Review: When I first saw this marker I thought it was great. I bought it and took it to the field. After gassing it up my reg was creeping. I played with it that way for about 30 minutes because the field tech was busy and said it should be fine. I finally go to the insertion point and boom, then a leak appeared. We looked for the leak and couldn't find it. At first we thought it was the gauge and it wasn't. Come to find out the oring behind the front cap blew out the side. We took off the front cap and put the oring back in place. No more leak. The odd this is the relief valve didn't go and I was above 200 psi. At lunch time me and a field worker took the bottom half the vert max flo out and re-lubed it. No more reg creeping after that point. The marker shoots really accurate thanks to the Freak. It went through a lot more air then I was use to, but I didn't dink around with it so that will be remedied. I am always getting complements on the milling of this marker (which is sweet). Also when I pull the bolt out I get a lot of ooh's and ahh's.
Conclusion: This marker is great out of the box and has a lot of potential with little money spent. If you like Impulses and are looking for a custom house Impy then this may just be the one you are looking for.

9 for the reg issue. Small and easy to fix.
