The Kingman Spyder Sonix 2007 is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Red Spyder Sonix '07
All-American 14" Barrel
New barrel never hurts
A bit loud
Trigger's a bit heavy to walk
Nothing else really
So like many of you on here, I was looking to buy a gun one day. I didn't want to spend much money, because it was my first gun, but I would also want good performance. So, I went to my local paintball store and was confronted with the cheapest guns they had in stock. After much thought, I chose this gun and was very pleased. I brung it to my local field a few weeks after the purchase and was very happy. It never chopped, and was very accurate. I recommend this gun for anyone who had just started out and wants a good reliable gun. This gun is by far my favorite mechanical gun.
Buy it now!! It's great if your a begineer or moderate player alike!
This gun is great for begineers that like the sport. If you play speedball its great. If you play scenario it's great. I've used this gun in both and I am very pleased.

Somewhat Accurate with a nice barrel
Pieces of the gun literally fell apart while using it
I bought this gun on ebay for $60 because i didn't know anything bout paintball and thought it was an upgrade from my Tippmann 98 Custom but it wasn't. This gun was much worse than my tippmann 98 and it broke about 3 times for me in the first couple of weeks i had it. Eventually i got sick of how crappy the gun was and it was more trouble than it was worth so i sold it.
The fact is that i have used alot of Spyders, SP Vibes and Ions, and a few tippmanns but this was the worst gun i ever shot. As i was playing one day when i first got it. I moved up in a game so after i ran to the bunker i lifted my gun again and saw that it had literally fallen apart on me
Feels good (solid) seldom chops balls
Easy to upgrade
Grip is a little too close
This is a great gun, superior accuracy (epically with 20" barrel) with good fire rates.
It rarely chops balls and has a nice feel when holding it. The grip is a little too close but that makes only a minor difference.
This is one good beginner gun at a good price!
Sonix 07 with 20oz anti-siphon and VL-200 hopper w/ghetto clamping feedneck
The barrel and feedneck, maybe an x-chamber/reg
stupid easy to clean/service
Picked this baby up from action village for 65 bucks, and upon opening the packaging I was impressed. I was expected something much less in both fit and finish, it is after all a starter gun. The barrel is OK, it is longer than most stock barrels but still leaves much to be disired in the accuracy department. My test firing was done with 'visable impact' brand paint, VL 200 hopper, and a 12oz co2 bottle, in 500 rounds not a single chop. Accuracy was decent at 25-30, Id say fist sized groups.
I would recommend the marker to anyone new to owning a marker (it can be upgraded alot) or somone new to paintball. This is not a high end marker by any means it does everything 65 bucks should.
Light, Accurate for stock barrel, comfortable, Durable, Pull pin cocking nob
Loud, Slow, Liquid CO2 clouds
Well today i went out and used my sonix for the first time. It was a great begginer marker. It was loud compared to my brother's R1. The stock barrel is decent but nothing special. I had Co2 clouds and the barrel was cold as ice after shooting quickly. The gun came with a 12 ounce Co2 tank and that lasted me 4 games with a little left when we had it refilled. The gun has a huge trigger pull killing your speed. It was pretty good though and with a few upgrades it could be pretty good. The gun didn't chop once for me not joking. You would only need an electronic hopper if you bought a electronic frame.
I would recommend this to beginners and intermediate players if your willing to pay extra for some good ups. My rating is based on begginer guns.

SP ION with Q-lock feedneck,New designz Blade trigger,360 qev,firebolt
VL Evo 3
Pure energy 48/3000
Not vey heavy
Not that expensive
This was my first pb gun,and i think i made a good descision in buying it.It has worked really
good and i have not had many problems with it.The only 2 things i thought should be fixed were the barrel and the feedneck.it is very easy to dissamble,especially with the quick disconect pin,that lets you slide the bolt out and clean around there.It is also very durable,once i accidentally dropped it on concrete,and there wasnt a scratch on it.
Now i use an ION,but for a begginer gun this gun is really good.
If you are a begginer at paintball,this is a good gun to get

Very reliable for the beginner,
easy to take apart and fix, maintain
Triggger has no adjustment and a long pull
stock spring to hard
The gun works well. for the price you cant go wrong. if you get tired of its slow shooting you can make it a full automatic with just an allen key. everything comes apart very easily. the bolt and internals come out with the pull of a pin. i had issues with the spring being too hard. dont bother with the spring kit just cut the spring you have. with the spring kit and the lightest spring it was still shooting over 300bps. you cant shoot very fast because the trigger has a very long pull to it and it will chop. the stock barrel is ok but you get a lot of strays.
For the price this is a great gun....you cant go wrong
for the beginner a great gun i wouldent recomend it as a 2nd or 3rd gun.
i currently use it as my backup and lend it out to friends if they dont have guns
i gave it an 8 because the price and reliability are exellent for a beginner gun
Over all this gun is great but other than looks and the small size theres not much to the gun its simple accurate reliable and very durable the one thing that enraged me was getting it new out of the box theres some tuning involved before you can take it in to the arena you might have to cut the springs about a cm shorter but after that you have a fine tuned machine
This is a great gun because its tough except its non military looks
This gun is great. It continues to chop the balls however. My friend has the same exact gun. His doesn't chop them a often. Great other wise. Light and powerful. The barrel is a little short for my liking. It's very easy to take apart and clean. An electric hopper makes it a lot better.
If you have 50 bucks more I would get an electric one. Its nice to have options on full auto.

stock but getting a 16" cp classic .685 bore barrel for it
cp classic barrel
Cheap ($40 used)
Not really any
A new barrel would make it more accurate
This is the first gun that I bought and I think that it is great I have played at one of my local parks competing with very experienced playes and much more high end guns and I managed. I got some pretty satisfying hits and overall had a lot of fun with this gun. I haven't had any problems with this gun yet and don't expect to. Very simple to clean and take apart
overall a great gun for a beginner.
If you are pretty new to the sport buy the gun and you will not be disappointed
great all around gun.
