well, motivated by a thread on PBN (click me! (http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=2456759)), i've brainstormed an idea for a spyder pistol. i dont have the resources to to make one myself at the moment, but its something i'd like to see done and thought i'd share it if anyones interested.

first, parts:
halfbacked or slide-cocking spyder body
freak kit w/ 1" tip
acs bolt
lighter striker
modded valve/pin
single trigger eframe
victor front piece w/ macroline
ASA (see below)
13/3k or 3.5oz tank
50 rd hopper

body - half-backing would loose some weight, or a slide on top to cock it (like a real pistol) would be pretty cool. i think it would be pretty easy to take a top-cocking acs bolt, drill a hole in whatever youre going to use as a slide, and jbweld the cocking pin to it, cutting off the excess pin.

freak kit - functional, yet short with the custom 1" tip that druid has.

acs bolt - no chopping

striker - reduces weight, increased airflow

valve/pin - reduces weight, increases airflow

eframe - single trigger like a real pistol, yet capable of a decent rof compared to a mech frame

hollowed out victor front piece - no need for extra weight, and its a pistol, so it doesnt need a reg/x-cham. the macro also cuts down on unnecessary weight.

ASA - i'm not sure a drop would make it too heavy, or balance it out more, so thats why i didnt put down anything for ASA

lmk what you guys think. i may make one in the somewhat distant future.

Unless you have all those parts me thinks starting with an old spring fed pistol would be best (more compact or starters).

well, the whole point of it is that its still going to be a spyder, not a pistol that you can buy from the store.

You mean something like this? (http://www.sundragonpps.com/paintball_comp_spyd_pistol.html)- ;)

except lighter and more balanced, and a little more mil-sim looking.

I think you should make one, I think it would be neat if done right
