My Intruder... Stock with a drop. (IE 12" Slapstick, x-chamber)
Depends on what you want to do with it... It's pretty much just a Spyder... do that with this.
Reg for consistency (consistency = accuracy)
Double Trigger (preference... I hate them)
Electro Grip (if it fits... I haven't tried one yet.)
Revy if you do any of the above (except reg)
I've yet to break or chop a ball (I have a slow finger, which may be a factor)
Easy to find parts (My local pro shop focuses on Piranhas, which are mainly compatible... all Spyder parts are)
Come stock with worthwhile stuff (not a single piece of plastic on the body, except grip panels and detent.)
.45 grips stock
Good stock barrel. (it fits my field paint perfectly, and you can buy it aftermarket. I like it better than any other straight barrel I've tried.)
I got mine used. The guy before me used the wrong kind of oil, putting it in the ASA. Now the expansion chamber is gummed up, making the marker only work with sufficient backpressure to recock (only with a ball in, or barrel plug) NOT A DEFECT
The Allen Keys that come with this thing are... not... good... quite frankly, they're terrible. Get a real set at a hardware store (or just the ones you need) and that $5 will save you much aggravation.
Other than that, I find nothing wrong, the rest is all preference. (Colours, chrome etc.)
Some of the tolerences are a little wierd... this isn't a gun you want to make parts for (yourself. I enjoy tinkering)
I bought this marker as a comprimise (I wanted a Tippy, but couldn't afford it)
I like it. It works the way it's supposed to, and that's all that really matters.
It's a Spyder in flannel, wearing a Toque. A fully Canadian marker.
It's better than buying a Spyder. Guaranteed. I'd rate a Spyder a 5.
