Thanks for the grip info! To answer your question, I have no real reason. I've never "improved" a sypder or clone, and thought it might be a fun direction to go with a build. Plus, the initial marker is going to be a gift for my nephew. I think he might like having something a little different from everyone else's marker.
18 March 2008 - 12:10 PMIf you are interested, I am nearly complete with my conversion of my MR1 to low pressure (CO2) and plan to share with the rest of the Spyder forum when I'm done.
I am very interested in this. I'm glad to see that the spyder valves are co2 compatible.
I don't know much about the MR1, but I read something about not being able to mount a volumizer or a regulator on it. Is this true? did you have to get creative or fabricate someway of doing this, or is my info false?

I was planning on giving it to my nephew as a starter marker, but I want something that is upgradeable. Ideally I'd like something that can be built into a LP setup.
I guess I'll keep looking for something to build up.
18 March 2008 - 11:35 AMThank you! Cup Seal! Thats the part I was thinking of. Talk about a brain hiccup.
The bolt is an AKA lightning bolt, and the o-rings are pretty gross looking. They're almost as old as the marker.
I guess I'm taking the marker apart to get at the valve. Now I have to decide if I'm putting the stock valve back in, or replacing it with something else.
18 March 2008 - 09:25 AMThats what I thought. Not oiling the small black O-ring seemed like a bad idea.
