I just recently got into paintballing.. I have the stock Spyder Pilot ACS red/black .. bought it from basspro.. Really want to get into this sport and upgrade the gun... What should i upgrade first .. i have no clue where to start.. any suggestions?

Probably your best bet for a first upgrade wold either be an electronic hopper, or a new barrel, I'd say get the new barrel first, because the ACS will keep you from breaking due to load speed.

For a barrel, your best bet for a cheap but good barrel would be the new smart parts progressive. It's around 40$ and looks to be really good. The real key to upgrades is how much cash you've got...

Check out www.ottersccustoms.com Otter has information on everything spyder, how to disassemble a diagram of how a spyder works, and tons more, the definative rescource for spyders :)

Yep, I'm a noob too and I have the same marker - red/black fade, and I put on a J & J ceramic S2 barrel with an Empire Re-loader electric hopper and it's like a different gun. Check out the S2, it looks like a two piece.

eh .. if you do get a progressive .. it shouldn't be that expensive .. i suggest buying it used ... and ... rather a teardrop ... but if you do want a progressive i know durrell sells them NIB for only 20 bucks
