Question spyder tl plus (to buy or not to buy)

my friend is sellng a fairly new spyder tl plus for $80 but he said that he thinks the co2 is freezing up in his gun because when he fires it rapidly it makes the sound as if it has run out of c02 but then the next shot it is fine, my questions are 1)is this the problem? 2)how can it be fixed? 3) how much would it cost to fix it? 4)and is it a good deal? Thanks

ok

ok i have had the problem on my TL plus Cost: 0$ Price is good so buy it. The problem is his co2 tank isnt screwed in all the way and even if that isnt the problem u can recock it in like 2 seconds its not that big of a deal or u can go online and buy one for 130 u choose ide much rather get a 80$ gun that u have to recock every once in a while with a new CP one peice barrel than have a new stock TL plus. Thats just me, what do you other poeple think

PS: thats not the problem rapid fire would not cuase ure gun to freeze up from co2 and plus that almost impossible if not that it would freeze it so badley that it would need to recock. Lets just say its very unlikely. anyways take the gun but dont tell him thats the problem cuase then he will be like o never mind i will keep it, it has happend to me, this noob was going to sell me a gun for cheap because it wouldnt work right or something and i knew the problem so i told him...big mistake didnt get a Shutter fo 45$ thats SS hose came loose. rofl suks for me

Exclamation Tl +

The problem sounds like he has the velocity set wrong, or way to high. If you get a regulator it should fix the problem. Also, I recommend having or buying a tank with a anti syphon tube. That would help or basically stop all problems with the liquid c02 getting in the gun. for $80 ? sounds like a good deal. If it is a tl+ that is a tourny level gun. I suggest using N2 if compatible. Also, check all the O-rings inside the gun. Sometimes they will break or be totally missing! But, they wont leak and they will still cause the gun to burp while shooting large amounts. My shutter did it once and it was the regulator and also a o-ring was cracked.

TL pluses suck. All Spyders stink except for the EM1. Spyders=Bad. Piranhas=good. Get a Piranha. They are better .My friend has a TL plus...and his looks hella ugly now after the upgrades he put on it. He is in love with my basic Piranha. Get a Piranha, they r more comfortable and lighter.

I'll bet you everything I have that your TL has more money into it than the Pirahna that you shot. That is the reason WHY it shot better.

Little grammar wouldn't hurt...

er right

um yeah i do know wut im talkin about and yes the one i did shoot did have much more money into that the Pirahna but that was just your point. You said the Pirahna you had shot better than his Fully upgraded TL Plus. This is a Thread about a TL plus and a problem with it, not about if its good or not so lets get back to the subject.

If i were you i would go buy that thing rite away. It will be a good gun for the same amount as a Compact 2k? nice..go buy it

don't even act like you haven't done anything.

O ya dont act like you know all this stuff about Spyders when you have a Tippman. Nothin agaist tippmans or anything but they are totally different guns and i doubt you would know about them when you have a Tippman and yes i do know lots of stuff about spyders...becuase i own one and i have shot a Tipmann (with alot more money into than my spyder) and i like my spyder better still. So just Stop the flames

sorry

Sorry man i got off topic. I dont know what would be wrong with it if it is doing that. Hmm i have never had that prob, you might try next time you go and play talk to the airsmiths at your local field and see if they can find out what is wrong with it. I cant think of anything
