View Full Version : Spyder 2000 problem

05-20-2008, 08:12 AM
My gun is firing eratically. It will work for a few shots then it fires and makes a sound like it's out of air. I recock and it drops two or three at time then it might fire one or two correctly. Not to mention the range is crap. I changed all the o-rings according to ottersc list and still no difference. It has a x-chamber and spring kit but that's it for upgrades. I've only been playin for a few years and I'm far from an expert on markers. I NEED HELP

By "drops two or three at the same time" do you mean that two or three paintballs come out at once?

Is there wear on the bottom of your striker where the sear would catch it? Sometimes over time that will wear down and the sear will need adjusting/the striker replacing.

also make sure all of the screws are screwed in completely on the grip frame.

Yeah it drops two or three balls at a time. and sorry to sound stupid but what is a sear?

sounds like
a. bad detent
b.sear not catching

a sear catches the striker on the grip frame ^that may help^

I bought a new detent, haven't tried it yet, but what can I do about the sear? I don't see it in the parts diagram.

Nevermind found the sear, can I adjust it or do I have to get new parts?

What springs are in the marker in the valve/main? How far in is the velocity adjuster on the back? Is it freshly oiled?

The valve spring and main are from the Bulldog upgrade kit. The adjuster is all the way in, and I just changed and lubed the rings.

Take out the adjust some, dude! That might be it right there! :)

What upgrade kit are you referring to, Painter? I've never heard of the Bulldog upgrade kit.

You mean take back out the velocity adjuster? I don't know what company makes it it's just called Bulldog. It came with all new basic springs and three different levels of hardness for the main spring.

my friend was having that problem. We had just filled up his tank and were shooting it but it made that wierd sould like it was out of air every time we shot and it decocked. I tightened up where the disconnect hose meets the grip and it shot fine.
