Okay i have a Spyder RS and I have no idea of what is wrong with it. All i know is that when i put on my air tank and fire once it has that continuous fire thing like when your tank runs out of air, but my tanks our full and i just dont know what is wrong with it. Any help on how to solve this problem would be greatly appreciated

First things first. Make sure your frame is tight. Second, take out the striker and lube the o-rings. Third, make sure the lube you're using is Dow33, Sl33k lube, or Slick Honey. Don't use gun oil, it's bad for the rings.

If that fails, let me know... but that's usually the problem.

You tighten the screws that hold the frame to the body with an alan key. Are you sure you put the internals back in right, then?

Is the tank screwed in all the way?

If it is, there might be a problem with the cupseal and it might not be opening the way it should.

Start with the manual. ;) Save it to your computer and print it out. Keep the printed-out copy with your gear in case you need it with you on the field. Page 6 tells you about the regulator.

Well, if the internals are all good and lubed, then just turn the regulator up by turning the regulator adjuster collar counter clockwise with a crescent wrench or the one supplied with the marker. :)
