Valken Proton

So I finally was able to test out my Proton yesterday and it was pretty nice. It was easily smoother than my fenix and the roller bearing trigger felt nice. I had a couple barrel breaks out of the 1000 rounds I fired but I blame the low quality paint.

Pros Smooth
Nice board
Trigger is good
I like the Pull out on/off switch in the trigger guard
felt nice in my hands, being 5'5" it was perfect
The on/off asa works as intended

Cons
The rubber grip is also the battery cover and doesnt completely seal so dirt could get in and mess with the noid. I plan on fixing this with a little bit of tape til I have to change the battery.
I don't know if this how they all work but once the tank runs low on air it started leaking from the asa. I got the tank refilled and it stopped leaking.

Not a con but more of a note: When turning on marker I'd not have the marker aired due to the fact your fingers could bump the trigger while pulling on the power switch.

If there's not enough air, the O-Ring might not seat properly. It'll need the pressure to make the proper seal.

Do you have to pull the power switch?

Yes, the power switch pulls out to turn on, pushes in to turn off. It's an actual physical SWITCH, not just a contact like most markers.

Pushes in to turn off? Sounds terrible. What if you accidentally turn it off? I'm sure there is something to prevent this, but just thinking...

Its not that easy to push in. There is an oring on the switch to give a little more resistance and its far enough away from the trigger that you won't hit it while walking the trigger. I'm confident that even in slides it will be fine.
