my colletction thus far

over that last few years, maybe 5 or so, I have been buying spyders that were destroyed and bringing them back to life. fully stock and fully functional.
I like the whole process of researching, BST, cleaning, repairing, and assembly. the older I got, the more patience I had. I will post up pictures a little later today.

let me know if there is anything that is not correct to the marker and model.

1st is the grey bodies. i have always had a soft spot for them and even now, im not quite sure why i like them so much.

Spyder Elite

dont know much about the elite. It has a weird front block with no provisions for a volumizer, front grip, or reg / expansion chamber.


Spyder One

The 1st of the classic "grey bodied" spyders?


older styleSpyder

The only model to come with the "choker screw". old style wide feed neck.


newer style Spyder

identical to the one above, just a little newer. skinny feed neck.


Spyder 2000

a unique rear cocking bolt. not sure if any others had a rear cocking bolt like this one.


TASO Spyder

older style spyder with a taso kit. new grip frame and grip, new expansion chamber, shark gill sight rail. dont know about the volumizer or barrel.


In Question

I have no idea whats going on with this one... never seen the shark fin rear end like that before. it has been converted to rear cocking with a quick release, though it still has the holes for a tool style velocity cap.


Spyder compact "A"?

i believe this is a compact A... im not quite sure. it has the front block screws on the side of the body.


My first Spyder

thiw was my 1st spyder from back in the day. played at JackFrost in PA with this one as well as countless back yards and other fields.


modified my 1st Spyder

i liked my 1st spyder so much that i later went out and got the same one just to modify it to what i always wanted it to be. every once and a while, ill put my rotor R2 and ninja slp tank on it and rip a little. though it dosent really "rip" like the newer markers do. lol its still fun to bring out and play with.

EM-1 Java




BoB Long Millennium



Spyder Electra with rocking trigger

only the VS2 and the Electra had the rocking trigger; along with the newer Spyder RT


Spyder pilot ACS



Spyder Fenix ACS



Spyder Imagine Digital LED

very similar to the imagine though this only came in black with a straight trigger and a different board.


Spyder Compact Deluxe JAVA

I don't think this one ever went through even a hopper of paint. the inside is immaculate.


Spyder E77

here's one you don't see that often; if ever. it was a concept I believe and never put into production (or maybe limited production run).


Spyder E88

another one that is hardly ever seen. similar situation.


Spyder E99 AVANT

one we are all familiar with though, the avant comes in a flat black with a plastic feed neck that I can never seem to find in tact.


Spyder Flash LCD

like the normal flash but with an lcd display


Spyder AMG Classic

the 1st of the AMG duo.


Spyder Sonix Pro

I like it for its vertical trigger frame. the only one of the Spyders to do this.


Spyder Sport

the only spyder to have a composite body with removable metal inserts.


Spyder compact SE

my all time favorite spyder. the only Spyder to have the straight hardline from grip to expansion chamber.


more to come
spyders sister company Raven
and
project markers

as rare as the E77 and E88 are, there was also a RASTA spyder. it was allot like the xtra or the or the TL

i put together as close of a representation as i could.

Spyder TL-R'asta

i have come close to finishing it and it just needs a few little bits.



Spyder Hammer



Projects and what not

i dont know where im going with this one. right now, it just has some random pieces on it.


Spyder Electra with eyes

i believe this was the 1st spyder to have break beam eyes. still missing the stock barrel. if anyone has one, pm me.


Spyder Compact 2.0

i have always regretted selling this one. its what the SE could have been. it was super clean and shot really nice.


Spyder VS2 in RS body

my vs2 that i used to play with, somehow wound up in an RS body. had everything in the kit to replace any part that may break. pretty much another vs2 that was disassembled along with some tools and rings.


BoB Log G6R oled

what i actually play with now. quite a step up from the vs2. pillow bolt, zero ping ram, low pressure poppet, freak barrel kit, 4C laser eyes, slp reg, sl tank, and an r2.

Nice, I'd like to get a few more spyders myself. I only have one that I picked up recently for nostalgia. It was the first spyder I ever owned. Would also like to make a spump in the future.

Your Walmart has Spyders on the shelf!
Jealous!

I only have pellet and lead guns at my wally world.

I picked up an EM1 not long ago. Always fun having a little piece of history, makes fun conversations on the field.
