Well, in some rules, having two trigger contacs makes it illegal I think.

Really interesting to see that it comes stock 500 psi, maybe a future release will be lower than that, if they could hit 300 psi stock it'd be pretty sweet...

I mean, most spyders have the parts desgined so they'll run off a co2 tank with the correct velocity, so all they need do is change the valve/valve pin, the VA, and come stock without the venturi. All thats left then is to polish the internals, which I bet they could do.

UPDATE on operating pressure. I couldn't leave things alone with the operating pressure. Just had to see how low I could go and still have it functioning properly. I had an assault block laying around and the reg off my old LP Pilot so I put both on to see how low I could get it. The first thing I noticed was the valve pin looks just like the one that comes with the NDZ valve. Very encouraging. After putting things back together and airing up to 400psi I dry fired the gun and it recocked. 3 more dry fires- recocking on all. Hmmmmm. Dropped the psi to 350 and fired. It recocked. Rocked the the trigger not one miss. Time to put the paint in. Fired 4 rounds slowly. The gun never failed to recock. The velocity seemed a little harder than it was at the factory 500psi. Emptied the hopper and it never missed a lick. So with the addition of the assault block and the reg. it will function properly at 350psi. It may go lower but I ran out of air so I couldn't test anymore.

pbgrandpa...in my "stores #2" thread (3rd last topic at the bottom of the main page)...in there is a link to "Shooting Chrony Chronograph". That's the one I use because I also chrono hunting rounds for my buddy and speed trap my archery equipment. It works very well with paintball too

Did you try out the stock reg with the assault block?

No I didn't try the stock reg. The manual accutally said not to operate under 500psi. That was the main reason for not trying it. Druid thanks for the insight and I will definately look.

I see they have a refurbished unit. Think that one would be OK. I really would'nt want to spend alot on one.

I think it would be fine. Reburbed is normally shot/dented/goofed up casings (the red, steel box)...perhaps minor electronics...ribbon or something.

Nice review so far. One of the kids we play woodsball with had one last month. I didn't realize it until he was gone, so I didn't get to see it up close. Those that did raved about it, but we're just a bunch of hicks...
