V1 w/vcom engine

Is a used V1 w/vcom engine the best gun in that price range??

Not sure best, now it you put the vis engine in there it would be one of the best.

It would be the smoothest, macro less marker for the money, might be more appropriate. I've learned that with the marq line that some quality tuning goes a long way. 2x times I've seen supercharged engines sound/feel incredibly smooth, thought they maybe had a fresh vis engine in at stock settings.

I have a v1 with a spool, did not shoot it before it shipped to blast. I mostly shoot a factory team shocker, from back in the day

I have compared my Vcom v1 to a Luxe at my field once sound-wise and the Vcom definitely has it beat. So quiet it's ridiculous.

There is alot of V1 love in here... Sounds like the shocker might end up in the gear bag...

I shot my ripper with the VCOM spool engine last Sunday and it was smoother than my Insight. Can't say it's smoother than my Luxe but I haven't used it for a while.

I would say it depends on how you purchase. If you have no V1, it seems nearly as inexpensive to find a used vcom with both engines while gaining the OLED screen. If you have a V1 already, then its very easy to pick up the spool engine. Now of you find a good price on a V1 that includes both poppet and spool, its a great buy. Not having anything invested in the Victory lineup, I'd personally probably hunt for a well priced Vcom and be happy. Seen a few under $600, under $550 if you're patient.

I picked up a V1 with a spool for a real good price. Its at BLAST... It seems that the V1 is one of the best guns out there for the $$$ right now.

I agree with Benzy, at around the $600 mark, a Vcom with the Frenzy OLED is a better value ... Ether way, you're getting an excellent marker and with the Vcom, it will shoot as well or better than most $1500+ Supper Guns.
