I've gotten conflicting info, so I thought I'd post and ask the question. Sorry if this is a repeat!
I have an original Spyder Shutter Java edition that I took to the field this past weekend, expecting to use my trusty co2 setup. The gun is all stock, and I have used co2 since I first bought the gun new. I have cleaned and lubed the gun after every use and all the seals look functional.
At the field I ran out of Co2 and expected that the "new" (to me) HPA would just "work". Sadly I was mistaken. When hooked up to HPA I got the machine gun effect similar to when the fill on CO2 gets low. The tank was fully screwed in and I did not hear any escaping air that would indicate a bad seal
Asked around at the field; No one at the field even recognized the Shutter, (I kept getting "What kind of gun is that?"
) finally someone suggested springs, another that the valve may only work on co2 and cant "handle" HPA
I poked around for suggestions on the net, but no conclusive answers as to a solution, nor any ready supply of parts that I was confident enough to spend the cash on without knowing if they'd work.
I don't want to give up on my old favorite, so if any of you who have experienced the same issue with a similar gun, and could share mods/ideas for running HPA that would be awesome! thanks!
