Spyder compact recock issues

So like the title says, I'm working on a Spyder Classic that has some recocking issues. All the o-rings are good, oiled, sear/hammer are good, etc. Now, the wierd part is that the gun will recock just fine if I'm using a tank (HPA) that outputs higher than 900 PSI. Anything lower doesn't work. I have a 9 piece spring kit and have tried pretty much all the combos (except the stiffest valve spring) but to no avail. It seems to me like I would need either a lighter valve spring and/or a heavier drive spring right? IDK, were they set up so that they only work on CO2 or something?

I'd assume heavier drive spring would work. Or shim it just to see if that would solve your problem.

Yeah, it doesn't. I put in my heaviest drive spring and even with the lightest valve spring it doesn't work.

Edit: I just went back and literally tried every single spring combo possible and none of them worked with the tank I'm using (output is somewhere between 700 and 800 PSI). I'm going to call Kingman and ask about it, but they aren't picking up.

Thumbs up

Make sure all the air passages are clean & clear of all obstuctions. I have a Spyder classic that was having "Issues" till I removed the clogged brass filter in the ASA. Slim or fatty striker?

I think it's a slim...

I finally got ahold of Kingman's tech support, and they said that the older spyders use a slightly different sized hammer o-ring. And of course it's proprietary, and not made anymore.

The answer to your problem is get one of Alamo City Paintball's 1/2 delrin 1/2 Stainless hammers...eliminates the need for that odd sized o-ring

the o-rings are NOT hard to get. O-ring city carries whole rebuild kits with teflon impregnated striker o-rings. If nothing else, I can make you a rebuild kit for just one spyder and sell it to ya for $6 shipped. That would be 1 teflon coated hammer o-ring, 2 teflon coated bolt o-rings, 3 standard o-rings (for valve and front block). I have enough o-rings for 8-10 of these.
