Default Re: RS Series

I think that the RS is just a CO2 compatible VS2 + a tadao board and a few extras

Thats exactly right newkid.

TBH, anyone who says Kingman is stooping down by making it work with CO2, is an idiot. CO2 compatibility opens the door for many players who aren;t willing to commit to buy a $200 air tank. And, in all honesty, I think CO2 is a better gas. Properly regged and anti-siphoned, it's cheaper, just as consistent, and as someone mentioned above, it works better with blowback markers in general.

The only thing it really means, is that the VS (RS is essentially VS + better reg as far as I can tell) has a robust construction that will take a beating and keep going. High end EP's can't tolerate the CO2 because of their pneumatic noids.

CO2 Compat = good.

Hte thing Im disipointed in is the fact that it only runs at 300 psi, I had my VS2 below that, I think they should make it more low pressure.


*hard thinking* I wonder if you could put the VS Balance valve and internls in there*hardthinking*

I'd get the RSX.

What's so new about this Spyder? It's a VS-2 that runs on co2 as well to me. New trigger and normal regulator and on/off. But, it was Bad Company that mainly made Kingman remake the VS's because they were not reliable and they weren't reliable with many other players as well. (Including me. I had my VS-2 break quite a bit) So what did they do to make them good enough to work better and actually stay reliable? New internals?

A habitual misconception that lower is always better, it's not -

isn't there two versions of the gun, the RS and the RSX, the RSX has a platinum kit and that tadao board. so the RS would be like what, $60 - $80 cheaper??
