Learn About Azodin Paintball Guns
The Azodin paintball brand is best known for it's entry level paintball guns. In the paintball industry, the entry level paintball guns don't get a lot of attention. Most companies focus on the upgraded paintball markers for the flashy colors and large product selection. Azodin paintball guns are one of the few line of paintball guns that as a newer player, you have the choice to get the color that matches your style without paying a huge price.
The Azodin paintball company is full of an experienced staff who were from the very well known company, Kingman. This company is who made the famous Spyder paintball guns that so many of us grew up playing with. Azodin paintball guns are the new age Kingman Spyder paintball guns with more flash than ever before.
A few years ago, when Azodin released the original Kaos and Blitz paintball markers, their journey started out rough with the Blitz having quite a few issues and losing a lot of support from the paintball community. The Azodin company did what any legitimate and reliable paintball company did and improved their marker lineup and fixed all of the issues the older style guns hard. Now, we are thankful to have the Azodin Kaos 2, the Blitz 3 and the KP3 Pump just to name a couple of their most popular guns.
Below you can read a little about each of their popular recent releases and what we think about each level marker they have. If you have any questions, Pro Edge Paintball staff is always here to answer any of your questions.
The Azodin Kaos 2 is by for the best entry level paintball gun for the price in the opinion of Pro Edge Paintball. The Kaos 2 is a very light well, well built marker that is reliable and durable for those newer paintball players who won't be extremely familiar with cleaning and taking care of their gear just yet. With an all metal body and feedneck system, the Kaos 2 also features tool less disassembly to make it very easy for servicing while at the paintball park. The parts for repair are extremely affordable in case of an issue after your warranty expires of course.
The Kaos 2 does not require a lot of upgrades as it is an entry level, mechanical paintball gun meant to give a player a step into paintball without going too crazy and spending too much. The most important skill in paintball is accuracy and the Kaos 2 barrel is upgrade able to ensure you can upgrade your barrel system to help you be more accurate on the playing field.
As each player plays more, they will ask, "What paintball gun should I upgrade to next". If you owned the Azodin Kaos or Azodin Kaos 2 the natural next step would be the Blitz 3. The Blitz 3 is an ugprade from the original Blitz and is the electronic version of the Kaos 2. What this means is if you are looking for an electronic paintball gun that offers faster rates of fire and modes, reliability and ease of cleaning for a low price, the Azodin Blitz 3 would be our recommendation. The Blitz 3 is the best paintball gun under $200 if you are not looking for a tactical style marker.
The Blitz 3 offers the same barrel system as the Kaos 2 allowing any upgraded barrels purchased for the Kaos 2 to be used on the Blitz 3 as well. The bolt system in the Blitz is also tool less and can be removed quickly at the field if you get the firing system dirty or break paintballs inside of your gun. When you purchase the Blitz 3 new, it will come with a small tool and o ring kit that gives you the tool needed to replace the standard 9 volt battery that is needed for the Blitz to operate. One drawback to this marker is the need or recommendation to use high pressure air on it. CO2 can be used on the Blitz but if you want the smallest chance of trouble with your gun setup, high pressure air is answer for you. The cleaner air allows the o rings inside of the gun to operate longer, with less wear and tear giving you a better experience. CO2 also likes to freeze the o rings in the cold temperatures where high pressure air doesn't tend to do this as bad.
One other extremely popular paintball gun from Azodin is the KP3 pump gun. As the title says, this marker is a pump style paintball gun that requires the player to pump like a shotgun each time to fire a paintball. This style marker is similar to some of the very first paintball guns ever made and has a historical place in paintball. Some players like to challenge themselves by making it harder to shoot an opponent with only one ball at a time instead of hundreds. Some players like to shoot pump guns as it is much more affordable to play a day of pump paintball than it is semi auto or ramping.
The KPS Pump is the 3rd generation of the KP series pump guns and offers a 14 inch barrel which is standard on most higher end paintball guns. This helps offset the cost as you do not need to upgrade your barrel because the KP3 already comes with a nice, upgraded barrel. With a clamping feedneck coming standard and an on/off asa air system, the KP3 comes with all of the bells and whistles most $250-$350 paintball guns should come with.
Just like all other Azodin paintball guns, the KP3 comes in multiple colors giving you, the player the choice to match your gear to your style or preference for a reasonable price. If you are in the market for a new paintball gun and like to keep your cost in mind, consider the Azodin Paintball line of guns and markers.
