Spyder sonix upgrade ideas

I recently did a trigger job on my Sonix. I shaved down the metal parts that come in contact with the sear. I add a lighter spring to it and started to shave down the trigger itself to be more curved. It ia very light. And i can keep a atream of paintgoing for 10-15 second with one finger pulling as fast as i can. What else should i do to the gun?

you could buy a different valve but the newer ones really dont need it.

Derlin ACS bolt maybe if its compatible.

What metal parts did you shave?

Please post a pic of your modified trigger. If it looks good, I will mod my Sonix as well.

If you put a setscrew or a small piece of macroline or something of juuuust the right length through the forward trigger spring it will act as a rearward trigger stop.

I magnet-modded my trigger, try stretching out the sear spring a little, with air it will have a lighter pull.

I am going to give that light spring mod a try. I like the idea of a magnet but not sure how to do that one.

Are there aftermarket triggers available? The stock one kinda looks, well, stock.

if you can actually fire at a fast enough rate maybe get a revvy and if its compatible an acs bolt. also if you are using air a reg for better consistency is always good.

Anyone have the magnetic write up? I can't find it on here.

If the spring is to long, does it stop the marker from shooting?
