Review: Pros: This gun is incredibly smooth. I was really impressed with how smooth and snappy it was. It came with a dye ultralight for me so i don't know how the stock barrel is but I was geting +-2 on the chrono and there is practically no kick with this gun. It's fast too, but every gun I've had since my A4 fly has been fast.

You don't really have to pay too much attention to this gun. I would lube the bolt which takes about 15 minutes once every 2 months or so and not worry about it again. I never broke orings or got any leaks.

The thing I don't like very much about this gun is the lpr. You have to be very careful with adjusting the lpr. You're supposed to have a pressure tester which is about 60 dollars and it doesn't come with one. While adjusting the LPR you have to take the trigger frame off unless you send the gun to bob long to have it drilled. My LPR was higher than what it should have been so it was kicking and was chopping tons of paint. I turned it down and after that it shot like a dream but i'd rather not have to deal with that stuff you know? I'm used to egos where I just gas up and go and don't worry about anything.

It gets pretty bad efficiency. If you run a 45/45 set up you probably won't have enough air to finish the game if you shoot 4+ pods and a hopper. I run with a 68 though so I was always okay.

this gun is very quiet too which is cool. Sometimes in the snake I can take a couple snap shots real quick and sometimes people wouldn't even hear me for a little.

it's a good solid gun. it doesn't get great efficiency though, and it is relatively heavy.
Conclusion: it's a good solid gun. it doesn't get great efficiency though, and it is relatively heavy. I used to have an 06 ego and i would recommend the ego over the marq but egos are my favorite guns ever and i would have to say after shooting tons of guns, the marq is definitely better than the angels and matrixes I've owned.

If you really like the way spool valve guns shoot but don't want all of the hassle that comes with one, I recommend the marq. You won't go wrong with one, and they definitely shoot AWESOME, but i don't like the LPR system and i don't like the weight/ efficiency. the way the gun shoots though will definitely boost it's rating.
