Review: Well I have been looking into th eMarq series since they came out, and I finally got the balls to try one. I got rid of my tried and true DM6 and broke down and got a Closer. First thing I notice is that the box it got shipped to me in felt empty, honestly. I opened the box, and there it was. The anno was perfect. (I got the gloss red.) And then I picked it up and it feels as light as my 06 Ego, and that it saying alot since Egos have exposed bolts, and the Marq's is enclosed. Then I went and shot it w/ some left over from a tournament Draxxus Blaze. It has a bit of kick, but nothing you will notice in a game. And it is FAST! I was very surprised when I shot it how fast it was. I thought my 06 Ego was fat, but this BLEW it out of the water. The 4 eyes make a noticeable difference. Also, you may think the trigger looks weird, don't worry, so did I, but after walking it....It is set-up perfectly, doesn't bounce and is amazingly fast. There is nothing on this gun performance wise that let me down.

The only bad thing about this gun was the efficiency. I shot a full Vlocity on like 800 psi. After doing the math, that is like a hopper and 4 1/2 pods on my 70/45 Crossfire Stubby. Now it is horrible, but you'll probably have to fill after every game...But this gun shoots soooooo nice, that I hate to even mention that. Don't let the efficiency hold you back. And it had a little kick, but it hasn't been broken in or tuned yet, so that explains that.

BEST GUN I HAVE OWNED SO FAR!!! And oh yeah, it comes with every upgrade possible for a Marq stock from the factory!!! And the barrel kit that comes with it was very nice. Mine came with .688 and the .694 Backs and a 14" front. Couldn't get any sweeter!
Conclusion: This was my first Bob Long, and I have been missing out. I was a gun whore and have gone through about 15 markers in the last year, but this one is gonna make me stop whoring it shoots soooooo nice. And alot of you know how hard it is to stop being a gun whore. Will keep this one and stay in the Bob Long/Marq family for years to come. If you can afford it, get it! Spend the extra $200 over the Marq 7 to get the Closer, because all of the upgrades on it are worth WAY more then that $200!

the marq series markers actually have VERY VERY VERY good efficiency. My entire team uses Closers/Rappers/Marqs and we get between 8-11 pods and a hoppper off a 68/45. Just wanted to clear that up
