New Machine Vapor?

I saw this earlier. I know nothing about them, but people seem to have some beef with Machine Paintball (judging by the comments):

Because their first gun was laughably terrible.

From my understanding, everything from their boards to customer service kinda didn't work.
I'm sure there are quite a few people (like myself) are waiting for them to prove themselves and see if it is a reliable system that won't fail on the field.

We will wait and see.

Don't forget about that loader that most people were waiting for too.

Didn't they released the hopper under a different name, So they did not have to make good on a failing brand. Had a built in crono or something.

The first ones were junk. My we had local guys get offered the marker for free if we would shoot them in tournament ball. But machine couldn't keep them working long enough to shoot. Hard Pass!

Why would they use the same name after not following threw on there promises? Take a page from SP and at least call it something different. Lol

I have conveniently forgotten about those as I don't remember seeing them become generally available. Didn't they release a few and were complete failures?

The RDR was terrible too. I took the tech class at PBE for it, a year later I still didn't get the one owed to me from the class, they finally just gave us a gift certificate. Kind fo happy it turned out that way because it wasn't a good design at all.

The LVL is what the Machine hopper became. I think it's kind of up in the air who owns Machine, it was a Spurlock company originally I think? So shadiness is baked into the product lol

Machine was run/owned by Mike Spurlock.

He has quite a history within paintball manufacturing....

Actually have the Machine Gear loader on my desk here. This morphed into LVL that G.I. now produce.

Spurlock and Italia have a long long history of working on projects together.
