The KP3 shoots great but if you plan to do anything more than some basic rec ball look at something different. We play X-Ball with our pumps and one evening my son dove into the snake and in the process ripped the reg right off the body. Upon inspection I found that the reg is held in place by just a 10-32 machine screw. He made some very similar dives today doing drills and his current marker kept right on shooting.
I repaired the gun but we sold it and my son now plays with a Sniper. Actually we both play with Snipers. We have done some fine tuning to the internals and I put an aftermarket handle on mine. All in all the the Snipers have performed flawlessly. We have been running three practices a week for over a month and they have never let us down.
One of the guys on our team just picked up an MVP and I am impressed. It absolutely shoots darts even though it comes with just one bore size. It has a relatively quiet sound and the pump stroke is silky. The pump stroke is actually too soft for me.
Two other guys shoot CCM's. One of them has an older 6.5 that he likes a great deal. It shoots very well but I like a crisper pump stroke. The other guy shoots a T6 I believe. He had a T2 but did not like how the screws would work loose.
The rest of our team is a mix match of cocker based pumps. The fella who just got the MVP also has a really sweet shooting Cocker based pump that is really sweet !!! It is dead quiet and very straight. He said today the MVP may have to sit out the NXL next weekend.
I am sure this probably made things worse but there it is. Those are the markers I have handled, shot, been shot at with and basically been around.
