With one pull of the top cocking knob a player can slide the entire Delrin bolt out of the marker and gain easy access to all internal portions of the breach for field cleaning.

The Kingman Spyder Sonix 2007 is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Rentals, Tippmann 98 customs....(other friends guns), tippmann x7;Invert mini
2007 Spyder Sonix;HALO Rip Drive Hopper; Smart Parts 16" linear Rifled Barrell
A longer barrell is nice to have.
Great range. Very accurate. Feels Great In Your Hands.
Needs a better barrell. other than that none.
This is a great gun, it is awesome. i kill at speedball with this gun, i got 9 people out in a game with it. much better than all of the tippmann guns i have shot. (invert minis are better though.) Other than the invert i havent found a better gun.
Get It! once again thi is an insanely accurate gun. you wont regret getting this gun.
Spyder Sonix 2007
14 inch brass eagle flat line barrel
Ricochet apache loader limited edition camo
new trigger or trigger frame
Trigger to big that will probably prevent rapid fire for most players.
truth be told i have never owned a marker, only rented and borrowed. so I asked for this one as a christmas present and my dad had no truble. first its cheap, and its so good you wouldnt belive the price you paid.its consistent and it never choped out of the 100 crapiest paintballs I could find. then it was a little loud at first but a new barrel fixed it all. Something other that I found when my friends and I got in our first tournament was that it was hard for me shooting really fast because the trigger is to apart from the fame so I would suggest a rocking e-trigger thats compatible with the gun. the grip will take a little geting use to in youre new to the sport but its a great gun for those who want to join in
One of the best begginer markers out there, great price, great style. Kingman did its homework

Jt tac-5 recon - terrible!
Tippmann 98 - worse
Tippmann a5 - better
2005 sonix - a bit worse
Pirahna GTI - almost the same
I've also used various electronic guns, but i wouldnt call that similar
ICD lasoya promaster
Trinity T-lock feedneck
Empire nano ASA
Black Halo B
45/4500 Pure Energy
NXE 08 tank cover
2 piece barrel
accuracy (with good barrel)
Doesnt chop much
Great gun for the price
Accuracy with stock barrel
This was my second gun, and my favourite mechanical gun other than the a5 which wouldnt be a fair comparison since it retails for like $275. It is an amazing gun for its price. I've shot a few electronic spyders as well, some of which i thought werent even as good as this. It's really light, hardly chops, and if you are using the right paint and a good barrel, it is extremely accurate. I usually can only afford shi tty paint, but one time we went when i was using Evil paintballs, with my 14" SP progressive barrel, and I wrecked my opponents, because it was so accurate. Check the bore of your barrel, and match it with paint the same bore for the best accuracy with the sonix or any other gun. If you can upgrade the barrel, upgrade to a 2 piece 12 or 14" barrel. Also the feedneck is a must to upgrade. Since it is made out of plastic, it is almost guranteed to break on you. The 3rd or 4th time playing I did a headfirst dive into the snake and my feedneck snapped and my hopper went flying. It's not very efficient, I used to only shoot 500 or less each time and my 12oz co2 tank would run out, when it said it would take around 600+ shots. If you want more consitent shots, or just hate co2, HPA makes this gun even better. Also if your chopping more than you think, try buying an electric loader, or an anti-chop bolt. My personal choice would be a new bolt, becuase not only would they reduce chopping, It would probably make your gun a lot more air efficient.
This is a great begginer/intermediate gun especially with some upgrades in it. If you are just starting paintball and dont want to spend much money it is still very good stock with co2 and a gravity hopper and I would highly recommend it.

I use a Kingman 2007 Spyder Sonix Paintball Gun and a halo loader.
Reliable, fast, and is light wait buy it.
This gun is great and reliable at all times. Its fun to use which for me is hard. The first time I used it it was magic. I'm going to buy it as soon as I get the money(which isn't far away). BUY IT! It's the best gun period in my book.
A very sturdy and reliable paintball marker. I've had it for about two years now and only until recently has it broke (problems with the air system, no biggie) it is a surprisingly cutomizable gun, you just have too look around. I think it's better than the tippmann i had, much easier to clean and take care of. much cheaper than the tippmann, even after the upgrades. If you know your paintball, are on a budget, and know your paintball (yes i know i said it twice), then get this gun and customize what you want. I guarantee that by the end of all the upgrades the gun will look like a high-end pro marker, and will shool like one : )
If on a budget and you want a high-quality gun....this is it
Fast W/ frame
Easy to maintain
Slow when stock
This review is based upon my friend's setup, not a stock setup.
Barrel: stock barrel is loud, inefficient, and short. J&j was a great barrel, quiet, efficient, accurate.
Frame: Stock frame has a trigger pull of like 2 inches or something, so 5 bps is about the best you can get. The upgrade frame was great. For 60 bucks, it was worth it. Rechargeable batts mean no more wasted money on 9 volts, new boards available, and more. I was ripping at 20 bps with this, with my friend's reloader b. comfy trigger, smooth, not too heavy of a pull.
Feedneck: Horrible. Plastic, breaks when it gets shot, high profile, piece of crap.
ASA: No on/off. Standard asa.
Grips: Personal preference. I don't like it,and it requires a special grip, not a standard 45 frame.
Bolt: Derlin, no o-rings. Works great, just remember to put some dow33 on i.t marker oil will also work, but not very well.
Other notes: I was surprised that one of spyder's lower end's had spring ball detents. Pretty much all low ends use rubber or plastic detents,but these will last.
Great marker for the price, good to start out with. There is nothing more to say.
barrel for sure, but the stock will work casually.
good on co2
Trigger pull (see below)
No sights ( no biggie )
OK, to begin, I only bought this guy for the price, I managed to pick it up refurb on action village for 40 dollars. good deal. I read up on all the guns in the 50 dollar price range and this gun took caught my attention.
The day I got the order I was immediately impressed with the build and looks of the gun. I'm sure you will be as well, it does not feel like the spyder victors we used to play around with. it is very sturdy. MAKE SURE you get an allen key and tighten up all the screws.... especially the ones down below the handle where you hook up the CO2 tank. very important.
i fired off around 500 rounds with the stock barrel and was impressed, didn't chop any, and in a couple rounds I played with friends in the woods it was very accurate at close range and fired quickly.
The annoyance I had, and several others apparently, is the trigger has about a cm pull before it fired. This meant far slower firing speeds. In order to fix this, take a piece of thread or fishing line and tie it around the trigger and the handle, and hold the trigger down so that it is only a mm or less from firing. having a friend help you will make it far easier. if you dont understand feel free to ask me, but it was EXTREMELY helpful for myself.
Overall im super happy with my little investment. I highly suggest buying, its a bargain and you will enjoy casual games....
tippmann people will never stop teasing you though.,
I only give it a 9 because this gun simply cannot be a 10. it is a 10 in value though, for sure!!!
maybe a 12 or 14 inch barrel but stock barrel is accurate
Accurate stock barrel
double finger trigger and its easy to clean
i have been using this gun for about a year now and alls i can say is that it gets the job done. This gun is excellent for begginers or for more experienced players. It has only chopped about 2 balls witch is pretty good. this gun i bought in the kit for 180$. But just the gun itself only costs119$
If your just a beginer or want cheap gun that can get the job done buy this marker
14in linear barrel
Extreme Rage Hopper(non-electric)
Lapco Claming Feedneck
Pure Energy Steel Tank Preset Reg 72 3000
4+2 Gen X Global Pod Pack
6 Extreme Rage Pods
Pure Energy Barrel Condom
E-trigger if you want to shoot faster. although already pretty good
Shoots over 300 fps when first purchased
Wow! This gun is the best starter gun I have seen on the market. It is very fashionable, is quite accurate, and will wipe out any other mechanical gun on the field. I have been using this gun at my local field now every week, and so far I have put 10,000-12,000
balls through it. The marker does not chop the paint and shoots straight. Like I always say to my friends, it flys like a butterfly and stings like a bee!
Overall, this is an amazing gun to start off with. The only downfall to it is the spring and the accuracy if you are picky, but this can easily be fixed for $40.It shoots great doesn't chop any paint
14 inch linear smart parts barrel
gravity fed hopper
12 oz co2 tank
kingman spyder 2007 e trigger frame
and possibly a new trigger
easy to clean
Rate Of Fire
I have been playing paintball for about a year, but I have been renting or using my friends guns, so this is my first gun. It is definitely a great beginner gun. It is durable, reliable, and very easy to clean "not that it matters because I played with a bag of one month old paint and didin't chop once." The only thing I would complain about is it's rate of fire. I know its mechanical, but I had expected it to shoot a little faster with the double trigger and everything. I also would recommend a new barrel, but this isn't an absolute must. But other than that it is a fantastic beginner gun.
Overall it is a great gun for the price. I would recommend it to anyone who is starting paintball. Although if you are buying a second gun, I would not reccomend this.
