VM-68, most Indian Creek non-electrics, Mini-cocker. The Vector with its' incredible balance and superior craftsmanship makes it by far not just another mass produced marker. The gun is far too unique to compare, though it has a vaguely similar front end construction to the Autococker.
Vector, of course! Palmers Stabilizer on a dropforward apparatus. I have the original AP gas thru stock but seldom use it. I also have switched to the vertical feed barrell and so far have had mixed emotions. It looks sweet but seems to chop paint, though that may be the field paint causing that.
Highly reccomend the cupseal switch as well as a regulator. It NEEDs a regulator! Nitrogen seems to operate it a little better as my front reg gets a little frosty when going to town.
Where do I start?! Loud...FREAKING loud! Everyone knows where YOU are on the field. That is usually fine because the Vector can slug it out with the best electrics out there not too mention all the other garbage. Trigger pull: Short ant crisp, also, the bolt does not wait for you to release the trigger to recock.
Head turner: It will get attention, followed by complaints about the "fully auto electric" out there. I can't count the number of times someone has complained about it. It's not colorful! That's right, just the way paintball was intended. Flat black with a H&K/mini shotgun type appearance, it definately intimidates.
Recoil: what recoil? For as much noise as it makes, the gun barely twitches when fired. Accuracy: speaks for itself with its beloved stock barrell. What other marker can you say that about?
Solid construction: You must realize when you hold a Vector, you hold a piece of art, Ok, except for the front plastic shroud that was done a little chinsey.
A little finicky. I have always had a few problems with velocity on both of my vectors. If you can dial it in and it takes, you're golden. After sampling mine with a Nitrogen tank, I may have to get one, consistancy and no ice forming on the reg was a welcome addition.
Get one and be prepared to be picked first on a team. I'd tell you where to get one, but I have yet to see another and that's how I like it. Unique and original. This gun defines innovation; and if Air Power had not collapsed under fairly poor marketing and a saturated Spyder market, it would still continue to dominate with perhaps an even better version for todays fields.
because he and his daddy's henchmen are spiraling this country into the crapper. He violatesand refuses treaties, declares war so he can feed his appetite for oil, and is literally destroying Iraq. A few examples of his corrupt ways- He gave the contract for Iraqi oil to Cheney's old company Halliburton, without letting other companies bid for it (which is standard fair procedure.) He refuses to speak to the families of killed british soilders without the families undergoing a screening process. He lowers air pollution standards. He breaks campaign promises. He wasn't even elected fairly, for God's sake (gee, notice that his brother was governor of the controversial state in the election- kiinda coincidential, don't you think?
The list goes on. Because of Bush, 17 american gis have commited suicide in Iraq. How can we seriously trust a man who once (incorretly) identified Africa as a country, and who invents words? Strategery wasn't a word until he came into office.
In closing, let me end with a short, but sadly realistic story that sums it all up:
Three microsurgeons are having lunch. One is bragging about his accomplishments.
"I once reattached all 10 of a man's fingers. It sure took a while, but he's playing piano for the Philharmonic tomorrow!"
The second microsurgeon:
"yeah, that's nothing. I once reattached a man's arms and legs after a car crash, and he's running the 100m in the Olympics next week."
"That's nothing. I once helped a man who had been hit head-on by a freight train while riding his horse. Al I had to work with was a horse's butt and a cowboy hat, and now the guy's President!"
I'm sure a mod will tell us to move this discussion, and they'll certainly be justified in doing so. I just wanted to vent some rage...yes...
Well then if Bush should be talkin to the british families then should the monarchs of Britain be talking to American Families. It's not Bush's fault about the suicidal gi's. The pressure and fear of the war were too much for them and they commited suicide so it isn't bush's fault. The army gets thousands of pusses each year who can't take boot camp and leave then the ones who get by and have to go into war pu$$y out and commit suicide.
Hmm. Well, if Tony Blair would visit America, then he would probably meet with the families. And, let's end this rather endless discussion. PS If war is Bush's fault, and soldiers commit suicide because of war, then suicides are Bush's fault. AB+BC=AC.
hey man if were going to discuss politics(not that its wrong, i actually like them) then listen 2 rush Limbaugh or neal boortz or Matt drudge and just call them...well if ur a democrat then i wouldnt exactly call them u might det chewed out.
One question have any of you read a nice little book by Paul Oneil you might see a few thing you don't see on, oh lets go with CNN. Also Bush and Kerry ( Forgot how to spell it is that correct? sorry) are based on two seperate values. Bush is for eliminating taxes for the "Richer" side of the country allowing them to not have to pay Mr. Uncle Sam so much money and keep more. While Kerry on the other hand if fighting for the average citezin. He wishes to have medicare, Educational programs and otehr stuff.
So the country is split between Middle Class, and High class. Bush= Richies, while Kerry= Mid Americans. In the end who gives a damn, I've watched Bush since his election and what has he done with the money for our economical recovery? Poured it into a military fund. Don't get me wrong the Military is a good investment but putting so much money into the fund that specialists say it will put the country back another 10-20 years in paying all of the money back. Also I see your reviews were written in 2003. And all of this was started by a simple recognition towards paintball being Militant. WHO GIVES A DAM ( Mispelled so as not to be erased.) In all factors drop the subject. And just watch the polls this year. I wish I was old enough to vote. hehehe
