View Full Version : Kingman Spyder Classic 1995 (I think)

05-03-2011, 10:38 AM
I've been searching the web for 2 weeks now looking for the teardown specs for an old gun but I can't seem to find anywhere.

I'm new to paintball and just starting out, figured I'd buy a cheap old gun to start and want to be able to tear it down.

Can anyone help.

The gun is silver and black and looks like this except the barrel doesn't have the holes on the end: http://www.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=http://walkerz.org/images/pball/Pix/Kingman/Spyder.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.paintballcenario.com/forum/viewtopic.php%3Ff%3D1%26t%3D8087%26start%3D15&usg=__C8E8qF3zf8oq_5DvfwpV97UBg9E=&h=364&w=686&sz=31&hl=en&start=3&zoom=1&tbnid=KkvbwmYtG-uNTM:&tbnh=74&tbnw=139&ei=qUnATZ-oEoLW0QHpxdmBBQ&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dkingman%2Bspyder%2Bclassic%26um%3D1%2 6hl%3Den%26sa%3DN%26biw%3D1345%26bih%3D583%26tbm%3 Disch&um=1&itbs=1

Looks like a spyder classic alright. I did a quick google search and found this teardown of a TL+


It's not your gun, but it should be rather similar aside from the vertical adapter / low pressure chamber (part under the barrel that sticks out). At least the insides anyway.

You can basically take your gun, buy a bunch of upgrades, and have it look like the one I linked you to.

this is the closest manual you're going to get: http://www.spyder.tv/section/support/diagrams/spyder_special_edition.pdf

Hmmmm, single trigger frame - can make a little money off that, especially if it's completely intact (including the safety).

Hint hint!

there arent too many parts to it really compared to other guns. just do it on a clean flat surface. i find that a towel can be nice to use, you wont scratch the table and nothing will roll away

That's the gun that got me into paintball. Still have it, albeit in pieces.

I was also thinking of re-painting the gun as the paint is chipped and worn looking. Thought metalic gold might look different.
Any other suggestions?

spray paint will chip easily, its not worth it.
