Upgrades:
Laser eyes, Clamping feedneck, different regulator (Evil Detonator, CP)
Strengths: Unique paintball gun with in-line poppet.
Weaknesses: Uses DOW55 to swell the multiple o-rings
Review: Bob Long's marquee series of paintball guns are very unique; they use an in-line poppet engine that is reliable, quiet, and efficient.

However the usage of a grease-based lubricant, DOW55, may not be to every user's liking. Also there is quite a few o-rings to service.

The internals are well thought-out, however the body shape of the Closer is also quite different; while being larger than the preceeding models, it is the lightest of the Marquee models as well.

Very highly milled and sculpted.
Conclusion: While the Closer used to be the flagship of the Marquee series, it is still an excellent marker and good deals can be found for what was a $ 1200 gun.
