Spyder e99 Avant Questions Looking to do some upgrades
Posted 31 January 2013 - 12:35 AM
I bought a e99 avant off of a guy on Craigs list for $50 with all the accessories, but has not been upgraded at all. I brought it to the course last weekend and chrono'ed it and the max I could get it up to was 215f/s. I got a new spring (thankfully for free from the pro shop) and got it to 260 f/s max. I would love to add a regulator to it to maybe juice it up a bit as well as getting a good spring for it. What would you guys recommend that I put on it to increase f/s and/or what kind of regulator would help out. I have a 48 c/inch 3000psi tank right now.
Also was wondering if there was anyway that I could put eyes on it or other upgrades that you would recommend. The one thing that I am already doing is putting in an anti-chop bolt and a roller trigger.
Any other suggestions would be great.

First thing is first, do you have a great mask? I mean a mask with thermal lenses and feels good on your face.
If so you should upgrade your tank before you upgrade the gun. A carbon fiber tank can be found for around 90-100 on CL and will be be significantly lighter than your current tank and will give you more shots per fill.
If the E99 is not upgraded, you will need a new feedneck and barrel most likely. Custom products barrels are great and CCM makes good feednecks. Custom Products regulators are pretty popular.

I really want to make sure my gun shoots fast enough for the field. Should I look into a regulator or should a spring kit be fine?
