Review: I bought my son an onyx (well he paid but I did the paperwork) about a month ago now. I bought the gun used w/ the two eye setup, cp reg, cp on/off plus the stock stuff for $850. My son and I have shot about 6000 balls through this now and it's been through one tournament (today). The gun worked perfectly today in the tournament and with all the testing we did over the previous month.

Strength's-

Efficiency- I don't have an exact number but my son only filled his tank once at the beggining of the day and left w/ 1400psi in his tank. He started at 3200psi and I know he shot at least 800-1000 balls. So with that info I would say the onyx could get a real 1900 shots out of a 68/45 full fill. He was shooting at 275+-fps.

Looks- just look at it! It is beatiful/hot/dead sexy looking gun imo

Kick/noise- Well, I could best desribe this as having a little bit more kick than a nicely tuned dm6 but much less than my ego's. It really is a smooth gun. As for the sound of the gun it is also a litle louder than the dm's I have owned but not nearly as loud as an ego. W/ the lpr the gun also seems very easy on paint from what we have put through it. BTW, don't mess around w/ the lpr unless you have an plr guage so you can make sure you are not setting it to high!!!!

Speed- If you are looking for speed then stop right here and just go buy one of these. W/ the two eye setup the fastest we could get the gun to shoot was 19 w/ a pulse, halo, and VL. Once we dropped the four eye setup in we were hitting 24bps (real bps not cps and yes I goldwaved it to verify what we already knew) and quite sure we could have gotten more but why.

Reliabilty- Well, so far so good! With over 6000 ball shots plus more dry fires than my wife and I care to think about it has yet to have any issues. Ok, check that, the bolt did come loosened from the poppet ram a little bit but that was only because after I lubed I did not reef it down tight enough I think. It has not happened since.

Weakness-

Board settings- This part of the gun absolutely is lacking! Seriously Bob man! The stock board has only two dwell settings 8 or 10 and two debounce settings max or min. The firing modes are more than enough. Not good!

Trigger- This is just opinion I cannot judge how well others will like the trigger. Ok, this trigger absolutely sucks. The pre pull is non exsistent and the post pull is stopped because the the trigger hits the guard before I would like it to stop. If you try to pull out the trigger spring plan on turning your debounce to max because it will go full auto every time. Can you guys tell I don't like the trigger?

Weight- not really a weakness but it is heavier than I thought it would be. Noticeble over my SL66, dm6, and pmr.
Conclusion: It is a really nice gun despite some of what I call weakness's. The gun is fast, seems very reliable, is efficient, looks great, and shoots smooth. The onyx/marq6 is well worth taking a real hard look at if you are planning on buying a gun in the 1k range. Bob, please for the love of GOD, do something with the board settings! I give the onyx/marq6 a 9 for the lack of board settings only. The weight and trigger are to subjective for me to lower a rating on. Buy, buy, buy, buy one!
