AKA upgraded Spyder One- Appraisal/Info

Hey guys, I got this in a local lot, any idea of worth? Or better just to keep for historical purposes?
From the packaging in the duffle bag this appears to have a Mitey Max LPR, Lightning bolt, AKA beavertail, and low pressure valve.
Any info would be appreciated, thanks




Edit: The ASA says "Lab" on it which I presume means Diamond Labs. The frame has no markings but one member has guessed it is an early model Benchmark.

Edit: Pulled the valve (right one) compared to the left one which was in the parts box. I have old tube in the bag that says AKA Tornado Spyder valve but I thought those had different cupseals?

No wording on the valve that I can see. Valve faces here:

Anything AKA is top notch in paintball. Aside from the reg and possible internals, thats about as close as you can get to the AKA Black Widow.

there are some real nice OG spyders on ebay for $150 range.

my guess is $20 (paypal has been sent and my address is listed in the notes) lol

id say anywhere from $100 to $200... maybe someone can narrow that down a little.

Thanks for the info! Your third line is really confusing though, think it was a wrong copy/paste?

Perhaps ebay will be the best route, if I could get a good starting price!

Open it up and confirm the internals. That is where your value really lies.

I can't be sure but it definitely looks like a full on black widow spyder. Those oblong dimples on the lower tube are definitely not stock spyder and the APP grips were a signature of AKA. Probably worth a pretty nice little chunk of change.

Standard Spyder One body with what could be a Diamond Labs frame. As it sits I'd put it at $175. If you can verify the valve is an AKA valve, add another $50. With an AKA valve, it would sell in a hurry for $225.

Have you a barrel for it? Anything else come with it?

Well I know it is a Spyder One body because the bag it came in had a receipt for the body, so not a full on Black Widow.
There was a single trigger frame in the bag too which I assume was swapped out for the double trigger; is there a way to find out for sure if it is a Diamond Labs frame?
I'm pretty sure it is an AKA valve as there is a stock valve in the spare parts box. I will confirm when I get home tonight and post pics.

For barrels I believe there is a lapco and a Dye UL actually
