Review: These grips are excellent. Simple to install, and they fit snug enough to close up the gaps that the stock grips leave. Honestly, you can't even call the original plastic pieces that Kingman provides "grips". They're more like placeholders for whatever grip upgrade you decide to buy.

One thing I liked about it was the fact that nothing obstructs the CAMD 2.0 window (unlike some OTHER grip manufacturers products), so no problem seeing what firing mode I was in.

Grips were comfortable through a full day of scenario play. My hand never slipped from the grip, either. No hand fatigue at the end of the day like I've had with the stock grips for the Pilot ACS and the MR-1.

I've seen some people complain on forums that the grips impede the solenoid on their e-triggers. I've had no problems with that. Every time I pulled the trigger (whether in semi, 3 or 6 round burst, or full auto) I had appropriate response.

The only negative (in theory) that I can see is the price for these grips. Even there I lucked out as I was able to pick them up for $15 on eBay. So I can't even ding them for that.

Ten all the way for this product.
Conclusion: If you dislike the original equipment "grips" that Kingman provides for their spyder markers, give these grip replacements a try. You won't be disappointed.
