It should be the same as my Piranha USP pistol. 20 good shots as long as you don't try to hammer them out as a rope. It needs time for the 12'ie to warm between shots. One or two is fine but if you try a 5 shot burst the 4th and 5th will be noticably slower. But even a few seconds between shots is enough.

Yeah i'm not gonna try to be throwin ropes with this thing. It'll be for extreme situations when I am either reloading paint, out of air, or just need to throw a gun at someone to knock them out so I can reload real leisurely like. So basically, it's a backup sidearm, not my primary. I have a Splatty to run as a primary pistol if need be.

Ok, so here's the update with a few more additions. I found some nice grips that would work so I didn't have to make my own. I still need to hollow out part of the grips, but that's a quick job for the dremel. A rear cocking bolt from a cocker, although I'm gonna get something other than blue for the pull cap. I sanded down the trigger some more, then I closed off the side bolt opening with an old top dovetail rail from another old spyder, then put another on top to work with the feedtube i'm gonna set up. Lastly, i gotta get my air fittings. The local shop is still out, so i've gotta wait for those. It should be done within the week though. I'll have her up and running completely by next weekend.
Here are the links for the pics:

I included an open shot of the grip for railgun to take a look at. Tell me what you think of it so far. I'm proud of it!

That's looking pretty good now, really feeling those grips ..

I'd look into getting a CCI bucket changer though, it'll sit a little tighter to the bottom of the grip frame and they come out a LOT faster than the BE ones do.

If you'd rather have one of my adapters, just yell, your welcome to them.

It's shaping up now. A little nicer cocker rod, some guerilla glue, a few fitting and she's done.

I gotta get mine done now.

I've got one of those adaptors. That's what i was trying first but i didn't have a fitting to attach the macroline adaptor. It would work with steel braided hose if you had a piece in the size you needed.

It looks great so far Ganon!

Does that feedneck come off with those screws I see? it should be possible to set up a mount for a PTX/Delta type mag. If you cut one of those down to eight rounds extending backwards it should be the right length to match the gun, it'll be a nice little surprise for those who get too close!!!

The screws are the holders for the ball detent plate, but I am gonna be cutting the feedneck down for a magazine, just not sure what kind yet. Here are the updated pics of how it is lookin at the moment:

Pics 1 and 2 are just the gun with no grips, the 3rd pic is a closeup of the fittings. I've still gotta sand down the wood grips to go around the 12gram, then fix my feedneck, and BAM! SPYDARM! I should have everything but the final magazine setup done by this weekend. It's at least in firing mode now, although I havent tried it yet because it's 10:30 pm and the neighbors might hate me in the morning.
