My assault block is mine! "HISSSSSS"

I got lucky with a cheap fenix that had an assault block and a ccm reg. Although the ebay finds have a been a little dry lately. A bunch of EM1's though popped up.

If the Dirtyworks millennium blocks fit that is a fantastic option.

Hahaha, yes and no... it got him to PM me though, and I shared some leads

Yep, ebay and Goodwill seem to be the better sources lately though you most likely will have to buy a full marker or lot.

Shout to DavidBoren for confusing me even more with 47 springs!
Jk jk!

Thank you so much, man! It’s almost looking like a real marker!

Talked to Steve and I think it’s been determined that I still need:

Striker (slim, I think)
Velocity Regulator
Pin
And oh, ykno, a barrel...

Anyone have this stuff around?

Speaking of pins... your Gothic body looks like it is missing the dowel pin that sits behind the valve. Newer Spyders don't use it, so it's probably not that important, other than venting your blowback gas to atmosphere if it's missing.

I believe it's purpose is to isolate the valve from the impact of the striker, but I don't know for sure. Maybe just to give a positive stop to sit the valve against so lining up the screw in the bottom is easier?

Either way, I don't see it in the picture of your body.

....................

The longest springs in the spring kit are the striker springs. Three various color coded tensions.

It has three medium sized springs, of color coded various tensions. And three short springs, also color coded. These are all valve springs. There are different valve springs for different models, this kit covers both variations.

You will only need one striker spring and one valve spring installed in the marker at a time. The extras are so you can tune it as desired.

Go to the hardware store for the pin - you're looking for a "quarter pin" that slides freely into the hole, so probably 4mm. Maybe it's 5/32 or something similar. Put the dented end in last then tap to set.

You need stiker, velocity adjuster, velocity adjuster pin, and the valve pin. I circled all in the picture. As you saw before, it happens to look like penis.

Don't forget the bumper as well. Otherwise you WILL destroy the gun.

If you're planning on running that frame, you might want to look into dye sticky grips. A few places have the spyder compatible sets kicking around for next to nothing.

Ya that pin takes the brunt of the force on the valve from the striker. The, usually brass, retainer screw can get deformed or the valve itself can develop burrs where the screw sits. That pin just keeps the valve moving and from placing unneeded stress on the screw.

I think I have a spare striker, pm me
