Review: The Kingman Group Techs are working over time. They came out swinging with their MR series. Next they hit a homerun with their V.S. 1. And now here is the grand slam the RS Series. The NEW Valve Spyder has designed which operates at a low pressure helps to reduce paintball breaks which can occur from air slamming into the paintball. By Tweeking the air pressure through the Inline Regulator it provides the RS, with a steady air flow for consistent shot to shot velocity even at extremely high rates of fire with CO2. The RS runs at 300 PSI Operational Pressure with CO2 or Compressed Air. This is why I got the RS.

Marker shoots Great with little to no recoil. Eyes work Great. Feed-neck holds hopper securely. Barrel is accurate, tight patterns or shot groupings all within 14’’ of center mass at aprox. 35 yards. The Delrin quick release bolt is Great, by removing the venturing THEY have created a more efficient air flow resulting in a flatter trajectory. The Firing mode membrane is easy to use. The regulator works great also. I got out my chronograph to test this out. Normally with CO2 you get spikes in Velocity at High Rates of Fire, but it appears that Kingman has eliminated this problem .Because I did not experience any thing that would be classified as a spike . I am very pleased with this marker it is a Keeper. Also little to no need for upgrades.

UPDATES will Follow as i get time to use it more .
3/24 /08 the barrel is very accurate with medium to large paint balls I try to use some smaller bore paint not as accurate but what do you expect for a stock barrel.
Still performing very well no major issues yet.
I do like using my Apex barrel system with this marker it rocks. Tippmenns beware at 20 balls per second and more distance than the flatline barrel, woodsball has taking a dramatic shift.
Conclusion: The competition better beware Spyder is BRINGING IT AND BRINGING IT HARD !!!!

Bought it March 1 online at paintball store called Zephyr paintball.

Spyder paintball guns are considered low end because of the tube on tube design. It has very little to do with performance or components: it mostly has to do with category. It matters little though: Spyder’s performe just as well as some of the more costly competitors.

Zephyr Paintball has the hook-up for the RS for sure. Many other places probably have them now. I ordered mine from there on the 2nd, it arrived by the end of the week.

RS is a hot Spyder for sure, but I've already started building mine up.

I have almost the exact same setup for my Spyder VS1. I really enjoyed your review. I can tell you like Spyders almost as much as I do. Powerhouse performers. What else needs to be said.
