16 oz CO2
CP 14" one-piece
Dye Stickies (Midnight Blue)
Barrel, maybe expansion chamber
This product is awesome. I have used it about 3 times at the field near me and it works great. Another great thing is the price! It's only 150 bucks! What else could you want for for $150? Vertical feed is also very nice. It means you don't need a revvy when you're first starting out.
Stock barrel is OK but you defiantely want to upgrade.
That's about it, this gun rocks!
Buy this gun if you're looking for a pirahna or spyder.
Any pretty good barrel like a CP barrel. They're good and cheap. If you're a fast shooter, try to get any revvy 9 or 12 volt.
The stock barrel is better than many many other stock barrels. Still maybe bad, but still kicks ass.Drop forward is a good if you don't like the co2 or nitro to be sticking out and not be able to put your shoulder on it. Pretty light triiger pull, not hard. Very very reliable, if looking for a gun, get a Spyder, they are very reliable. If you want a Rebel, don't get it, get a Spyder. If you think a Rebel is god, it isn't, very unreliable. Even look at the reviews, they always say that it leaks or something breaks. SO GET A SPYDER!
Might chop balls one in a long while, but haven't came across a prob;em yet.
Excellent Great Very Good Gun! kingman is the one of the most trusted paintball companys, so they can always help you out.
this gun is sweet, its almost identical to the shutter except it doesnt have a regulator......the first time i played with my steel blue xtra i used 300 pballs, got hit once and hit three people all from about 75 feet away, and we played for 5 hours! i recommend this gun to everyone!
there is something bad tho....the bolt sucks really bad..i recommend a bob long cyclone 3 bolt and my grip frame always comes loose but its no big deal i just tighten it again
this gun is accurate....it reaches velocities of 375 out of the box! light trigger pull...

I currently own a Spyder Xtra and have a 10 inch DYE Staianless Steel barrel on it. Don't waist money on a Boomstick because if you shoot both you won't be able to tell the difference.
I recomend a nitro tank as the first thing to do then followed by a better barrel like a Dye stainless steel. I would also put a steel hose on it because the stock one sucks and exploded during a game.
The good thing is is that it is a very reliable well priced marker and it has verticle feed so there is no need to buy a Revoulution hopper.
Crappy stock hose.
The greatest gun for the money I have ever shot. Much better than the crappy Spyder Shutter. DOn't waist money on a Spyder TL or TL plus either. Buy an Xtra if you wan't a Spyder.
Rarely Chops Balls: Took me few days for it to chop balls, but I used an unreliable hopper. So I used a better hopper and it's fixed. All my friends are impressed with my gun. So far it's the best Semi they've tried. They can't complain whenever I brag about this gun. The gun is sweet!!
Just the barrel, as every stock barrel out there.
This gun is perfect for it's price. It's a top notch in it's category. Even better than the top line Spyder Shutter. Spyder XTRA is the best buy in it's class.
I have tested a Tippmann 98 Custom and compared to the Spyder Xtra the Tippmann is way below this Spyder. Plus you get everthing with tie Spyder Xtra with everthing better with the low price.
I use a Spyder Xtra. I have the mini expansion chamber, (that came with it). The expansion chamber prevents liquid CO2 from getting to the o-ring. And when the Liquid CO2 gets to the expansion chamber it then turns to gas CO2,
I don't know what upgrades to get. I got the gun in the beginning of November.
This gun is good because the steel and it takes a lot to break this gun, I've seen someone break their's but it took a long time see when it would break. He was smashing it with a hammer. It took about 10 hours(I was asleep). The vertical feed, its pretty cool. The design is awesome! As I mentioned the expansion chamber is cool. I think Kingman has got a winner. I give them 5 stars out of 5.
There is nothing bad about the gun.
You people reading this review....WELL WHAT ARE YOU WATING FOR, GO BUY THE GUN!!!
VERY accurate with the stainless steel.
The XTRA is better then the TL plus and the Shutter I have played a with both and i went with the xtra because it is the better gun.
Not to many ball breaks.
Easy to maintain.
A lot of balls break in the stock barrel so right when I got this gun I bought a new barrel now not very many ball break.
Not very many problems I have shot about 2000 balls through mine and only 2 ball breaks in the gun and about 5 in the barrel but the number has gone down since I have bought the DYE barrel.
I like my Xtra great gun for the price.
I thnk it is the best semi-auto spyder out.
Not too many upgrades needed.
Looks great out in the field with the color.
Spyder Xtra, 14" thunderpig barrel, running off co2 and remote
new barrel, new x-chamber or get a remote, 12v revvy
-shoots marginal paint well
-almost never breaks balls(1 in a 1000)
-accurate, though i haven't tried the stock barrel
-easy to maintain, just a drop of oil on each o ring and a few in th asa
the vert feed sticks up high
stands out in the woods
the rear cocking could let a lot of dirt in, no problems yet though
the stock x chamber is useless
I love this gun. It is the best semi made by kingman. very reliable. best gun made for the money

Spyder Xtra, Dye stickies, lapco drop forward, 12vt revvy, aci 6 xtage expansion chamber, SP all american 14 inch, lapco alum. bigshot
new barrel, expansion chamber or regulator, revvy, shocktech spring kit
The ROF on this marker is pretty good, I was able to rip off long strings of shots pretty quickly. With a revvy I haven't broken a ball yet. Accuracy isn't bad, not as good as a cocker or even an impulse, but it could hold its own out there. Can't comment on the stock barrel, never used it. With the all american i was hitting shots I would have never attempted with any rental tippman with the stock barrel. Out of the box, my spring was shooting way under, at about 220. I had to get spring kit to correct it. The consistency with a real expansion chamber (not the crap they included) is fairly good, not like nitro, but its not bad. Maintenance is a cinch. Pull out bolt and hammer, oil it up, some oil in ASA, and everything is good to go.
My setup is kind of heavy by the end of the day, i'd suggest a four stage expansion chamber. Isn't much bad about this gun really. I'd suggest nitro to ease up on the velocity spikes. the drop forward is kinda junky on the gun. Get something sturdier. The bolt does scratch, but it doesn't seem to be affecting performance. Try to put some extra oil on the top of the bolt, that where it scratches, it has been minor after running about 6000 balls through it.
Decent enough all around, really good for a new or intermediate rec-baller. I'm happy with my purchase. The new ones with the stainless steel hose already installed is even better, than the older ones with the garbage hose. Highly recommended, a good start marker, and a handy backup (which is what it will soon become). The time spent with it was enjoyable.
