It's a great entry level marker. Not everyone wants/needs a $1200 marker.

I think the Proton certainly looks OK and if it shoots like I am hearing then they are going to sell a few

I actually think it looks pretty awesome. Not as flashy as other markers but it definitely has class to it. Some custom anno work and with its milling it could be a very hot gun.

That's the problem. People worry more about looks, then anything else.

That's why these same people often suck at paintball.

There is no greater feeling than going to a tournament.....having all the pretty boys look at you and your ratty gear and convincing themselves you're not a threat. Then you beating the snot out of them and watching them whine and cry after the game lol. Now that's the spirit of paintball

Please, before you make yourself look like anymore of a *******, refrain from posting.

It is a Private Label marker.

Valken won't have any money left, after Bob Long sues them for copying the g6r.

Very happy with the performance of this marker last weekend. We've been practicing for the last WCPPL tournament in November and I let a few of my teammates try the Proton. It's light, tiny and has decent ergonomics. It's not a Geo3 or a Luxe in terms of overall feel in the hands, but for the money spent, it's a very good deal. Really happy with the efficiency. I noted that I shot all 7 of my pods with a half a rotor left and I had about 1300 psi left in my 68/4500 ninja set to low pressure. I chronoed to the high 290-300's. kick was similar to my NT. sound was a bit "clacky", but I attributed that to having a clapper noid relatively close to my head/ear while controlling a lane. Didn't touch the stock barrel, but the feedneck is very nice and has an excellent lever. (Damn similar to a BL feedneck). I'll keep playing with this over the winter months to test it's reliability during the cooler weather. (Never gets COLD here in Cen Cal...)

Man I am hoping to pick one of these up. I have friends and family who do it as rec, and I think this gun sounds like a gun that might fit them.

This would be perfect for that. The Aura is my pick for best marker around $300 and The Proton is an improved Aura.

to clear up confusion the mokal and proton are the same gun and to the slippery part ur really stupid look at the side of the reg it has hand grooves like the axe redline grip. do ur research before u say anything. also just like the mokal aura it has eye shields which means east to clean during gameplay. unlike a luxe the mokal aka Vproton wont crash as easy during a cold rainy day.

i've had many, many different guns over the years but i gotta say i am very impressed with my proton. I ran 2 cases thru mine and this thing will definitely compete with the higher end guns on the market, regardless of what haters say. incredible buy for $300. good job Valken!

the luxe is more reliable and more efficient and a smoother shot..yes this is a good beginner tourney gun but that is all, i don't see why people argue.. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

nuff said

a luxe will kill this gun hands down, its not a competion at all...hands down to luxe, you are comparing two guns that aren't even close to each other it would more be like

Proton vs 12 Rail
Proton vs Mini
Proton vs etha
Proton vs etek 3/4 lt

YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

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.
