Review: I had been wanting a VS2 for about a month before I bought it. When I got it--in a large box with a Fasta loader, VS2, and body kit. Darn, was I comparable to a teenage boy in a room full of supermodels. For lack of other descriptors, I was very horny. The VS2 was the sexiest thing I was allowed to hold in my hand. I HAD to try it. The next day, today, I brought it up, along with other gun (for my friend to use) and began to use it. I could easily shoot 15bps (and I've only been playing 6 months.) It was also pretty accurate for stock and especially accurate for a blowback. I could hit the targets my friend's PMR could nearly as consitantly, and he has a barrel kit. After several games I was quite impressed. After a walking defense I had gotten three in one game--1/2 of the enemy team. I was literally up to par with my friend (the one with the PMR) and he has been playing for a year. It is truly amazing, and the only problems I've had with it were a loose screw, a burst o-ring and, sadly, my gauge broke. Only the latter seems to be a reaccuring problem in this marker. It is really worth the $180 you can get it for.
Conclusion: This is really great, and I had lots of fun with it. It definately replaces my MR3, and that marker was more expensive. Yes, I compared it to the PMR, and in my opinion it CAN hold its own, but it is in no way better than the PMR. Guns like the Proto are in a differant league, but for low-end, the VS2's the way to go.

Oh, and when you comment the review (IF you comment) could someone give suggestions on what could be wrong with the pressure gauge? It's stuck at 100 PSI, yet there is no air in the gun. I even dry fired it three or four times. Any help would be appreciated.

Did you increase the input pressure? If so, you may have blown it. Also, it may jsut be defective. You can buy a new gague if you need to online.

It was running at a steady 175 all day, so I took it down--but it could've been broken already, and the defect could've added PSI on the dial.

yea, it's just a blown guage, i made that mistake with mine too, you can probably find new one for about $25 if you want

it could be the gauge insert shifting it starts out completely horizontal then mine eventually shifted to completely vertical so i just marked where it was at with no pressure by scratching the paint off for zero then messured around the rest and marked 100 200 and 300
