longer barrel (not really nessisary)
Does what it needs to do
This marker is perfect for the begginner and It wont kill the bank ballance.
This marker was my 1st marker the reason i chose it because it was cheap R1500 ($150) for the Spyder Xtra-Super kit which includes: gun, mask, spares kit and a 12Oz cylinder.
the stock barrel length is 8.5'' (if im not mistaken) and the gun shoots quite accurately.
the 1st upgrade you get should be a longer barrel, but its not really a nessesity.
The gun is very easy to "field strip", requireing only that a push-pin be removed from a small cylindrical piece of metal, this will allow you to remove the velocity adjuster, spring, bolt and striker from the marker body and this makes cleaning a breeze.
my only problem with this gun is that if the expansion chamber located under the barrel was ever removed and replaced it would just leak constantly even if i changed the o-ring.
(im not sure if this happend on anyone elses gun, it could be an isolated incident, so i will not deduct score for this)
Great gun, Good price for what you are getting (altho I did find the mask that came in the kit was rather budget, so that was the first thing i changed), Very reliable and easy to clean.
All in all, a perfect gun for the player who is only beggining to enter the sport
