Review: Ok... i recieved this as a christmas gift so i haven't actually paid for any of it, but still, its been a loosy experiance, sure it looks hot, feels good when you're holding it, and could scare the crap out of newbies... but that's about all it has going for it. First time i brought it to a field it just gushed CO2 out of the barrel, I then had to pay extra to purchase a rental for that day after wasting an hour taking it apart and seeing what was wrong. I've sense fiddled with it and somehow got it to work alright, but then it started chopping every ball I shot. However I'm stuck with what i have and my parents are anal about me buying a new gun, so I've decided, to waste time and money to gut this entire piece of trash and replace almost everything with Spyder parts, new springs, new trigger frame (the old trigger pull is about an inch long...), new barrel, and possibly a better bolt if i can find one that will work. Hopefully a decent gun will come out of all this but still, don't waste the time or the tons of money it will take to make this gun competitive, the only good thing i can say about it is i got the marker and the new barrel for free, so i can't really claim i lost anything out of it, just my patience. Do NOT buy this marker, 'if looks could kill' then this gun is the exception to that cliche.
Conclusion: Don't get it, it's a waste, sure you can gut the thing with new spyder parts but WHY?, just go out there, spend maybe 20 more bucks and buy a better Spyder... I'm giving it a 4 just because it might actually work well with all the new upgrades, but without them it's a 1-2
