Topics I've Started
25 December 2008 - 03:33 PMI don't know how many of you are familiar with the marker. It is definitely one of the lesser known markers out there these days. It definitely occupies a small niche in the market, but after about as much research on the marker as I could get I think I found something that suits my needs perfectly.
It works excellently on CO2, has a single trigger, has a right feed (and the option for an offset vertical feed), is self regulating, requires close to no maintenance (doesn't even need disassembly since its operation is air tight), and its pretty unqiue. Also due to its bolt-less design it is technically impossible to for it to break paint in the marker.
It is entirely mechanical, weighs in at 2.3 pounds including the forgrip and a barrel, and is extremely compact. Each one is hand made by ICE themselves so you can order it pretty much however you want to, you get to deal with Jim himself. It isn't the fastest marker on the market capping around 9bps but that's pretty fast for my standards. It feels solid as a rock, maybe moreso than my Automag.
I regret that I do not have a barrel, air tank, or paint, but I should get some more pics and a video up within a week. I probably should have wiped it down before taking the photos, but I am throughly satisfied with the marker. Without further delay:
It came in a nice box with foam padding, a manual, a spare parts kit, and a barrel plug which happens to fit inside the foregrip (nifty). I can tell it was a very well engineered marker as there is no part of it left unused. The manual is also very thorough explaining exactly how it works. They mentioned some available accessories such as a sight rail which I might look into.
I'm still trying to decide which barre to get for it. Of all my barrels none are Autococker threaded. I might just go with a CP barrel, but Lapco and Palmer's are always contenders. Palmer's would be great, but I don't know if I would like to put a heavy barrel on such a light marker. Likewise, I think I want to try something a bit quieter than a Lapco barrel to compliment how quiet of a marker it already is.
