Screw the tank into the asa on your gun. Turn off the safety, point it at something and pull the trigger. It's that easy!

Yeppers. Ready to go out of the box. You don't want to get a LP (low pressure) tank though. The output of those is too low for a Spyder. So you will need to get an HP output HPA (high pressure air/ "nitro") tank. These are the most common tanks anyway.

haha .. yep ... if you do any homemade mods or get new parts for better air flow .. like a VA or valve .. your gonna need a reg to down the FPS so you can have better efficiency for a lp system :p

ok i just bought a 47 in/ 3000 psi tank is that any good?

yeah ... just get it filled and then plug it into your gun .. and that should be good

Perfect, just get it filled and screw the tank into your ASA and you're ready to go, you will probably have to make a small adjustment to get the same velocity you had with co2.

i got about 100 shots out of it what would be a good tank size to have?

... you get 100 shots out of your 47ci3k tank ?? ... you should be getting 500 shots ... atleast ...

Well it depends ... if and of your fields'll fill 4500psi .. then get that .. but if it's 3000psi .. i'd get that so it's cheaper ... also ... it depends if you want it filled often .. or filled rarely ...

How did it shoot though? pretty accurate? inconsistant? I have heard similar stories my friend had a Spyder Limited edition and he also said he got about 100 or so shots.

wow man, thats really bad, check for leaks and strip your gun down and lube it, you should get like 500 WORST CASE

Yeah, I got not too many either with my tank, of course I dunno how much, because I was dryfiring to test my lp setup... I could have fired 500 times, but I'm not sure... Idid fire alot to check for recocking at fast cycling/had fun scaring people with no barrel at various input pressures.
