^ I agree.
Spyders are great markers, and are pretty reliable. Especially for beginners because they are cheap to buy and upgrade. Plus, many many upgrades.
If I were you, I'd buy it, and use it until your addiction forces you to buy another. But for now, it shall suit you really well.
UPGRADES I'd Reccomend:
1. New Barrel, unless he has one.
-J & J Ceramics are cost effective, but amazing!
2. X-Chamber or Regulator
-Personally, I'd go with the Palmers Male Stabalizer. Works with Co2 and HPA!
3. New Bolt and or Internals
-You can find venturi bolts all over the net for Spyders. They help with smoothness of operation, and air efficiency.
-Converting to HPA over Co2 is huge. HPA is much more consistant, clean and safe. Co2 tends to wear down O-Rings after a while, and can damage internals after a while!
-E-grip allows you to use full auto, 3, and 6 round bursts, and semi.
Hope it helps!
