KAOS PUMP (KP) brings all the innovations you come to expect from the AZODIN team to the pump market. Built on the KAOS chassis, the KP provides closed-bolt performance in an entry-level package.
The optimized valve and main springs of the KP give you the efficiency you need when you are out at the field. The pump action is smooth out of the box so you do not have to worry about breaking in the pump action. The KP features the innovative TRIAD Ball Retention System that prevents roll-out even when you are using the smallest of paintball.
With Cocker-threaded barrel, Ion-threaded feedneck and bottomline mounting for both straight screws and Dovetail you can customize your KP to your own specifications.
NEW SCHOOL FEATURES for OLD SCHOOL GAME
The Azodin Kaos Pump (KP) is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Phantom pump, obviously a superior marker but really isn't comparable due to price point.
Autococker pump, a better gun but not that much.
Velocity adjustment is good.
Pump action is good
Feedneck is subrate
This is a great pump for the price and I certainly recommend that you pick one up if you want to go to a pump game in your area. As stated above it is very accurate, simple and relatively light.
Downside is that you will have Roll-Outs. I played an entire day with both All Stars and Nightmare paint and both of them would roll right out of the barrel if I pumped and lowered the barrel even slightly. This talk on the advertisement about some Triad anti-roll system is complete bs.
Other than that and the crappy feed neck you really can't go wrong with this marker. It's the perfect choice for someone who wants to play around with a pump with out the investment. Additionally it has qualities that you wouldn't expect in such a cheap marker, conversely there are some qualities you would... you get what you pay for.
As stated above the strengths of this marker far outweigh it's weaknesses and it's a recommended buy for the casual pump player.
Smooth pump stroke
Barrel (see below)
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.
Good value for the money, and any shortcomings are easily solved thanks to industry-standard parts. Great intro gun for new pump players.
Phantom, Trilogy with Sanchez Machinery pump conversion, Proto Matrix 7, Spyder electra 09
Stiffi Switch 14" barrel
Powerlyte barrel kit
Pure Energy 68/4500
Vlocity Jr. with Gangster chip
Accurate and smooth pump stroke.
It's loud but if you put a reg it shoots quietly
I love the smooth pump stroke. Very accurate comparable to the phantom and the WGP trilogy pump. Some modifications required to get rid of the farting sound (just replace the back spring with a longer one from Spyders or Piranha's).
I added a Dye hyper 2 regulator and a proto on/off asa.
The marker surprised me several times with the accuracy and consistency. I was to consistently hitting goggles from 30-60 feet. Because of the consistency I was able to get a lot of one-shot-kills.
Update December 31, 2009:
We played under the rain in cold weather 6 degrees C. The marker was reliable and did not break down. I had to remove the hitman mod and just use the pump because it was becoming sticky under the rain.
Some people tried out the Azodin pump and was amazed at the consistency and how light it was. Still the best entry level pump for the money.
I highly recommend this pump marker. Great job Azodin! You get a lot more for your money.

For me, there were none, I think the farting is a plus.
I absolutely love this marker! With the J&J barrel kit, this thing shoots darts. I would reccomend using HPA with this marker or with any marker period. It's best that you get a barrel kit for this marker, because the o-ring on the barrel tends to break for most people, but not me. I actually prefer this over an open class phantom because of the balance and weight, the phantom feels odd and more like a toy while this thing just feels purely amazing.
Not to put the phantom down or anything, It's just my opinion. The milling looks good, it could be better but that is me personally. The double trigger is light compared to other markers like a JT-Tac5. You barely notice it when you're playing.
If you want to get rid of the farting, buy a spyder magnaport valve.
This gun is absolutely amazing! It's up there with the phantom.
A phantom costs 100 more, but if you put 100 worth of upgrades on this thing, it could possibly surpass the phantom. My setup in my opinion is better than any phantom.
tippman a5-not my style
spyder compact-backup gun
wgp synergy- :-(
azodin kaos pump
200rd hopper or micro 40 rd hopper(homemade)

i went in the rain to go paintballing today, i though , oh crap im gona get pwned using a pump, but i owned , and got two goggle shots, one it was with only 1 shot
me and my friend played a game, 2 pumps, verses 2 semis, and me and my friend owned them
i let a bunch of my friends try it, and they r thinking of switching over to pump
i love this gun, but dont use old paint, or it may crack in the barrel
ball retention system works awsome, and no balls fell out during the day
is fun and is good for people who have never played pump before
the only thing is that you get funny comments like
-so how many times do u pump it
-wow, it must be cheaper without using co2
-or the best quote of the day (looks at my friend) woooow......... its a tippman 98
This gun is accurate, but loud if you hold the pump while shooting
gass efficent(got like 650 shots off of a 12oz tank)
can be cleaned easily
smooth pump stroke
quiet when u dont hold the pump while shooting
some chops(probably because of homemade hopper)
guide for the gun isnt best, but shows how to take appart and clean the gun
nice gun for 150$
very nice and reliable
AWSOME FOR GETTING INTO PUMP!!!
