My experiences with vs2 and how to fix everything so far

1. Oil everything that moves (except the bolt I have never had to oil the delrin bolt) with 3 in 1 or any brand paintball oil I have used goldcup and even the extreme rage oil has worked for me with my vs.

2. Turn the on/off all the way. Gosh I don’t know how many times people have asked me what is wrong and they haven’t done that.

3. Clean your vs internal everything especially the body lots of people I know with the vs neglect this.

4. If your vs is not firing Gosh I really hate these two but check to see if eyes are on and no paint is in the marker. When the vs is uncocked the bolt will allow the solenoid to click because its eyes think it is a paintball. Now Number 2 your trigger is probably to close or too far away from the frame. “What it can be too close?” Yes!!! I don’t know how many people have asked my this I hate it when people will check everything but they’re trigger

5. My fore grip is loose, remove the extra washer this thread helps http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=7285

6. Not Cocking, up the pressure

7. Double feeding, bad dents send them in or use the extra ones. Bounce is not double feeding check your trigger before your dents I had bounce because my vs trigger had bounce.

8. The vs3 needs slimmer barrels because of it’s design

9. Short drop of/balls not going far, your bolt maybe in upside down the hole goes down.

(edit) you will need the trinity front block or another one that comes to use a front reg and remember the asa is the reg and on/off
10. helpful thread http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=7633

11. Vs ups trinity trigger (roller baring or blade I believe) T-board by scenario dreams Trinity front blocks Ion/impulse threaded feed necks

I apologize for errors either technical grammatical or spelling wise in advance

take em out wipe em down add oil to o-rings thats how I do it use a soft cloth paper towls are ok if you only have those. Use a clean and equaly soft cloth to wipe the inside body it self. Be careful if you need to clean your valve for some reason only use something soft to remove a spyder valve body. The disassembly instructions should be in the manual unlessyou got a bad manual?

It's similar to other spyders dissasembly and there are videos on the kingman site

Is the marker well lubed? Clean of paint debris? That'd be the first thing I'd check! ;)

Its generally a good idea to make sure that everythings cleaned and lubed when somethings not working right. I actually strip my gun down the entire way, and run water through the body quite frequently, in fact after any day of play in which I chop.

I'd say about 250psi-ish. :)

add that recocking prolems could also be because of to High pressure, such as the spring does not have enought strength to move the cup seal, this problem happend to me when i was using co2 when it was very cold out, some liquid co got into my gun, spiked the guns psi to where the gauge needle was hitting the "R" in "Spyder" on the gauge.

having recocking issues..... try shaving some rubber off the ball detents...I guess when the gun is new, the rubber ball detents rub on the bolt and restrict it from moving freely...first cock the gun slowly and feel if in fact your ball detents are rubbing on the bolt....just make sure that you do not cut too much or your paintballs will roll out of your barrel.....peace

The air leaking down the barrel is not in the list.

--The reason (at least for me) is that my balance valve was not soo balance. It couldn't move fully to the "closed" position to stop the air flow through the barrel.

This is very simple to fix. I took apart everything and took out the valve. I noticed the valve pin didnt move very well even though it was covered oil lube from the factory. So I cleaned off all the oil/lube that was on it and reapplied oil/lube to it. Make sure to get some inside the valve because there are a few small o-rings in side or take it apart and lube them directly(probably not needed). After it was lubed/oiled the valve seemed more smother in its movement. Put everything back together and all was well.

I shot a few times and it seemed to be working. Couldnt try it more because my dog was freaking out cause i was firing inside (Also not recommended =P ).

NOTE: I cant wait to get out and actually shoot over a crono because from dryfireing and playing around in the back yard everything runs pretty smooth at about 225psi. I just have no idea what my fps. =P

Also are you useng a HPA tank and not a LPA tank? a low pressure tank that has an output of (i think 250-300?) wich has a lower recharge rate. I always use HPA wich has an output of 850 wich will supply any LP gun (just make shure u hav a reg LOL)

Well if ur reg isnt broken in it might be that. or if your running A LPA tank at only 450psi it might be shootdown.

one problem i ran into is your gun will not dry fire right, replace the the two o-rings on the outside of the valve, the one on the valve pin inside the valve, the two on the front black and replace the cup seal, i did this and now my gun works to perfection, again

There is no point of buying anything that you don't know why your buying it in the first place. I can't tell you what its used for but not if you should use it.
A VS2 is a complete gun, A Egg 2 is a loader and an ACS Bolt is bolt... so i don't understand your question.

you should play more piano if your having trouble pushing the key's maybe use rubber bands to resistance train your fingers.

Don't revive old threads. just make a new one that is relevant to your question. This one is about 1.5 years old.

Hello i'm new to this not sure where to turn maby you can help. I'm having problems with my Vs2. It all started with similar problems i read about on this forum recocking issues. I tried alot of the tips you described worked for alittle while. Then it started locking up. It would shoot once or twice and then just click, click, shoot once, click, click,and then blew the factory gauge. I took it to the pro shop at the field i play at (Paintball Arkansas)they put on a new gauge and changed the spring. Worked great the next few times i used it then started again shot, click, click, shot, shot, click, click. Couldn't dial in the psi kept moving from 225-300 and blew a Bob Long gauge. What could going on? Signed: Frustrated!
