Viewloader Revolution W/ X-Board
Crossfire 3000psi / 68 ci compressed air tank
14'' JJ performance barrel
Barrel( stock is alright )
Regulator( has a little bit of a drop off )
Air hog, expect to play 2 games on a 68/3000 tank
Great gun for a spyder, price is kinda high but u get wat u pay for - 22bps, eyes, accuracy, easy to field strip.... If u leave it stock its alright but i would definitly add upgrades such as an on/ off valve, barrel maybe a freak or all american barrel, ur gonna need a fast hopper so i would get halo b or empire b, new reg stock reg has a little bit of a drop off after 13bps. Only down side i think is how much of an air hog this gun is.
Great product for the price... dont buy from kingman unless u wanna pay 600 dollars when u can get it for less than 450 on most sites

very good stock reg
ITS ONLY 330 ON PBGEAR
The drop forward
Reg needs breaking in
the raven primal in my oppinion is the most underrated gun that has ever existed. if u have a new barrel and a reloader B u will see it too. one day this guy with a timmy came up to me amazed that my gun was just as fast and accurate as his gun for only 330. this gun has very good accuracy, great speed, and awesome reliablility. (if i have/get this gun be sure to put locktite on the cupseal/valve pin, i made that mistake and paid for it) ... u really ne a fast hopper or u will fell restricted with this gun, i recommend the reloader B (i have it and love it), the drop on this gun makes it uncomforatible, i recommend a check it uni mount.kingman did a good job on the reg, it does need about 3000-4000 shots through it to make it perfect but for a stock reg it is very good.
I made a pbreview account for one reason, there is many incorrect reviews above me. this gun is pretty awesome. and all those ppl who said it chops like no tomorrow r wrong (unless u r using daraxxus rec paint, that stuff is horrible). but this gum has perfect accuracy, great speed, nice eyes, great reliability... i would recommend this gun over an ion ne day
Barrel(must as with all markers)
New Bottomline setup(macroline/on/off)
Fast (22bps w/ eyes)
Regulator(pretty good for stock)
Spare parts hard to come by
Limited Upgrades compared to spyder
Well I took it out of the box today and shot for a while and eyes were quite effective and it was shooting really fast and decently for me (I'm a novice player). Regulator was pretty consistent and I liked the gun overall but a electronic loader is a must.
I would recommend to any paintball player that wants to step up from a beginners gun.
Raven PrImal with a 16in Barrel my Back up is a Piranha Evo Special edition
Anti Chop Eye, Delrin Bolt, Shoots Over 20+BPS in Semi Auto Mode
This is a solid gun Spyders cannot keep up with the Primal. this gun has very good accuracy, great speed, and awesome reliablility good on air and looks good as well
the pull is quite light and easily walkable. The Primal is one of the best Lower priced maker i have had the pleasure to use and buy for the price it is not bad
the raven primal in my oppinion is the most underrated gun that has ever existed it is a Great marker and you can find one for under 200$ if your lucky the average sold price is around 350 or so but like i said if you realy look you can find it for less then 200 and it is well worth it I highly recommend it. I give it a 10 and A+++++++++++++++++++++
Smart Parts Ion - Sorry to break it to you, Ion kiddies, but this gun holds it's own against the Ion, stock. With the Primal T-board, I believe it would rival any Virtue'd Ion.
Various E-Kingman's - Obviously, this gun leaves any other Electric Kingman in the dust.
Empire Revolver Barrel Kit
Trinity Clamping Feedneck
eVLution III Loader w/Z-board
WGP 50/3000 HPA Tank
1.) HPA Tank - Do not put CO2 through this gun and blow the solenoid.
3.) Fast Loader
4.) Primal T-Board from Scenariodreams.com - Warning, you will become a God
6.) Grips - Die Sticky 3's
**The stock regulator is great, but if anything else needed upgraded after the previously stated items, it wouldn't hurt to pickup an Air America Vigilante, if they make one to fit.
Light compared to other Electro-Pneumatics.
Great stock regulator.
Can be a gas hog. Go LP.
- Speed - 9/10 -
This gun can really rip. A very short bolt path means lightning fast cycling. It really does stand up to the Ions.
- Reliability - 9/10 -
Like a true Kingman, when you pull this gun out of the package, you know it's going to work.
- Ease of Disassembly and Maintenance - 9/10 -
Easy to field-strip and maintain, the gun you want to have when something's wrong and the game's in 10 minutes.
Availability of Parts/Upgrades - 5/10
The biggest flaw to this gun. Since the Primal's introductory pricing was high, this gun never really caught on the first time around. Master Google-er's will be able to overcome.
Quality of Stock Parts - 8/10
The gun really does the rip out of the box. The Regulator is one of the best stock reg's I've ever seen.
Pricing - 10/10
If you can pick this up for less than $200 (common going rate), it's a steal.
Customer Service - 9/10
Kingman customer service has NEVER done me dirty.
Cosmetics - 8/10
The gun looks pretty mean. If dark and intimidating is the look you're going for, you've come to the right place.
When this product was released, the price was atrocious. It's now easy to track this gun down for less than the price of an Ion, a STEAL! Personally, I gave $150 for mine, used, and it already had been converted over to Macroline and the Trinity Feedneck. Until you've played with this marker, don't write it off as a great alternative to the pricey Angel's and Intimidators.

New Barrel, Halo/ Reloader B, New board/chip/switch from Scenario Dreams, and a big air tank, new asa, and a new trigger
Fast, hard to walk, air effiecent
Price, pick one up from E-Bay, and low retail.
-Good on air
-Easy to find on E-Bay
-To high of price
-Halo or Reloader B needed
-Can and will keep up with better guns
-No CO2, just air
-Can pick up a better board for it at Scenario Dreams
-Can chop paint with out it's eyes on
I definitely recommend this product if you love it, great gun, shoots fast, good on air. New barrel, board and asa is a must never use CO2. But there is a small market for the gun(since Raven is going out of business), so you got to make people want it, if you don't.

I love those gun for fun and enjoy. i bought those gun for my girlfriends. i got those raven primal in e bay for 250 which is good price! very worth it! i play with Raven several time and there no promblem. but when u get a stock Raven primal i recomment u to upgrade new barrel and Fast hopper

Kingman raven primal - stock
68ci 4500psi tank
30bps Fasta Loader
ummmmmmmmmmmmm........ i dont think it needs anything. shoots awome as stock.
- feels good
- Looks awsome
- dosnt break balls
The gun shoots awsome. Shoots very fast when you want it to. i own a raven primal and i still got it and use it in tourneys and i love it. it shoots awsome on the feild. as it is acurate and it has a good rate of fire.
The only bad thing is the maintanece of cleaning the gun. if you get hit on the gun you will need to undo all the screws and bolts to take the gun apart to clean.
Shoots awsome overall and they are a good value for money.
Only bad thing is the cleaning after a game but i like taking the gun apart and things like that so i will still give it a 10.
It is an Awsome guun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Doesn't really chop
Good stock barrell
Quick switching modes of fire
Minor breaks (easily fixed)
Little air hog
K good gun, works for me, broke couple times but nothing I couldn't handle, but overall fast, easy adjustments, quick mode switching, and good stock barrell. I have been successful with this gun and it also is decently durable. The first time I used it, I worked all over the place.
I bought this gun and was impressed by the nice trigger and walking abilities. I mean, this is no bob long or dye but is a good gun for under 600 dollars
Smart parts Ion, Eggy 2 with y-board, WGP 3000psi 50ci HP tank, Redz Clamping feedneck. Psycho Ballistics On/off drop. Progessive Barrel
I dont know, the one I used was a rental
It shot pretty good
Heavy, chops with eyes on.
Ok, so I used this gun as a rental, and I would have rather used the normal rentals. Its really heavy, it chops ALOT with the eyes one. I was not happy with this gun, it works Just like a spyder. the trigger is hard to walk, but it may not be ment for that, but what ever.
I was not happy using this gun, to me, it sucks. And I used this before I got my Ion. I would not get this gun, get an Ion.
