Default Spyder Warranty cover eyes?

Okay so yeah i got this gun about 3 months ago and its great but, I have noticed that the first time I took the eye panels off and cleaned the eyes that all of my wires were pinched and practically coming apart. I was just wondering if eyes are covered in the warranty so I can send my vs2 back in to get working eyes??And another thing, what if I have taken the stock feedneck off and put another one on, would my gun still be able to be fixed by the waranty?

I doubt the feedneck would make a difference unless you were trying to get warranty work on it. Call Kingman concerning the eye probs. They're the only ones that can give you that info -

Why are everyone's eyes dying at once?

His eyes did not die, the wire was pinched. I think a lot of people don't realize that if you get broken paint on the eyes, they need to be properly cleaned. When you put the wire back in it needs to be properly placed in the channel or the wire can be pinched and deformed when tightening the cover down -

EDIT: Just took mine apart and assess that if they made the wire channel in the body and cover a little wider, the pinching prob might be less likely -

dont waste your money having someone else install the eyes. its really easy.
just take your trigger frame off and open it up. unplug the old eyes from the board in the grip and unscrew the eye covers. remove the eyes from the body, and pull the eye wire through the top of the trigger frame. take the new eyes, run the wire in through the top of the trigger frame into it (where you pulled the old wire out of) plug it into the board and then insert the eyes into the body and reattach the trigger frame to the body. finally put the eye covers back on, and make sure the wire doesnt get pinched. turn on your gun and test the eyes. to do this, cock your bolt (you can do this with no air and no paint) turn the eyes on, if the gun doesnt fire then the eyes are working. if the gun does fire then the eyes are not working.

Hope that helped

That wasn't really my point. I just find it kind of interesting that within the last day or two like 5 threads about eye problems have popped up.

When you're down to the end of eye installation right before you put on the eye covers, make sure to adjust the wires so they end up in the groove. I don't know how else to describe it, but fiddle with it some before cinching the eye covers down.
