..........10 years of service & Im finally retiring my Spyder TL+. Had some good times & some really ****ty times but it was all good. The best efficiency I got with it was ~2500 rounds on a 20oz Co2 tank. Never could get it tuned back to those number but oh well. She has been stripped of all of the AKALMP, Palmer, Maddman, DYE & Mako parts. The body & lower tube assembly will be put up & the aftermarket parts listed above will be sold. Oh well, I already have its replacement lined up, an Arrow Precision Sovereign III.

Use it!!! Fill it full of custom & Palmer parts & make it a badass mechanical Co2 only gun.

Won 2 more OTMs in March 2010. Put the KAPP cradle back on there, single palmer & AKALMP bolt/beaver tail. Also swaped to a 68ci tank for Co2.

Swapped out frames for a single trigger Bob Long frame. & swapped the 68ci tank for an 88ci.

About the only way to get more old school with it is have a fatty striker & a pole cat right feed set up.

Nice. How did you manage to use a reg as an ASA?

The female palmers have ASA threads for an input.
