Well I've been making a Spyder pump, using Vikingshadow's tutorial, and I got the idea of putting a 12g changer on it. Question is: How many shots would I get from a 12g?

roughly 20 before you start noticing a major drop off. 30 max.

Oh. . . Not too many shots =/

Is there any way to make it more efficient?

Oh. Well, 20 shots is better than what I expected. I thought I'd only get around 6-10. Thanks, guys!

If you want something compact with more capacity get a 3.5oz or 4oz Co2 tank. You can get roughly 200 or so shots from one -

And you should be able to screw it right into the VA and have it work. (Spyder VA's still have the little nub to push in the valve pin right?)

Yes, I screw my 3.5 directly into the VA. You might want to drill out the hole a bit more in the VA though (both of them) to make it higher flowing.

20 shots would be great off of a 12 g on a spyder, I think.

you could also get some of those 88gram airsource tanks, and an adapter for them. you can get roughly 200 shots from one of those tanks...

Yea, I considered the 88 grams, but I decided on going with the 12 gram changer. Shooting until the cartridge was completely empty, I got 39 shots. Not too bad. Drop-off, around 21-23, like DF said.

All in all, not bad. I'm almost done with my pump project; really slow progress (Started in September O_O), but I'm extremely happy with how it's looking. Now I'm just waiting on my Dye single trigger frame, and it'll be complete!

Yea, I was surprised, too! Maybe it's the fact that I'm using a Check-it VA, and the bolt doesn't have the venturi? And the velocity is turned almost all the way down (Still hitting 275-285 fps).

Either way, I'm pretty happy that it'll last long :D
