V2 Vic (V-com'd) vs. DM12 vs. LUXE vs. Other???

I already have the LUXE but cannot sell it for another (i dislike the color of mine)
so I'm going to try to trade!

What i am looking for:

not a tall marker
little kick
good trigger
predictable shot
light in the hands (full setup)
stock things (barrel, trigger, tools, all accessories)


PRICE RANGE:800 and under

PLEASE HELP!

Thank you!

Well, IMO they all lose in the good trigger department. Victory is IMO the worst of the lot, but I don't like a single one of these triggers.

DM loses for being tall. Vic and Luxe are both fairly short.

None of them have much kick.

They're all quite predictable, as one would expect from a marker that costs over $1000.

Light, I think the Vic is the lightest and the DM is the heaviest, but they're not a HUGE amount of difference between them regardless and I'm too lazy to verify if I'm correct.

All that said, I'd take the Vic. DM's are, to me, still stuck in 2005 (macroline, LED boards, single barrel), and they haven't really improved the PERFORMANCE of the marker since the PM8, so I'd buy used any day if I wanted a DM. The Vic still suffers from several of those issues, but the thing just shoots so nicely. Luxes don't fit my hands. I can't stand shooting them.

Depends on your preference. I do prefer the ergonomics and fit snd finish of the Luxe over the VX but some people swear by that thing.

I own a dm12 and i just sold my v1 spool vic to purchase the new vcom (arriving tomorrow) and i can hands down tell ya that the vcom is so much more efficient then both the luxe and the dm12. There is no recoil and the gun is super quite. You really cant go wrong with a spool valve victory. Im a believer

You can pick up a clone vx from trademygun for $855. That's not a huge stretch.
