Paintball is a hobby for me, and I really enjoy it, but I'm not the kind to put tons of money into my markers. I'm happy with my mechanical markers for most of the woodsball that I play, but occasionally I'd feel very outgunned on some fields where electros were prevalent. Since all of my markers are Spyder barrel compatible, when I found the Rex R2 on ebay for about $80 delivered it seemed like it would give me a more competitive marker for some games.
When I recieved it and gassed it up for the 1st time it was leaking. I couldn't get it to stop. I realized I was having a hard time seeing what the actual pressure was set to, so I purchased a 600 psi guage. When I gassed it back up it read 550 psi, so turning down the psi to 400 stopped the leaking and now it works correctly.
Since the initial teething problems it has proven to be reliable and accurate. The trigger is very touchy and wobbles side-to-side a little, but for what I wanted it's ideal.
A great value for a fast 20 bps marker with Spyder compatibility. If you are comfortable doing your own maintenance I would recommend this marker
quote:Originally posted by 9813816 The rex R2 is only supposed to be adjusted between 325-400 psi, and if you read the manual you wouldn't of had this problem.
The only reason it was over to begin with was the stock gauge. The gauge makes it hard to tell what your actual pressure is with precision, and mine might have been defective. Replacing it with a $5 600 psi gauge solved my problem.
