I've had this thing since it came out, and it still works like a champ. I had bought a handful of upgrades back in the day, and I just recently have been putting some money into it again, and I'm happy I can still find some parts (though quite scarce!) :D It's currently operating around 275 - 325psi.

Upgrades Include:
14" Dye Aluminum Barrel (I have some others but they aren't pictured)
Tigershark sight rail
Crappy red-dot that is busted
AKA Lightning Bolt w/ rear-cocking
AKA Dust Cover
Some sort of rubber grip... it's not stock i know that much lol
ACP Derlin Striker
New Designz valve
Bob Long VA / Low Pressure
Kingman Regulator / Drop Forward
ACI Sub-Zero Six Stage Expansion Chamber
Velocity Thumb Adjuster
Macroline
Thumbscrews

And I've got an e-trigger on the way. So yeah, no reason for this post other than I figured somebody might enjoy it.

Pretty nice, although I would probably ditch the bottomline reg and expansion chamber for a nice inline reg and on/off ASA.

I know the kingman reg isnt the best, but between the expansion chamber and low pressure chamber, my gun stores about 3 or 4 shots worth of regulated air... idk, if I really start seeing how many bps i can get it may be worth getting a palmer reg or something, but I generally dont waste paint.

nice, that's a real classic :P kindof wish I still had an old spyder to break out every now and then.

I popped my paintball cherry with a Spyder Elite! Too bad it's in pieces now. Beautiful gun!
