3 months
Products Used:
spyder compact, spyder tl
Marker Setup: rebel xtreme, J&J ceramic , 20 oz pure energy tank, Tipman hopper with APP cover.
a better barrel
a better expansion chamber
Strengths: once velocity is set, accurate. Good range, doesnt chop paint
Weaknesses: dry out of the box, bolts are loose, barrel
Review: My gun gets very good range and i have only broke 1 ball so far, that was from rapid firing. Once you set yor velocity it is pretty accurate. It gets good distance in rec ball.

The bad part is, when you go to rapid fire, its the same thing as runnin your tank right into your gun cuz the expansion chamber is only a one stage. When you get it out of the box oil the WHOLE GUN, it is very dry. Also tighten it. It is sorta loud till you get a better barrel but if ure in rec ball who cares. With my gun, the meter its started to leak and the connectre pin snapped while i wuz playin but the gun still worked. Also it is kinda heavy, but, i have a 20 oz on mine which makes it heavier but if u have a long barrel, Hello snipers, it evens out the weight. I would reccomend a big bore type balls, the stock barrels bore is big, pmi premium slide right through, which makes it inaccurate.

I have sumthin 2 say bout the a$$es who wnna bi*ch about the gun. umm first off, co2 changes velocity if ure in the sun so dont blame the gun, just get nitro, second the ball eats paint if u use a small one, thats when it suk. Also for everyone whos mad about the one stage expansion, HELLO its called a MINI expansion chamber for a reason, ure definately not gnna take this gun a play front man witha bunch of pple with cockers and angels. Also the thing locks up if u dont oil it. The ball dentent only suk if u try 2 fix it and when u go to put it bak together u push the bolt too far up, cuz then u cut it off. If ure line leaks take off ure tank and unscrww it and put sum teflon tape on it, also known as plumbers tape. It is only 69 cents and good to have on u. it also takes less that 2 seconds. i dont have an actual field but i play with guys with high end markers and they dont bag on me havin this thinng cuz its cheap, turn it into a sniper gun, thats wat i did. it worls good. One more thing, i really have just a couple of minor problems with my gun on field, ud think id have more because i play in a sanded area. i took off my sight rail and if i get sandinto the top of the gun u kill ure bolt not to mention ure gun. But heck i see no problems with my gun, and dont spend like 6 hours to try 2 get the gun in order. take it apartt, clean it and put it together again works fine. Dont spend time workin on other pples guns it makes no sense, not ures not ure problem.

In any case its a good gun for a begginer and i reccomend it, if u clean it after ure done playin, to ne one who wants 2 get into the sport, cuz it already comes with alot of upgrades.

IMPORTANT***** IF any thing goes wrong ure warrenty shouldcover it, i have mine from inter. paintball .
Conclusion: I would reccomend this to anyone who wants a cheap gun, its pretty reliable Perfect for begginers or once in a while players.
