Exclamation Want t oupgrade my old spyder Xtra (original) should I do it or is not worth my time.

Alright I am in the market for either a new gun ( I was thinking a G3 or Mini) for tournament play or I also have an old xtra here laying around and wouldn't mind dumping some money into to make it a decent tourney marker. So far i have come up with the following ups:

-Rocking Trigger
-Drop-Foreward w/ On/Off
-Clamping Feedneck
-New Expansion Chamber or New block with reg(only prb is I cant find any blocks except for ebay and I hate ebay)
-Macro Line Kit
-New Bolt
-Eyes (if possible)

So help me out and let me know if it would be worth it.

it'd be easier and probably cheaper in the long run just buy an 08 or 09 pilot/electra.

Well the thing is if i am going to buy another gun I would want a Mini or a G3, the question here is can I mod my xtra to be better or equal the quality of the G3 or mini for less through moding.

not really. youre looking at at least $100 to go LP, plus all the other stuff you want. just save up and pick up a mini for $200 if thats what you want.
