Stores/Dealers get first dibs on the orders, which means direct from Valken they are back ordered/sold out. When stores recieve them, they will be plentiful. If your local store bought some or you shop online, when theyre released youll be able to pick one up.

Y U SO MAD?!

Not sure if it's been posted, read through the whole thread over a couple days. Has there been an official release date posted?

Finally got to actually handle one of these at ION, and I have to admit I was impressed- particularly with the trigger. If these really are coming out at the price point I've heard they're going to, you're getting A LOT of gun for your money, and the trigger is one of, if not THE best stock trigger I've ever felt on any gun. Ever.

Is the front forgrip comfy? Because it looks really squared off.

I own a Aura with the nice trigger. Unfortunately it arrived without detents/springs. I still shot a hopper of balls thru it with a few double feeds and breaks. This is an excellent gun for the price, lightweight (1.10 lbs with stock barrel) with nice features for the money.

The Proton is going to be a winner, guaranteed! With the upgrades to the Aura, this marker is going to be hard to beat in the price point and will contend with the other higher end more expensive markers.

I know there will be people bashing this marker without even trying it because they have spent over $1000 into their markers and they just don't want to believe something that cost $300 can shoot as well. Most markers are a matter of looks, preference and feel regardless of cost. I have owned/shot over a hundred markers and I too have spent over $1000 for many guns over the years. Many of these markers now are 50% or less of their original value. Technology keeps changing and newer versions keep coming out. For $300, the Proton will do exactly what I need it to do, turn on and shoot people out and I won't lose sleep if I have to get rid of it down the road and lose $100.

Really thinking about picking one of these up. I think it's kind of ugly but in a good way, if that makes any sense? I love the critical looking trigger! Does anyone know if it's duel bearring and magnet or spring?

It's definitely not round like the front grip/reg on most guns, but it's rounded off enough where I certainly didn't find it uncomfortable. Just felt a little different is all. I found my left hand wrapped around it pretty nicely. To be honest, I felt like the machining quality (the little things like even gaps where parts bolt together, lack of tool marks, etc) was miles above the Axe and maybe even the Etek3/4 to a certain extent, certainly the LT model. When you factor in the price point, that's damned impressive.

And before someone brings it up, yes, my team is sponsored by Valken and we have a very close relationship with them. But I can honestly say when they first started talking about this gun and it being built by Mokal off of the Aura I had zero interest in it. GOG/DLX is our gun sponsor and I'm more than happy with my G1. Then I picked up the Proton prototype and I was sold. We even have guys on our team who rock Luxes who are drooling over the idea of getting a Proton as a backup/loaner gun. I'm not trying to say this is going to be the greatest gun ever made or anything ridiculous like that, but for a $300 MAP, and how it holds up (again, IMO) to markers that are $150-300 more expensive, the Proton is worth a look, even for the skeptics.

I'm not 100% on this but I believe it is a spring. And if it's not dual bearing, I don't know how many sheep Valken sacrificed to the paintball gods to do it, but it sure as hell feels like a dual bearing. I've shot everything from low-end Tippmanns to an SLS, NT11 (with stock and Critical triggers), Geo 2.1, Mini, Ion, etc, etc, and I can honestly say the Proton has the slickest feeling trigger of any gun I've ever held.

The biggest selling point to me half the time is the trigger. I play local tourneys only and they are all semi. So I really have to have a good trigger to walk. I'm not the best at it but getting better. My favorite gun I've ever shot in semi had to have been the 06 Borg with violent trigger. And if the proton is anything like that then I'm pretty much sold!

I was lucky enough to check one out at dday and I was very impressed. The trigger is great and the milling was really nice. I already have one on preorder.

Good news! The first batch is shipping to dealers this week.

I have one in hand--and I can answer any questions, take any pics, or hopefully help out anyone that has any questions or concerns about the Proton.

Post up below and I'll try and do a nice Q&A segment on Monday!

Pics or even a video would be greatly appreciated.

It's frequently mentioned that it's an improved Mokal Aura, what exactly was improved or changed?

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
