AMG/VS2 Hybrid

Here we have one of my Spyder AMG's (the other is original still in box) that I have turned into something I think is unique.

You can't see them installed but I have successfully installed the balance valve system from the VS2 along with the little striker and an old 32* spring kit have made the ultimate little project here.

The marker has a Tadao board and is capable of supporting eyes but with loader technology the way it is I see no reason to move further with this what I intend to do is show a stock AMG shooting compared to that of a VS/AMG hybrid to see if there really is a difference.

Upon successful reliability test with the hybrid parts I plan to hack off as much metal off the top tube as possible, all the way up to the first o ring on the bolt in the upper tube, then have the entire thing chrome plated. This gun came with a custom standard ASA adaptor which will be chromed as well and I will put a Chrome CP reg on it. GOing to have a lot of fingerprints but at the same time it will be totally *****in'..

I am searching for my old ESP dye stickies! THat will really complete this thing. I see no reason why I won't be able to operate this marker at 200PSI.. Also featured is a Spyder fenix trigger and VS2 microswitch. Radio shack rare earth magnets serve as the trigger return action.




!!!----------------UPDATE----------------!!!








Also Succesfully ported over VS2 Trigger, worked out any side slop and added Rare earth magnets for return.


Tada!

argh it hurts those guns are so elegant in their simple sleek bodies cutting one up hurts me. as for the balance valve mod i dont know if the previous owner kept it on the gun but to make the valve work i made a adjustable spring perch so that you could get the proper tension.

Don't be sad... I have another one that is going to stay whole and completely stock.. it is a peice of history afterall..

Balance valve went right in no problems, it was all plug and play really. I didn't use the adjustable perch, Im using the original AMG spring in the front and it works great.

Is this what you are talking about? It was totally unncessary!

ya thats it. i remember the guy made kinda a fuss about being able to adjust the spring tension so he could tune the marker better. and he had to use a spring kit. i think i told him it was unnecessary but what the customer wants the customer gets.
