Review: I own one, and would buy one again. I agree with reviewers here and elsewhere who say that if you just want to get into pump without much expense or hassle, the Kaos Pump is the way to go. It's a quality pump gun, ready to go out of the box, at a reasonable price. If you think you might like one, just buy it. You'll probably love it, and if you don't, you can get most of your money back in resale.

I don't like the feedneck. Which isn't to say that it doesn't work...so far it has. It just seems crappy, with the jagged machining on the tension ring. The good news is that you can replace it with any Ion-compatible feedneck, so no big deal.

In today's world of smaller paint, I think the stock barrel is non-optimal. Even with the proprietary ball retention system, I got rollouts, and a lot of variation in muzzle velocity. The barrel bore is too big, and I suspect the o-ring setup introduces inconsistency. But again, an industry-standard cocker thread solves this problem. Coupled with my Freak kit and a .679 insert, the gun shoots darts, chronos +/- 5, with no rollouts...and that's with the gas-through grip, not a reg.

I run my KP with a Winchester 50 round hopper and a 13/3 HPA tank. It's a very comfortable and compact setup for speedball.

Oh, and regarding "farting." Yes, it sounds a bit fartish. If you care, you can replace the valve and spring and slap a reg on it, and that will probably clear it up. Personally, it doesn't bother me. I kinda like having a distinctive sound.
Conclusion: Good value for the money, and any shortcomings are easily solved thanks to industry-standard parts. Great intro gun for new pump players.
