ACS works GREAT IF you break it in
If you chop a ball it gets EVERYWHERE inside the gun
Okay, to start, I have absolutely no idea why people are giving this gun terrible reviews. this gun isn't an out-of-the-box gun like people say it is, that's probably their problem. In order for the ACS to work right, you have to break it in. The fastest way to do this is to depress the spring and leave it depressed for 2 or 3 days to weaken it. Also, you have to tune the trigger to match your shooting style, if you have a real heavy finger, make it more of a pull, if you have a really light finger (like me) make it as sensitive as you need. I have slow fingers and am hitting 20 bps. If you think that the 30 bps is false advertising, then re-think your reasoning. Just because IT can do 30 bps doesn't mean YOU can 30 bps, so don't blame the gun, just practice.
Ignore the people saying that the rocking trigger is plastic, mine is metal, the ENTIRE thing except for the grips, the trigger, the frame, the screws, the pins, everything. I don't think I could break it if I tried.
The accuracy of this gun is ridiculous WITHOUT a new barrel, I was hitting a smaller tree with 90% of my shots from OVER a 100 feet away, and the recoil is barely even noticeable.
This gun is my baby, I run a small scale used paintball shop out of north west arkansas, and out of all the guns we've processed through here, the electra is probably the easiest to disassemble, clean, and repair. Not only is it extremely functional, but it's just fun to shoot, I can't even look at it without picking it up and playing with the trigger for awhile. I'll probably end up gutting it and replacing all of it's internals except for the ACS bolt.
Also, this gun IS and I repeat, IT IS tournament legal, because for every activation point hit, only one ball is fired.
I would recommend this gun to anybody who can take the time to get used to the trigger. Beginners, intermediate, and pro, although pros might want to upgrade the heck out of it.
Electra 05, Powerlyte 7 bore piece Scepter barrel kit with 14" or 12" long barrel tips, Viewlaoder Evlution 3 hopper, Crossfire 70/4500 carbon-fiber compressed air tank
Powerlyte 7 bore piece Scepter barrel kit. its literally the best barrel kit ever made, they invented the system of using bore sizes to match the exact ball size for perfect accuracy. if you have heard of the Empire version, Empire actually copied their design from Powerlyte but its only about half as accurate. this barrel kit is ridiculously accurate and quiet too.
Blowback gun, Tall feedneck, You have to cock the gun, grips
So i got this gun in 2006 brand new and it was my first paintball gun and i loved it because it was accurate, shot VERY fast, and because of the ACS it VERY rarely chopped balls (about 1 of every 10,000 or so). This gun is great for beginners. when i bought it in 2006 it was 300$. but now i think it sells for around 160$ or so, and for a gun of this quality to be THAT cheap... its an amazing deal. i am taking mine all apart soon to make my own custom gun, but this thing has done me well in the past. i never had a problem for about 3 years of owning it, but now it has electrical issues and i am having to do some electrical work to the board to get it to run right again. the ACS is a great system to have on lower/mid end guns. if you have never heard or seen it before, it can sense when the ball is improperly loaded and stops the shot instead of firing a ball that will chop. when it does this, however, you do have to re-cock the gun to continue.
This gun is a great starter gun and i would recommend it to anyone.
The looks are spectacular
Easy to maneuver
Did I mention fast?
Spyder did something right. With a few cheap upgrades this marker is one of the best, competing with the best for 10% the cost. Amazing marker, I wish mine still worked...going to buy a new one! It is extremely fast, light and it just looks spectacular. This is one of the best guns that spyder ever made and I do believe that if they can go back to the way they made this marker then Kingman would have a great rep.
I am readind lots of negative thing about this gun. You are all wrong. This gun delivers what it promised. On my Bob Long I can shoot about 13 BPS, whith this gun I'm in the high 20s. I had to upgrade my hopper just to keep up with the gun. Mine does not have the anti-chop eye and I can go through a hole day without chooping a ball. Accuracy is pretty good. But than , having having a good spread going down range you have a better chance of hitting something than trying to get a good aim and getting killed in the process. It works great on air and CO2. My No. 1 choice on any field. Maybe I don't have the rage or accuracy that the Angel or other expensive guns have, But then I dont play the back of the field.
I use the spyder electra and have a Kingman Fasta Loader, runs on Co2
fast loader, this gun shoots way too fast for just gravity fed or cheap loaders, I reccommend the fasta or empire diamond.
Runs on Co2, very accurate with high grade paint.
Keep clean or it doesnt perform as well, this gun wont shoot cheap paint accurately.
The Spyder Electra 05' ACS is a very sleek and reliable gun. It can perform with the best. This gun is great for amateur players, and is a great speedball gun.(check local rules on the rocking trigger). With a 30 ball per second capability, this gun will shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger. Any repair questions and i would be happy to help.

I recived this gun for my birthday this was the first electric gun i had ever oned or played with.when i went to play with this gun i was using nitro but had a 78ci steel tank so i switched to a 20oz co2 tank.I went to play with my friends and killed over and over again
i was so happy with my gun (i was playing woodsball players on a speed ball field). When i went to play with people i never played befor i was killed over and over again but i never had a problem with the gun.in the end i sold the gun so i could get a new one but still a great gun for rec players and the acasinal player, but not me.
I like the gun but its not the gun for me.I give it a 7.
viewloder traid(what I started out with) mr2 other spyders
spyder electra with halo b loader
maybe a new barrel
Fast, rocking trigger, acs bolt
Really cheap paint will not work well in this gun(i would recomand impact paintballs)
this is the gun that I am using and let me tell you it workes great.Some say that it chops more paint than it shoots.this is only true if you are using really cheap paint or have a hopper that cant keep up with it. some say the barrel that comes with it is bad but i have not had any problems with it.I have had this gun for 2 years and have not had any problems with it.

WOW here i am typing about my first gun. The only reson i am doing this is because the only way to get rid of anoying spyder NOOBS is to try and get them to get a half decent gun......
ROF- ok the gun is fast. speed does not matter as much a spyder describs it as. spyder ALLWAYS says "oh look at this gun it does 30 BPS" when they only do like 15-20. if only noobs could walk that fats without a illegal trigger. the reson why noobs buy their guns is because they think that spyders are the best cuz they can so "30BPS" (only about 15 tho)
Shots per tank- sucks. uses WAY to much gas.
rocking trigger- illegal in every tourney i have ever seen (EVEN BIG GAMES) made out of plastic. to sensitive. the other fireing mods on it are terrible. (nobody want Auto, 3, and 6 burst
barrel- chops paint EVERY OTHER SHOT so unacurate,
feedneck- suprisingly spyder didnt give me a peice of plastice to put on my gun. AHA HAHAH AH
Other- body is way to heavy
"ACS"- B.S it chopped half a case of paint the one day i used it before it broke
If you have this gun and like it you are: A Noob how thinks they are good
:sum 4 year old that saved their money for 9 years
if you start talking $hit to me cuz i made fun of ur $hitty gun then that just prooves that you are one of the spyder noobs at the feild that people with half desent gun make fun of and say $hit about them. and the funny thing is, the stupid spyder noobs think they are Fkn Ollie Lang

*do have*: 98 custom, vl revy, quantum (ugh worthless $%#@) one of my oldest guns i kept with, in the attic somewhere
*Just Ordered* (just got to my house this morning but im in school right now ARGH!!!) blue pmr 68ci 3000psi and a halo b with rip
For a spyder it dosent need much, new board would be great, and a good reg if your running air would be fantastic
Two piece barrel, fast, light, all the ups u need
Big body, its a spyder, rocking frame is not tourney legal and weird
Well i traded my ion for an electra and a 98c, (bad trade), but heck i was slowly getting out of paintball and saw a good need for a decent durable rec gun (98c) and a faster speed ball gun (electra) the electra was fast and i could hit the rocking trigger and good speed ( i can rock sensitive triggers) it had a feed neck which was great and a 2 piece barrel which was actually ok, i only played a few times with it since my trade, i couldent go to tournaments with my team b/c the rocking trigger was not allowed. that was dumb. but it was a fast gun and with a 12v revy and nitro tank it kept up, the acs bolt was a very good add on and i never chopped paint( thank god b/c i couldent take out the bolt b/c the screw for it was stripped. that also stunk) ive nver been a fan of spyders but this gun actually impressed me, finally kingman did a decent job making a gun, (it took em long enough) i finally sold my electra to my close friend for about 130 and slipped away from paintball for a long time, i am finally gettign back into paintball and just ordered a pmr, this gun isent bad, to be honest its the only spyder i ahve never seen a problem with which is a sign from god that the apocalpse is coming
Overall its a decent gun, dont buy if u plan on going to tourneys, rec ball is good though.
not really my gun but i remember what was on it. a halo hopper and a 3000psi nitrogen tank.
maybe a laser sight
30 Balls per second and double trigger
Kinda hard to control where bullets go
oOk this gun is definatly a good buy. I say a 10 of 10 for this gun. It is amazing. I suggest a laser sight for extra accuracy. Also get a halo hopper and a nitrogen tank. It works for a better gun and extra range.Overral, it is a really good gun to own. Stop reading this and go buy one now!!!!
