blue victor w/ sprint frame and 12 volt revvy w/ x-board
tippmann 98 custom w/ 14 in smart parts proggressive
sprint or other electronic frame, new barrel, some kind of foregrip, just a preference but take off the sight rail because it looks better and the sight rail is plastic and likely to brakd off
light, accurate with the stock barrel, comes with a drop forward
no foregrip, stock trigger is loooooooooooong, uncomfortable to hold when stock
this is a pretty good gun for a newbie or for a somewhat experienced player like me wanting a lighter gun without breaking the bank. i got this gun because it was cheap and it had many good features. when i bought it i had planned to buy an electric grip for it because i wanted to go electro.my first game using this gun i got more people out in that one game than in the whoal day. i think it was because this gun is alot lighter than my tippman and it had a double trigger so i was able to tuck tighter and shoot faster
in conclusion i had no major problems with this gun and at the reasonable price it has, you cant go wrong. if u are a noob looking for his first gun or somewhat experienced and want something different for a change then buy this. for the price and features this is the best bang for ur buck. i give it a ten because kingman did a very good job on this one
16" CMI TruFlight
removed "venturi" (it isn't technically a venturi at all)
Regulator or Expansion Chamber or Anti-siphon tube!
no protruding bolt handle
No expansion chamber
bolt scratches on internals
Overall I like this marker a lot. I got it for under $70. It can shoot very rapidly and accurately. There only drawback is the lack of an expansion chamber. When I used this in cold weather I was having problems with "snow."
Also, the bolt has scratched itself. This doesn't cause any problems, but I expect more out of Kingman. I sand down the scratches frequently to maintain smooth operation.
Disassembly and reassembly are a breeze. The finnish is hard, bright and flawless. It never chops balls
A lot of people said the sight rail is useless, but with a little innovation there are several ways to deal with this.
This is a very good entry-level marker especially if you can get it in the $70 range. Check online. Your first upgrade needs to be something to keep liquid CO2 out of the tank, whether it be an anti-siphon tube ($10) or switching to HPA ($200+) or anything inbetween.

Spyder Victor body- Sprint ESP frame, rear cocking, shocktech super fly bolt, new hammer, icon foregrip, icon expansion chamber, drop, 12" J&J 2 peice full tilt barrel, 12v Revy with X board
If you are new to paintball id say just get a barrel, bolt., and practice, but the thing is that there is a limitless amount of upgrades a victor or any other spyder can have, its all just personal preferance, If you want, just buy a barrel, or go all out and by a new board with eyes that will get your gun shooting at a insane rate of fire.
-Very low price
-VERY upgrade able
-decent performance (for price)
-All probs a $50 dollar gun will have.
I got this gun just over a year ago when i was just getting into paintball. At the time it was a kick-a$$ gun since it was my first semi-auto. Then as i got better i just upgraded the gun to keep it up with me. Now i got a decent little victor but im getting better and i need a gun to keep up with me, so im looking into getting a 04 cocker. But, for a 50 dollar gun you couldnt ask for more. It shoots pretty straight and can be upgraded as you would like it. Ive seen a victor with the IS board and eyes installed that was capeable of 36 balls per second, running at about 200 psi, and had a AA barrel. That was one hell of a victor. The point im making is that this gun has the potential of being a very high end gun. I find it pointless to do all that to a spyder when with that money you could just buy a high end gun but other people may like to keep the spyder around.
But, on to the stock victor. Like i said, its only 50 bucks which is perfect for a new player looking to get into the sport. Its simple and easy to maintain and with alittle care it wont break down on you. If your upgrading it id say one of the first upgrades should be a delrin bolt, the stock will destroy the internals of your gun. However, dont expect anything special from this, its just a little mechanical blow-back gun. its not gonna get 20 bps or anything, and it wont be dead accurate, but it will get you into the sport for sure. It got me in and now im hooked.
I highly recommend this gun to a player geting into paintball. A good little gun for only 50 bucks. (the price of most barrels is more)

Spyder Shutter with a Teardrop Barrel a 68cu/3000psi 3A nitro tank and a Phsyco Ballistics drop forward.
A new grip frame.
1. Extremely Accurate.
2. Very Light.
1. Plastic grip frame comes loose
I think this is a pretty sweet litte set up for its price it is very accurate a looks cool to. The only thing I would probly change is the grip frame because it is plastic. The grip comes loose very easiley and can break. The gun is easy to maintain an clean but most importanly it is a good gun for a small price tag.
This is a great gun and at a great price it is really affordable.

Tippman 98 Custom
old pump style markers
12 oz CO2
8'' and 16'' barrels
Works well for the price
easy to field strip and maintain
Not as fast as other guns
can chop paint
The Spyder Victor was the first paintball marker I bought for myself. Because of this marker I am now dedicated to Spyder. It is a lower end marker, but for the price I don't believe you can find a single marker out there to match it. It works well, its dependable, easy to use, all in all a great gun for beginners. Its also very easy to upgrade, althought I never bought anything besides a barrel because I moved on to a different marker, the Spyder Rodeo. For any beginners out there I think this is an awesome awesome gun. I've had it for 3 years, and havent had any trouble at all. With my 16'' Tiller barrel its accuracy was actually competetive with my buddies Tippmann 98 Custom, of course it doesn't shoot as fast...but it sure put a lot less of a dent in my wallet.
This is a great gun for beginners, or those looking for an inexpensive marker for rec play. For whats its intended to do I'd give it a 10. For overall the whole of markers out there its probably closer to 4-5...but for this price, I'll knock it back up to 9. If you have the extra money and are serious about paintball...go more expensive...Spyder Rodeo, or Imagine are great guns. If you don't the Victor will treat you well for many years.
Comes with evrthing you need.
Does not chop balls
None , I cannont find any flawes,besides that it has a plastic handle.

Spyder Victor Paintball Marker
History- I purchased this marker at a local sports store for $50. So I picked 2 up for both of my sons. For the price I can't think of any other gun that comes close in reliability, customizing ability, light weight, style,etc...
Accuracy- It shhots fair with the stock barrel as long as you use quality paint. That is at close range by the way. I'd say up to about 40 ft away. after that if you want decent accuracy you'll need to buy a new barrel.
Speed- It is no speed demon but it is a semi-auto so its not too bad. I like the trigger pull much better than a Tippmann trigger pull. It is a much lighter pull so you should be able to achieve a faster rate of fire.
Reliability- Most of the time when we played we used co2 on these and they shot fine and had no problems. Most of the time we waited for everyone else to fiddle with their guns. It sometimes got boring; waiting. I think out of the whole time we owned the markers we replaced the cup seals in both guns 1 time over a period of about 2 years. All we ever did was clean them and rarely ever oiled them.I would say we were close to abusing them-just not deliberately.
I highly recommend this for begginers and anyone interested in playing without electronics.
WGP Trilogy Pro Stock
68cu 4500psi PMI
Better Drop Forward
Put an expansion chamber on it
Cheap and comes with a drop forward (altought it's small).
I recommed this gun to anyone who is just starting for tired of borowing guns from friends or renting them. This gun is very cheap, I got mine for about $40, and the stock barrel is not terrible but a new one would improve it a lot. It is a very loud gun without a new barrel and when I played with it the little plastic elbow that comes with it kept on coming off my gun.
If your looking for a gun to start with this is a gun for you, because it is cheap and easily upgradable.
