how far would you go with your gun and when do you feel like you spent enough on your gun??? i'm asking this because i got my 04 imagine about 2 month ago as a gift and i have been spending a lot of money on to this gun. my friends tell me, with all the money i spent i can buy a brand new gun. i think i spent about $250 but i would've spent more if my friends didnt help me out. i got VL revolution from a friend and i just needed to change the shell and i got used PMI 44/3000 tank from a friend as a gift but for barrel, bolt, drop forward, asa, grip, feedneck, and regulator it came out of my own pocket. i think i'm pretty much done with my imagine and im proud of it. few people might say finish the upgrade with rocking tirgger or install t-board but i say NO! YOU GO TO HELL!!!!! :D

yep....valve, striker, spring kit, TBoard with breakbeam eyes, eye covers, get a few extra 9.6v rechargables to change out so play isn't interrupted

Take what you have and make it the best you can afford... Then when you are tired of it part it out and get a new marker.

I'm completely satisfied with my marker minus the parts I have on the way and T-Board. AKA, it's fully upped. :D

Up it to how you play. If you play woodsball mainly speed really isn't that big of a goal. If you play speed ball mainly then make it fast. Either way you want to try to make it as efficient as possible, so upgrading your internals and regulator is almost a must. Do what you want to do to it and if there is something that you want to accomplish and don't know how, ask, we'll help. If you are anything like me you'll do one thing, then say ok, but if I did this it would be cool too. Then you'll say okay, I like that, now I should do this, and so on and so on. Just have fun with it.

it really depends on you, because on my last spyder i spent at least $500 on it and i wasn't completely finished when i parted it out and sold it.

Well personaly the more you do to a gun the more you will get attatched to it until you have a epiphinie and decide to sell.
Ive gone this far so i will decid to keep on going and use my finished project as a backup or keep it for years and sell as a classic
I would go all the way. Make it as good as posibble. When i say that I don't just mean performnce. I mean looks to, I think that a major part in this sport is intimidation. Get the q louder, silencer maybe a stock I dunno I dont like them to well. Dont get a scope they are point less and I dont like the rocking trigger, it just seems weird to shoot.
