Spyder Rodeo (Safety issue?)

ok, well i'm the kind of person who takes things apart just to see how everything ticks...
this is good and bad in the long run;
good: i can field strip my entire marker, clean it, and put it back together in under one minute (preety good i s'pose)...
bad: i took the safety out, and the ball berring/spring it sits on fell out, and i can't find them...

i still have the safety, but nothing to keep it in....
i've e-mailed kingman about this problem, but they won't respond to me...

does anybody know where i could get these parts?
does anybody here have them?

Hardware store is your best bet.

Or if you have an old mag/sheridan frame laying around you could probably snag the bearing and spring from one of them.

But the best solution yet is to take a tank o-ring and cut a small chunk of it and slide that in place of the spring/o-ring(you may need to trim it to the correct size). It'll work just fine...in fact ive received several guns with this little mod done to them.

that will work?

i'm talking about the spring/ball berring that keeps the safety from falling out of the marker...

the ball berring sits on top of the spring to allow the safety to be switched...

where would i get a spring this size?...would a hardware store really make something that small?

and the ball berring would be a pain to get my hands on...



do you think if i e-mailed kingman again they'd reply?



(for the record i only own a spyder rodeo...)
(well, i own two old black maxx's, but they are only used in reserve)

Vm68.com has bearings the proper size (in Sheridan parts), and it may be possible to find those springs in hardware stores. The piece of O-ring is the most common replacement, though.

Only safety I trust is sitting 4 feet above my ***. (That and a barrel condom)

Keep that in mind, and don't worry about the little metal bit.

i looked at the sheridan parts piece (great find btw)...
are you sure they will fit my safety?....
second: do you know the size of the spring for the safety?...


i wanna get the exact idea of what i need before i get it, so i don't screw anything halfway to hell in my marker...

For the spring go buy a disposable lighter. Take the spring out of it. (The one that holds the flint to the wheel)

edit- just noticed how old this thread is...
