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.

This is a very good gun! I was rollin with it for about a year and i was very pleased with it!
I loves it! i was a beginger wher i think any electronic gun is the best but not really! This gun was good engough for me! It works for any beginer and if you have a high end gun... if u ever just wanna fall back on the advancdness of your gun this would be a great gun to fall back on! also this is probably the best backl up gun ever because i still have mine even though i use an ION!!
VERY good gun and nothing is better based on the low end mechnical gunnzzzz!!!!
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

new barrel obviously, and the feed neck tends to come off a lot unless you really make sure you tighten it
fired upwards of 500 paintballs and haven't chopped one
Velocity seems stubbern when you try to adjust it
might just be me being dumb
As stated above, this was my first marker. I really love the matte red color, and it feels very sleak in your hands. My first time out in the forest, i was talking to someone and the gun got shot out of my hands and fell on an exposed tree root. Not one scratch and yeah, that's pretty sweet. It's a really very light gun, i was holding my friends Spyder Pilot and Tippman Triumph XL, and mine was likea feather compared to them. It really helped when i was moving around, it didn't slow me down.
This is an absolute beast of a gun, and i highly recommend it
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
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.
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
Cleaning issues (if you like getting dirty)
No drop forward
You can't go wrong with the 2007 model Spyder Classic line. It is THE BEST entry level marker out there for several reasons: 1. They are nigh indestructable 2. They are highly upgradable 3. They are THE MOST EASILY maintained marker available (the quick strip bolt allows you to clean the bolt and upper tube without having to worry about springs and other parts going AWOL from the lower tube assembly). In fact, you could probably get away with cleaning it in-game if you needed to. My only concern with the marker is the new design does allow the potential for dirt to enter the lower tube of the marker from the top of the gun (since it it partially exposed). This isn't necessarily bad though, since you can now oil the striker without taking it out of the marker. Also, if you do take apart the lower tube... lining the striker up is a bit of a hassle when you reassemble it.
If you are worried about dirt you obviously play woodsball... a bright red marker (like this one) is probably a poor choice (might I suggest an MR1 instead... it's black and come with a stock). But if you are getting into speedball or paintball in general... buy one of the 07 Spyder classics, they are comfortable, upgradable, and easily maintained.
a new barrel for better accuracy even though its not bad itself.
accurate for stock barrel
easy to clean and take apart
Nothing except like i said a barrel would make it more accurate obviously.
An excellent gun for the price. Never chops, good speed, and accurate for a stock barrel. A barrel would make it more accurate but if you are on a budget the stock barrel wont annoy you and make you wish u never bought this gun. The gun looks pretty sick in my opinion and has a nice color (titanium). Its easy to clean and take apart. Just about everything you could like if you want a budget gun and you are a beginner.
If you just started or dont want to buy a really expensive gun then this is the gun for you. It is just so good for the price. Buy this gun.

Tippmann 98 (Ok gun but the sonix has better accuracy)
12oz Co2 Tank (Brasss Eagle)
14" Linear Smart Parts
200 VL Hopper
Just like every gun, a new barrel
Well the stock isnt horrible but in the future, you should save for a new barrel, 14" maybe or 12" Smart Parts
- Easy cleaning and design
- Like new look
- Never chops or has problems
- Stock Barrel
- Bad when paint gets in the firing barrel
(Before shooting you need to chronograph your fps. Mines was averaging around 300 - 350! That means cutting the spring a little bit.)
To start out I am pretty much a beginner paintball player. Anyways I took my Sonix 2007 to play at Sgt splatters on Sunday and the gun played pretty well. If you wanna have a good time, check all the screws on your gun just in case. I had to miss out on a game because the bottom screw was missing which caused the grip to be a little loose from the bottom CO2 thing.
The gun played alright, it never chopped or had problems like getting paint stuck inside, nothing like that, I didn't have to use my squeegee. The gun shot well in my opinion but next time I need a new barrel... maybe $40 Smart Parts. You don't need an electronic hopper but it will help if your shooting a lot.
Now if I was to go back in time I wouldn't have purchased this gun because I would rather of invested for a Spyder Pilot since its electronic. Electronics are very nice on the field since you can fire rapidly unlike mechanics.
For a mechanical gun tho the Spyder Sonix and the Classic Series is the way to go!
If your a beginner paintball player who just started the sport of paintball and want to get into it. I would recommend you buy the Sonix 2007 Valve Package which comes with everything in it. You save a lot of money that way. Overall its a pretty good gun.
