What was changed from Aura to this? Could we get pics of the improved bolt system. Will the gun have psp 12.5?

I absolutely love the look of this gun, I love what I am hearing about this gun, and best of all I looooove the price of this gun. I almost pre-ordered one just moment ago but decided not to. The colors are it's biggest killer. You have a pink and black, but not blue?

If there was a color option like teal and black that gun would be mine. Why the limited colors?

UltimatePaintball.com seems to have them. At least they're listed for sale.

How come still no videos of this thing shooting? Someone must have one ready to share. Would be a good competitor to the Dangerous Power G4 line.

  • Different Feedneck
  • Body Milling
  • Back Cap
  • Bolt Tip
  • Grip Panels
  • Trigger (recurve style + ball bearings)
  • New Board
  • New Programming
  • Shorter throw ASA (note the prototype [it's black as opposed to matching silver like production]
  • Front Grip

I shot with a Ninja tank this weekend (and all the times previously) and had no issues with pinging...were you using a Myth reg? The gun does kick, much like anything else of it's size or price range--but I don't think it's anything on the level of a poppet gun or otherwise. Davey Williamson, the most diabolical hater on the Valken crew, even complimented the gun and asked why we weren't charging more for it.

After asking our mech. engineer, we altered the tapering on the bolt tip and increased a wall thickness on the can. Nothing drastic, the bolt tip prevents clipping of the ball queue, and the wall thickness on the can prevents flexing and unintentional bending during maintenance (or if the parts are dropped, or had something dropped on them etc.)

It has PSP 12.5, 100% on that.

We will have tons of colors in time. Blue is for sure on the list. The biggest problem we're having is keeping them the stock levels up--we sold out of the initial run in less than 2 days. The gun is 100% machined, assembled, tested, and sold out of North America--so we're not exactly pumping this thing out of a massive manufacturing plant in Asia. Not that there's anything against that, there are arguments for both sides.

Pretty much anyone that carries a lot of Valken product should carry it. I would point you a certain way, but I want to respect PBN's rules and give equality to our vendors--they work hard to stay in business and keep the customer happy. Hit your local store up and get on the list.

I just shot a commercial, unboxing, maintenance, and basic FAQ with DerDer on Friday. You should see it shortly. Rob is a boss.

You're more or less reason enough to purchase this marker, best rep I've seen.

Where's this kind of rep when you get a PALLET of worthless FATE paint that wont break for ****? Of course Valken responds to everybody's posts in this thread because THEY DON'T HAVE YOUR MONEY YET. If they can't fix an issue with a WHOLE PALLET of bad paint, what happens when your marker stops working? If it's anything like what happened to us, you're screwed.

Pumped but sadly this purchase will have to wait til the middle of September when I get back home. Here's hoping for some more colors are in stock then, not saying the ones you have are bad. Crossing my fingers for purple and/or electric blue

We just picked ours this morning. I am pretty impressed with all I have seen thusfar. I'm hoping to put some paint through it this afternoon. I was able to shoot "Winter's" from Valken this past weekend at the MAPL. It seems to pack a bit of a punch for such a tiny package.

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.
