Spyder Victor: Maintenance

For more info, be sure to check out the manual

Skipping this maintenance will cause your gun to break down and get you lit up like a Christmas tree.

Overview:
Best Lubes for your Spyder:
  • Gold cup oil, or a quality paintball oil is recommended for lubricating the o-rings in your Spyder marker

Before Playing:
  • This Spyder marker is mechanical & doesn't require the same amount of maintenance as an electronic marker. That said, following the guidelines below will keep you ahead of the game

  • Put a drop of oil in your ASA before attaching your air tank. Once attached, test firing your marker a few times will lubricate your internals. Be sure to remove your barrel first.

Between Games:
  • Wipe down the outside of your marker with a clean rag

  • Remove the Delrin bolt and wipe it down. Apply two drops of oil to the bolt and rub it in before reinstalling. Make sure the air hole located in the middle of the bolt is facing downward when re-installed

  • Repeat the items above

After 1-2 Cases of Paint (2k-4k):
After 2-4 Cases of Paint (4k-8k):
  • Repeat the items above

  • Striker Bolt: Follow the steps below or check out the video

    • Start by removing your C02 & degassing your marker

    • With the bolt out, remove the Striker Plug by turning it clockwise

    • Next, remove the Striker Spring

    • To remove the rest of the components (Striker Bolt, Striker Buffer), squeeze & hold the trigger, then pop them out using a hammering type motion into your palm (reference the video below)

    • Note: The trigger is squeezed to prevent damage to the Striker Bolt o-ring during removal

      • Striker Bolt o-ring: #14.3mm x 1.7mm 70pu
