Recommended
Upgrades:
combination of LP operation(using ottersccustoms.com as a guideline), acs bolt, and agitated loader for no ball breaks. ( you don't need break beam eyes before you can throw your barrel swab away)
Strengths: Regulator w/guage, decent stock barrel, metal trigger frame, vert feed, drop forward.
Weaknesses: Regulator consistancy, trigger side play, feed tube ears, sharp beavertail, unthreaded asa
Review: This is a great recball marker if you don't want to give batteries credit for your victories. It is very inexpensive to run low pressure(stock reg with home mods-$0). The regulator, however, could be more consistant and less restrictive, but considering the price of the marker, it does well. If you want to buy a new reg, you must also install a new asa. the trigger has a little side play, but nothing that can't be corrected with a few thin washers. The edges of the beavertail are pretty sharp as well, but I removed mine and cut and filed the cocking knob, reducing the distance it extends from the rear of the body. Also, the ears on the feed tube wore after about a month of use, loosening its hold on the marker and causing the loader to wobble a bit, but I replaced the washers on the screws that hold it in place and its been secure every since.
Conclusion: If you are a rec-baller looking for a marker with longevity and without batteries, this one will do you good. It's easy to maintain, and if you clean and lubricate it(it takes 5 mins) after each day at the field, who knows how long it will last? Perhaps even 2 years. I give it a 9 out of 10, because kingman has never manufactured a marker that I would describe as perfect when stock, but this one has outlasted every other marker I've owned(quite a few over the last 8 years), and it can be easily and inexpensively upgraded to perform well.
