My first gun. Great gun to play with. Only recommendation is to buy a more accurate barrel, but the one it comes with is decent. Just remember to tighten the screws after every play because they tend to loosen just a smidge. I've had no problems with it except when I put the detent in wrong. (My fault)
Overall good gun.

First Thoughts:
First of all, I got this for like, my 12th or 13th birthday, and I am now 15. I must say after a year of inactivity, it still worked great.

Appearance:
It's ok looking. It pisses me off when a gun has the 45 degree feedneck. Anyway, it looks like a military gun with the mag and everything.

Performance:
Loud. Super loud. I was in a little hut shooting, and it sounds like a million firecrackers. It hurts my ears and scares everyone in the hut I was in. Other than that, it was an angel (not the gun). It work significantly. A little heavy and a huge setup with the ASA being out really far. Also, a tip of advice, since the ASA is so far out, the grip of the gun will get in the way if the tank regulator is too short. So, if you have a Guerrilla air tank, you might want to get the regulator changed until you get another gun.

Stock barrel sucks, though. It's rifled, so it's really loud

Reliability:
Broke down on me once. It was leak. It was no problem, since I was playing with a gun tech. Playing with this and CO2 is no bueno. It will freeze the breech or somewhere around there and you won't be able to use it very well. Get it fixed before all that.

Haven't had a problem. Just get an HPA tank so you won't have a problem.

Value:
Awesome little gun for the price. It's not too heavy. If you're looking to keep this gun for a long time, make a little bit of upgrades. If this is your first gun, don't do that. Great price, and it's a great gun and won't disappoint you.

Pros:
-Cheap
-Reliable
-Durable
-Easy to hold
-Pretty efficient

Cons:
-Loud
-Stock barrel sucks
-Might leak
-Spyder threaded barrel (duh), so you won't be able to purchase a Lurker barrel or whatever and use it.


I take time on my reviews. I hope you liked this one.

I picked this up used, without the stock it is awesome. Fires great, easy to clean, and looks nice. I wouldnt sink a lot of money into it, and it is just a mech blowback, but for a starter gun, i think it does the job nicely. Fairs well for a loaner when we play woodsball.

Ride it hard and put it up wet.

Pros:
I love using this because I love the way it shoots. When I freshly lube the bolt and after my upgrades, it shoots really nicely. I prefer it over the Tippmann 98 because of the way it shoots. it is also extremely easy to take apart. this is the easiest gun i have ever disassembled.

Cons:
the feedneck sucks so i had to replace it for $25 to get a clamping feedneck that allows the loader to be vertical without an elbow. having to use plastic elbows is really annoying. i would also suggest a force feed loader for it to prevent chopping because of the feedneck. also, get a better barrel because the stock one chopped a bit for me at 300 fps. last, this one is personal, but i would suggest doing something with the stock or getting a raised tactical rail. it does not allow for goggle clearance. i made my own piece to replace the stock but i know a lot of people who just leave the stock off with nothing to replace it.

overall, i would give it an 8/10 for the price

When me and my friends started paintballing they all got these guns. They were awesome at first and I was super jealous. Then they wanted to shoot faster and have a lighter set up like the G4 I bought. Now they are trying to sell those guns for money for a G4. I would rather put the 90 towards an E1 or even a A5.

Kingman Group Spyder MR1 Just your typical spyder. It always worked, the only problem was it was extremely ugly.
