View Full Version : Pugsters VS1 review

08-19-2007, 09:27 AM
I purchased the Vs1 about three months ago, i must say, i wasn't as happy as i thought i would be.

-does not have the low pressure system unlike the VS2 and 3
-stock nine inch barrel shoots curveballs
-not very many aftermarket parts, i think this is the spyder with the least of them.
-in mine there was a defective valve that had to be replaced after the fifth use.
-lots of kick
-not very good on air usage
-not very ergonomic, i like the feel of my dads 80$ mokal fokus better.
-expensive in canada, 185$
-does not have full auto
-trigger has side to side wobble

-has eyes
-easy to take apart and reassemble
-shoots farely fast on semi, i clocked 14 bps once
-looks ok

As you can see the cons outweigh the pros, if your thinking of getting this gun don't, go for a vs2, pilot acs or ion.
My digital camera is out of commision right now, may be pics later.

Thanks for the review Pugster. I don't know much about the VS1 but I always figured it was just like the VS2 except for a few cosmetics and trigger frame. I didn't know there was that much of a difference.

yeah, there is not low pressure system so it defeats the purpose(?) of the Vs2 and 3.

the VS1 is a regular spyder but with eyes
you should of compared it to another regular spyder like the pilot, xtra, etc

My friend has a pilot ACS, i am comparing it to the pilot, at the bottom of my review i say you would be better off getting a pilot. also, why would i compare it to the xtra or any other mech spyder when it costs alot more then one. the ion, vs2, and pilot or more in its price range.

because it is a regular spyder
it doesn''t have the balance valve like a vs2 becasue it was made for the ppl that don't have the option of geting hpa
thats why you should compare it to a regular ol' spyder
by comparing it to an vs2 or ion you are of course going to think it's a pos
but if you put it next to any of the other regular spyders you see that it is top of the line since it has eyes

I dont think the balance valve is the non co2 compatible thing in a vs2. Methinks its the reg.
