oh. I read your post wrong. I thought you were saying the J4 is neither a poppet or spool. I should go to bed.

No worries, I had to reread it a few times myself just to make sure I wasn't being daft.

Any new marker in the same line will drop the value of the older ones, sorry.

And I do think this appeals to the same market as the J4 gun. They are both expensive, tournament grade, spoolies (albeit that one can change to poppit).

I think it's going to increase the value of them, because people are going to want a victory, but are not willing to pay the full price of a brand new one. It's certainly going to increase the demand for them.

cost on the spool engine is 169.99 and by my understanding thats for any standard solid color. Zach didnt exactly specify yesterday when I asked him :P

I was thinking the same thing until I saw more than several people on PbN saying they wanted to pick up a V1 Vic just to try the spool engine out. Maybe I should sell it now while the bubble is still growing.

I would if I had one. Take the funds and go buy a supercharged Marq and PM8/Quest (ie. some of the better bang-for-buck inline poppets and spoolies, IMO). When one goes down, grab the other. I just can't see myself switching "engines" between play. I had rather than 2 markers at my disposal than one trying to do both.

But, then again, I'm a bit of a gun whore

I could see a leak springing in one and having to quickly switch to the other instead of breaking the leaking one down and fixing it.

Here is Bob Long video. He is funny even when he is trying to be serious. Watch the whole thing.

I like multi-taskers... That's why I like mags. I'm constantly plagued with questions: so, do I want to play mech, pneu, electro, or should I just flip between mech and electro midgame?

I am actually considering this... or at least a V1 and then buy the other engine.

If you go after a V1, try to find a later model. Later model Victorys came with the G6R style grips and are way more comfy than the old grips. They also came with a .685 barrel instead of a .693. And 90% of all Victorys came with the SC engine, don't let someone try to charge ya more just because it is "SC'd".
