I run Progress Paintball which is a new UK based company designed to offer sales and support of those hard to get paintball products.
In the UK, the only real supported markers out there are Planet Eclipse, Dye Precision, Empire, Tippmann and GOG/DLX. Companies such as Bob Long and Machine Paintball do not have a sales or support presence within the UK, so I have come along to offer that!
So, if you are in the UK or Europe and you have a problem with:
: Insight/ Victus, VCOM/VIS, G6R (2011 or 2012), Ripper - basically anything within the last 3 years.
: Vapor v1-v3 or 2014
I can also work on: MacDev
(Clone, CloneVX, GT, GTi), Alien
(Independence, Invasion and soon Deception), Vanguard
(Demon, Creed - although parts are almost impossible to get now).
I am your man!
A standard service is £19.95 (Silver - just carrying out maintenance as per manufacturers spec ie LPR, HPR, Drivetrain etc) or £29.95 (Gold) to fix leaks. Parts are not included in the price. Also, you pay for shipping your marker to me, and return shipping. So only send the marker in a well packaged box. Keep it under 2Kg in weight to ensure the price is £11 postage via Royal Mail Special Delivery. If it is over 2Kg, it jumps to £26!
I'll try to support more markers, but unfortunately not many manufacturers want to deal with me as I am not a physical shop. In the UK, I have quite a good reputation (not to blow my own trumpet!) and regarded as 'one of the nice guys of paintball' - often found fixing guns at games and letting people take my own out whilst I sort them out.
I can get testimonials from people - or check out my Facebook page for user comments.
In the last week, i've worked on 2x G6Rs, 1x Insight NG, 1x Victus, 1x DM9, 1x Etha and a few blown disks on a regulator.
My quickest turn around was a G6R received on Saturday and within an hour and a half of it coming in, it was back out in the post for the customer.
I always record an unboxing video to show how it was received, what was in the box, the condition and the problem - and also an fixed video showing the fix and explain what was done.
