Possible o-ring issues?
I did a search and it was not conclusive as to if that is my issue.

My issue is that when I rapid fire my Spyder (Old school compact) it will shoot fine then all of the sudden act as if the tank is empty and rapid fire. I will then cock it back and it will shoot fine then do it again.

I have check for anything that might be keeping air from reaching the valve, and I replaced all the springs. I can only assume that the o-rings might need to be replaced. I just wanted to make sure before I spend $9.00 on a o-ring kit for the gun. And yes I ran oil through the gun as well. I have had this gun for many years and never had this issue.

Thank you for any responses!

Dont pay 9 bucks for an oring kit - that's outrageous. Go to your local fastenal or oilfield supply and get orings from there...much cheaper.

Sounds like it could be a sear issue. Check to make sure your frame is bolted tightly against the gun, then check your sear to make sure there's a good, sharp edge on it.

Re: Possible o-ring issues?
The sear does appear to have some wear on it. I assume I will have to buy a whole grip, or can I find just the sear?

Just take some sand paper and sand it sharp again - be sure not to do too much though. Just enough to sharpen up the edge. Then make sure the grip frame is tight on the body.

Re: Possible o-ring issues?
After taking it all apart again and doing more research, it appears I used a tank o-ring on the striker, and from what I read that could be my issue as well. I did compare my sear with another spyder and it wasn't really bad. It's been a ***** to find the damn red o-ring. Oh and I found out my gun is a Spyder One. I can't believe I forgot that.

Thank you for the help.. I really do appreciate it a lot!
