To keep things in perspective, I thought I'd post some reviews from that same source, if only because it's amusing to me.
Kingman Spyder Compact 2 in 1 Java
everything. only 110 dollars (easily worth 150$) easy maintence, accurate, great for beginers and advanced...(after a couple of upgrades.) doesnt break any kind of balls except brass eagle... (what gun doesn't?), not a co2 gas hog
nothing really, the barrel is not the greatest but believe me it is not bad.
no upgrades needed unless you are playing professional, although a new barrel couldn't hurt =)
get this gun you will be happy that you did, accurate to the bone.
This gun is great. You cannot do anything wrong to it. It is easily upgradable and easy to clean. The gun shoots incredibly accurate with an aftermarket barrel and is very, very, quiet. I use a J&J Ceramic barrel and the gun is quiet as a whisper.
Stock Barrel is ok. spend the $45 and buy the J&J.
When I first used this gun, i was on a team with 2 other friends attacking 4 guys. My team mates used a Commado 2 and a Pro/Carbine. We railed them. We won all of our games and i can say i increased by game dramatically with this gun. It is amazing. The low pressure chamber helps 100%. I would reccommend this to anyone who wants a fairly inexpensive gun that can compete with any marker on the market. I'd give it a 10 but no gun is perfect. Well......This one is near perfect so what the hell.
This is a great gun for anyone of any skill level. It has a quick recock, and is a very accurite gun. Once the velocity is dialed in to perfection, the gun is unbeatable.
People think that a more expensive gun is better
This is an all around good gun. If you add an expansion chamber, and a better barrel, than you basically have the shutter model. I love this gun and i would defenatly recomend it to anyone.
I didn't post it to be a punk, but yeah, keep things in perspective. People aren't going to say their gun is crap.
It's hard to be very objective with your own equipment, for some. I'm not at all saying it's a bad gun or suggesting that it might be... but you could save money building one yourself.
Anyways, Thumper. As I said, the 30 psi pertains only to the FRONT END PNEUMATICS. That's not the operating pressure of the entire gun. I'm going to -estimate- it runs around 200 or so, but that's a stab in the dark, and anyone can feel free to correct me. Whatever the pressure is doesn't really matter as much as how well they match the springs in the gun, how restricted the airflow is, etc.
As a general rule, lower pressure is easier on the internals of the gun... and a side effect of that is a bit more stable gun when firing. It can make the gun more quiet, and beyond that, I'm not sure what's been proven and what's popular myth.
