all o-rings are tank sized
the striker needs to be the red softer style
and for cup seals, lapco's are softer than kingman's so they provide a better seal longer.

I have a 2004 ,2/2003 Spyder Imagine's All 3 Rebuilt from ground up and not gonna lie the Biggest Thing when it comes to Accuracy is the Volumizer and the barrel . I have a a Smart-parts .689 Barrel 16 inch and its Damn accurate . I would Check what Size barrel Bore your using and what size paint balls and would recommend using a Spyder VS3 low Pressure Volumizer (its worked better then any after market one ive bought) and a Shocktech or Hush Bolt.

Not all barrels have orings on them. From my experience spyder barrels usually do have a oring to provide a larger amount of friction to stop the barrel from unscrewing itself during play. They can unscrew themselves because of the loose tolerances all around the entire marker and forces caused by the markers cycling.

A simple tank oring stretched over the threads may work for a while, but may need replacing more often.

An aftermarket reservoir/volumizer isn't any different than the stock kingman ones. Only a few brands actually changed the inside volume from kingman's products, everyone else just changed the visual aesthetics.

Instead of a Low Pressure Volumizer, I'm pretty sure you mean a regulator that outputs a relatively low pressure compared to the older 800psi spyders. The regulator will allow for a better adjustment of the pressure on the paintball and the overall fps.

Except for the orings for the air line and the striker, pretty sure everything is tank oring sized.

Then it's definitely your air system. You probably need to do a maintenance on your regulator. Or your regulator doesn't output a high enough pressure to cycle your spyder fully.

Is the regulator the front grip where you hold on to it?

Correct, although I just realized that if it is the stock grip/expansion chamber, then it wouldn't need any maintenance because it's empty to allow any liquid CO2 to fully expand into a gas. Check anyway.

Do you have the stainless steel braided hose for your airline? If so, make sure there aren't any major kinks in it as that can prevent the flow of air.

Are you using Compressed Air/N2 or CO2? Either way, I would check you tank checked out to make sure that there are no issues with the tank's output pressure.


Also, check to make sure the valve is facing the correct way (larger hole towards the barrel, smaller hole towards the striker). If it isn't, then that will restrict your airflow greatly.

The sear is what holds the striker/hammer back when its cocked back. When you pull the trigger, one end of the sear is tilted up resulting in the lowering of the other side. In doing so, the striker is released and results in the cycling of the marker. Not too sure what that has to do with poor fps, but I don't have your marker infront of me.
