I reccomend buying a marq series gun asap. they combine bob longs already amazing grip frames with his new bolt/ram design that has created a sick gun. Im putting a pat on Bob's back for this one. Haven't chopped and am pretty sure i never will with the pillow bolt kissing every ball on the way out of the gun and my .693 bore doing the rest
The First Closed Bolt Gun That Truley Has Worked Amazing For Me, More Reliable Than A Dye As Well As A Better Weight Balance.
so i picked this gun up about a 2 weeks ago, from delta paintball ( Zach longs store) and at first i was really impressed. Perfect anno, nice ballence. but the one thing i didnt like was the trigger, it fealt to hard, so i went back to the shop and talked to zach about it, he said that he had cut the spring in his gun shorter, for a smoother softer pul, so after modifying the trigger the marker was perfect, i went to my back yard and filled my halo with some xball gold, and boy is this thing fast and accurate,i was shooting ropes, all of which were ball on ball. but when i tried to ajust my setings i found out that the only things you could ajust were the Debounce, the dewell and the firing modes, and that was still limited.
All in all, this marker is great, every thing you could want in a marker ( ecept of corse the adjustibility) its not the most expensive marker either, but its deffanately not the cheapest
ion max'd, Viewloader Vlocity, red and black freak barrel virtue board. sling blade trigger new bolt. contract killer grips
Upgrades?? who needs em with a gun like this
Weakness?? timmy, ya right.
price? but thats not weak to the actual marker
I got to test this at my local store and i was very impresssed by, well everything. Lets start by saying the gun is no longer the onyx it is now the marq 6. second this trigger is soo amazingly light no adjustments needed. the gun is super light and very very slik looking. the other thing this gun has no internally moving parts giving it absolutely noo kick at all. when i shot it i couldn't belive it. there wasn't even the slightest vibration in the gun when u shot it. GREAT MARKER
Its a Bob Long marker, there is nothing better top of the line paintball markers. this gun is down right amazing, if you got the money buy em

Bob long Onyx with Bob long on/off asa and Freak Kit
None really this gun rips right out the box wish it came with an on/off asa
This gun rips right out of the box. I got mine with a Bob long on/off asa the only thing the gun really needs. It looks like a DM7 but is lighter. It is also fast i mean this thing rips ,but becareful not to have the trigher two tight though because it will bounce. The Onyx also has no kick it literally is smooth as all hell. Because of the redesigned bolt and ram the gun is more accuret and small. So in play the onyx actually puts the ball right where you aim i have a freak on mine but you really do not need it because it is so accurate
Get this gun it is awesome it is the best on the market right now
probably barrel. Only shot one type of paint, and at tourneys, who knows?
Personal preference really.
hard to say. Only tested a few pods with it
I've never really wanted a bob long because all of his Timmy's had a design that was a little too 'look-at-me!' for my tastes. To me, they look like abstract sculptures with barrel out of one end, and that never really applealed to me. I prefer a subtler, more sleek design. Don't get me wrong, all of Bob's guns are great, but the sdesign is something that always separated it from, say a DM5-6 or an ego (Though the new 07 ego does seem to have a very timmy-like design). Anyways, with the advent of the Onyx (marq6), I actually considered getting a bob long.
At first glance, the onyx seems a lot like a shocker with a bit more milling. I first thought it was a spool valve-operated marker, because of the look of the body, but the tech at the shop quickly stated that it was a poppet valve marker. Strapping on a VLocity and a LP 68/45 tank, the VL full of marballizer, I was able to shoot reasonably fast, considering my slow fingers. While a 45 is my ideal tank of choice, the 68 felt very tight and I was able to do some snap shooting comfotably and quickly.
I will only award it a 9 as I have never been able to actually test it in a game. When that happens, you can expect my rating to go up from a 9 to a 10.
With some new looks and some new technology under the hood, the Onyx seems like a very solid addition to Bob's lineup of markers. If you are like me and have never really like bob's markers, then I encourage you to check this one out, and if you are a longtime fan of Bob's guns, then you probably already have one.

And 4 eye upgrae if it didnt come with it
But the gun prettymuchrocks stock.
Very little Kick
Compared to my timmy i found no weakness...
Well one of my teammates just got a brand new Onyx from Delta Paintball. It was pretty sweet. Its Olive and he had a 14 inch stiffi on it. Well mid gamemy gun was chopping and he ran me his gun. As soon as I held it i was satisfied. Then I started shooting it and WOW! It rips! And my alias chops A LOT! So being able to hit what I was shooting at was awesome! I ended up getting 3 G's that game. Im getting one soon!
The best gun Ive ever shot. The second I held it I was happy. Definatly check this gun out.
This gun is so nice, it's like a dream, the four eye thing in a way is kinda cool, and out there, but really uneccesary. I mean you will never chop now for sure, but its kinda over the top doing it, in the fact that the duel break beam eyes work fine. Other than that this gun is unbelievable, and really nasty. The combonation of lightweight, super fast, and air efficient, you can never go wrong, other than that it looks great too.
Buy this sweet marker, it is one of the greatest guns to hit the market, and will change the paintball industry for sure, everyone is going to copy the four eyes now, just like they copied the idea of eyes from bob when he made those way back when. My point being this marker owns, buy it. Thank you bob for another great piece of art.
This gun from what I've seen is a great gun. It is lighter than most timmy's and is very fast. It's not really that different from other timmy's but it still rips. I love the milling on this gun. It beats all the other timmy's on its milling. A barrel and a feedneck would be the upgrades i suggest. It is extremely air efficient too. I shot 2 pods through it and only used up 200 psi. That is one huge advantage it has over other timmy's.
Overall a great gun. There are only a few upgrades needed on this gun. Not that much different from other timmy's but still a good gun.
Stf Shocker to long to type out
06 Pevs Ego - Orange SpitFire Bolt
4 Laser eyes
This Gun is amazing. I took it out of the box and just fell in love with the gun. The Diploid Switches are easy and only takes a second to change the modes, debounce, Dwell, to Cap or un Cap it. I Put on my Lp tank and only had about 1200 psi left in it. I went threw a hopper and 1.2 before it ran out of air.
From BobLong so great product and quality
Easy to Maintain
Price But its worth it
Weight - After just shooting an ego it does feel a little heavy but you get used to it.
this gun is Amazing, if you have the money go out and buy one
