From Isaac Kennen
Summary: The Kingman Spyder Xtra paintball gun offers great beginner and intermediate-level power for cheap. The Xtra comes stock with a respectable barrel, a vertical feed, a mini-expansion chamber, a dual-finger trigger, and a bottom-line adapter. These are nice additions that make this gun well balanced and capable of belting out a lot of paint quickly. The Spyder Xtra is also easy to field strip and highly upgradeable. All in all, this paintball gun is a very good value.

Shooting: The Spyder Xtra paintball gun shoots well right out of the box. The double trigger is a nice addition, but the trigger pull is a little long; an upgrade would not hurt. The vertical positioning of the hopper allows for quick feeding, which really helps the marker not chop balls. The stock barrel is surprisingly good for both accuracy and distance.
However, the Spyder Xtra does not do so well as far as air pressure consistency goes. Upgrading to compressed air, or installing a regulator, would be a great idea. Some owners have also been unable to turn their velocity down below 270 feet per second. A spring kit can solve this problem.
Maintenance: The Spyder Xtra is pretty reliable. A few drops of oil after every use will keep this paintball gun running well for many years. Cleaning is very easy, and most owners can break the gun down and put it back together in around 7 minutes.
Upgrades: The Spyder Xtra performs well right out of the box, however all paintball guns can be made better. The first recommendation is to upgrade to compressed air. If compressed air is not an option for you then a good regulator should solve the pressure fluctuations that are sometimes a problem with this gun. Also look into an aftermarket barrel. The dual-finger trigger is a nice stock feature but better triggers exist. You may want to upgrade to an electronic trigger in the future
