Tactical Upgrades for the Valken M17
Upgrading the Valken M17!
The Valken M17 is an outstanding choice for mag-fed paintball, tactical force-on-force training and even makes a formidable less than lethal option for law enforcement and home defense! However, it’s most popular use is as a mag-fed paintball gun for tactical mag-fed paintball games and scenario events! While it’s a great, feature-packed mag-fed paintball gun right out of the box, the Valken M17 offers various paths for upgrade that will improve its performance and allow users to build a formidable custom mag-fed paintball machine!
Before starting down the upgrade path for the Valken M17, the first thing a new owner should decide is exactly what type of mag-fed paintball they plan on playing with the M17. Upgrades that might make it a great CQB weapon for close quarters battle may not be ideal for longer range engagements, for example. Once a player’s preferred style of play, from up-close-and-personal CQB to longer range engagements as a designated marksman or quasi-sniper with First Strike rounds, is dialed-in, the proper upgrades can be selected to make the M17 perform that job with a high degree of performance to devastate the opposition!
Sights and Scopes
As the Valken M17 features a flat-top receiver ready to accept a scope or sight, adding such a sight to the paintball gun is quick and easy! Valken offers an array of red dot sights and scopes that can be dialed-in to produce devastating accuracy, especially when used with high-quality round paintballs like Valken Graffiti or First Strike stabilized rounds! For players who plan to go the close-quarters battle route, engaging at close to medium range, a red dot sight is an ideal choice as it allows fast target acquisition and can be quickly dialed-in for any range a player might prefer. Players looking to stay back in the tree line and play a designated marksman role, picking off key players or knocking hopper-equipped players out of the game at scenario events, a variable zoom scope like the Valken 1-4x20 scope is perfect! This scope is affordable, rugged, and is standard with mounting hardware, and can allow a player to zoom in for surgical strikes, or open up for a wider field of view if the battle closes in.
Stocks and Air
While most will choose to run the Valken M17 in its standard configuration with a small, 13 cubic inch paintball compressed air tank in the stock, other options ARE available! Valken offers telescopic, remote-ready stocks that will allow a player to switch from on-gun air to a remote line, and utilize a larger compressed air tank carried in a pouch on a loadbearing vest. This drastically decreases the size and weight of the M17 for CQB, and allows a user to carry more magazines and more paintballs, multiplying their effectiveness every time they step on the field!
