PMR SE- kind of similar, but not....
Electra- "poppit" but still not that close.
2008 Bob Long Rapper w/ SC Proficiency Engine, OLED Tadao Yakuza USB, 4C Laser Eyes, Kila Magnetic Detents, Kila Blue/Black Carbon-Fiber Weaved Eye Plates, Warped Sportz Delron Trigger, Deathstix Barrel kit V2, Gear Drive ASA, and a Crossfire 68/4500
nothing needed out of the box. If you choose I would say the SuperCharged Proficiency Engine would be number one on my list. Maybe a short reg if you want.
consistency(after breaking in the reg.)
consider getting the LPR notched, not a have-to.
Out of the box the gun was great. Most of the time you take a gun out and after the first couple of days using the gun you start to make that upgrade list. I can honestly say that it took me a while to really justify the cost of upgrading the Rapper because I couldn't imagine how much of a difference it would make. I finally broke down and started transforming the Rapper out of pure boredom and that the SC Proficiency Engine got some really good press. I never want to sell this gun, and I've been shooting spoolies for almost 4 years now. I think the Marq platform really is the best mix of the poppit efficiency and the spoolie shot. Very unique and very nice. This is a great gun to get used for a really good price and then turn it into a project gun, building it up to whatever you like and you will be pleased. Good back-up, GREAT primary. I'm hard to convince and am always left unsatisfied with guns that I test or research. 100% happy with the money invested and I have no doubts this gun will be with me for a long time. Bob Long is full of win.
for 2010 I would suggest buying a used one for cheap and turning it into something you can truly call your own. These guns have great out-of-the-box presence and have HUGE potential with the ups available now. Get one. Just do it. Gets a 9 for that LPR notch business. I didn't do it cause it's too much of a hassle for me.
