I'm fairly new to the sport, and this is just what I've heard around, but I've heard a lot of people saying that since Kingman switched its product line to industry-standard parts and measurements, the guns haven't been that bad. I've heard the Spyder Electra compared very favorably with the Azodin Blitz, and Smart Parts Vibe. Seems to be a pretty good low-level electric gun actually (for those of us who don't want to break $500.00 on a paintball gun).
Industry standard? Like still using metric threads when virtually no one else does?
You can get very good paintball markers for under $500 that aren't Spyders.
