It depends on the gun. Tolerances vary from gun to gun, so each will be different. I'd assume that the 500psi would be about right, as that's about what a Spyder actually uses. It might be a bit more, but that all depends on the marker itself.

Sometimes, it depends on if the stock striker has issues. The tolerances in Spyders aren't good enough, so sometimes the stock strikers are fine, but sometimes they aren't.

I'm assuming that you're referring to the camo-like acid-wash that some Rodeo's have, right? Don't think so, but if I were you I'd pick something like gloss black and pick up those kind of parts for accents when you decide to upgrade, as that would look good on the Rodeo.

Hmmm, I'll look into this for you, but off the top of my head www.whitewolfairsmithing.com and www.docsmachine.com are the only two that might do it.
