Review: Since day one this marker did not function properly. All the paintballs where getting jammed as they where coming into the breech. So I then purchased an evloution ll hoping a faster feeding loader would do the trick. I got the loader; gas up the marker went to shoot and nothing. I tried numerous times and still nothing (note the battery was brand new). After this I tried to adjust it see if that was the problem, but no now this time when I go to fire the marker it shuts off and the battery is still new at this point I even tried other batteries to make sure. Well now after trying numerous times to adjust and with no luck I gave up. Packed it up and sent it to M3 for repairs.

Okay it has now been return from M3. Barrel full of paint and a few scratches on the marker I'm not too happy right now. Go to put a battery in and discover that the battery connection wires are burnt. I then speak to someone at M3 told them what was wrong and that I no longer what there product. So right now everything is ok. They tell me they will send ups the pick it up and as soon as they get it they will contact the company that I purchased it from to send my refund.

Now a few days later I come home to see a nice package from M3. Well look they returned it to me GREAT! First I sent an e-mail wondering why it was sent back. So now Iím looking over the marker. All wires have been replaced, but more scratches on the marker and the screws that hold the on grips are stripped. Ran my last 150 rounds through it and it seemed okay, but still wanted a refund. After this I spoke to someone about the problem. They wanted to see it so I go and get 1000 rounds to test it again. First 100 rounds good, next 50 or so rounds good, then I get. Pull the trigger nothing I then fan the trigger and nothing. I then looked at the display to see itís not on. Turn it back on pull the trigger and it shuts off (this is once again a new battery). I do this about 15 more times and nothing. So right now Iím waiting on a response from them.
Conclusion: Extremely disappointed with their Products and Customer Service. For an extra 150 you can go get for self something a lot more reliable such as automag, autcocker, or bko. As for me I will never use or recommend any M3 products to anyone.

- dude, your circuit board is f-ed up. i agree that m3 (now part of odyssey intl) support is not the best. BUT, if the service reps are not helping out, JUST BUY A NEW BOARD.

that is all...
