Default 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, Draguns, etc copies of the Spyder design)? What models were released in what years? I have my gun posted on the pictures page, and a post titled "my classic spyder", can anyone tell me what years it was possibly made in?

Thanks

Chris Placzek

Didn't Spyder take it's initial design from Pirhanna or PMI or something like that?

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 when Kingman switched over to the slim striker, but I dont know of any variations in the fat body models, except for my friends which just has a fatter powerfeed. Oh wait there were black ones I think.

As far as I know Spyder was the original and Piranha and Brass Eagle copied the Spyder design. That is way if you're looking for parts for alot of guns, you will find they are spyder parts.
