View Full Version : Raven Markers, why aren't they popular?

It seems to me that when it comes to Kingman, all you hear is stuff about Spyder or the MR-series. I didn't even know there was this "Raven" series til I looked on Kingman's site.

So my question, why aren't Raven markers more popular, they seem to have some very awesome features, yet don't seem to get much attention, and I missing something?

IMO it's an overglorified Spyder that costs too dang much...

it's just that so much more new paintball guns are coming out and the old ones are being forgotten

Yep got mine on a good deal too.... And well the best of the kingman EP line isnt even that great of a marker.... Its good and has potential but kingman lacked in putting 100% quality parts in this gun...

EX. Noid only suposed to support 100PSI, Small opening in the V/A, Bad stock orings, Return spring too strong, No on and off.

Its just they put a large hype on a gun that isnt what the hype said it would be.

Exactly....when Kingman released the Raven markers their prices were unbelievably high... I think the Primal was $600...... yeah ok, who would pay that much, might as well get a DM4 or Shocker for that. By the time the prices came down they were pushed aside as being typical overpriced kingman markers..... You can now get the Primal new for $170 on the net.... If the Primal was released at $250 when new it would have been a big success. With entry level Ep's coming out at $200 range Kingman NEEDS to lower their prices badly! :)

Yea my primal is nice and i love it but its heavy ugly and isnt easy to walk... but putting a t-board in it makes its performance increase incredibly....
