I want to convert my Icon Z (info here (http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=15025&page=3)) into being magazine-fed. It's a full spyder clone and I wanted to know if anyone knows how to accomplish this?

its not possible. you would need a warp feed or q-loader type setup to push the balls up into the feedneck from the magazine

I mean the T68 mags (http://rap4.com/paintball/os/paintball-rounds-magazine-p-1961.html) or the RAP mags (http://rap4.com/paintball/os/rap4-magazine-p-49.html) I would probably use the RAP mags because they hold more.

not possible mate, and it would require a lot of body work to the gun. Also why would you really want to spend 37.00 to just hold 20 paintballs....no offence just hopper and a fake mag would prolly be better.

DF I put links to the mags in my post where it says "RAP mags" click same for T68.
LostCause: I would like a mag so that I don't have something, like a hopper or a q-loader sticking out somewhere.

sorry, im kind of out of it right now (see flame therapy)

it wont work. if you compare a t68 to a spyder, you'll notice that they have their tanks INSIDE the stock, meaning they function much like a hammer or other pump. they're single tube, with the valve BEHIND THE bolt instead of under it, allowing the paint to be fed up from the bottom as well as down through the feedneck. you cant do that to a STBB obviously, because the valve is directly below the bolt and feedneck.

Basic T68 model (http://rap4.com/paintball/os/t68-m18-p-4094.html)
