darq and both my Egos. The Dark Ego is staying with me unless I get a crazy offer.



And a terrible picture of the fading ano circled.

Seriously, the insight is really, really, ****ing amazing. I think it's the best spool valve ever made.

keep your Darq. The most important thing is that you like the quality of the shoot. you have all the time to do anodizing.

I know for me, I confide in guns with appropriate soul.

Guns have emotion, soul and personality and represent that of their designer's.

Some guns will jive with you, even if they're STBBs, some won't even if they're the insight (not the case for me. FINALLY, A MODERN HIGHEND THAT I CAN LOVE!!!!!).

Find the guns that become an organic extension of your nervous system over ones that are "da bestest".

That's why I love my quest (which is ironic because Chris is a ****ing ******* and sucks ****.), Shocker, and Angel Gat.

I also dig the Miami Rage/Gothic A1 Flys and some cockers but not others.

i think I'm finding solace in mags as well, but for now I'm beefing my DSG and TipX up.

If guns have a soul that can imprint on their user then that makes sense because no matter what gun I shoot at the beginning of the season I will always be back to using my ripper by Nationals/summer

Yeah, so I explore.

I've had Angels, STPs, Cockers from several brands, mags, matrices, protos, gen/2/3/5/6 timmys, marqs, shockers, ions, egos, race cockers, sheridans, nelson styles, spyders, tippmanns, DP, azodins, all that ish.

I really want to make an Azodin KP build, because to me, they have some of that goodness which I like to have while playing.

Maddmann lowers, hush bolt, single finger frame, eigenbarrel, 360 hpr?
Heeeeeck Yeeeaaahhh maaaan!
That is so worth it over a cocker pump build in that price category, now.

Because:
KP: $75
Maddmann valve and springs: $30-$45
360: $30-$45
Eigenbarrel: $30-$42
Single Finger Frame: $25-$35 iirc

$225-$250, super solid, low pressure, consistent, quiet, small, simple, and the bodies are cheap so you can go ****ing hard in the paint.
Idk about you, but that's damn good. I'd pit it, at that point, against an SM-1 and Checkit Sniper V2s.
Of course they latter two options still may be slicker, but you can't beat the price:performance and package size. It's also very lowkey, so less of a theft magnet.

Yeah I'm in the process of trying to unload it. I got a good offer for it with the barrel I had pictured earlier for $250 and I even offered to throw in some extra goodies to sweeten the deal. Just waiting to hear back now. I don't think I would anodize my Dark Ego though, I love the deep red ano. I may be sending the Darq to Mario at FX later this year or early next year though. Thinking I might do either like green, black with a red splash, vice versa of splash or a lime green and yellow acid wash.

Yeah I'm in no hurry to get rid of it, I just got it not too long ago and I'm very happy with the way it shoots. I've heard the SC engines aren't as smooth as the stock engines, but I've tuned it for smoothness while still retaining some efficiency due to the SC engine! I've heard not to anodize it though since there were less of the Gold Darqs. We will see right now it does exactly what it should, shoots people and still looks good doing it. I have kids coming up to me and asking what kind of marker it is after almost every game lol. I've even been nice enough to let some of the newer kids shoot it so they can experience the quality of shot Bob Long markers have!

Also guys I could really use your support right now, the Marq of the month thread is really lacking entries this month, please enter your Marqs! Link to the thread is below.

So has anyone had any experience with ICD Freestyles? I was watching a video on the FS8 after seeing an acid wash FS7 in the bst. I remember seeing them in magazines back in the day but never hearing much about them after that and I have never seen any on the field. I remember seeing B2K4's when they were almost brand new though. The only reason I bring the FS8 up is because it somewhat reminds me of the Marq platform even though they might operate differently. Here is the video I watched.

Last freestyle is my friend Tom's (Maloneoni). He can tell you EVERYTHING about ICD ****.

I say the promaster and the FS7/8s were the ****ing ****.

The stock guns, **** no.

The HR1'd or reverse engineered FS's: oh **** to the yes... inefficient and high pressure, but amaaaaazing ergonomics and shot. Ohhhhh.

A hammed up promaster? You better ****ing believe it. And you can AKA the **** out of one and have some pooty-esque boltwork along with a gun for less than $250-ish.

Very nice, I didn't know they made non paintball parts. On the subject of the SP lawsuit frenzy, I wish that they didn't put AKA out of business. I've never owned any Vikings or Excals, but they seem like amazing shooters especially for their time. I guess if your pockets are deep enough you can build an EvilM, but I'd rather have a newer truck/ new paintwarz gun. I actually saw someone using a nice red Viking at a couple of the series tournaments I played in this summer, nice to know I'm not the only one who isn't afraid of using an older marker for tourneys.. Just because something is the latest doesn't automatically make it the greatest! I used my 06 Dark Ego and then my Darq ever since I got it. To be honest I've been neglecting my Dark and Nexus Egos since I've gotten my Darq. It just shoots so damn smooth, quiet and consistent that I can't hardly put it down to use my Egos anymore. That's why I've been trying to sell my Nexus lately, just haven't gotten the right or serious offer yet unfortunately.

Sounds like some nice markers, but I need to unload one before I even think about getting another. I can't bring myself to sell my Dark Ego so I will always have that and maybe one or two more markers, but with that and my Darq I really don't need a second Ego or even a third marker really. Although the Darq is growing on me enough that I may just anodize it keep it along with my Dark Ego and possibly buy a new marker down the road.

On a side note I've heard a little info on an entirely new marker that is nothing like anything out right now that should be out towards the years end. The only hint I will give about it, is that it is going to be made by someone who has a lot of knowledge about how markers work and should be around the $900 mark. Oops I've already said too much..
