Ok so I was out playing today. I had a great time, and I've never had any major problems with this marker (I got it about 5 years ago, it's my first and only marker), but today I noticed that I was having some accuracy issues. It seems like there was a lot of shots that i should be able to make, but the balls would not fly consistantly, and even once or twice they would bank left or right (and yes before you ask I was using hpa). This gun is getting pretty old, and considering it was my first marker I put it through some rough wear my first year or two, but I've never really had this problem before. What would fix this problem? I'm still using all stock, so any upgrades you guys think are good would be a great help. Although my problem could be that this field was giving us crappy paint (the field made us use their paint, and the box even said on it "reccomended use: practice"). Anyway, any help you guys can offer would be great.

Generally speaking, Spyders are decent little pea shooters. 5 years is a long time not to change parts though. I'd start with a complete spring kit from Maddman: http://www.maddmanpr...pring_Kits.html

...and if there's a CO2 screen present [either in the ASA or the VA], remove it.

An ORing kit is a good idea as well: http://www.theoringstore.com/servlet/the-1...sh-rings/Detail

...but I like this one better because it has cup seals included: http://www.amazon.com/Kingman-SPYDER-O-RIN...L/dp/B000WSHQQG

If you are using a stock barrel, perhaps a new one of smaller bore [old bores were .695 or .697 and paint has been getting smaller]...something like a J&J Ceramic: http://www.allpaintballsupplies.com/j-j-ce...source=googleps

Wild curving is usually a sign of too high of velocity. Did you chrono before playing?
