Thanks Johnny, I'll keep it in mind. I've got a Maddmann spring kit and WGP black magic reg kicking around that I'm going to try out. Will be a fun winter project.

I always had a problem with Spyder triggers. Too mushy, too much over-travel in both directions. I used to change out the trigger return springs with something softer, and place a trigger travel stop in the spring.

The trigger stop inside the spring is a good one.

Just scored a 32 degrees LP valve on e-bay for $5 so that might be fun to play with.

I'll keep in mind the trigger stop. Is that for pre-travel or overtravel?

Over-travel.

Nice! Those valves were actually just as good as most of the other valves available at the time so that's a nice little score.

For pre-travel you can install a set screw vertically in the trigger frame. A trigger job can make a huge difference. Otter's website is still a great resource for this kind of thing.

Awesome, glad to hear it's a good valve. Any idea how low of pressure I can get down to reliably? I'm looking at picking up a cheap SP Maxflow but they max out at 300psi...

300psi is pretty low for a blowback to recock reliably, can you put shims in the maxflo to push it up a bit? IIRC there were high pressure maxflos around at some point.

Yeah, there were some HP maxlows but they are pretty rare. I'm trying to get a line on an HP tank reg version that might work on the spyder. If not I'll go the PPS female stab route. Honestly the vertical reg might work fine, seems like there is a lot of volume with the factory volumizer they came with and the stock vertical foregrip is mostly just a sleeve around the hose and doesn't have much volume to speak of.

I'm thinking that a female Stabilizer would require the fewest additional parts, outside of the MaxFlo you already have. But I also think you probably need a balance valve to run reliably under 300psi in a Spyder in order to utilize your MaxFlo.

Some have done it. Few I have heard using the Turbo valve. Don't get me wrong, the valve you got is great for a Spyder, just not usually sub-300psi great.
