Review: I just bought this marker today and it came in the classic Spyder cardbord box with foam on the inside. It comes with The gun, barrel, barrel sleeve, multipul acceries (like small wrench, allen keys, screws, and o-rings),and the Manual. With this marker i was a little disapointed when there was no Spyder re-chargeable battery so you might have to "splerge" a little on 9v batteries.(but if your playing paintball you should have alot of money anyways)

First thing i did was try and fit in the battery which was a challange to most marker setups. When you look inside the spot that hold the battery is covered by wires. It took me a good 10 min. just to install the battery by taking out the wires and carefully putting them back in.(but that just might be me... im kinda slow). When you put the cover back on the seel in nice and i didn't see any gaps for paint to get in.

It turned on with no prob and the modes work fine. PSP ramping i love so to finally have it on a cheap low end marker like Spyder was very nice. Of course with any magnetic trigger you will have a good response time. I like the way this one can be ajusted three different ways. Tension, front slack, and back slack. It is a great stock trigger and with a little practice i got very comfortible with it.

The On/Off valve is very basic but easy to use. I didn't expect much from this and you get what you pay for but i still like the setup.

This marker it very quiet for a spyder (exception is the VS2) but not nearly as quiet as Dye markers. The blowback is very slight and if you have a stedy hand then you will manage. When firing constantly you barely notice the blowback and your aim gets a little easier.

The barrel looks very nice and pretty good accuracy. Not as good as any store bought barrles but farely good for stock. With the many ported holes it is "quiet" (but with a couple rounds shot off most of the other team will know where you are), but i still recommend getting a new barrel.

It is a very compact and light gun. It feels very comfortable in hand and will have very little trouble with balance. The trigger frame is massive but if you have crazy fingers it's the right gun for you.
Conclusion: For $199.99 i think it is a very good deal. For a Low-End Electronic Marker it has performed very well and for beginner players this is a great gun to by. All in all i think this is the best gun spyder has ever made and i cant wait to use it for tournaments.
9 out of 10
