ok, so i finally got my spyder up and running, and when i go to shoot (unsiphoned co2) my torp starts to freeze over from the co2 after a while and my psi jumps from about 250 up to 600 after a few shots. i havent been able to chrono it yet, so i havent messed with the springs yet. here's the setup:

torpedo reg
assault block
stock valve
modded valve pin
polished internals

if you have a spring kit, i'd try using that.

or using compressed air ;)

Anti-siphon kit!!! I cant recall mine freezing up since I installed it.

i figured that was the problem, but i wasnt too sure because ive been using o-rings as spacers for the reg so that the macro fitting faces the frame and not the barrel, and i thought that might be causing the freezing.

does unsiphoned co2 usually cause spikes like that?

I did that once on my old reg for a while. Nothing bad happened other than I didnt like it.

ok. i guess i'll have to start wearing gloves again when i play. where's a good place to find an anti-siphon kit? actionvillage only sells anti-siphoned tanks and they're $45.

Go talk to Dennis at Conders and see if they have any. Seems when the RT Tippmanns first started coming out he had anti-siphon installed on some of his tanks. There's not too much to installing it really.

Hardest part for me was getting the valve off. Im pretty sure you could pick up the parts at a good plumbing store.

check your local shop. mine supplies and installs for $10 or $15 and that included a fill.

Yeah, anti-siphon is the way to go, if not compressed air.

A few of my friends have them on the tanks they use for their tippmans and they say it was one of the best things they ever did.

If the reg is new, pressure spikes can be expected till its broken in.

Keep in mind that you won't hurt the reg at all with CO2, its just cold...
