A new clamping feedneck would be nice as well, the screw one is decent, but kinda tall

After a VS1/2 Frame, I'd get a CP trigger

Also a new reg adapter and a quality reg of your choice

A new ASA to replace the stock ASA/Reg combo (unless it's like the RS and RSX which has a normal on/off ASA and reg)

Bob Long Pillow Bolt (they fit, apparently Bob based the old Timmy of the Spyder platform, thus the creation of the Spimmy)

Tadao Board and Musashi 7 chip (cheaper than Virtue)

Nice Barrel Kit would be good help when sizing your bore

The RS series has an on/off ASA as does the VS2 and VS3

It is the same way on the VS3, but on Youtube there is a mod you can do to take out the reg function from the ASA

NiCad batteries are very specific in storage procedures

You should never leave a NiCad battery charged over a long period of time
They form a crystalline structure within the battery and eventually quit holding a charge

Always store your NiCad batteries discharged and there will be no problem

So you think it's the bttery?

A new reg won't help
If it was your reg, the marker would simply not recock

A video would be a big help IMO

Alright, I'll work on a video soon.

I'm starting to think it's the battery anyway
I have a 9.6v Spyder rechargeable, but it's kinda old
For some reason i think it might not be powerful enough to push the sear up every time (especially when shooting fast)
So I might try oiling up the sear a little (probly a bad idea) or replacing the sear's spring to one with less resistance

stupid Spyders...

It probably thinks you have an eye malfunction

Turn your eyes off and try dryfiring
If it's fast, than there's something wrong with your eyes

Or maybe your dwell is set too low?

I dryfired like a half a tank the other night - adjusting velocity and input pressure the whole time
(is dwell the same as velocity? how do I adjust the dwell?)

The gun shoots exactly the same speed - eyes on or off - paintballs or none
The board seems to be working fine and I've had the same problems even with my old board, so it's got to be something else
There aren't any leaks, the eyes do work on the gun, I just put new detents and grip screws in (not that that matters lol)
The battery is fully charged, all the modes work on the Tadao board, gun is clean, gun is oiled, all o-rings are fine (I think)

Changing the velocity does not affect the "cycling?" speed at all
The input pressure is just high enough to where the gun re cocks every time(250 psi)

EXAMPLE: When the gun is on three round burst, it will fire one time MAYBE two out of the three shots with one trigger pull

Just trying to give as much info as I can so someone can find my problem

I was thinking about buying a new CP reg anyway... so does anyone think this will help the problem? or should I save the money?

How do I adjust dwell/what is dwell?
