I bout this gun a couple weeks ago and I have loved it. I play every weekend with my friends and this gun has given me the best accuracy. Its very lightweight and maneuverable. The feedneck can be a little laggy at points but its very easy and cheap to replace. I bought this gun at zephrypaintball.com and received it very cheap. It came in a package. Overall this gun is absolutely amazing for beginners thru intermediate players.
spyder pilot with eyes, CP 14 inch barrel, and a HPA 3000psi
Get a barrel, the stock one is a little short.
Really easy to maintain
A little small for me .
Thanks to the eyes I still have never had a chop and don't really need to bring a squeegie to the field. I have a halo hopper so it can keep up with anything my gun puts out. Maintainence is a breeze just pull out the bolt then clean everything out and then a few drips of oil and slip the bolt back in that easy. It's very consistent as well with air and each shot follows right behind the other. I've seen this gun with a mask, cheap hopper, co2 tank and some squeegies and such for 160. I bought it from extreme though for around 381 with a nice mask and hopper.
I think any beginner who wants to stay under 200 for a gun should get this. I have had no problems what so ever and am very happy with my choice.
I got this gun in Katy (near Houston) at Pro Edge Paintball for my birthday. I got it for $160-170, probably because it was from a pro shop.
EYES- I shot this gun around 15-20 times in my backyard, on different days in different weather conditions, and have had NO CHOPS OR BREAKS whatsoever ever since I got it. I usually use Impact, XBall, or Recon Camo paintballs, made by ProCaps, one of the best paintball makers in the world. Maybe that's why, or maybe it's my $13 32* Terminator barrel, or the eyes, I don't know. But I am purely amazed that I have had no chops or breaks since I got the gun. Ever.
FASTNESS- This gun is very fast. I think Kingman advertises 20-25 BPS, but i'm not really sure. I think I got it up to 13-15 BPS, since this is my first electronic marker and I'm still getting used to walking triggers. I've seen videos where people got it up to 20 BPS or so.
COMPACT- This gun isn't exatly "small" as in tallness, I think it's about the same as other markers in that category. But it is very compact, as in everything is close together, overall reducing length. The gas-thru-foregrip is almost touching the trigger guard, allowing me to play very tight.
BOARD- This gun comes stock with a Tadao board, which is a very good board to upgrade to, and the fact Kingman just threw it in as stock is just awesome. The board has three settings- Semi, Ramp PSP, and Ramp Millenium. Throw on a Viewloader Force or another good, cheap electronic loader and you're golden.
2-BUTTON MODE SETTING- Setting the modes are very easy. You don't even have to read the manual. It might take you 5 minutes to figure it out. All you do is press the power button to turn it on, press & hold the big M to get the SEMI mode blinking, press it again to get the mode you want, hold the M button to set that mode, and press it again to turn the safety off. To turn the eyes on/off, just press the power button. It's alot easier than it sounds.
The Spyder Pilot 09 came with a barrel sock in the box. I don't know if all manufacturers throw those in, but it was just nice.
FEEDNECK- The feedneck comes loose after shooting it a little. I don't know if it's because I'm shooting Co2, my velocity is too high, or my Viewloader Force is adding too much weight to one side. I would definately upgrade the feedneck, which doesn't cost much at all.
I would also like to add that the people at Pro Edge Paintball in Katy were very nice and helpful. I was asking alot of dumb questions, like what does ramping mean, and they told me with a straight face and not the slightest sound of smart ass in their voice. They even said that I should wait and save up for the Invert Mini. But I denied, as I've been wanting this gun since Christmas. Their prices aren't bad at all, either.
*EDIT* After a day of play, I've experienced only 1 or 2 barrel breaks, most likely to do with field grade paint.
I would definately get this gun for a begginer or intermdiate player. It's very fast, compact, and very easy to learn how to use. It comes with a Tadao board stock, which is very nice. Just upgrade the feedneck as a start and you're golden.

Up to 25 bps
The stock barrel is very loud
Barrel needs to be oiled and broken in
This was my first paintball gun. Several of my friends recommended I buy this gun because it is great for beginners. It is a very fast gun but it is easy to get ahead of it without an electric loader. The very few problems it has are mostly stock and new issues. The 11in stock barrel it comes with is VERY loud and has holes in the end that can get paint in and are difficult to clean. The other is that you have to get some ware and use on the gun before it works at maximum performance.
Overall a GREAT gun for beginners to intermediate players.
09 spyder pilot w/ eyes
Stryker 24oz co2(closest HPA fill is 45 miles)
backup- spyder voctor 07
12 0z pure energy c02(hpa refill is 45 miles )
vl force loader
2009 spyder feed neck,asa,and barrel
HPA ( if you have a fill station)
puff of gas if you use C02
Overall it is a great gun for intermediate to beginer players. its fast, cheap, and quick plus it uses all types of gas. Great on fragile paint but with c02 there is a cloud of gas(untill you've used it for awhile). I have to give it a 9 because the cloud is really annoying until the gun is "broken in".
Buy it but get a good loader........Vl force works fine.......great gun and shoots fast.

Quiet, eyes, battery, electric, fast, price, good for beginners, looks, durable
range, accuracy is O.K, but not great, trigger(opinion)
The spyder pilot is a pretty good gun for beginners, its not the type of gun you would bring to a tournament. I think anyone under a year of expierence would be perfect with this gun. If you are like a pro, this gun is no good for you. Personally, i think that the trigger is the worst feature of the gun. its just a peice of scrap metal put onto a gun. My friend bought this gun a little while back, and he just hated, so he decided to sell it to me for a very low price, so i took it, and i have only used it once in a match, and all i could say was WOW, this gun isnt not that good, but its excptional for begginers. And I have never used it in another match since. I only use it for target practice, ever since I got the g3
