I'm going to say Dex's spyder was the best. There was no T1 Kit on it and it still rocked and looked amazing. Props to the Barron for now owning that body.

The T1 kit turned ordinary blowback guns into spring assisted Electro Pneus....

Air was directed through an LPR and solenoid which moved a ram forward. A spring pushed the ram back into position to be fired again. Interesting idea (it was actually put on the Dragun T1's - hence the name, the one kit...) and it worked too!

1) Buy in bulk and save
2) If it has wheels or tits, its going to cost you money
3) Cutting in line gets you nowhere, except to the front of the line

haha, i luv it.

the T1 kit isa kit that makes the gun operation similar to a timmy, electro-pneumatic. all let everbody else explain it better, cause well i cant.

I always thought that Polecats green shutter looked pretty sweet, I'll try to find a picture... but that was a long time ago.

Dex's EVO. Hands down the best looking Spyder EVAR.

Best performing Spyder goes to Carbine's Hornet.

JB.

It was mine. I built it and used it a bit, very well balanced gun, the old pics I have don't give the anodizing justice. Its since been sold, otherwise I'd get quality pics of it.

I sold the Esprit as well, the anodizing on it was fantastic - again, the pics didn't give it any justice.

I've always liked that gun as well, very clean and classy looking. Just enough show, without being too gawdy. I also liked his purple Spyder from back in the day.

Heh. I know it wasn't meant as an insult, but that body was not one of the low quality FBM bodies being sold. It was an AKALMP VLM body. There were only around 30ish of them made. At one point in time, I had a thread going to locate as many as possible. I believe we found about a dozen of them. I had two - the second recieved some very extensive milling(Envy if anyone remembers - sold it before finishing it though).

The only gun I kept is my orange/red acidwashed VLM Spyder.

Some of my other favorites include AODSnyper's old school Spyder, as well as some of the old school Spyders made by HKS, Matt-SC, and WeekapaugG.

Cougar20th has some nice team sponsored original VLMs that I like for collector value.

I like some of the earlier iterations of Carbine's Hornet, but I think its rather over done in some of the later versions.





Glad some of you guys enjoyed my work from back in the day. Almost makes me want to buy Envy back and blow everything up to this date out of the water as far as a truly 'custom' looking Spyder goes. I do know where Envy resides still :)

Anyone ever finish any of my custom SBM bodies? They were perfect foundations for custom Spyders, more practical than the VLMs as well. I still know where one of them sleeps too.

O M G! its teh BuG! my personal top 3's would have to be the Evo, the Classic, and the Hornet before it got re-annoed.
