Kingman Spyder TL Current Setup:
Modified Stock Bolt
32* Turbo Valve
Dark Horizons Striker w/ OtterMod
Palmer Stabilizer w/ Phat Performance HP Guage (would rather have phatty, but I got this for HP, then decided to go LP)
32* MacroLine Remote
47/3000 Aluminum Tank w/ ACI Bulldog III reg (fixed 800psi output)
WGP 2-Piece Classic Barrel
Dye Double Trigger w/ LIGHT Trigger
ADCO Red Dot Sight
Laser Sight w/ Pressure Switch (custom-fitted by me. Helps w/ snapshots during nightgames)
GunHead Spyder-O Stock
Low Pressure Chamber
Fairly durable construction
Looks absolutely awesome
Very Solid after a few mods
Needed some additional modifications for strip pin to fit
Certain modifications restrict adjusting the stock
I must have spent about 45min drilling out part of the piece (that doubles as the velocity adjuster) for the strip pin to fit, so I could attach this thing to my marker (drill, then double check the fit, repeat) ...The pin that comes with the item still won't fit, but the stock one fits just fine now.
Just like the stocks for the Tippmans, this one wobbles. It's inevitable when you use a plastic casing around an aluminum bar (that's pretty much the construction of the stock). I've heard of people removing the plastic stock from the aluminum bar, taping laminated paper to the aluminum bar, then replacing the plastic stock -- apparently this will give you a solid stock. All I did was: instead of using laminated paper, I used electrical tape. This will also give you a solid stock, but (in both cases) it will also help prevent you from adjusting the stock, but now the stock is rock solid.
Once all the mods were done, I was astonished how the realism of my marker changed. It's solid, so I don't feel like I have to worry about breaking it. I can concentrate more on my game.
The Spyder-O Stock drops down a bit, so if you use a sight rail, you'll have more than enough mask clearance.
Overall, this is a decent stock. It looks awesome, especially since I'm going for as much realism as possible to get the most out of playing...but if you're going for something that will be more effective with snapshots, I think you'll have better luck modifying a Pump Marker Stock (straighten out the bend so you don't have to raise your head as high to see over the sight rail); however, I havn't had a chance to take it out in the field yet.
I give it an 8 since I had to spend so much time doing modifications.
Pissed off that you got this stock since it's not quite what you expected? Wondering what I did to mine that made it so much better? Go here:
I will also put updates on how the stock performs in the field...when I get the chance that is.
8 out of 10

uhm...the Kingman Spyder TL and TL-Plus are essentially the same thing. The only difference is that the TL-Plus has a double trigger, gas-through fore grip, and mini expansion chamber (IE: the body designs are the same -- aside from the slight deviance during the manufacturing process). In short, according to the description the O-Stock is completely compatible w/ my marker.
