name this spyder

Guy I work with has this. Says it's from way back in the day. Seems different than most spyder markers- the bolt goes back by itself when gassed up. Also seems to fire more smoothly than other spyders. I was thinking maybe they operated differently back then. I can buy it for $50. Is it rare or should I let it pass?

I have no idea, maybe an AKA? It is definitely rare. Can you get a pic of the other side? That is hella hot though! I am sure it is worth the $50 AT A MINIMUM. Great Ano, great milling, DYE ss? I would buy it in a heartbeat.

I think it was called a "Joker", and there were several different models.

Its called a joker ace i believe. they ceased production on these years ago.

The body milling is basically a knockoff of the westwood body milling which was highly sought after.

never really see these come up for sale so i cant comment on what they go for but 50 bucks sounds good to me.

I might scoop it up then but last time we played it was acting up. I think it is the velocity spring though, the one in there is very old and tired.

I have a couple of early Spyder's. I have a first generation that doesn't have provisions for the Volumizer and my second gen does. No matter what they both have the "cocking bolt" on the left side of the gun not on the top.

That is a sweet looking marker, if I could get it for only $50 I'd pick it up just to tinker around with.

It was made by Diamond Labs and sold under the "Diablo" name.
Quality was questionable.

There were 3 levels of Joker. Basic, STP and Ace.

I had one for a bit. Valve assmbly loaded from the front where the air line goes in.
