I recently purchased this marker and it is by far the greatest purchase I have made so far. The gun is very efficient, and for it's price it is really good. It's the smoothest poppet I've tried by far. Bob just released a spool engine for this marker too! The cons are basically pros for this marker also!

One of the drawbacks is that this marker "requires" low pressure. I actually like this though, it makes the marker very smooth. Another drawback is that a pressure tester is required. Hoewver, I also like this because since I can check the lpr and hpr pressures I can essentially chrono the marker without a chrono.

The only real cons I have with this gun is that it doesn't come with a hard case (which isn't that big of a deal) and also that you cannot really annodize the marker, unless you want to risk ruining the tolerances and causing permanent leaks.

I'll update this later

This review is LONG overdue. I finally have gotten enough play time with this gun to give it a fair rundown.
My first Bob Long gun was a Closer, and I was absolutly blown away! Marqs are just beautiful! So the next mandatory progression moved me into Victory territory...it has been an amazing ride these last 8 months!
My initial impression of the Victory was just complete and utter shock! The first gen Victorys are gorgeous! The milling is simple, yet complex if you follow all of the various cuts. There's even a window milled through the body to show off the Proficiency/Supercharged Engine. Everything just fits so well together. This gun looks gorgeous!
Next I picked the Victory up. Holding this gun is second to none. There is not a single marker out there that feels this balanced, and this comfortable to me. The frame is very thin and contoured just right. I also really enjoy the smaller inline regulator. It fits just right in my forward positioned hand, and I can keep the gun steady and on target. I'm a fan, even though I know it's not for everyone. Also worth mentioning is how the gun totally degasses when you turn off the air supply via the ASA. There's not much to it either...a very small puff of gas from the purge hole on the ASA, and there is NO air left in the gun. But my favorite feature by far has to be the body design, and how small and compact it is. I've always loved Shockers and Ions for how the single tube body design looks when sighting down the gun towards your target. No exposed bolt and a very simple single tube design that flows from the back of the gun all the way down to the end of the barrel. It just feels more natural to me. Everything about the ergonomics of this gun just shine so bright I have a hard time going back to my Ego 7.
Now for the operation. This is such an exciting part to explain to people who understand how a poppit and a spooler feel/sound. The Victory is like a cross between both operations (for those of you who are new, the Victory is an inline poppit valve gun). On one hand you get the smoothness of a spooler...I've shot 4 different DM's (DM5, DM6, DM7, and a DM9), a Shocker, a Luxe, and 2010 NT's. This gun, while not as smooth, is so damn close it's scary. I've shot this side by side with Ego's and it is by far a much cleaner, smoother shot (and I LOVE Ego's). I also noticed that the sound signature is a very clean and smooth thud, not a pop or snap usually associated with stacked tube poppits. Once again it reminded me of Spoolers I have shot in the past...moreso then poppits.
Finally I would like to mention a bit about maintenance. The Victory is a very straight forward and easy marker to take care of. Someone unfamiliar with maintaining a paintball gun may have some questions, but for the most part, just about anyone can take care of a Victory. The "Engine" of the gun removes from the back very easily (thanks to the ingenious magnetic locking clamp), and comes apart even easier (just pull the quick disconnect bolt, and unthread the two halves of the engine). Just add some Dow 55 to the outer engine orings and the bolt shaft, then a touch of Tri-Flow oil to the bolt and you're through. That's about all there is to maintaining the Victory. My favorite part of maintaining (and I suppose setting up) the Victory is the pressure tester. Most guns require that you limbo around with the LPR and the HPR until you get a nice bolt cycle and you hit your desired velocity mark over the chrono...Most of these how-to's require plenty of patience in order to sweet spot your gun. With the Victory, you just pull the engine, slide the pressure tester into it's place, air up your gun (with a sweet 180 degree turn cam drive asa), and dial your lpr into around 80 psi, and your inline into around 175 psi). That's it...your done, the gun should cycle smooth as butter and shoot close to 300 fps. It works every time, and it takes literally minutes if not, seconds to do. No other gun I've ever shot has been this easy to setup.
One final piece to mention is the few problems I had with the gun. The first was a velocity issue. I could not chrono my gun above 270 fps no matter how I adjusted my regulators. The problem ended up being a bad oring somewhere on the engine or the lpr. I ended up having all of the oring replaced and promptly ordered an oring kit to keep this problem from rearing it's ugly head again. The only other problem I had was my back cap magnet fell out. Not a big deal, but both problems happened about a month after I recieved the gun, brand new. Bob, Zach, Matt and Joe were all very helpful and got me up and running again in no time.
All that being said, I would like to extend another invitation to anyone and everyone who has some sort of bug to try a Bob Long. Do it! This is my second Bob Long gun, and I have never been happier with a paintball gun! You will not regret your decision at all! From the overall look and feel to the ease of maintenance and setup, this gun is so well designed it's otherworldly...Bob Long has some fantastic paintball guns, and great customer service!
Buy this gun, shoot this gun, fall in love with paintball all over again!

This is my first victory, and I must say it is the cumilation of the Marq platform. I've owned perhaps 10 Marqs, and this victory (sc'd, 4eye, vp trigger, cp 2piece) is truly the best thing ever. VERY efficient and so smooth. The trigger is bouncing right now but the gun has NO problem hitting 20bps over a chrono. I actually like the short regulator and feel that it gives the gun a great feel. I'd definitely recommend one!

I had a team landshark victory. it shot great and even held up playing in mud and rain the only issue was getting the bolt out. it would stick some times. and the windows on the side somtimes would let dirt get down the chamber when cleaning the bolt and then you would have to clean out the whole gun

Very smooth, I was incredibly surprised at the smoothness and the sound. Really quiet. It's efficient as well, I didn't get exact number but they're definitely more efficient than my Pmr.

I have only used the original poppet engine, and I'm 100% sure both the VCOM and VIS engines are amazing.

I shot my Victory for quite a while and loved every part of it except the weight and comfort of the gun. It just flat out felt terrible. The shot was good and I played alright with it, it just always felt awkward and uncomfortable. If you like the feel, I couldn't find a thing wrong with it.

this marker is the best ive ever layed my hands on. i bought the km engraved edition. my marker came with the .686 barrel, which i have never heard about it coming with that before. but it was perfect for the karnage paint we use. gun out of the box shot very fast. i was able to get around 17bps out of it the first time i shot it. i am probably near the 22bps area now without 4c eyes. i will be getting the 4c eyes just to get the smoothness of them. the marker is supprisingly efficient on air. and the feedneck works very well with the dye rotor loader. this marker is hands down the best one i have ever used.
