Now that I noticed the rear cocking ttid bit.. You can get a long style bolt, and cut off the top half od the rear cap.. I cut mine off, just so I could see the SP symbol smashing back and forth in my marker.

I'm still confused on your cotter pin Q, You want to be able to pull the pin, and leave the striker in the marker, and pull the bolt? Or are you just asking about an aftermarket pin with a button type lock, and no cotter pin? I just got an after market type puch pin from a mcb member on here, so I know they exist if thats what your asking.

Instead of proposing solutions only, I will outline some 'issues' I have and maybe someone can lend their opinion.

#1 - People have gotten their fingers pinched by the bolt when they cock the marker (on the field, if the bolt does not re-cock fully) and it slips on them. I really like the JAM bolt, so I would like to convert it to top cocking. Is there any way to mill a slot in the top of the body and use a longer hammer pin so it extends out the top of the body? Maybe even make it be able to slide out so you can remove the bolt?

its possible. you'd need to drill a few holes and tap some stuff if you want to use a removable cocking pin though


#2 - I don't like the cotter pin setup it currently has to remove the lower internals. Can a Cocker bolt pin work or be made to work? I am thinking that you might be able to open up both the hole in the body and the groove in the rear cap and use a spring loaded bolt pin.

it should. i believe i have a pre2k pin on one of my spyders right now


#3 - Trigger work. Is there any way to make the trigger a bit lighter/snappier? Or is this just playing around with trigger springs and stops?

springs and stops. maddmann used to sell some nice mech trigger springs


#4 - With regards to the front block and 'volumizer', is there any benefit to using a larger chamber? The one it has was taken from a VS1 or 2 as it was all I had.

not if youre running a reg


#5 - There recently have been Type-R markers and parts put up for sale (Member's BST). Would using that nice valve be advantageous over the stock valve? Or is there another 'must have' valve for Spyders? I am not neccesarily looking for low pressure. The gun will be regulated using an AA Vigilante (I have springs to make it LP or HP) and I will be using a loop of stainless steel hose after the bottomline ASA. This marker will have to run well on CO2.

not really. it should be the same as a spyder valve. all a valve is going to do is increase your fps.

#6 - I need a safety for the Bob Long frame. Can I purchase this somewhere, or can a standard Spyder safety be made to work?
no idea on that last one, im looking for one for my Dye frame

I primarily just want a pull pin with spring loaded bearings. I know I can't remove the bolt without the striker (unless I have a removable bolt like the Azodin guns), but I would prefer it over the cotter pin.

Definitely interested. Any chance of pictures (even stock ones) so I can take a look at the design?

Note you can flip that cocking pin to either side to accommodate to a lefty or a righty.

Wow, very nice. Does it operate on a similar principle as the JAM bolts (spring inside a sleeve thing)? I would like to take this it your offer still stands.

I think so.. I'm not familiar with the Jam Bolt, but yes it is a outer Derlin sleeve, with a spring loaded center. Here's a pic of it today.. It is a little dirty from being in my tool box over the last year.

PM me your address, and I'll see what it'll cost me to send it your way.

I've honestly probably only shot about a hopper and a half with this, than I got the supa fly one.



You may want to further break it in, using the various methods I learned from Druid, because I only left mine compressed for 4 days.

I'll check postage prices tomorrow at the PO... Contact Sean_Chip for a quick Strip pin.. I just saw his thread I got mine from still has them listed. He may have more.

Thank you. I sent him a PM.

That makes #1 and #2 taken care of. #3 I will look into further once have time. #4 is irrelevant now.

That leaves #5 and #6. I am wondering if there is a valve that is worth dropping in that would benefit CO2 use over the stock valve? Or at the very least be more robust/reliable.

Any idea on how to go about getting a safety? How different are Kingman frame safeties?
