When I first received my Marq new it did not work, when I aired it up it leaked badly out the barrel. I knew then it was the poppet not sealing. So I decided to contact BLAST, and yes they took very good care of me and no I am not a shop just a consumer. They milled out the LPR slot and the trigger frame, the installed the pillow bolt, and also the 4 Lazer eyes. All of this only cost me $100 including the testing tool. Blast also installed a new HPR and a new firing engine and board for free. They did this very fast, they answered all of my question with a lot of care. I give the customer service an A+ no company has been that nice and caring to me before untill now. So I got it back in a couple of weeks first impression of the gun at looking at it, the gun is a little bigger than I thought and I little heavier also. The anodizing has a few flawes. Dont care for the LED light its too small and sometimes hard to see when you are playing. The board adjustments are a little pain since you have to take the grip off to adjust the board by using dip switches. The board has little adjustments. The feed neck is by far the best feedneck in the industry, I love the wedge style and its dug into the body to keep it more compact, smart idea. Now shooting the gun, I aired it up again and this time no leak, thats good news I put my Halo on and unlimited BPS and ramp on the gun. On the crono, it was consistant but the reg need some shots throught to get more consistant. This gun rips I mean rips. It seems a little louder than I like, but its still quieter than a timmy. Very little kick and extremely accurate. I shot two cases through this gun and not one break in the barrel or in chamber, I must say the pillow bolt makes a huge difference. Easy Maintenece the pillow bolt makes sure of that. Now on the 4 eyes, I agree its a nice feature, the board detects the ball falling and when the ball sets in the chamber for maximum bps, you will hardly chop or break working with the pillow bolt unless you are using some terrible paint. The lazer eyes is not worth the money and the reason why i say this is because you can hardly see when the lazer comes on, when you pull the trigger you will see and red beam come out of one eye not two or four just one, I thought that was a little weak. Bysides the board will tell you wich eyes is not working if you have the 4 eyes. So the standard for eyes is you best bet.
Awsome gun for the price. It need some factory upgrades to make a nice shooting machine. Very accurate, very quiet, nice feedneck. Little heavy, little big. I do recomend this gun to anyone from beginner to pro cant go wrong with Bob Long. The customer support alone is enough for me.
