so we all know about black widow spiders right? how about a black widow spyder? that is my plan, a mainly black imagine with red accents. it will take time, mainly because i don't have a steady cash flow, but i will do it. i will take what i have, a green imagine with black upgrades, change the body out with a black one as soon as possible, and add more black and some red.

here is what i have right now (excluding the black v/a and red sweet spot):

here is what i'm adding next:
of course a black body

cp reg black (got it!)

maybe i'll change my macro to red too, i don't know. tell me what you think and any suggestions are welcome. since this is an imagine project i put it here, if it is in the wrong place it can be moved.

Alright man im totaly digging the idea of the spyder project. But there is one problem with one of your choices of upcoming upgrades. I dont think the red feedneck wwould compliment the rest of the gun. But its your decision.

Good luck dude and buy a CP reg lol

bigred76
01-01-2006, 02:22 PM
Yeah, the feedneck would be a bit too much...A red CP reg would work great for this one and look good; nice idea Chubbss!

ttink
01-01-2006, 02:26 PM
Thats a cool idea, but i agree that thats too much red. Id get the grips in black (those are good grips that you chose btw), and the feedneck. Then it woiuld look pretty cool.

Get a black clamping feedneck with the clamping part in red. That'd take care of the too much red in it!

WhatThaSmurf
01-01-2006, 03:28 PM
where would i find a red and black feed neck for not too much money, and should i get the long or short cp reg? and i was debating on the red or black grips.

bigred76
01-01-2006, 03:35 PM
Go out and see which fits your hand better. Only way to tell. The only difference between the two is how they feel in your hands because of different length. I personally prefer a long CP because my hands are big.

PBN would have a clamping feedneck for a good price, just gotta search their Miscellaneous forums. ;)

Dude, you don't up non-sales threads....:nutkick:

You might want to take the images of the stuff you want and Photoshop it onto your current marker pic to see how it will look. ;)

WhatThaSmurf
01-01-2006, 05:49 PM
so i've been told about the up-ing, but i couldn't think of other another to say it. i've never been good at photoshop, but i'll give it a try.

bigred76
01-01-2006, 05:53 PM
Haha, just say "I updated my original post." ;)

It's easy to do the Photoshop thing: you just crop the images and paste them in the appropriate spots. :)

yo smurf i couldnt find a all black body for the imagine. thats why im getting the imagine led and putting all my stuff in that. then sell all the stuff i dont need to buy more parts. its a good deal if u ask me. but hey if u find a regular black body and know anyone that has a spare ESP trigger frame for cheap then holla at me.

01-07-2006, 03:01 PM
Yeah no ups bro. No need. Nice project though. You should look at the SPPS line of triggers. The Check-It triggers are kinda dated and old. JMHO.

covert24
01-07-2006, 04:08 PM
those check it triggers work like a charm tho. with my old imagine it ripped even with the stock trigger board. i got it up to the max 13bps

got the trigger and v/a, i'll get a new pic as soon as i get the next piece of the puzzle, probably the feed neck or the stickies

Oh my god...I don't even know where to start.

Get rid of the Apex piece of crap. Get a real barrel. I'd suggest a CP one piece. Good cheap accurate.

Get rid of that hideous stock on the back, Its not needed and looks retarded.

Get rid of the remote connection on the ASA. Get yourself a unimount type ASA and a hole adapter and now you have the tank as a stock.

Sell the Apex, Revvy/Reloader, Stock and remote setup and get a HPA tank, because I'm sure you don't have one. If you do have one, get a Halo or Reloader B. You'll be set and mow peoples faces off. Your marker itself is good, but you crapped it up with junk.

paintmaster
01-18-2006, 06:25 PM
its an amazing gun just take the barrel and stock off and it will ripp;)

LOL

That was funny.

Don't flame this guy for his gun choices. He probably likes it like that. We all have our own opinions and if you want to provide constructive criticism by all means go for it.


Nitrobassboats--- Nice gun. Personally I don't like the stock, but it looks like you may play scenario type woodsball games. (Stock and Remote)

OK my .02

Thanks for the comments guys,i will take into consideration.
The marker is for bushball/scenario and ill give you a little low down on the
performance of this Imagine:
lite valve/lite main without stock at 275psi set at minimum velocity
340 fps
any setting change to raise velocity it shoots way up to, well chrono will not read 400fps +
Now add the stock , i am able to lower velocity to 270 fps at the same psi
so =stock stays(has something to do with main spring lengths but since most are the same length it makes no difference)
BTI Apex, all ill say is bring on your flatlines.
ps(i have over 20 different Spyder barrels)
The gun is run on hpa not co2,though it doesnt complain if the need arises(thats a BL Torpedo there not an x chamber)
Halo bahhhhhh the marker works just peachy with the Revvy
Well in conclusion a flatline might hit you from a long way off,this one might knock you out.
Now a Halo for my new MR2 is a thought............hmmmmmmm

geeZus
01-19-2006, 02:12 PM
You are doing something way wrong if at 275 it is shooting 340fps. You need to play with the spring combos to get the desired FPS, or you have the velocity screw turned all the way in, which will mess everything up.

bigred76
01-19-2006, 05:01 PM
Dude...if you are shooting at 340fps, you're gonna hurt someone. Plain and simple: TURN YOUR VELOCITY WAY THE **** DOWN. Turn your pressure down, or your velocity screw, or change the valve spring to a hard spring. If you do not, then you will cause someone else serious injury. If you "gog" someone, then you will ****ing make it so they cannot see after the ball breaks right ****ing through the lens. I do not have to tell you how dumb it would be for that to happen. It aint that difficult to keep your markers under 290fps. :dodgy:

bigred,i agree totally thats why i said the stock stays,also every spring combo has been tried,the marker runs fine with the stock and am able to chrono in the 270s,many people from this forum helped in the building of this
marker with their knowledge and input.
Red i didnt mean to take over the thread i apologize if indeed i did, im fininshed with posts to the thread.

personally goign for the black widow look i'd say only ONE thing red. the only red on the black widdows is a little hourglas on its belly. not accents all over. i was thinking just a black marker with the hour glass on my qloaders.

04-17-2006, 06:51 AM
Yes, but I was thinking that if my whole gun was black except for one piece, it just wouldn't look right.
