Default Spyrers trump astartes?

Am I correct in my assumption that spyrers with hunting rigs are better armed and armored than space marines?

I would say no, they have an obvious edge in sophistication but lacking the superhuman body and most importantly the psycological conditioning of an astartes I reckon they would lose out, particularly if they cannot keep them at arms lenght. Fighting gang bangers is one thing, fighting 500kg of ceramite plasteel gene hanced sexually frustrated psychotic murder machine is quite another

I'd also find it hard to believe that even the well-heeled of the Hive spires could obtain armor of more significant value/sophistication/effectiveness than that worn by an Astartes, hand made or no. Even the weapons... would a storm bolter utilized by a regular human seriously be of equivalent caliber to that used by, say, a Grey Knight?

I know the answer to that one;
Royal Marine barely notices crunchy noise of 3cm tall plastic toy squahed under foot on way to the Gym.
