Yes, I was hoping that people would list them in order of which ones I should get first (1 to 10) so that i could start upgrading while i play.

Thanks

ProX - That is where i was going to get the CCM feedneck, but thanks anyways

Forgot to mention you can pick up an adapter and feed neck from Sundragon.

A good fast loader will do wonders for it too.

The hopper and CCM Sundragon feedneck are both on there, so.....

Thanks

If you are content to stay with CO2, then I'd highly suggest running a regulator. It regulates the tank output pressure to a stable level. CO2's pressure fluctuates both up and down with rate of fire and temperature. If the temp goes up, so does the pressure in the tank and consequently your velocity. It can also "spike" when liquid CO2 gets into your gun and expands causing a rapid pressure increase. With CO2 compatible reg, this will go away. The problem is that there are few CO2 friendly regs out there and the ones that are, are kinda pricey, making a very good argument for HPA.

What a regulator wont fix is a drop in tank pressure due to high rates of fire or low temps. With most Spyders requiring around 800psi to operate properly, a CO2 tank could loose enough pressure to cause cycling problems in a hurry. The only way to fix this is lower the operating pressure- think low pressure conversion. Bottom line - If HPA is available, it is a better option unless you really want to tinker.

Thanks... What are high and low buck ratings?! *confused looking face*

Are they rated 1 - 10 ... 1 being highest or 10 being highest... I notice a lack of threes...

My ratings based on how much money you are willing to throw around. If you are poor, go with the red ones. If you are feeling pretty rich, go with the other.
