Hey all. Im not sure this is in the right section but...

Im still learning my older model spyders and I need help identifying a spyder I picked up at a garage sale for $25 (came with a 12oz, hopper, and hard gun case...good deal :thumbup:)

I pretty much no nothing about it...except that is says "Taso Spyder 45" on the gripframe and has a crazy anno. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks and now for the pics (I can get more if needed) -

DAMN! nice find!

that is a Spyder Compact. it has a TASO parts kit, i.e. - expansion chamber, .45 aluminum frame, sharkgill (tiger as they called it) sight-rail, and duckbill ASA. it also looks like it has a PMI Perfect trigger (which i've been looking for). the only thing it is missing is a matching TASO Eliminator barrel and CO2 tank.

i still have a couple old TASO adds from '96 APG. i'll see if i can get some scans.

excellent marker!

Whoa...I actually have something worth keeping. Thanks for the help fellas.

Haha...the trigger actually is being held by gorilla glue cause it broke when I was cleaning it up :D ... :(

I almost didn't pick it up, but I couldn't resist that anno and the deal itself. Thanks again for helping me find out what it is.:waytogo:
