Old (read as metal...)Hammer
10 round loader
barrel, something to sight with is a must have on this marker
Ability to customize
Hard to sight without a scope
Plastic pump arm
Overall a great pump. I have had no problems with the marker malfunctioning. I paid $12 for mine and so I love the price tag! After taking the time to sight mine in at 25 yards I am able to hit the target every time. It is accurate and with a silencer is a formidable opponent in a woods setting. If you want a cheap pump that works really well than get this one, if you can find it. I have played with several pumps now and I like this one about as much as the AM-P Illusion that I tried. With the right barrel and acc. this is a 10 marker.
I have now owned at least five of these. The metal handled ones (Hammer A) is great, but the Hammer P is crap... If you find one with a metal grip frame - buy it.
If you can find one get it or at least try it out for a game. If you like pump games then it is for you.

Well I just tried this Stone Cold Barrel on this gun. Well lets just say it made this Hammer more accurate than my brother's new Sterling. Yep I said Sterling. It doesn't have the light as hell pump and doesn't feel cheap, but to me, accuracy counts. I was hitting a 12in square board from 50 yards away, every time once I got the sight adjusted. The Sterling STP was basically stock but it had the diffuser eight venturi bolt. The Sterling was louder, but it has a more solid feel and it shoots straight most of the time. My Hammer has a slight curve but once you have the sight adjusted, it hits the little dot every time.
Finally, since the STP is more "refined" the velocity spiked and fell a lot since it was running on CO2 in 35 degree weather, but then again so was mine.
Great gun for the price, put a stone cold on this thing since the New Hammers have four hole venturi, it is as accurate as any Phantom or STP stock, and you pay less for a gun that you can buy any barrel you want. Even ones that don't fit with the pump because it has a sleeve that comes out so you can fit in a wide barrel

This was my first gun and really it was one of the most reliable guns I have used for under 300 dollars. Whether it was 20 below or 100 degrees, I have never had any velocity spikes or drops. The gun is fairly accurate ( with my setup, about as accurate as a stock Automag ). The best thing about it is that everybody underestimates you and that is where it bites them in the ass. Autotrigger works but not recommended for more than 10 shots because the valve can't keep up but for a 50 dollar gun( I paid 70 when they first came out), Overall it is a great gun and I would recommend it to anyone starting out or as a backup gun because it is so reliable.
Plastic Plastic Plastic
Safety doesn't work
Valve design is poor(only on the New Hammer)
Parts are expensive
Great gun for a great price, it is so cheap now, it is worth trying, if you can find it.
Great way to save paint.
More realistic feel.
There are many breakable plastic parts.
It eats through Co2.
The manufacturer barrel breaks balls pretty easy. I was using Diablo Hellfire. You think it's the balls? I don't.
The accuracy is off. I had to point it like straight up in the air to shoot at my target accuratly.
That's bout it.
I don't know. If u want a close quarters weapon and want to spend the money to get rid of the plastic parts and the barrel then this would be a great weapon. Otherwise I would tend to lean towards a Phantom. I tryed my friends hammer in the back field and it wasn't to great. I'm only getting it for my scenario team because I'm making a totally kingman team and I'm going to upgrade it until it is good.
Black Griffin with Expansion Chamber, High Volume Cell, and a Lapco Bigshot.
I'd strongly recommend another barrel... it sounds like a gasoline powered potato gun with the stock barrel.
If you can actually find this gun, it's relatively attractive, inexpensive, and accurate. The Silver of an off-silver, giving it somewhat of a unique look.
Few upgrades can be done without the .45 Frame Grip, the stock grip is pretty uncomfortable, and without wearing gloves, the cartoony-big screw towards the rear of the gun has a tendency to dig into your hand.
If you can actually find this gun somewhere, I would buy it. I don't believe it is in production anymore, but it's a great backup, and playing with it is a breath of fresh air from your standard semi auto.
This marker is amazing. With the awesome accuracy of a pump marker, and a great barrel, this marker will do the trick. You won't need to worry about upgrades either: Every thing is fine stock. One of the best things about it happens to be just that, you don't have to spend another $100 to make it work properly. I would recommend this marker for a player just starting, to a season veteran of paintball!
Well, there are down sides. If you are one of those "1 case= 1 kill" people, then you won't be too happy with this. Unlike Phantoms, it doesn't have an autotrigger. But hey, it doesn't need it. Also, you will have a hard as hell time trying to find the original (The model I own) without a powerfeed. The newer ones have cheap plastic handles.
I couldn't be any happier with this marker. It is a few years old, and still working perfectly. Get this marker if you can find one. It is a low cost version of the Phantom, and your opponents will regret underestimating someone with this marker.
It is extremely accurate and has perfect scope veiw that is built in the gun. it is really good for long distance and snipering in a feild or in the woods. it really shoots straight and far for such a small gun. it has so much power and no spin on the ball at all. it doesn't leak at all. it never eats o-rings at all.
The plastic handle twists and it feels like it is gonna break off but it is ok becuase i don't know of anyone who has broken the pump handle off of it.
The older verison of this gun is the best pump gun ever made. if you ever get a chance to buy it then take advantage of the opportunity. the new kingman hammer isn't as good but it is still ok i would give it a 7/10. the old one is much much much better.
Great gun. It is very accurate and packs some serious power. I shot a friend of mine with it and he had a welt for only god knows how long. Very durable and easy to handle. Pretty light wieght. Lets just say "It takes a wippin and keeps on kickin"
Is pretty loud and the pump is plastic. My scope tends to come losse sometimes. Do not use brass eagles in them though. They tend to get stuck and break more easly in it. Other than that nothing really.
This is a great gun for the novice or advanced player. I recommend getting it if you see it.

new barrel, stock barrel is loud, and not that accurate
red dot sight, it really works!
In my case, truly inexpensive, 25 bucksoff ebay for gun , 9oz, mask, 45 rd hopper and 100rd hopper.
Once I put on a different barrel and redid the valve and main spring(any nelson based spring will work) the hammer shot great. straight, far, and consistant- 289-290-287, over the the chrono.
Ive used it the sniperway with ghilliesuit and all, with the surpressor, very quiet and doesnt give away your position.
I also tried a normal game with it, but when you go three on one cause your back up splits, you dont have a good chance against semis, but it was still fun.
There are only two things really wrong. It really needs a new barrel, and the pump handle is plastic, so Im a little more carefull with it. Other than that, if you want to try a new style of play, and save paint, get this pump. like everyone says, only 49 bucks at 888pb. buy one and try the pump game its great.
This was a great deal and a great way to improve your game! I think every one should get a pump of some kind to hone their skills more, and thats what it does. The Kingman hammer is an inexpensive way to go and get up your game, whatever type game or skill you are. So pick one up and play the old school way!!!!
