What's the first thing you do...
 
What's the first thing you do when you get that brand new marker home?
That's right I tore it apart to see how it works.
I picked up a spyder victor II yesterday from the local shop
http://www.lehighvalleypaintball.com/
they are selling their rentals. 25.00 for just the gun and 50.00 for one with an hpa tank

I got it home and was test firing it and it would double fire and then flutter fire. I tore it down and checked it all out. It all looked good. I reassembled it and it works great. My guess is that the sear wasn't lined up properly.

Sounds like it.
A good stripping and cleaning on a new marker is always a fun thing!

Whenever I get a new gun I do several things. First, if I have some air, I shoot it at trees in my yard. If I don't have air, I just pump the gun (or just pull the trigger) and pretend to shoot it at people on TV. Yep, new guns are fun.

Open a fresh beer and christen her proper. Then oil and fire. :D

You did know how a spyder works before you striped it right?:D

Yes, that is a good idea. I also strip, clean, and lube new markers as soon as they get home. And then I too test fire them. It helps me determine if anything is wrong, and that I am familiar with the marker. Out on the field is the wrong place for your first “intimate” encounter with your new marker. ;)

Theres a first time for everything:)

Walking_Target 04-05-2006 06:01 PM

i would say i do the same thing...strip id down and lube it up, with two exceptions.


my Winchester Sedona... first thing i did was take the barrel off, put it on an engine lathe and make a sedona-spyder barrel adapter :D


and the PGP... not that i didn't want to, but i trust the previous owner, it came well lubed and i just haven't had the time yet.
