i just received my Spyder MR3 in the mail today. This is my first paintball gun. I am wondering what upgrades I need/should have. I already bought a Halo B V35 hopper and a PMI Pure Energy tank. I just want to know what else I can upgrade. Links to products would be a big help, as I have no clue where to buy them. Thank you in advance. Looking forward to being active on this forum!

A new barrel will help out a lot. I have a 14" J&J ceramic on mine. Other than that I didn't do anything else to mine. J&J ceramics are everywhere. Just google it and you will find a lot of places that have them. Oh yeah a trinity feed neck is a must. Not sure where i got mine, like i said, just google it.

Might want to change the bolt but with the Halo it might not be needed. Get the 2-oring from ACP (http://www.alamocitypb.com/MANUFACTPAGES/kingman.html) if you have blow back troubles

did you have to do anything to fit the j&j barrell on it? I read somewhere that you have to customize something

-Trinity clamping feedneck dont want to smash that new halo with a crapy plastic feedneck.
-Remote coil if you dont already have one is nice to.

some fit, some don't, I believe the new ones do fit though.

with the trinity feedneck, make sure you get the ones with the eye cover. and one problem with trinity feednecks is that you will have to sand down you halo feedneck for it to fit well. there are other feednecks out there that will fit the halo but,(to my knowledge) trinity is the only company that makes the MR feedneck that covers the eyes

I have the J&J S2 and it wont fit and I have J&J Ceramic and it fits.
Hope that helps

any suggestion on upgrading the board to full auto with eye?

1.) Buy a marker with NXL mode and learn that any reputable field won't allow fully automatic.

-OR-

2.) Get a T-Board and learn that any reputable field won't allow fully automatic.
