One thing that amazes me about paintball is just how much each player can fix, repair, replace, modify or just plain tinker. Manufacturers rarely lock down their products like other industries try to do (like garage door openers, who knew?) and instead encourage players to repair their own markers in the form of parts kits. Heck, even my old Empire E-Vents mask can have just about everything replaced on it. And it’s for these reasons this section exists, to show you what’s inside your markers, how they work, what makes them tick, and to show you how you too can perform basic, mid level and even advanced maintenance on your own gear.

So keep checking in as we explore each marker’s deepest, darkest secrets, put them through torture tests and show you how you can save money by replacing your own O-rings!
