I see what you are saying, but after a couple of years they had the most effective user manual of any marker I can thing of. Literally every possible problem has a diagnosis on the manual, almost all can be solved by replacing the power tube o-ring. You also have to keep in mind, these problems were due to using co2 w/o an expansion chamber or remote.
After the proliferation of HPA, I don't think there has been a more reliable marker.
