During the time I was using this gun, still am, it had very little problems. I played many times and used some other guns like it. The shutter is a great gun for beginners, reasonably priced at some places. The gun is a durable lasting one with few problems. There is always the upgrade from stock barrel but that is just about it. I first used the gun with a stock barrel, and it was ok, but broke balls every-once in a while. The gun is powerful and not the best with cheap paint. The barrel, as always, stock is not best. People say that this gun is a waste, but it is not, it is worth all the money some places charge for it, in my opinion. It took me a while to choose between this gun and another, and i was not sure if i would be happy with my choice, but in the end it was the right one. This is a great gun is worth getting.
The spyder shutter is a great gun. It is good for beginners or intermediate players. The gun is lasting and fun to use. The gun is strong looks great. This gun is a wonderful one that will not fail you. There was only one problem I have had with this gun over the period of use.

A brass eagle tiger shark-it can't even be called a paintball gun
J&J ceramic barrel- quiet and extremly accurate
12 volt hopper w/ X-board - definelty need it
Sprint electronic trigger
12 oz co2
Get a new barrel- stock isn't very good
a 9 volt hopper, at least
-good for snap shooting
-chops no balls, w/ 12 v
-stock barrel stinks
-i didn't like the beavertail, so i took it off.
This is an amazing gun. With the upgrades i put on it, it's just as good as any angel. In fact i've played against people with angels and autocockers, and i've creamed them all.
i haven broken any balls in quite a long time, and it chopped a ball once when my hoppers' battery came loose. With the remote it's very light, and is excelent for snap shooting. I'm planning on using it in our next tourney. Even though the rest of my team looks down on my gun (they have a shocker and impulse) i've painted them all quite a bit. Dollar for dollar this gun is one of the best out there, and with some extra stuff it can do the same thing any angel can. It even looks slightly intimidating. anyway i highly recommend this gun.
With some mods it's one of the best guns out there, in it's price range. I give it a 12 but scince 10 is the highest, oh well.
Spyder Victor, Spyder Imagine, Spyder 2000, Spyder Sonix, Spyder Esprit, Spyder Aggressor, JT Excellerator 5.0, JT Excellerator 6.0, Spyder Flash, Spyder TL Plus, Black Dragun LCD
The Shutter's probably one of the best
Spyder Shutter with Upgraded 16 inch barrel, ADCO sight, Sprint ellectronic Trigger Frame, Upgraded Volumizer, Upgraded Expansion chamber
Barrel definetely. Electronic Trigger Frame. Sight if its a sniper. But deffinetely get a new barrel. And maybe a new expansion chamber. The Shutter is none to leak
Very powerful. Its easy to upgrade good 4 new b's
Its very loud.a couple new parts can help reduce that. It also leaks sometimes
Overall the spyder Shutter is one of the best guns that i know of. Just 1 or two upgrades can make a big influence on this gun. I think its much better than most of the more expensive guns. It is deffinetely a great gun. I greatly suggest buying this gun. It is worth it weather u r a new b or a pro.

Angel Speed, Check it Drop Forward, Twin CP Volumizers, Evil Pipe
Delrin bolt, drop forward, barrel system, grips, electro trigger frame
easy to maintain
made of cheap materials
trigger pull is like a foot
"power feed" power nothin!
This is definately a gun for someone who's new to the sport or a rec player. Its very affordable. Doesnt look too bad. Somewhat reliable. Easy to fix/take apart/upgrade. It has more options than other spyders. Lightweight. It is also kind of cheap. The materials used to make this gun are of poor quality. It's very slow. 6bps max unless you upgrade. You can spend alot of money and upgrade this gun but then again you might as well just buy a better gun.
If you're looking for a reliable and affordable marker, spyders are the way to go.

Tippmann pro/carbine (doesn't compare)
The following I have only test fired-
-spyder flash and aggressor
Spyder Shutter (blue)
JT one-piece barrel
12 volt Revvy w/x board
68/3000 aci hpa
-new barrel (I have a jt one piece. It's really accurate with Evil Paint :)
-Electronic trigger frame
-light, snappy trigger pull
-accurate with new barrel
-dirt can get into the chamber
-power feed (not as fast as vertical)
I got the spyder shutter as my first marker. It is an excellent marker, especial with a few upgrades. The stock trigger is light and feels good. The ROF is good for a non electronic marker. The stock barrel isn't that great, but the accuracy is really good w/ a new barrel and some good paint.
The marker has proved to be very reliable.
This is an excellant marker, And I would highly recommend it. However, If you plan on adding an electronic trigger frame, I would suggest the spyder Xtra. Its vertical feed reduces chopping. Or, you could just buy one of Kingman's electronic markers.
Spyder Shutter, Empire Barrel Kit, Maddman spring kit, Ricochet 2k
Everything i have.
Cheap, affective. Half descent out of the box.
stock barrel, bolt, regulator, guage....etc.
this is a very good beginner gun, but as you get more and more into the sport, you are going to want a higher quality gun,stock bolt scratches the inside of the body, therefore trying to get a better fit, but still scratches never the less. so buy this if you are a noob, otherwise, get a job and buy a real gun(Autococker, Impulse, Angel..etc.), you know you are gonna want them sooner or later anyways, so, yeah. get a life and stop reading these reviews and just buy a better gun and PAINTBALL!!!
what is the difference between review and conclusion?!?!?!?! good noobie gun, cheap, affective, you get what u pay for. i liked this product since it was my first gun, but i am not liking it more and more because it does not meet my demands of low pressure and accuracy along with consistency!
Brass Eagle Raptor, Tippmann Model 98, Spyder Compact (even though it's the same thing as the Shutter) and more stacked tube blow backs
Kapp Teardrop DF
RT Pro barrel
nothing is really needed for this gun, it shoots the same as every other stack tubed blow back out there
Kingmann makes all of their guns the same, they need a new design
It's a nice gun if you want it. I've shot a bone stock Shutter and a Shutter with a SP Teardrop and didn't notice any difference. So there's no need for a new barrel. So if you have a tight budget you would be able to get this gun and everything else you need for low cost.
If you're just starting or like the Spyder line of guns, go for it
tested a Custom 98 (its ok i guess)
black maxx (it suckes)
tippmann pro/lite (older model of the pro/carbine)
20oz. 12oz. CO2
new barrel thats all i can think of
has mine x chamber and reg
a little heavy with out a remote line
i love this gun it is the best gun ever i wish i would have gotten it earlier
great gun all in all absolutly nothing wrong with it
great for starting
intermedieate and expurt
and for just playing in the back yard it is not a cheap gun it will last longer and has more upgrades than ever now
get this not a tippmann please i beg you get it you will not be let down ever it is the best ever made
It is not plastic it is metal!

Spyder shutter with an ESP frame, Dye Boomstick, bob Long style xpansion chamber, Evil rear cocking bolt, flame drop forward PMI 20oz co2 tank with smart parts on/off valve
Definetly a new barrel and expansion chamber. and if you get a esp frame, you'll need an electronic hopper
it is fairly efficient with co2, good rear cocking bolt
b4 every game, you NEED to oil ALL the o-rings, no vert feed
If you dont, most of the o-rings in the gun will break, and you will be in trouble.
For a stock barrel, its shoot very poorly. I wasnt able to hit a 3ft by 3ft target from 30yds. Regulator can act up at times. the gun is not consistant. One day it will work like a charm, the next day it will chop paint, well it will suck.
This gun is a decent gun for a beginner player, but anyone who wants to play tourneys, i suggest finding a better, nore reliable gun

i used a samuri (brass eagle) but it doesn't even compare with any spyder.
I have a red spyder shutter with an esp electronic trigger frame and a custom carbon fiber barrel.
i recommend a new barrel because the stock barrel isn't really accurate, i also recommend a new psi gauge but only because they brake easy.
Doesn't chop balls, and has never broken on me.
mostly the barrel, and the trigger pull is a little two big.
The spyder shutter plays as good as any other gun in its class. It stands up well against competition and will never give you a hard time. It looks great and has class that beats most other guns. It is great for woods play and is easy to control in any speed ball or hyper-ball field. The cost is great and the gun is better. The quick release pin makes it easy to clean but, u will prolly not have to very often!
I recommend this gun to anyone, from a begginer to a long time player. It is well worth the price and looks like it should cost much more. It shoots accurate and is very light.
