To get the most out of your 9 Volt battery on a Pilot or Electra take the coil set pin and grind it down to an overall length of 24mm or .945 inch remember not to grind it too short or you may not have enough pin length to push on the sear.

The increased gap between the sear and coil set pin allows the pin to accelerate with enough force to trip the sear properly even with a power supply that's below 8.5 volts.

I personally had a battery down to 8 volts and was still able to trip the sear before I had to replace the battery.

so this means you could use a normal 9 volt on those spyder ones that need a 9.6?

Simple answer..... Yes.

My test results are based on the 08 Electra & 08 Pilot. I haven't had a chance to test it on any of the earlier versions. The coil set on the older Spyders are different, so the measurements will be different too.

The only other Spyder guns that use this newer type coil sets are the VS1, VS2, VS3, RS & RSX.

I'll post my data once I've completed testing this mod on my RSX...
