So what is the difference bewteen the two markers besides the colors/top piece? Does one perform better than the other? I'm looking to get one soon but don't want to pay an extra $50 if they both perform the same.
So...is there any practical difference between these guns and the pistols Real Action Paintball has been selling? http://www.rap4.com/paintball/os/pai...ck-p-2260.html is modeled after the Walther P99 pistol (one of my personal faves) and seems to have similar specs. Anybody out there tried those, too?

Well, the trouble (it seems) with the RAP series is that they've been sued over the resemblance of their markers to real steel. My personal experience with RAP markers hasn't been what I would call excellent, but their pistols are of a completely different internal design from their "rifles". For this reason, they may also be worth a shot.
Still, the price tag and solidity of the Kingman brand appeals to me, not to mention the lower likelihood of the marker being confused for a true firearm.

Honestly man, listen to what you're saying. We are all people and if you don't like a country, or a continent for that matter keep it to yourself! I personally have been to Canada hundreds of times (previously lived in upstate NY) and I can say it's not very impressive. Please just refrain from the extremely offensive post's like "dirt city Africa". Someone you could potentially be interested in completing a deal with may be from, or have family in Africa in which case you're more than likely not going to be completing that deal. Anyway you want to look at it your post was unnecessary so just clean up your act. PbNation doesn't need any extra negativity.
I heard from a field owner that he allows people to use kingman training, but he does not recommend it, stating they are like "toys"
Which is kind of ironic, since every review I've read from people who've tried these say that it feels far more like a real sidearm than the Tipx or T8x given the metal construction, realistic size, etc.
Can see why field owners would be against them though, given most places don't carry .43 cal paint.
