Strengths: This gun is really great for it's price. It does not break balls if you use quality brands and the rate of fire is fantastic. I don't use it on full auto and I don't reccomend it but even on single shot it can keep up with the fastest trigger fingers. The included OTP 12" barrel is all I could expect of a stock barrel and more. The accuracy is good but it's obviously not gonna compete with a cocker in that area so if you want range get an autococker or a flatline. The gun has many useful features like easy on-field battery replacement and an EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD field strip capability. You can pull the top bolt pin out, clean the bolt and put it back in the gun in under 10 seconds. The gun looks really good and the pictures dont do it justice. With barrel, it also weighs under 3 pounds which is very light. Of course, a nitro tank is required so unless you use a remote, it's gonna end up off center weighted by far unless you get a drop forward. I definetly reccomend a fiber-wrapped nitro tank to keep the gun light. The velocity variation is also not bad but I've definetly seend better. One cool thing is that you never have to chrono because whatever it is set at, it will fire at that speed all day. I have not used this gun is tournaments yet but for rec. play it is a blast and I had a really good time with it. I reccomend it over a bushmaster and people say "it's just a spyder for $600" but spyder is a great, reliable, line and it does not compare at all even to a spyder shutter (stock I mean; shut up Larry, yours is way tricked out) which I would call it's closest relative. This is not an electro-spyder! It is a gun of its own and a definite success by kingman.
Weaknesses: Well it's electronic so you have to replace the batteries which is a new idea for me. The battery usage is acutally really good, but still, you gotta change 'em. The accuracy could be better (and probably is with a 14" boomstick). It will break balls sometimes on sustained high fire rates unless you use quality paint.
Conclusion: THIS IS A GREAT GUN. It costs a fraction of the price of an angel and is pretty damn good. It comes really nice stock but with a few modifications I'm sure you could do a lot of good. Electronic markers are the way of the future and after trying this gun you will know what I mean!
