more durrable than a tippman
if u play speedball, its got a heavy trigger
low BPS (not an issue)
Wow, i got this gun for free and it needed some work. I fixed it up for free and i love this gun. It is more reliable than a tippman. It is more custumizable than any other paintball gun on the market. You can also make many of the upgrades yourself with a drill press and a hack saw.
If you can find one that works for under $50, its a good deal, buy it, custumize it and woop some angle ass with it.
VM68, 16" SmartParts, Turbo Micro Boost exp.chamber, GasThruStock, remote line (and still heavy)
and more stuff to lightening :)
reliable, just like AK-47 (in my country it was known as paintball-Kalashnikov)
heavy.... heavy.... hard to find some upgrades (other than barrel)
this is my second marker :) (first was BrassEagle Tigershark)
Me and many friends have plenty of fun playing with VM :)
I upgrade my VM to a nearly all available parts and... sold out and buy a Automag :(
this marker is not for beginners - required to much of work with his (cleaning, lubing, adjusting)
This is marker for player-hobbist, who's plays for fun, regardless of Angels, Shockers and other elektric devices playing on the same field
as above - good marker for museum, and old skul players, and for telling some stories from early semi's years

It has very heavy look, and it is just oldschool, every more experienced paintballers played with this gun few years ago, and it is the first gun for some of these pb players.

It's BEAST. Get as dirty as you want.
Hard to find upgrades and after market parts anywhere but Ebay.
I always wanted one of these markers when I was a kid. Never could afford one til now. So I went on Ebay and got a vm-68 with a few upgrades on it for the low low price of 60 bucks.
It came with an Armson swirl barrel, AA x chamber and a VERY rare Black rain reg. Also a pro team's feedneck, and a trigger shoe.
I didn't have the valve tool so i had to take the barrel off to adjust the valve, which was kind of a PITA but not that big of a deal. Once I got the valve adjusted it shot like a dream with co2.
I was shooting eight inch groups or thereabouts at about 40 feet. I really need to get a stock barrel and see if the Armson spirals were hurting or aiding my shooting.
Trigger pull is fairly heavy, and don't expect to be walking the trigger. This marker shoots like a real rifle, has a bit of take up and let off in the trigger.
All in all I enjoyed the experience, and this is my play marker now. I wouldn't take it on a speedball field unless everyone else was playing stock class, but in the woods or in a scenario game this is a fine machine.
It's not the lightest thing in the world, and it's loud, but it's decently accurate, and it's nice to shoot a piece of paintball history that still works after all these years.
