so i got back from paint balling today and the worst thing that happened was...
i got shot right in the trigger
so that was a mess and im not really sure on how to take the trigger off and i was tired to even beggin trying too
so i settled for papper towels and this little guy saved the day
had to take it all apart...
so now im pissed with the rocking trigger because its hard to take care of, and it runs down the battery way faster than a regular trigger (from a magazine) "The spyder rocking trigger is extremely fast over the chronograph, but it requires more concentraion to shoot quickly on the field of play more than it's worth" but i do shoot extremely fast with it any how im gonna be buying a vs2 pretty soon

And my next topic "Cleaning"
how often do u clean ur hoppers and how do u tell u need too?
for the past 2 times ive played i completely took apart and cleaned it and im tired of doing that so this time i stuck a paper towel inside of it and kinda wiped it
so yes tell me

and for kicks and giggles heres my little workstation
oh yea and u see the door with the ultra secuirity wood on it? yea well that wasnt us we just moved here and the people who used to live here thought a 2X6 could stop a burglar and to make it even more high tech they put it right next to the window
gotta have my tunes!

I don't wipe out my hopper unless a ball breaks on the inside... Depends on if I'm shooting fresh paint or not... but I usually don't have any residue on the inside to really worry about.

You could just buy a trigger frame from a VS2 instead of buying a whole new gun. Or you could trade with someone that has a VS2 and wants a rocking trigger frame. PBN is a good place to look for those kind of trades. If you want me to help you look, I'd be glad. I've been good at finding deals lately. (I'm going to have a thread up with the deals I've landed this week alone when I get the products)

****, I don't clean the inside of my hoppers at all except a squeegie up the feedneck if there's a broken ball, and wipe down the outside. Everything still works fine, just smells a lil' funky! :p

As for the gun, I'd just use q-tips. They've never let me down!

I clean out my loaders, and all my gear, every time I use them.

The slight oily residue from the paint gets in the loader and that makes me nuts.

Once you do it a few times it goes very quick.

And canned air is awesome :)

How do you get hit in the trigger?
Your fingers supposed to be there!

Your workstation looks good. Now you know how to clean the gun and all, which is the best way to know how the gun works.

yeah, i take my hopper completely apart because of that oily residue.

I'll take it apart if I get breaks,,, otherwise there's no point...

As to battery usage... that's not true at all... In fact, though I haven't see a close up of the board, I would bet its EXACTLY the same as the VS2 board - all they have to do is add a second microswitch, which can be done with ease outside of the board.

1. water not windex. Doesn't mater what it is, in paintball that's the rule. Don't use chemicals unless the manufacturer recommends them.
