Review: I was able to adjust and test this gun for my teammate who wanted me to clear his gun while he was out of town.

To start off the gun isn't that bad looking. Not the most gorgeous thing you've seen but it's not ugly by any means.

I was looking through the firing modes and turned the eyes off to hear the solenoid click, but it doesn't click, it goes BANG! The solenoid makes a loud bang sound like most Spyders do. I know it was intentional because of the design.

I tried to walk the trigger but had SEVERE problems. To start off the trigger is made of plastic, and is flimsy. A new aluminum trigger is recommended. Secondly, the trigger is has a double return, one spring and one magnet. This makes the return on the trigger very slow and stiff. VERY difficult to walk. I solved this problem by taking the trigger spring out and leaving the magnet return in. This helps A LOT!!! However, if you do take your trigger spring out be warned that it does void the warranty.

I gassed up the gun and was going to shoot some re-balls through it, but I had problems with the feed neck. I put a halo in and was turning it so it was facing right. When I was adjusting it I took it back off to try again the o-rings on the inside of the feed neck popped out. THEY ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO PUT BACK IN!!! You can still use a hopper but it is extremely loose and will fall off if you were sliding. Anyway, I gassed it up and ran 3 hoppers of re-balls through it. IT RIPS! Kind of loud, but still fast. Of course if I had not taken the trigger spring out it would have been a completely different story.

Conclusion: All in all this is great gun for the price. Light and fast with some minor adjustments. Needs some things fixed or replaced though. Recommended to those who have a tight budget or are looking for a gun to fool around with.

Let me get this straight, you borrowed a gun, then ripped out the trigger spring thus voiding his warrenty? Incidentally, if you know how to adjust the trigger this isn't necessary- you definately overstate the poor quality. Then you ripped the o-rings out of the feedneck? If I was your friend you'd own a new gun!

Dispute:
There is no magnetic tension in an SLG, the review cannot be accurate.
