pick your manual http://www.spyder.tv/section/support...s_manuals.html

where's the diagram that came with it? make sure you have the proper allen wrenches to take the grip frame off the marker body.

degas your marker. Look at the back. In between the top and bottom tube is a pin that goes through the center of them...from left to right side. Remove the pin but be careful, everything's under spring tension. Remove the back-plate. pyll the bolt back and out of the marker. It's connected to the striker (hammer) in the bottom tube. Oil all the Orings you see and reassemble in the reversed order it came apart.

you turn the knob in for a higher velocity, out for lower.

and dry firing your marker is perfectly 100% ok

Make sure you are not using a petroleum based oil for your o-rings. Clean and lube often and you will not have many mechanical issues. Dry firing is just extra wear and tear on your gun but should not hurt it too much.

speaking of o rings. i oil mine before and after i use the marker. yet this last time when i took it apart afterwards one of the rings was really loose. I use C02 chich i understand can freeze o rings if you shoot too fast. i never shoot fast as i play sniper style woods and havent used it in speedball yet. anyways its on that vertical adapter behind the low pressere chamber, theres 2 inline orings, its the one towards the back of the marker. its an #015 80D o ring according to the diagram.

I'm confused cuz cold makes things contract, not expand. so why did the oring expand and get so loose it wouldnt stay on and had to replace it.

The CO2 can penatrate the o ring and modify its chemical structure causing it to swell.
You are using Marker oil right? Regular oils will swell o rings too.
