Upgrades:
1. On/Off - The stock models come with a nice asa but no on/off feature.
2. Barrel - The stock assassin barrel is decent in its own right, but get a kit.
3. Pillow Bolt - Much more soft on paint
4. 4 Eye - This is optional but the 4 eye setup allows for faster rate of fire.

Review: I have always been a BL fan. His guns have been a steady and reliable machine for me over the years. When I was looking for a new gun, this was the first stop I made. At a local field, I was able to fire one before I bought. After 1 pod I was hooked. The gun has no kick, shot ropes across field, and felt very balanced.

The feel is solid. You know you are hold a nice piece of equipment when you grab one. The Marq is very balanced, more so than my Ego. Its a pleasure to shoot and is very comfortable. It is a little heavier in feel than my Ego but not by an amount that would make me complain at all.

One thing that I always liked was the LCD feature of my guns. I was never a fan of the LED setups from my DM days but with this gun I had no choice. However, that being said the features are very easy to use. Dip switches are very simple and instructions make is clear as to what to do. Having only two firing modes isnt a problem because everywhere I play its either semi or psp and always capped 15. The lack of other modes didn't bother me at all.

Let me just say that this is a fast marker, really really fast. Uncapped, I don't quite know what the rate of fire was but it seemed as if I was around 19 or so. There was no kick and snap shooting was a breeze due to its balance. Efficiency is great, I would say I was able to get 5 pods and a hopper comfortably. Consistency was great and accuracy was ball on ball anywhere on the field.

The only gripe I have is the on/off. I just don't understand how or why a better asa was not included. A simple push button would have been great but since all of the other guns that I have bought came with some sort of on/off, I felt a little miffed but it's a very minor gripe.
Conclusion: There isn't a whole lot needed to say. Just pick one up and shoot it. Once you do, you will be selling your other guns and getting one of these. Light, Accurate, Efficient and Balanced makes this a top contender. At a price less that $900 on ebay stores, its a steal. You can't go wrong with this choice. 10 out of 10.
