well i've got those frames, you'd probably need to mill the mech frame down flat like the VS are. I'll take some measurements and pictures and see what we got.

edit:
frame side by side

VS2 height 3/32'

mech depth, from the low point its the same, I think you could have it milled flat and it would fit perfect.


and heres the VS2 body 1/8"

Thanks for the help ! Always thought it would make a great semi operating at 220 psi. For all those years we tried to tune down a (Low Pressure) Spyder..

Might be easier to adapt the VS internals to an existing mech spyder. Add your choice of regulator and asa (really, that bottom line reg on the VS series wasn't all that great to begin with) and you'll be all set.

this always been my choice, you need to plug the classic bodies relief hole, and drill 3 smaller ones further down for proper cycling.

Has that been done before? How about putting a mechanical sear on the vs2 frame.?

Is a older mechanical SPYDER marker like. Elite . Compact. Doable? I'm more a fan of the single trigger frame Spyders.

I do have a older imagine body after comparing frames to vs2. They do pretty much look the same . Minus the three smaller holes on the vs2. I might just go that route. Just need to get a single trigger frame...

I'd start there, as long as your body is a slim striker the balance valve will fit,

this is what your working with, looks like the sear pin lines up and the VS grip screw hole is the old mech trigger hole. so you could possibly get another stop pin in the area above the noid. Theres a bit more meat on the VS you might have to trim down with a dremmel and file and i could see this working.


The VS trigger pin is smaller and a hair higher, so I don't see using that spot easy, plus you would need to move the sear pin forward and hope the balance valve cycles. since from my understanding frame foward mods don't agree with this valve.

One more question...Is the trigger frame that's on the opus .50 the same as regular .68 spyders? If so will these frames work with the older body styles like 03 imagine. 05 sonic etc?

I dont' mess with the .50cal crap, I can't speak for the newer stuff than '12 stuff, but even when the 08 electra came out the mechs stayed with a round tube frame and stayed the same
