The Kingman Victor II paintball marker is constructed with a mid-cocking bolt, a 2nd Generation Venturi bolt and a low-pressure chamber reliable performance in the field. A contoured soft grip and double trigger make it easy to hold and fire and anti double feed helps it to keep firing smoothly.
The Kingman Spyder Victor II is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Tear Drop Barrel
Stock everything else
A new barrel can always help, but this gun worked great for me as stock
Very accurate at stock
Chops a mid-grade ball here and there
In my opinion this is the best Cheap gun out there. The Victor 2 was my first Paintball gun and I loved it. I almost had trouble upgrading to a Rodeo because I liked the Victor 2 so much. I couldent believe how accurate the gun was for being that cheap and all stock. For 80 bucks at Sports Authority or Dicks this gun is a steal. If you are a beginner then I fully suggest this gun. Stay away from the Blue though for woods ball it can be easily seen.
for 80 bucks you cant beat it. I suggest this to anyone who wants to buy a gun for under 100 bucks. I give it a 9 overall but its a 10 in its price range.
Tippmann 98 - much better
Viewloader Triad - not as good
BE Eradicator - definately not as good.
Easy field strip
Barrel is junk
Plastic trigger frame
The Victor 2 was a contender for being my first gun. The price was very cheap and I was able to test it to see if I liked it. Did I approve of it? To put it simply, it didn't win me over. For starters the the barrel was probably the worst I've used; It's very loud and very inaccurate. The gun even would chop on occasion and I don't want a mechanical gun doing that. The gun is easy to field strip, but I didn't like to mess with maintenance all that much. The plastic trigger frame is a real downer though as plastic fatigue is a possibility. I also thought the trigger pull was too long and the trigger itself was not comfortable.
For the price it's better than the VL Triad, but it's worth spending more money to get a better marker. I did that by buying a Tippmann 98 and am glad that I did.
It's an okay gun, but a little more money gets you something much better than a Victor 2.

Tippman 98 custom, ViewLoader Genesis, and an Angel 05 Speed. The Tippman and Viewloader seemed very similar to the spyder while shooting, which makes me wonder why the spyder is 1/4 the price of a Tippman.. As expected the Angel was a tad better, not really a comparison.
Spyder Victor II with a 14" TearDrop Barrel, $5 PMI hopper, 12 oz co2 with buttplate
A new barrel, pretty much all in my opinion
I was first exposed to this gun when I rented it while out playing for the first time. I had no problems with it what so ever and started to look around at buying a paintball gun. I bought it as my first gun a week or two later, after going paint balling again and renting a Tippman and borrowing an Angel. When I first got the gun out of ther package and took it out to shoot it was fairly loud and also, fairly accurate. I got a new 14" TearDrop Barrel and tested it again. The gun was practically silent and much more accurate. I have not yet had my gun break down on me, and it almost never breaks paint in my barrel.
I reccomend that if you are new to paintball and need a marker, you can't get a better one in the $50-70 range. With a couple mods you will be 'ballin' like a pro. Get the spyder Victor II.
Spyder Victor 2
14 inch Smart Parts Progressive Barrel
Keeps up with rate of fire
Accurate(with new barrel)
I bought this gun about one month ago with my hard earned cash expecting a great gun, which is exactly what I got. I brought it into an arena and it fired great, keeping up with my rate of fire and over powering tippmans and other more expensive guns. I would not recommend playing outside during winter because lots of balls break (especially in below 0 temps.)
Great gun, cheap, and overall amazing. If you were thinking of buying this gun and cant decide, I'll make the decesion for you: BUY THIS GUN!!!
completely stock.................but a J&J whisper barrel
Okay accuracy for a stock barrel. Not a gas guzzeler. very low maintenance.
Colors... very bad for woods ball for the shine attracts attention. loud. long trigger pull.
This gun has been very useful for me. It has been putten through rain, snow and other crap. Yet, it still works fine for me. It is a cheap gun but it works like, if not better than a tippman. If you by this gun, then make sure you buy green not blue.
I would say if your a noob then this is the gun for you. after a year or so you should switch to a better gun.. But for now this is what one looks for in a good cheap gun.

When i first got this gun i really liked the looks of it, some people say they dont like the color cuz its bad for playing in the woods but mine is green, not blue, so it's not so bad afterall, (i dont know why people dont just get the green in the first place because the blue is just plain ugly). The trigger pull is a bit long, but for a $50 mechanical marker you can't complain, just pull fast and it will perform well enough for the money invested. Also the bolt isn't shootin' out the back or the side so it isn't whackin' you in the face when in a tight spot. I see this as a major plus for a low-end marker. Then you have the fore-grip, for some strange reason when i first saw it i thought it was an expansion chamber but once i got the gun i realized the sad truth, but once again the gun was only $50, and at least it's there so you have something to hold so it's not so bad.
I would definitely recommend this gun for any beginner on a budget, it is a great gun for the money and i still think it looks cool too.
this is a good gun if u r just starting out paintballing and dont plan on playing every weekend . it is a good gun i didnt have any problems with it and it only brokedown on me once . i recommend this gun for beginers that are younger . i beat all my friends ( mostly ) and they aLL HAD HIGH END MARKERS
green spyder victor 2, pmi 14 in razzor barrel, green pmi hopper, 20 and 9 oz co2 tank
barrel, expansion chamber
Good gun for the price. Co2 efficent, dosent hurt your budget
Loud but a new barrel fixes that
I do like this gun for the price. I think it is a great gun with a new barrel and a camo job. works great in woodland play and dosent use alot of co2. If u break a barrel in the barrel u need to clean it right af the that round. if paint gets in ur barrel it will shoote curved. great gun
1) Crapy without upgrades
2) Not a sensitive trigger
This gun is good for the price and it is very cheap like 50 bucks. This gun is good for beginners. It looks cool and doesnt have a big kick. If you stick with this gun and keep upgrading it it can be a really good gun. That"s all i gotta say
This is not a good gun but I"ll give it a 6 for upgradableness

None really...I've only used a Tippman Rental before
14" PMI Razzor
VL quantum Loader
20 oz Tank
New Barrel, e-Hopper, and an e-Grip
Very Solid All-Around
I am still kind of new to the whole paintball game, however, I have taken my time to do the proper research when it comes to purchasing equipment and getting the best bang for your buck. I bought this as a package off of the internet for about $100, including a 20oz tank. I was able to use this it right out of the box which is good for a novice pballer. I have not chopped one ball in two different outings, using about 2000 balls. Thats great! I have also been able to go head to head competitively with other ballers who toted higher end guns into the match-up, while mine was completely stock. I just recently got the 14" barrel and the e-Hopper.
The only thing I would definitely reccommend an upgrade on in the beginning is a barrel.
If you want to play at an inexpensive level and build your way up piece by piece, I would completely reccommend this marker. it is very solid, low maintainence and allows you to get into the game without a huge financial commitment. The guys that I play with have Spyder makers that they paid double for yet I am not out-classed. Which is all you can ask for (For your equipment to keep you in the game.)
Also, I would definitely reccommend an upgrade to the barrel once you can do so.
