Tippmann 98 - about the same in ability
Brass Eagle Avenger - cant compare
Avalon Combat, 16 inch whisper barrel, custom drop foreward, Spyder e-grip CAMD trigger frame, Ricochet Apache Electronic Hopper
Barrel, nothing over 16"
A new bolt
Accepts spyder parts
small & light
Powerfeed is threaded, so other hoppers dont fit well
barrel isnt too good
I got this gun for my birthday and I was a little nervous before bringing it out into the field after reading some reviews. When I got there, however, i was pleasently surprised. It was light compared to my old tippmann 98, and relatively fast and accurate. When I got a new barrel it helped a lot, and with the e-grip and electric hopper I can shoot 16+ with ease.
Overall, I would reccomend this gun, but it might be good to just get a regular spyder, just because the threaded hopper is very annoying and the customer service at Avalon is horrendous.
