The affordable high-performance Vibe and SP-1 electropneumatic paintball markers from Smart Parts now feature select-fire capability.
Loyalhanna, PA – February 8, 2008 – It's no surprise that since their launch in October of 2007, the Vibe and SP-1 have gained incredible popularity. Both of these new markers from Smart Parts deliver high-end true-electropneumatic performance at a price that is affordable to first time players. A hammer-free design lets the Vibe and SP-1 shoot fast without the accuracy-robbing shake and vibration found in competing paintguns. The low-pressure operation and the relief valve in the Max-Flo R vertical regulator allow these markers to perform with compressed air, or more affordable CO2 which is perfect for the player who is just getting started, or who wants true-electropneumatic performance in their mil-sim marker.
While originally released in a semi-automatic only version, Smart Parts, Inc. is proud to announce that the Vibe and SP-1 are now multi-mode markers. In select-fire mode, players can cycle between single-shot, 3-shot burst and full-automatic firing at the touch of a button, right in the middle of the game. When tournament or field rules require it, these markers can be switched into tournament-legal semi-automatic mode. In this mode, they are hardware locked and deliver one, and only one, shot per trigger pull.
“Using the select fire mode has been fantastic,” said Smart Parts Sales Representative Sean Scott. As the captain of the Smart Corps Factory Team, Scott puts paintball tactics and equipment to the test in the real world, helping bring home the team's second consecutive national Scenario Paintball Player's League Championship with the SP-1. “There are times when full-auto is great, but then there are times when I need that perfect single shot during the same game, the select fire modes give me the flexibility to choose on the fly. Most other markers lock down into a single mode only, requiring tools to make a change. With our new select fire mode, I can go from full-auto back to semi with one button press, but when we play at a field that's semi-only, I can open my grip with a hex wrench and lock it down to 100-percent field legal.”
Multi-mode operation is now included in all newly manufactured Vibe and SP-1 markers and as a free upgrade for existing Vibe and SP-1 paintguns. Owners of single-mode Vibe and SP-1 electropneumatic markers are encouraged to either visit SmartParts.com or call Smart Parts Technical Support at 800-992-2147 to request an RMA number for their upgrade. When the upgrade is complete, customers will be called to arrange return shipping payment.
Shipping charges can be avoided by bringing the marker to a major paintball event with Smart Parts factory tech support such as the PSP or SPPL tournaments throughout the 2008 season.
Select fire mode will not be available in the UK, Australia or any other country where the law restricts markers to semi-automatic operation.
