So when they release a new version of an old marker expect only slight cosmetic changes, this keeps the same trend that they have followed for years, and it has been said many times before, if a kingman gun came out to compete with the high end market (a spimmied VS2 for example) it would flop miserably because of the association of the kingman name with low end look at the primal, that was a solid contender for the BKO but it flopped and the BKO did great, mostly because of the kingman name. Why enter into a new market that A. they have little to no experience with, and B. they would only end up failing due to the name associated with the marker and C. they have this market by the balls... I think just about every beginner out there has either shot a spyder at one point in their paintball career, Kingman is making money by not changing their guns much, why should they change it up?

Thumbs down Re: Kingman has some new guns

1. Where are the sight rails?
2. Where's the distinction between the guns?
3. What's my motivation to go out and buy one of these over an older model?
4. Why on earth are they so stinkin' ugly?!

I agree with KEVLAR on this one guys. All the new guns look the same. They look about as useful as a poopy flavored lolypop. No offense

I don't think you should say that. People have a right to express their opinions old or new thread. Plus you dont want them to make a new thread about the same thing. This way it's convenient.

When the thread is 2 months old and a mod says don't bring it back, you don't bring it back. Thems the rules. If you don't like them and wish to argue, bring it up with the mods in PMs, or just don't post. People have the right to leave at any time, you must remember.

ok, everyone agrees that they're ugly as sin, but honestly, i dont care what it looks like: how well do they perform? are they still good at hitting what you want hit?

besides, i play woodsball and my objective is NOT to be seen, so they wont know what my gun looks like anyway, so who cares???

ugly or not, the VS1 has some decent stuff, for cheap. eyes, electro, volumizer, expansion chamber. pretty good stuff.
Go ahead and wipe, 'cuz I'll just shoot you again.

its amazing how 'no' is the same in so many languages, but its the one word so few people can understand.
