Marq “Q” Perez
December 12, 2012
Marq is the newest addition to the Airsoft GI Marketing Team. He is very timid and quiet, but he is full of airsoft knowledge and experience. Marq has been playing airsoft for 5 years. Besides playing airsoft, Marq goes to college as a computer engineer major and likes to do tech work on his car and his own airsoft guns. Currently, Marq drives 1999 E36 BMW 323i Convertible, and he is quite a handyman himself. He can replace the fluids to as well as swap other major parts to increase the performance of his car.
Currently, Marq uses a fully custom M4, personally customized by himself. Internally, Marq put a lot of high quality parts, such as RiotSC, Modify, King Arms, Echo 1, Guarder, Hurricane, Deepfire, Bravo, G&P and Prowin. Externally, Marq chose Magpul MOE Stock, G&P buffer tube, Magpul ASAP sling adapter, tango down motor grip, Noveske Body, Daniel Defense Lite Rail, and a Noveske Amplifier. Marq assembled everything by himself, and his gun is currently chroned at 340 FPS.
Marq currently runs a BCT 3 Chest Rig for outdoor games. For indoor he usually just runs a battle belt with 2 fast magazine pouches and a dump pouch. His set up is light, fast, and agile. Taking only the necessity to the battlefield is his motto. In his mind, ounces lead to pounds, and pounds lead to pain. It is absurd to carry more than what he needs for any situations.
To give you a better understanding of Marq, I have interviewed him.
