Spyder TL

That's what it says on it. I just picked this up for my son, who wants to start playing with friends. It looks nearly new, after some internal cleaning and some air gun oil, I tried it out with the JT cylinder. No leaks and seems to fire well (no paint balls yet). I know nothing about these things so I came here. The feeder adapter is straight and seems to hang the loader ad an odd angle. Can I get a bent one for it and where (are all markers pretty much the same outer diameter on the nipple?) and what size? I paid $35 for it, so I don't think I did too bad.

From your picture, I would say that your Spyder TL has the powerfeed (feedneck lays across the body at a 45*).

You'd be looking for a 45* feedneck adapter elbow (they only come in straight or 45*) to get the hopper to sit vertical.

You can pick these up at quite a few places.
Here are a few websites that have the feedneck elbows for sale:

Also check out your local paintball shop. They'll most likely have a few on hand since they can break often and will be able to help you if any problems arise.

Those are good guns.
The grip looks odd though and I don't think it's stock. Is it rubber or wooden?

They kind of do.
You will have gotten a heck of a deal if that's what they turn out to be.

The grips are some kind of green, laminated wood. They look like they are for a 1911 actually.

They're 45 grips, so they're the same kind as the ones you would find on a 1911.

Yup. Those are Smart Parts grips.
Nice snag! Those are probably worth more than the gun.
