Sticking to semi-auto markers, I have used the following: Spyder Agressor, Spyder XTRA, Tippman A-4, Tippman 98, Avenger
- DYE sticky grips
- 20 oz CO2
- Red Dot sight
DYE Sticky Grips, an electronic hopper, ACI elbow (fastest feeding elbows on the market)
- The most "bang" for your buck
- Smooth Trigger
- No leaks
- Pro features
- Speed adjust, as with most guns, may unwind due to gun vibration
This gun is an awesome buy, and should be considered as such, for anyone who has even the slightest knowledge in paintball. It is "feature rich" and even though it is very similar to the Spyder XTRA I would rate it as superior to the Kingman version. What is most impressive is that the gun is awesome right out of the box! No ball breaks.
***Notice - As with any new gun you should strip it, lubricate it and tighten all of the screws before firing it. Most people forget to do this which commonly results in ball chops and poor accuracy and the manufacturer gets blamed due to the person's ignorance.***
One of the coolest things about this gun is that with the pull of a single pin you can field strip it and get it all back in less than 15 sec, but you should rarely have to anyways.
In closing, this is a must buy for people who are both new or experienced in paintball looking for an awesome semi with all of the features that pros come to expect for an incredible price! ACI has been in the business for a while now and every inch of their experience and knowledge is materialized in this marker.
A Must Buy.
If you are looking for a high-quality marker with professional features, out of its league performance, and aren't looking to give up your left nut than this is by far the best choice you could make.
9 out of 10

I found this to be the most helpful advice of all.
I saw the same kind of thing happen earlier this year when made a purchase (unrelated to paintball). Many people had written glowing reviews of the item I was considering, but a few had nothing good to say about it. Turned out that those folks probably didn't have any idea as to how to use it properly. I had a few of the same initial problems as they did, but I read the manual, found the solution, and the product was as good as the best reviews had said.
I have been offered this as an upgrade to my first gun purchase (they were out of stock on the Kingman Spyder X-Tra) and I think I will take it. I will be sure to post my own review.
