...upgrades and stuff, should I go out and test my gun with all stock parts first? I mean, unless I go out in my backyard with Co2 and snow on the ground and like 5 degree weather, I won't be testing soon, all my local fields are closed untill march, and the indoor place is closed for remodeling or something. So should I just buy what I probably need now, or wait to test?

I know, I haven't left the house with my Co2, im not crazy, but I mean, it was recommended that I go out and see what I need the most. Im very low on cash, thats really the reason. I was looking into an egg, but i was also looking into the smart parts teardrop barrel, and then again I defenitly want a different paint job. So thats what im sayin. Is hopper really the most needed for me right now (i have all stock, nothings changed)?

needed the most?....right now if its all stock.....

1. Barrel(Teardrop, Progressive, J&J, CP)
2. Feedneck(Either a slip on(cheaper) or a clamping)
3. Delrin Bolt(ACP makes cheap bolts)
4. Fast Hopper(Eggy, Halo)

About the only things you really need. You can go from there with diffrent things tho.

So the stock hopper will keep up with what im usually shooting (about 12-13 bps at most)? I guess it's really my choice then??

a stock hopper(non-electric) only feeds 2-3 bps

ok then thats not going to keep up, thats not good. (a guy at my local field has a purple angel, i got like 12-13 on an average, but thats also an angel, so...) Ok, so sounds like im going to need hopper first....ok then

Ok, my friend is recommending this extreme rage hopper, only feeds up to 9, but he said it would leave me enough for a tear drop, and give me a lot more bps. Good or bad idea?

Extreme Rage is blech. Find a used VL Revolution (Revvy) for about $25-30 or a VL Evolution (Eggy) for $25-40. ;)

save that for when your are done upgrading. the last thing you want to do is get your whole gun ano'd and then start replacing parts. once you get everything on your gun, then get it done. most places will do up to 15 pieces for the same price as 6 or whatever, so you can even get some stock pieces ano'd along with your complete gun.

Yeah, I figured i'd wait a while for that. But im still not sure what fricken hopper, I mean I can't find any eggy's used, and i can't buy a new one. But like my friend said, I could buy a cheap one, and still have enough for the barrel I want.

But then again, I am using Co2, and I could switch to Compressed Air. There are just tooooo many things. Thats really why I want to know what I should buy first.

wellu need to take steps. get a list of every single thing u need or want to get for ur gun. then get the prices for everything. then once u get money buy what u want and then after u buy it cross it off the list.

I got an eggy you can buy stop making excuses. :p PM me if you really want one.

there is a huge list of things you could do for a spyder in the end chances are you will have a 100% custom gun, i still love my spyder and thanks to Dex it is 1 of a kind.

i love you too LOL...and to answer the dude's question...get barron's Eggy...then a feedneck (just to get rid of the plastic one, if that's what you have), then you could buy a barrel, then HPA. Those are the most important things right now.

Look in the BST forum as well, can find some parts you need for a decent price, also try your local shop, I just picked up an eggy with Z board used not too long ago for $17.00, just had to buy shells because I didn't like the scratched up ones it came with.

Ok, wow, I made a list, its fricken huge, and actually, I got a guy at school, who plays, he has a brand new rev he got for xmas un opened, he wants to sell for 15 bucks. So I think I'll just buy off of him. But thanks anyway. And thanks for all the help so far guys!
