Manufacturer exclusive paint, cannot be shot left-handed
I've been looking around for a while for a pstol, and couldn't decide between the tpx/tiberius and this. I went with the spyder for its compact size, and air efficiency. Right out of the package, it is impressive. It has a good feel, a nice heft to it and is very comfortable.The box itself is very well organized, and there is an abundance of extra parts in a little pouch in case you need them. Airing it up is a breeze, just insert cartridge and turn the lever. The paint loads nicely, buy if you're a clumsy guy like me with huge fingers, it will take a little practice. If you go hollywood and slam the magazine into the grip, expect paint to fall out of the barrel.If you are not left handed, this is a breeze to shoot. If you are left handed, watch out for the mag release, as you will probably hit the button and drop the clip.Update: What I am doing to shoot this left-handed is to fire the trigger with my middle finger, using the natural spread of my fingers to go AROUND the mag release. I seem to have a problem with chopping, but I don't have a chronograph so it may be a velocity problemUPDATE: The chopping problem seemed to be in the paint, as soon as I opened the extra paint I ordered the problem vanished-WHEW!.The range and accuracy of this pistol is IMPRESSIVE. I shot off a clip, and at 25-30 yards it was a tight grouping, I didnt expect this! it is very quiet, and air efficient which is nice. As I learn more about this marker, I will update this review.
As of right now, yes I would recommend this product, as it seems very well thought out.I'm giving it only 8/10, as it is too early to tell. But other than my chopping problem, I find no fault with it UPDATE: I am changing my rating to 9/10, as my chopping problem was the paint, not the pistol. I would give it a 10/10 if it weren't for the magazine release button being where it is
8 out of 10

Being lefthanded is a problem to get used to with this pistol. the magazine release button is just behind the trigger on the left hand side, so your middle finger will probably trip the release. What I do (I'm lefty) is i pull the trigger with my middle finger on my left hand, so the natural spread of my fingers goes right around the mag release.
