Dropping $$

Well, for 2 years my marq 7 has been sitting in my gear bag leaking down the barrel. For 2 years I haven't played paintball, partially between being busy and not knowing anyone down here at the time. I was too annoyed as well as unable to fix it, replacing o-rings had no effect. I finally did something about it! I looked for a good shop in the area that services bob longs and went out there yesterday and had a tech look at it.

30 minutes of the tech pulling it apart and trying various things. Found out the lube i'd used on the lpr and hpr had gummed up so he replaced that (going to chuck that tube of dow 33 out). Also replaced an o-ring on my engine since they like to cut themselves when you take the engine in or out. However he was unable to fix it and has declared that my poppet is gone (marq has a proficiency engine in it) He however was nice enough not to charge me for his services

So what did I do? What any idiot does. Got on pbn and found somebody selling a supercharger kit and I bought the damn thing! Also seems a whole bunch of people are selling pressure testers now! Bought one of those as well as a critical trigger! I couldn't find one of those to save my life the last time I tried to find one. Ended up having to make my own lpr gauge out of bicycle pump gauge and ****

Its not working yet

I just paid for the parts today on pbn, he hasn't even shipped them yet!

I've got my fingers crossed though and I bet it will work out. There is a guy at work who plays as well and he's been bugging me to go out with him. Can't just let the marker sit there forever and rust! The good thing though is the marqs seem to have held their value since I bought mine used. Paid $375 for it and I bet I could easily get around that still.

I've gotten a few people offering $250. I just ignore them because that's an insulting offer. It's still hard to find a superharged engine.

anyhow, let us know how this goes man. I'm also very curious about what went wrong with your stock engine. The guy at your shop said the poppit is bad?

Yeah he said the poppet is bad. I dunno, i may have messed it up when i was taking the gun apart one time. I also bought it used and i'm not very impressed by the previous owner. Back trigger frame screw is halfway stripped out and the trigger adjustment screws are like welded in place....

so what about throwing the stock parts in it and selling the supercharged engine separate? chances are the people who know how good it is are the people who already have the marker

I don't have a stock engine. I have a proficiency engine and I just bought a supercharger kit for it.
