(click to enlarge)


The Viewloader Orion paintball marker is a low-end mechanical paintball marker (gun) with high-rise vertical feed port for increased feed rate, a volumizer for increased gas efficiency, a gas thru fore grip, aluminum receiver, double finger trigger, and a drop forward.

Summary: The Orion is a good beginners marker, accurate, consistent, never chops balls, light, well balanced, easy to strip and clean, 5 - 7 BPS. The gun is a bit loud, and the screws tend to come lose.
