Is it possible to take out the gas through front grip adapter out so I can install an expansion chamber/regulator on my sonix?

what year is your gun? if its the original or the '07 or newer, it'll fit. but if it has a rubber bike grip, it won't.

It's the 2007 edition.
Never mind now.. It just came right off when I pit a bit of oil in the gap to loosen it a bit.

New question...
What is the pressure rate for the classic spyders? I know they are high pressured but about what PSI is it?

Also.. Just wondering...
What allen key size is given with the spare parts kit to dissemble the marker and adjust the velocity? Is it metric or imperial and what size is it?

the lowest i've seen a stock spyder recock is at 250 psi, but your velocity won't even break 200 fps. for a decent fps, i would say about 700 psi.

spyder screws are all metric, although i cant remember the exact size.

It uses 3mm metric screws. But I can't seem to adjust the velocity anymore... Before I lost the original allen key. I could use it for everything on my sonix. But seeing I got a key set... None of the keys seem to change the velocity.

Sounds like you got the wrong key set, probably Standard instead of the Metric. Is it a red set? Normally the red is for Metric and the yellow is for Standard.

Standard in my country is metric so I'm guessing standard for you guys is imperial. I've got both sets. None of them seem to be able to change the velocity.

well dude just buy a allen key set for 3 buck at a hardware store ohh and can anyone tell me what size are the screws for the frame and if its metric or sumthin tnx

check the general spyder forum, theres a thread size listing.

Are you using the short end or long end? I find that sometimes the short works better than the long. Also, how does the threading look? Any massive amount of wear?
