Review: This is a pretty decent gun, first I'll start with what I liked about it then start complaining. Well, it looks pretty nice and the ACS bolt works really good, it didn't chop at all out of 1000 rounds the first time i used it however my barrels gettin' old and is gettin all scratched and might need to be replaced soon cuz it seems like the barrels causing a couple breaks (cuz the paint is only where the scratches are, like halfway down the barrel). I like the little gauge it comes in handy to see how full your tank is if you use co2, plus it looks good which doesn't hurt. Also with it being my first electro I think it shoots pretty fast.

Now to start criticizing- first, the regulator doesn't actually regulate...I turned it forever and the pressure didnt go anywhere. Second, the regulator comes a bit loose and when it does the macroline fitting gets loose and leaks a tad, but you have to just tighten it and you're good, it was a really minor problem. The grips are what you'd expect from Kingman, just enough to say they're grips. I'm not a huge fan of the trigger, it's not the blade one and it's kinda hard to walk, but you can adjust it really close which helps. I'm also not big on the feed neck- it's good that you can tighten it, but is kinda crappy for holding your hopper in place real well. Also it's pretty heavy, but suck it up princess.

But after fixing it up a bit like new grips and a barrel, i find myself really liking this gun and it's definately one of the best Spyders out there and has a crapload of potential.
Conclusion: This gun is really likeable, and the very minor problems aren't annoying at all, just the gun getting used to itself. Trust me I'm not one to baby a gun and I find this gun easy to use. All the weaknesses mentioned don't actually affect play and really deal with personal preferences.
