Indeed spyder.

Something to consider though, a thick walled spyder barrel may not fit well. I had to modify the CP I bought for it to fit correctly.

I've got a picture I'll post when I'm home.


I took mine out to Skirmish for their D-Day last year. 2 days of play, I got around 80-90 hits on people (on 487 paintballs fired). To many of those people didn't call out however.

To be fair though, I honestly think I got around 40 surrenders, just by running up on bunkers. At one point, I took a bunker that had 4 people in it, the bow wasn't even drawn, and I yelled SURRENDER! All four gave up. Then, they realized what I was shooting and started kicking themselves.


Such great fun, but I'm having same velocity issues. Around 220 FPS on a 60 pound draw. (I shorted the length, cause my weak little arms can't pull it back all the way. I'm only 120 lbs!)

Rover- try using a first strike with yours if you get the chance. Mine HATED them, but the theory of the shot is sound, so could be amazing... Ant the breach fits a first strike with no modding...

I can't justify the price! First strike rounds are a mythical fable around where I live, I can't find them in store and I am not paying to get them shipped in!

What I've settled on is just shooting from closer, it fits with the whole Bow-motif I had going on. (And I quickly learned to pick up a pistol for backup when you've got people that learn the way to beat you. Running at you.)

Hey, has anyone else had a problem with the plunger knocking the compression chamber forwards? I picked up a used one and it seems that the adhesive that held the top block gave out, causing it to jolt backwards.

Did you resize it Bullseye?

also, I SAW YOU! hah hah. I remember seeing you at Skirmish last year, I was lugging the bow-gun around.


If you don't have the plunger-size set right for your reach, it can 'knock' against the end of the tube, and fire that piece right off. I did it once with a used one, before I rebought a new arrow and cut it to right size.
