For most people getting this gun you won't be disappointed. This is a great gun for shooting first strike rounds. The Dual Loading System is awesome and lets you play several different ways. This is the perfect beginners sniper.

Here are the things I don't like about the gun:
- back bottle
- loud/farty due to poor nelson valve design (see phantom)
- Dual Loading System shreds detents if not careful
- anti-rollout feature makes paint bore matching barrels useless, this is because it creates a space between the ball and the barrel. When you fire the gun the ball will clip the bottom of the barrel as it tries to get out and cracks, aka barrel break. This will happen a bunch unless you use a large bore barrel.
- Spyder threading, this is because almost every gun I own is autococker threaded, even my Ion.
- You can't change from magazine to hopper on the fly, unless you carry a allen with you

Don't let this list change your mind about this gun! I imagine that someone will come out with upgrades to fix these issues.

Super cool marker to buy. cheap, magazine fed, and first strike capable.

Pro's- The biggest one is first strike capability. The tac rail on top makes it super easy to put whatever optics or whatnot you want on it as well. This style of pump is a proven design, and all the parts seem to be built with durability in mind.

Con's- A couple of quirks I did find when I purchased my hammer 7. When I first aired it up the valve had a small leak. It turns out the brass seal in the valve had a small nick in it. It was a simple enough fix to smooth out, but still not fun to do from the factory. It also seems the bottomline mount holes are situated too far down the grip frame and does not allow for a basic bottomline set-up on the grip frame. My final gripe is about the pump handle. It functions well and is durable, but the absence of a rail on it is slightly disappointing.

Overall this is a solid pick-up for 130 bucks. It has a couple of quirks, but for the price it's worth it to have a magazine fed first strike shooter.

Kingman Group Hammer 7 A great pump by Spyder. The ability to use magazine and loader is amazing. Also, first strike ready. The magazines sometimes dont go in smoothly though.

I havent played pump since 1988 so this was my first trip down memory lane. I love nelson design their simple to repair. The first time I chronoed the gun it would not go above 220. I tightened up the cup seal and it works fine now. I really like first strike. I would recommend this marker.

Great shotgun looking marker. You must be ready to adapt to a more aggressive pump play. Its is not a light pump hand and must be pumped stronger. PRO TIP: make sure to pump all the way when using this marker, or it will chop like crazy. Slow down and fully pump and no chop will happen. This is perfect to build a sniper out of this marker.

PROS:
first strike ready (includes 9rd mag)
shotgun look
hopper ready
air out the back at an angle

CONS:
very difficult feed neck install ( awkward position)
no offset feed neck ( block all sights)

I bought mine new on a "demo"sale,I always wanted to try pump and the price was right
Have played about 4 games with it,mag and hopper fed,its was very consitant out of the box,came with some FS rounds also a big+
Didnt like the backbottle so I set it up with a CP on/off,helped a ton with sighting with a red dot
FS rounds are awesome,they really live up to the hype,take some getting used to as they dont arc like normal paintballs,est range is 200ft
Ive had a few issues with shooting FS rounds out of the mag,some were old rounds donated to me,the rounds to have some defects,.new rounds i got with the gun were unaffected
most bang for the buck paintball equiptment Ive owned since I bought my JT Spectra gogs new in 95(I still use it)
customer support on forums has been unmatched by any other large manufacturer,one of the main reasons I decided to buy it,Kingman is definately on an upswing
Heres my review,ill continue updating it as i use it

When I first saw this marker advertised I was intrigued. When I saw the price point I figured what's the harm in taking a look? I preordered it and it came with some free first strike rounds which was nice. The box isn't anything fancy but for the price....hey. I don' think it will hold up forever but it works. It is no different than what I have seen most kingman markers come in. So the marker works as it should and is just fun. I like that it's relatively easy to customize with standard 45 style grips and a muzzle break that unscrews and accepts other types plus the ris rails. I recommend breaking the marker down and lubing it up as mine and some others I have seen are a bit stiff out of the box. The one thing that I think would have really made this marker more fun would have been the ability to swap from firing hopper fed to mag fed on the fly. As it stands you can't. I'm working with a friend on some ideas for a mod but they didn't make it easy. I would definitely buy a mod for that and I think others would also if someone wants to take a crack at it. I've seen folks buying them so I think the price point is right and I can't think of another pump besides the azodin or something used that you could grab relatively inexpensive lay if you wanted to try your hand at pump play. Try one out!
