good you can answer the question from the other thread; does the one kit come w/an eye or are you saying it doesn't and that's why you want to know if the one from the tes fits. as far as i know the eye on the tes isn't easily detachable from the trigger frame.

The kit does not come with the eye, to use the tes eye you have to remove the bottom board and jumpers from your tes and use them to connect up to the "one". If you don't have any experience doing this sort of thing I suggest going to your local pro shop, or giving Dragun a call

You didn't waste your money. You bought yourself a true electronpneumatic kit, no more sears to trip or replace = a lower operating pressure=more consistant shots.

Yes That is true shok. There will be no sears to replace and it has little wear. It can take some lack of maintenance. It will shoot lower pressures, and it'll be quieter. I haven't seen or used the one kit but I plan on buying it. I'm gonna throw the trigger frame on my TES onto a mech spyder I got, so that's gonna make it a nice 20 bps but I'll just use a halo on it since it has no eye. Also, the new kit can shoot faster if you can move your fingers fast enough. No hopper does 22+ constant but the halo does do 51 bursts. I think the one can get 25-30 a second.

the price of most everything drops after the hype has simmered down. i'm sure the 'one kit' is no exception.

It would be worth it for ~ $150 or so.

It rips with/without the kit. I would have bought a cheap spyder to put the kit on.

The one kit is a hell of a deal. It comes with a Electronic grip. Spyder electronic grips are $100 alone! Then you get to make it electro-pneumo, that's just killer. For $185, I'm getting one when I get the money.

I agree too. Where else can you get a upgrade kit that will increase your performance, and give you parts left over to build a cheap electro sear tripper based off a Spyder clone ?

Yeah, I agree the ONE is a great tool. However, I personally couldn't justify spending $200+ on the TES and then another $200 on an "upgrade" kit. I would have:

A) Bought a cheap old spyder and bought the one.
B) Bought the ONE gun.

I am working on buying a CHEAP spyder type body.

Im going to get it milled by Apoc's guy for top cocking(Maybe some other cool milling) and then Im going to paint it myself. I might use the Purple/Green Mirage paint, as I painted my original with Red/Blue.

Buying a Timmy Bolt, Feedneck and slapping the One kit on it.

Painting it in the House of Colors Chameleon would be cool (same concept as the paint your using, but a buttload more expensive,lol) but paint will chip and flake off aluminum in the long run, unless you dont use it. After you have it milled, have it bead blasted, then apply a clear metalflake, then lightly coat the marker with your paint of choice, after it dries and you have the color you desire, apply the clear metalflake to it again. You will love the effect.

As far as the TES vs a Cheap Spyder, get the TES and the One kit, then buy a Spyder and convert it with the left over parts. You can then:
a.) sell it
b.) Have a cheap back up

Either way you come out ahead !!!!!!

Well, actually since "the One" gun is somewhat hard to find and not discounted (that I have found) right now it is cheaper to buy a TES ($235) + the One Kit ($185-200) then sell your extra grip and reg. Or put the extra grip/reg on your cheap Spyder if you need a backup. Overall the pricing doesn't quite add up right now.
