View Full Version : Upgrades for the Spyder shutter

05-07-2007, 01:20 PM
Just wondering what sort of upgrades I can get for my shutter. I have already got a ACS Bolt, Rocking Trigger. I am looking for a new barrel but I dont know what would fit or would be the best. I was looking at the J&J Ceramic, but I dont know...I dont want to spend to much money, so let me know what you think. If it helps I play more woodsball, than speedball, but I do like speedball. Thanks.....Also I was wondering if you can run Air with the shutter and not CO2

Yes, you can run HPA with it, and it is recomended to be run on any gun. HPA is one of the best upgrades a person can get.....its more consistant, and if you decide to get a new gun, you can use it on the other gun too!

The J&J Ceramic is a good barrel, and alot of people on here suggest it. Some other barrels that are good are Teardrops. Alot of people seem to have them on their spyders.
If you look in the BST section, you will probably see barrels for sale every now and then. They will be used, but cheaper, and as long as u buy from a good seller, your fine!

Just make sure to get spyder threads!

awesome thanks...but how do I know what would fit a spyder???? Thats the problem I am having right now...Want to get a new barrel but dont know if it will fit

Spyder Threads means that it will fit a spyder,
so dont get a cocker threaded one, or any others because they are ment for other guns

ok so when I am looking at a barrel lets say on ebay...if it doesnt say hows it threaded....like who makes barrels that fit spyders and what model of barrel

almost all companies will make all kind of threads.....
so they appeal to a larger market

dont buy from Ebay, unless it is very detailed, and has lots of pics. You dont always know whats getting..

alright sounds good. I am going to do some research and look into a new barrel. Also the HPA tank...any other mods or anything for the shutter?

Valve, regulator, VA, ASA, macroline, drill/tap for eyes...it is all up to you on how much you want to put into it.

is it possible for you to give me some manufactors, name brands, models of those things? I wouldnt mind getting eyes....and how to threads???

Here is what I had done to mine. I think this will cover your question...
