The Kingman Spyder Imagine '04 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I love this gun the tippmans everyone talks about do not compare to what this gun does it is awesome it looks better performs better and is a awesome price the gun is very light weight and the fact that it is electronic makes it a good cheap begginer or pro playing gun
Buy this for the price and quality dont be swayed by everyone talking about the tippmans
Spyder. Price. looks.Speed.reliability.accurate right out of the box.
I havnt found any yet. Read Review.
I just got this gun . and I love it. it worked great. It was incredibly fast. It was accurate right out of the box. The new looks on this gun are amazing and it only cost me $124.00 new. Its not exactly an angel but one of the guys that I play with was telling me about his friend who had an angel and has alrdy had to send it back twice becuase of his LCD board. Oh did I mention it shoots 14 bps. The fastest of the Imagine line? and thats just if you have it on full auto. I think Im walking it faster than that.
I recommend this product to everyone. its a great gun. Looks Great Shoots great its reliable. and any one who knows any thing about spyders knows it will be.

bolt(scratches), Barrel (not too good), Grips (not that good)
The first time I got the gun I wasn't too impressed by the barrel, but I figured every gun no matter what needs a new barrel so I kind of figured oh well. Then I went to clean it and found out that the bolt scratches but whos doesnt? After I got those two things fixed I was beyoned impressed by the strength of this gun. To show te real power of it I had to invest about $400 into it, not quite sure it was worth it because the gun was $130 plus $400 equals $530 ON A F****** SPYDER! I love it to death though and thats all that counts. and every gun (sort of ) I compete against isn't as good as this one (well it has over $400 put into it) The performance that my gun has now is just BARELY, SLIGHTLY SMALLER than my brother-in-laws' Black Magic Autococker. (oh well) It really doesn't matter what equipment you use, it just matters about your skill and how you use it. But to have skill it requires getting used to the same equipment you use in paintball, that is why I put so much dam* money into this Spyder because that's all I have been using for experience ever since I started playing Paintball (otherwise I would have bought an Autococker DUHHHH!!!!!!!)
I recommend this product to anyone because it is very cheap and by the time you get the upgrades you need to have the best paintball gun it will probably come to a total ammount of just any regular gun that isn't upgraded (yea right, only if you spend $500 INTO IT!!!!!!) This is the best paintball gun I have used in my whole life (JOKING AGAIN!!!!!)

2k4 Spyder Imagine
Halo tsa led hopper
20oz. Catalina Co2 tank
14 in. Dye ultralite
New trigger (if you don't like wobble)
Easy to strip
Bolt scratches the gun a little
Grips are crap
I've been paint-balling for about six months, mostly renting or borrowing friends guns. About a month ago I decide to start looking to buy my own gun, since I liked the old model and most of the reviews were positive, I decide on the Kingman Spyder Imagine 2k4.
Fast -14 bps...just make sure you have an E-hopper or you'll chop like crazy
Fairly light -almost forgot I was holding it when I was on the field
Inexpensive $256 with a tsa hopper, 20oz co2 tank, v-force armor(or shield I can't remember), java 4+1 harness and 4 32 degrees 140 rd pods
Easy to strip-remove a cotter pin, then remove the bigger pin and thats it
Stock barrel -not a big problem
Bolt scratches the gun a little- if you keep it oiled, this shouldn't be that big of deal
Trigger annoying, but again not a biggie
Grips are crap-only real complaint...get some dye stickies
My conclusion? If you want a cheap,but relaible electric marker this is for you.

2004 spyder imagine, 14 inch J&J ceramics barrel, 20 oz. anti siphoned CO2, VL Quantum hopper
Speed, strength, easily upgradable, light, easily field strippable
When I was looking for my first marker, I was looking for something that wasn't to expensive, was easy to use, and was fairly light and fast. After reading reviews for a few guns I finally settled on this one, and I'm happy I did. Right out the box the gun worked pretty well, and was fairly accurate with the stock barrel. I got a J&J ceramics barrel for it and was impressed at how much more accurate it was. I can't complain about the speed, it shoots pretty fast, and doesn't chop as long as you have a quick enough hopper. I also like the fact that the gun has settings for full auto and 3 round burst.
This is a good all around gun, It's good for recball, and quick and light enough for speedball. I highly recommend at least testing it, you'll be amazed at how good it is for the price.
I tested out a rebel extreme with a revy and the imagine worked way better.
I have a revy, 3000 psi pure energy tank, Tear Drop Barrel.
I recomend getting the above and get a T-Board from www.scenariodreams.com and get a new bolt
Very cheap, you can fix the trigger pull by unscrewing the screw in the grip
The trigger is unstable, need a new barrel, and a new bolt.
This gun is good for someone who is not going to be pro and just wants to play with there friends or do little tournaments. I would just play at local places with this gun not to competitive unless you really supe it up like I did. The gun will never be able to play in a real tournament and compete with great guns like the dm4 or the angel but it is good for the money.
If you want this gun to be an amateur gun you will need the T-Board and there is a new trigger coming out that makes it so you can walk a spyder with ease you will have to make this gun the best it can get for it to be able to play good tourny with
32 Degrees Drop and Cradle Kit
14" Smart parts progressive Barrel
Dye Sticky Grips
50 gram switch
delrin ACS kingman bolt
New Barrel(Stock Sux)
new bolt- delrin
Very lightweight, affordable, great looks, very fast and dependable, very accurate w/a new barrel
No drop forward, stock barrel, aluminum stock bolt(scratches inside of gun)
I bought this gun about a week ago and was very surprised. my friend uses a spyder imagine(old model). there really is no difference between the two guns except for the custom milling on the newer model. the newer model is a little faster than the old one by 1bps, is a little lighter than the older model, and looks much better. you would never have guessesd that this gun was a spyder when you first see it! its very cheap (around 125 dollars) and is definetely a high quality marker. at first, i didnt want an electro because it sounded like a bad idea, but kingman definetely out done themselves this time. buy this gun becauese it is the best money can buy at such a great price. this gun for a little more cash can be upgraded to stand up to $1000 dollar guns, trust me i've played against them before. i got a new 50 g switch for it and it can now shoot faster than my friends ion. i got my microswitch for about 5 bucks and now this gun just PISSES paintballs!!! just remember to get a fast loader to keep up!!! also, get a delrin bolt or it will scrape away the inside of your gun!!!
for under $100 more, you can change this marker from an entry level to a tourny level marker in no time. you can get the performance of $1000 dollar guns but without the $1000 dollars!!! A GREAT BUY!!!

2k4 steel blue Imagine
-14" J&J ceramic
Soon to come:
-CIP 15* Assualt block
-CP flame drop
A little bit of bolt scratch which is regular for most guns
I just got this gun a few weeks ago. Ever since I took it out of its box, I have been very impressed with this gun. The gun itself looks amazing and it shoots just as good as it looks. The only downside to this gun is the stock barrel, which is a piece of junk. Like all other guns, the first thing that you want to get for this gun is a new barrel. My J&J worked excellent with this gun and it helped quiet it. Overall an amazing spyder which i would recommend to anyone.
Overall this is an amazing gun. Great for newbs or Spyder lovers. With some time and money this gun has the potential to be one of the best guns on the field. I would recommend this gun to anyone.
Grip is very flimsy at times
Barrel just plain sucks
OK, i was playing the other day and my dragun crapped out on me and i bought this gun the same day. Everything about this gun is great...there were times when i was shooting so fast i didn't even realise it. I wasn't even walking it. Very fast gun for the price. Very Upgradeable, and great fun.
The only other gun I've had was the VL Orion, works okay but I wouldn't recommend it.
I used a brand new 04 spider imagine. And a plain barrel that came from a VL orion(works fine though)
New barrel. The one that comes with it is a piece of junk.
Three modes are awesome with the light indicater.
Truly I cant find any. This gun is consistent and the body is sweet.
This gun is a piece of art. The internals are easy to maintain. I would reccommend to get a differnet barrel, the one that comes with it is not the type you would want. The velocity adjuster has a safety so you won't keep having to change it in the middle of a game. The trigger is easy to fire and you can definitely tell what mode you are in by the light indicators. I would truly reccommend the gun.
It's truly just a great gun. If you are looking for a nice shaped gun that shoots nice, here is the one
