2000 Custom Spyder Imagine

Ok, so I finally decided to post my almost completed Spyder Imagine on here. It started as a completely stock Spyder Imagine. This was just a side project for when I got bored, If I have time I will go into more depth about the modifications done to it but for now I'm going to keep it simple.

To start it is a 2000 era Spyder Imagine and mods are as follows:

Custom milled upper
Custom drilled and tapped receiver to slide trgger frame forward
Custom modified hammer to function with trigger frame in the forward position

Drilled and tapped grip to accept a standard on/off or asa
CP regulator
CP on/off
15* front block
32* pressure gauge
Freak barrel with 12" front
Metal feed neck (forgot brand)
Torpedo velocity adjuster
Custom snatch grip (bottle opener dremeled)
Dye sticky grips
32* venturi bolt
32* Spring kit
Aftermarket trigger (forgot brand)
Low pressure valve kit (I think, I can't remember for sure but I'm buying another valve soon anyways.)

The gun fires flawlessly and has a much better feel since the position of the grip frame has been moved forward about an inch. It operates at around 400 psi but I need to do some tweaking with different springs. It is a very smooth shooter for a spyder.







A few older pictures before it was finished.

Holy crap that's a sick imagine. I've got one sitting in the closet but only mods are acs bolt and low rise locking feedneck. Super fun guns to mess around with

It is a bottle opener. I was going to buy a snatch grip off eBay for a shocker next and customize it to fit but it was 20 bucks. I had this sitting around so I cut it to fit. I should have left it in functioning condition, then I could still use it to open beer. The mod for the hammer is very simple. All you need to do is drill the hole all the way through the hammer. I used a dremel and cut out a square hole for the bolt to attach to. The hole needs to be in the same location as the original hole it just needs to be on the opposite side. Then you need to make a new sear engagement on the side that you drilled the new hole. This will not be in the same location as the original sear engagement. It needs to compensate for the change in position of the grip. So you need to eyeball it and see where you need to dremel the sear engagement. Also, if you are modifying the body of your spyder. Do not use a dremel on it. It turns out chopped up looking and will not look right. Use simple metal files that you can get at Walmart or home depot. It will leave a much better looking finish in the end.
