i was field stripping my gun in my room and forgot to take note that when i pull out the bolt/striker the buffer will come out with it.:mad:
what will happen if i dont have the buffer? will the gun work? where can i get one delivered to my house in a week for the upcoming paintball party im attneding?

Your best bet is at a paintball shop that will have spyder accessories if you have a shop near you. Many places dont just sell the buffer, it will most likely come in a kit.

or maybe look more in your room?

my room is a disaster area i looked for a good half hour and i have yellow carpet in my room so if its was findable i would have found it. and i live in middle of nowhereville usa the closest thing to a paintball store around here is dunhams and thats 15 minutes away

You can sub a piece of 3/8 id fuel line cut to 3/8" lenght....

thats somethin i tried but it was too tight of a fit on the spring

Try cutting the id with a drill or xacto....

also, if you don't have the buffer, you run the risk of chopping like mad. and possibly damaging the velocity adjuster. i had mine out for a while and my gun would chop like crazy since it would allow multiple rounds to feed.

solved the problem with fuel line uped the id with a pair of scissors. but one last quick question whats the dif between a striker oring and the oring the rest of the gun uses? ive always wondered as the manual says u cant sub it with a tank oring like u can with the rest of them

I don't think there really is a difference...

actully i pulled it off today to look at it and the stiker oring is VERY stretchy compared to the rest i think this makes it seal better

oh well when i start having problems with the stock one ill probably put a tank oring on it anyways thats what so great about spyders they are very simple to operate and maintain and take easy to find parts
