I think it's a Spyder clone. I can't remember any Spyder that has that color scheme. Certainly someone roaming around these boards will be able to identify the brand.

Looks like, but I don't believe it is.
All of the 32-degrees guns with powerfeeds had left-pointing powerfeeds, except for the Defender, but the Defender, unlike this gun, had the old-style non-quick strip velocity adjuster and a different ASA.

This one's a real odd duck.

I can identify most of the common Spyder clones on sight but this one has me stumped. The trouble with identifying these guns is that they were almost all made overseas (Taiwan, mostly), and not all of them got wide releases, and some were only sold in foreign countries under different names. There were some oddball Spyder clones that only showed up on eBay and then only for a few months before fading out altogether (Rattlesnake, Enigma, etc.)

This particular one is an odd mixture of parts.
The autococker-style quick strip pin and powerfeed tells me that it was definitely made after 1998 (When Kingman introduced this style of velocity adjuster on the TL and Shutter) and probably before 2003.

The ASA is reminiscent of a that of a Nu-Line Bruzier SOB, but that's not what this is.
Trigger frame also looks like a copy of a Bruzier frame, but cast in plastic.

So I dunno.
I can tell you it's not anything common from a prominent company like Kingman, PMI, or Brass Eagle.

It could also be a Frankenstein of several rarer clones, since there's so much interchangeability with these parts.

Definitely not any Piranha.
All of the powerfeed Piranhas had Spyder compact-style vertical ASAs.
Besides that, the milling on the back of the body and shape of the trigger frame is all wrong.

So the gun doesn't actually say "Bone Daddy" or "Sharc" or "Tigersharc" on the side, does it?

I'm still not convinced this is a Gameface Bone Daddy.
It certainly has the Bone Daddy frame, body, and barrel, but as far as I know the Bone Daddy only came in black, and on this gun the LPC and bolt are match anodized with the body, which is unusual for guns of this period.
Also, has Haniousman pointed out, the bottomline parts, assuming they're factory, are identical to those on a Core Tigersharc.
However, not only is the frame on this gun wrong for a Tigersharc, all the Bone Daddies and Sharc guns actually had their name laser-etched into the side of the body.

I'd be willing to bet the same factory in Taiwan that made the Core guns also made the Bone Daddies (and probably dozens of other similar guns), seeing as how the Bone Daddy body and frame style shows up in several of the Core Sharc series of guns (Sharc, Tigersharc, Hammerhead, etc.)

If there even is a proper name for this particular model of marker, I don't think we've found it yet.

Also, look what I found: http://www.cet.com/~sbryant/manuals/...addyengspa.pdf
