I've been trying to get the cup seals for a week now. every store I've looked at either has them listed as backordered, or after I place the order I get an email saying "whoops, we're out of stock, so sorry." I refuse (for now) to order from Lapco directly, because they want $11+ shipping for 5 cup seals :headbrick: Seems almost like there's a national backorder on them right now.

Are they any good to begin with?

Supposedly, they are a softer material than stock, which can help seal a little better. I've got a tiny little leak around the valve pin that I'm hoping can be fixed with these cup seals.

You've tried changing the cup seal right? I had a scratch on the valve and I took high grit sandpaper(1000 grit) and just lightly sanded the valve face until the scratch was gone. I think I got lucky cause I probably could have screwed up the valve.

I've tried 3 different cup seals. I may have to try sanding the valve face like you did next.

That's actually quite a deal($2.20 each w/o shipping) since they normally sell for around $5 each. Crap, if shipping isn't that much, I may scoop some up myself for that price. How much was shipping? These cup seals are essentially the best you can buy for Spyder markers -

That was just the shipping. The price of the cup seals was $20 plus the $11 for shipping. Total of $31 for 5 cup seals! :eek:

Nice find Dragon.

An alternative could be ACP cup seals maybe?

Bandit bolts has the NDZ pin with delrin cup seal...http://www.banditpaintball.com/customer/product.php?productid=1114&cat=0&page=5
If you don't already have a high flow pin this is a pretty good deal. If memory serves me right shipping is around $2-3. Maybe something to consider.

IMHO, your trouble lyes in the valve body itself :p ..... but VERY easily repairable.

Take out the valve body, Find a piece of @ 1/4" thick glass (A table top is fine)
and a small piece of 800 or 1500 grit wet/dry sand paper.

(clean glass surface & clean NEW paper) set paper on glass and set valve on cup sealing surface against it, very lightly in a circular motion rub the seal surface of valve, idea is to lightly clean up and even out the lip that cup seal rests against.

then with some 1500 laying on your finger tip, press the valve sealing surface against your finger tip and spin it back & forth to polish the just squared up edge.

With a NEW cup seal, IT WILL NOT LEAK !! (replace o-rings too)

Well, what do you know, three swipes on some 1200 grit sandpaper on the valve face and I've got a perfect seal. The SpyGun is back in business!
