well, i got my last part yesterday and i think i'm finally done! 11 years in the making and more parts on and off than i can remember, but my Classic is now complete!

first off, a list of what on/in her:

Spyder Classic:
-DYE .45 Single Trigger Frame
-DYE Sticky 3 Grip
-DYE Aluminum 14" Barrel
-DYE Titanium Boomstick with 14" Tip Barrel
-Kingman Stock Brass Lined 9.5" Barrel
-Kingman Aluminum Ball Detent Cover
-Extreme Rage Aluminum Powerfeed Plug
-Planet Eclipse Velocity Adjuster
-Smart Parts Vertical Adapter
-Custom Products Gas-Thru Foregrip
-AKA Mitey-Max LPC
-AKA Dust Cover
-AKA Lightning Bolt
-Shocktech Cocking Rod
-Maddmann Rocket Valve
-Dark Horizon Titanium Striker
-Shocktech (short) Silver Shim

three spring kits; Maddmann, Shocktech and 32 Degrees and that's about it.

the only thing left is to send the receiver off for ano to match the Max-Flo.


so now here's some pic's:

started like this in '97 (that's not my original, just the receiver with the re-released Classic parts i ended up selling):

i've always loved your gun! i dont like how the cp is longer than your old gas-thru though. i would tell you to not anno the body, since that one is still in really good condition, and i've always liked that classic color, but you have a second one.

Looks great! Just seems, I don't know, correct, the way you have it. Way to go!

Question: Where did you find the safety and internals for the Dye frame? I have one and for the life of me can't find a safety or trigger for it. (I have a sear and spring.) The pins and safety I have are too small for the holes drilled into the frame...

DF - thanks! it's funny you say that... kind of a visual trickery going on there, the CP gas thru is only longer by about a short 1/8" at most. the Bel Sales gas thru was fatter and thus looked shorter; plus in the pic with the ESP grip frame, the frame is taller so the gas thru looks shorter. as for ano, still not exactly sold on doing it yet, but throwing the idea around. and alas i do only have this one, sold the other one a year or two ago.

Vik - thanks! it's been a while and i agree, it does just "fit" now. for an answer to your q: i had the internals from the original frame/s and just put them in. although i did have to buy an alternate safety to fit. it seems that Kingman made at least three different sized safety and the middle sized one fits the best. the pins all fit well except the trigger pin which was small, i just put a drop of super glue on the gnurled edge and it's good to go.

i think the one thing i really like about your gun is that a lot of the parts you used are older and not very common anymore.

the only thing I would change is the asa, idk why it just bothers me, other than that looks good

huh? the maxflow?? i think thats part of what makes the gun unique too. you hardly ever see spyders with maxflows, and you don't see a lot of maxflows in general.

You don't see many OG Maxflows anymore anyway. Not unless you see someone with a Shoebox Shocker.

I have to say, thats one of the cleanest OG Spyders I've ever seen. Everything on it is immaculately clean and free of wear/marks. It looks GREAT.

On a final note...

...Dre, what the hell? I don't get that at all haha.

Ohhh... I get it now.

Trying to comprehend stuff at 3AM after work and after a couple hot, drunk 22 yr olds were trying to get with me, doesn't really work.

HAHA! dont you hate it when that happens? and are you sure they were 22? i've learned to ID first.

I don't hate it... it was kind of flattering considering I'm only 18. I was just scared because I was all icky and nasty looking after reffing all day.

I'm positive they were over 20... you can tell. The blonde one said she was going to come in and visit me at work some time >.<

Sorry to get this thread off topic.

WHERE did you find that trigger frame? I have been looking for one for days and can't find it anywhere. Please help, anyone.

Yeah, I figured, but I'm so desperate to find one right now I had to ask. I think Vike stole the last one from ebay a couple weeks ago. And yes I say stole cuz I got on later that day he posted that he found it and there was nothing but the Bob Long, which I think is extremely ugly.

Hey, I didn't steal it. There was only one other bid on it the whole two days it was up. Got it for a steal though - brand new for 23 bucks. I searched around and they were marked at 60, so yeah.

But, if you do get one get ready. You can't find internals for them anywhere - I know, I spent the last 3 weeks looking...Buying them from AOD though, so I finally solved that problem!

Just gathering some spare parts is all. That's my story and I'm sticking with it!

That is a clean looking spyder. My only question is, how does it shoot?

hi guys! sorry for my absense, i was out of town for the weekend. thanks again for all of the nice comments, they are welcomed!

SpyderMan: it's really not that heavy at all, the gun itself seems to weigh about the same as my Ion. the reg and tank on the other hand is probably heavier than your standard screw in tank, ASA and vert. reg combined, but not by much.

cyberthrasher: DF is right, i've had this frame for quite some time. it's actually my second one, my first was the chrome version (that i'm in the process of re-obtaining hopefully, along with the Spyder i put it on). they are kinda hard to come by, and like Vik stated... if do you happen to find the frame you've done the easy part, the internals are the difficult pieces to find.

video? of a mech? hmmm, i'll have to see what i can do for that. i've never made a vid before but i'm sure it can't be that tough. i'll work on it.
