The Spyder RS will run on Co2 similar to other entry level markers, but more efficiently with the Rapid Charge Inline Regulator. Operational at 300 PSI the RS runs at a fairly low working pressure reducing premature paintball breaks from air impacting the surface of a paintball. "SE Technology" or Synergy Engineered Technology products can utilize either Co2 or Compressed Air as a propellant. Manipulation of the air pressure through the Fast Charge Inline Regulator provides the RS with a steady air flow for consistent shot to shot velocity even at extremely high rates of fire.

The Kingman Group Techs are working over time. They came out swinging with their MR series. Next they hit a homerun with their V.S. 1. And now here is the grand slam the RS Series. The NEW Valve Spyder has designed which operates at a low pressure helps to reduce paintball breaks which can occur from air slamming into the paintball. By Tweeking the air pressure through the Inline Regulator it provides the RS, with a steady air flow for consistent shot to shot velocity even at extremely high rates of fire with CO2. The RS runs at 300 PSI Operational Pressure with CO2 or Compressed Air. This is why I got the RS.
Marker shoots Great with little to no recoil. Eyes work Great. Feed-neck holds hopper securely. Barrel is accurate, tight patterns or shot groupings all within 14â€™â€™ of center mass at aprox. 35 yards. The Delrin quick release bolt is Great, by removing the venturing THEY have created a more efficient air flow resulting in a flatter trajectory. The Firing mode membrane is easy to use. The regulator works great also. I got out my chronograph to test this out. Normally with CO2 you get spikes in Velocity at High Rates of Fire, but it appears that Kingman has eliminated this problem .Because I did not experience any thing that would be classified as a spike . I am very pleased with this marker it is a Keeper. Also little to no need for upgrades.
UPDATES will Follow as i get time to use it more .
3/24 /08 the barrel is very accurate with medium to large paint balls I try to use some smaller bore paint not as accurate but what do you expect for a stock barrel.
Still performing very well no major issues yet.
I do like using my Apex barrel system with this marker it rocks. Tippmenns beware at 20 balls per second and more distance than the flatline barrel, woodsball has taking a dramatic shift.
The competition better beware Spyder is BRINGING IT AND BRINGING IT HARD !!!!

sonix, autococker, dm5, the rs keeps up with the dm5,... almost
48 3000 crossman tank
clamping feekneck, twist lock sucks, maybe new barrel
Accuracy, reg. and speed
Trigger, feedneck, buttons
Good gun, kingman did well. Great stock barrel, no kick, pretty fast, the eyes work good, no chops yet. It has very little kick, and you get a lot of shots out of a 20 oz. co2 tank. The battery is hard as hell to fit in, dont ruin any wires. The bolt is nice. You NEED an electric hopper for this gun.
Good gun for its money, might want to go for the 08 electra insted, same price but leap circut board, and saber trigger
3rd generation invert mini, halo b w/rip, pure energy 68/45, freak barrel kit
A new feedneck is a Must.
A new barrel wouldnt hurt.
easy bolt removal
can run on co2
My brother bought this gun a month ago just for recball. The first thing we noticed is the speed drastically decreases when the eyes are on. For every three times your fingers hits the trigger one ball is fired. Of course full auto is a joke. Three round burst is not that bad with the eyes off. The threads on the feedneck and gun are BAD. One good bump and they WILL strip. Buy a new feedneck before you play with this gun.However, this gun is an option for those seeking their first electronic marker. Its cheap (about 170) and it doesn't chop balls like many other guns on the market.
This is an okay gun. My recommendation is to buy the 08 electra instead. Its faster and lighter and costs about the same.
i have had quiet a few spyders; spyder victor 1, syder victor 2, syder xtra, spyder imagine , spyder rs
empire twister barrel
cp clamping feed neck
halo B with rip drive
pure energy 48 ci 3000 psi
an electric hopper!!!
a different feed neck
new board mabey?
Good for bigginers
Can take co2
Needs body kits
Needs more firing moods
Buttons on back of frame
This is a very good gun for beginers no dought about that. It is preety fast compared to the oter lower grade spyders i have had, i like the trigger and how you can adjust it in 3 positions. also i like the acs on and off valve knob. it shoots really good with ony 1 or 2 chops so far, and it has a 2 peice barrel witch is always a plus. the only thing i dislike about this gun was when i went to turn it on the buttons were like pushd back so i would have to take my nail in push it hard just to turn it on/ off or change the firing mode. so i just ended up taking off the plastic sticker thing.
this is a really great product, and my best gun so far so im going to have to give it a 9. If you want a good gun for the money and you dont have a nitrous tank, i would go for this gun. I only give it a 9 and not a 10 because of the button problem.

Everything. its heavy , no clamping feedneck, crappy asa, and all bolts get stripped.
This gun is really bad probably worse than a Vibe and deserves a zero, the first time I got this gun it blew up. then i fixed it and then it started flashing orange lights. Then the gun started shooting by its self and thats not good. If the gun worked and was lighter it be alright but its one of the worst guns if used and owned and if used alot of guns.
Dont get this gun if u want to have to buy another one and if it works u cant play speedball with it. It weighs like 8 pounds
