Re: barrel materials questions

Id still like to know what the slickest possible setup would be. I assume the only barrels with teflon coatings are aluminum barrels. What about impregnating other materials with teflon, any...

Re: barrel materials questions

Well, I think the idea is that certain materials can be polished more perfectly than others. Aluminum can only possibly get so smooth, while steel can get smoother, etc. According to Palmer's...

barrel materials questions

Its generally accepted that the slicker the barrel material is against a paintball, the more accurate the barrel is. I know steel is slicker than aluminum, and brass slicker than steel, but what...

Re: Barrel length question...12" or 14"?

I should add, another important benefit of LP is that in the winter, CO2 works pretty good. No recocking or velocity problems since shooting pressure is lower than the winter can drop the pressure...

Re: Barrel length question...12" or 14"?

If you plan on running low pressure, Id say go with the 14", and dont over do it on the porting. Although 8" gets the ball accelerated to the appropriate velocity in a HP setup, that distance...

Re: Low Pressure Spyders, how low?

Wow that seems so odd to me that you can get the pressure that low with only modified stock internals. How many shots do you get out of your 48/3k? I get over 1000 with my 20oz, maybe as much as...

Low Pressure Spyders, how low?

Im sure this has come up before, but Im new here. Basically, I want to know what the lowest pressure Spyder out there is, not counting ones converted to ACs or Timmys (such as The One Kit). So,...

Re: Barrel length question...12" or 14"?

Getting the exact barrel length is a science. If youre not running LP, 12 should be fine. basically, an optimal setup would have enough unported length to allow the paintball to accelerate to the...

Re: History of the Spyder

Actually I came up with '92 because of the expiration date of the CO2 tank. However, since Spyders werent sold before '94, it is highly unlikely that this gun was made before '94. And Im not sure...

History of the Spyder

Hello everyone. Ive been searching the web for a while but can't find much information on the history of the Spyder. I have many questions. Was it the first to use this design (IOW, are Pirahnas,...

Re: My classic Spyder

Well, Ive seen no need to replace it. Its LP so it shoots fine in the winter even on CO2, trigger is plenty fast at 13bps in semi. Never chops except in winter (I suspect its my steel barrel...

Re: My classic Spyder

As far as annodizing, I dont think thats what I want to do. Its an old body and Id like to keep it in its original condition. Plus the barrel cant be anodized because its steel, and I think Id want...

Re: My classic Spyder

Obviously the old paint doesnt help the looks. Im probably going to try to do a more durable paintjob, since I dont think I want to permanently anodize the old body. If you add up the current eBay...
