Question where does the spump weigh in?

really thinking of making a spump (spyder pump) out of an old imagine or victor or something like that. but i was wondering from former or current spump owners how do they weigh in with the cocker/cci/ccm/empire style pumps? where are they as good and where do spumps tend to lag away from those types of pumps?

i thank you for your posting and your information.

They are basically the same and how they run will be dependent on how well you tune and select parts. It's basically the same setup an azodin, which is the same as a sniper. If you keep the blowback hammer then it might be similar to an mQ pump.

okay so whatcha saying is i could make a spyder pump and would most likely preform as good as a high end sniper depending on what bolt pump handle barrel etc i put on it?

Yes, but it would likely take more work since the parts are not designed for the spyder and the tuning could be a little trickier. I'm not that familiar with spyder frames so that could be an area of lack. Autotrigger might be tricky.

I don't know if I'd go so far as to say it would function like a high end sniper. It's gonna be hard to beat guns like CCMs that are made from scratch to be pumps and fitted together from the start. But you probably can get most of the way there.

And valve work, hammer crafting (very non-trivial modifications must be done if doing a 'proper' conversion), re-springing, valve chamber size alteration, regulation, and on and on.

You are, for all intents and purposes, building a gun. You're just using a block of metal that already has a few convenient holes drilled and tapped (barrel threads, feedneck, etc) so it saves you a lot of extra work.

So the performance potential is directly proportional to your own modification skills.

Seems like he could get the hammer, and the cupseal from Azodin.

I think you can find a 32 Degrees spyder valve for like $5 at some places.

But Furbarius is right, it's like your building your own gun!
