Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
The Spyder RS will run on Co2 similar to other entry level markers, but more efficiently with the Rapid Charge Inline Regulator. Operational at 300 PSI the RS runs at a fairly low working pressure reducing premature paintball breaks from air impacting the surface of a paintball. "SE Technology" or Synergy Engineered Technology products can utilize either Co2 or Compressed Air as a propellant. Manipulation of the air pressure through the Fast Charge Inline Regulator provides the RS with a steady air flow for consistent shot to shot velocity even at extremely high rates of fire.


Features:

CO2 compatible hybrid using SE technology (low pressure and dual air source)
Quick release delrin bolt
Anti chop eyes
Regulator and gauge
Vented pressure relief on/off CA adapter
Steel braided bottom line
Upgrades available
3 way adjustable Infiniti trigger
Operational at 300psi
9.6v rechargeable battery and charger
Twist lock feedneck


Standard Features
+ Break Beam Eye (Anti-Chop System)
+ Fast Charge Inline Regulator with Rubber Grip
+ Vented Pressure Relief On/Off CA Adapter
+ Steel Braided Hose Line
+ Quick Release Delrin Bolt
+ 12" Two Piece Micro Ported Barrel
+ Twist Lock Clamping Feedneck
+ 3 Way Adjustable Infinity Trigger
+ External Velocity Adjuster
+ Wrap Around Grip
+ Push Button Access Membrane

Product Availability 
The Kingman Spyder RS is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Review: I took this gun out today for the first time. I had a very good experience with it, I shot about 500 balls during my short time in the woods without a single break. The trigger worked well and makes it very easy to rip off a good barrage of paintballs quickly. It is small compared to my Tippmann which makes it easier to stay tight behind small trees and things while still being able to lean out and get some shots off. Everything seemed to work flawlessly on the gun. The only real complaint i have is with the feedneck. It is a twist to tighten style and it seemed difficult to tighten enough to make me feel like the hopper was really on there. I would recommend getting a feedneck similar to the one on the 98 custom which is able to be tightened with an Allen wrench. I like that it is top cocking as opposed to my rodeo which is rear cocking. This makes it more compact and you don't have to worry about the bolt coming back and scratching your lens while you shoot. When i got home stripping the gun down for regular maintenance was easy. Just pull up on the cocking knob and undo one screw and almost everything inside slides right out to be wiped down and oiled. I love the looks of this gun and the matte black finish is great for woodsballers.
Conclusion: I would recommend this gun to anyone not trying to spend a fortune on equipment but still wants a gun that can send some serious paint down range,it is easy to maintain and reliable. Low pressure operation helps to prevent ball breaks. Eyes prevent chopping. Obviously you will need an electronic hopper to keep up with the speed and i would recommend an after market barrel as well. The stock barrel is not bad but i feel like my All American adds a little more accuracy and consistency to the gun overall.

Review: I was looking for a tournament level speedball gun that would run efficiently and properly off of co2 with out a/s tanks and this gun does just that! This gun is awesome. its extremely fast (20+ bps). If you dial in the regulator and velocity the performance is almost identitcle on co2 as is on hpa. Hard to believe isn't it. The electronics of the gun are very easy to run and understand. With a little adjusting the stock trigger is very easy to walk but there is a lot of side-to-side slop. This is unnoticed when playing. The stock barrel is very good for stock but would be a good upgrade. The feedneck works great but feels a little cheap and is a little tall for speedball. The eyes work flawlesly! Have't chopped a ball yet. You deffinately need a fast hopper. An Empire reloader B or Halo B or even an Evo3 should be fine. With my empire i turned the eyes off and walked the trigger as fast as i could and still never chopped a ball. This is by far the best performing gun with co2. Its considered a low-end electronic marker because its a blow-back gun but performs just as good as a high-end that would cost much more. The thing that sold me was the performance on either co2 or hpa because it is a 50 mile drive to the closest hpa filling station. I am on a speedball team and with a few upgrades this will be my #1 gun I plan on competeing many times this summer with it and will give you updates on how it performs.
Conclusion: I would reccomend thi gun for everyone from a beginner to a pro tournament player. This was a great step up for kingman and with more guns like this should soon be on top of the mid priced guns. The gun is extremely fast, accurate, efficient, lite, and has everything needed in a speedball gun for half the price at least. I give it a TEN, a TEN a Fing TEN!!! look back for updates and how Middleton Mayhem did.

Review: I think this is one of Kingmans best markers to date. Ive shot over 2 cases of paint through my RS and havent had a break yet. Yea thats mostly cas of the eyes Im sure, but I do play with the eyes off sometimes just to see if I could chop one, and havent yet. The accuracy is also great, Ive had more one shot kills with this gun than any Ive owned. Even with walmart paint, I was suprised at this, the RS has been pretty accurate, with the exception of 1 or 2 a few feet left or right, but I chalk that up to egg-shaped paint. Also, I get more shots per fill from my Co2 tanks.
Conclusion: If you're looking for a great electronic marker for weekend woodsball or you want to turn a mid-range marker into a speedball machine with a few upgrades, this would be a great marker.

Products Used:
Spyder Sonix, 32 Degrees BTB Rebel
Marker Setup: Spyder RS (stock), w/ eVLution 3 loader, smart parts 20 oz. CO2 w/ on-off valve
Recommended
Upgrades:
Maybe Longer barrel, Maybe run compressed air?
Strengths: Looks awesome, Doesn't break balls, relatively easy to clean, all around great gun!
Weaknesses: None, however leaked out of the box, tightened up fittings now works fine!
Review: Played in a small woodsball league, first time playing in years. Also first time even hooking air up to the gun. Like I said leaked out of the box but some tightening up of fittings made the difference. Shot at 220-240 FPS out of box, increased velocity to around 260 and the thing shot straight as an arrow for about 35 yards (practicing off a little hill). Did not break one ball.
Conclusion: Played for about 4-5 hours, no broken balls, easy to handle and maintain. I have a eggy 3 on it and it worked like a charm. Definately get an electronic loader if you plan on popping off continuous fire. Awesome gun!!!

Review: The Kingman Group Techs are working over time. They came out swinging with their MR series. Next they hit a homerun with their V.S. 1. And now here is the grand slam the RS Series. The NEW Valve Spyder has designed which operates at a low pressure helps to reduce paintball breaks which can occur from air slamming into the paintball. By Tweeking the air pressure through the Inline Regulator it provides the RS, with a steady air flow for consistent shot to shot velocity even at extremely high rates of fire with CO2. The RS runs at 300 PSI Operational Pressure with CO2 or Compressed Air. This is why I got the RS.

Review
Marker shoots Great with little to no recoil. Eyes work Great. Feed-neck holds hopper securely. Barrel is accurate, tight patterns or shot groupings all within 14’’ of center mass at aprox. 35 yards. The Delrin quick release bolt is Great, by removing the venturing THEY have created a more efficient air flow resulting in a flatter trajectory. The Firing mode membrane is easy to use. The regulator works great also. I got out my chronograph to test this out. Normally with CO2 you get spikes in Velocity at High Rates of Fire, but it appears that Kingman has eliminated this problem .Because I did not experience any thing that would be classified as a spike . I am very pleased with this marker it is a Keeper. Also little to no need for upgrades.

UPDATES will Follow as i get time to use it more .
3/24 /08 the barrel is very accurate with medium to large paint balls I try to use some smaller bore paint not as accurate but what do you expect for a stock barrel.
Still performing very well no major issues yet.
I do like using my Apex barrel system with this marker it rocks. Tippmenns beware at 20 balls per second and more distance than the flatline barrel, woodsball has taking a dramatic shift.
Conclusion: The competition better beware Spyder is BRINGING IT AND BRINGING IT HARD !!!!
