Hey eveyone I'm new to the forums and my brother got me a spyder xtra for x mas. I love it lol but is it normal for after your done shooting and you take your co2 tank off it shoots alot of co2 through a tiny hole where the tank goes in at. I did'nt know if it was normal or not so any tips or anything would help thanks guys :)

Welcome to the forum! Ask as many questions as you need, were here to help you. Read the Ultimate Resource thread in my sig to help you learn alot!

Yes it is normal, and there is a reason that hole is there. It is suggested after you twist tank off the gun a little, twist 1/4th of a turn and shoot (make sure they gun isnt loaded) and keep doing this until the tank will not recock.
Then take the tank off as usual.

thanks that helps alot :) I thought it might be normal but just wanted to ask for sure. By the 2nd day I got my gun I got on here and found out how to take it all apart and put it back together for cleaning. I was looking at rocking triggers shooting 30 bps is that a good upgrade to my gun? I was also looking at a 23" sniping barrel that looked like it would be alot of fun lol.:D

I wouldnt go with a barrel longer than 16". Waste of gas.

The rocking trigger is a love or hate. Either you love it or you dont. I personally dont but a used esp frame would be cheaper.

whats a esp frame do and what is it?

Dont get a 23 inch sniper barrel. There is no such thing as a sniper in paintball, because there is a maximum FPS limit that everyone shoots.

Id only get a 12 or 14 inch barrel.

a board has firing modes
semi auto, 3 round burst, 6 round burst, full auto, ect.

a new barrle, and feedneck are a MUST

It's ready to shoot compressed air as it is

so all I got to do is buy the tank? and don't they have something that goes on a air compressor so you can fill your tanks youself?

no. You need a scuba tank to fill the hpa tanks. The standard air compressor only puts out about 150 psi and you need something that gives out 3000-4500 psi to fill tanks.

I'm most likely getting a 2007 xtra for my girlfriend.
I was just wondering if there is anything that needs to be changed right away or if anyone has had any problems with the gun.
Oh, is there a acs bolt available for the xtra?
I have a MR1 and alas there is none for that.
