Review: I got this gun at Academy for about 70 bucks. It came with the feed neck and a barrel plug. The first thing I did when I took it out of the plastic covering was just stare at it. The body is pretty much aluminum. It was amazing looking, just beautiful. I've never held such a thing in my hands. The grips are nice, with the Spyder logo and a nice type of rubber.

But the Spyder Victor 2009 is basically a "Plain-Jane" marker. It's just a very watered down version of the Sonix. It has no gas-through-foregrip, your standard feedneck (non clamping or twist lock), or anything special. It's just as basic as you can get, which also makes the gun really lightweight. I really don't have a problem with it having nothing special on it.

The gun is alright on air, getting maybe 550-750 shots on a Ninja compressed air tank (forgot what PSI it is) on a regular Summer day.

It's honestly really not that accurate. I don't know how to explain this section, but getting a Freak kit or Dye Boomstick or maybe even a Custom Products Two-Piece kit, it may be a little more accurate. I have a 32 Degrees Terminator barrel ($12.95), and I really dont see a difference in accuracy.
Conclusion: This gun is just your "Plain-Jane" marker. Nothing special on it. I would get it as your first gun and upgrade it or get a new gun as you get more into the sport.

Accuracy does not depend on your gun. I am not disputing this review because you rated this gun a six. (This forum is overbloated with "10"s) I am disputing this review because your gun isn't what causes accuracy. For more info go to this topic:

It's not a electronic gun. It is meant to be a gun that you start with, not play and use for the rest of your life. Its a really good gun. Why down it
