Silver Bullet LCD or Spyder

I want an cheap electronic gun, but i dont know to get a silver bullet LCD or a Spyder. If i got a spyder i would get a Electra DX, Fenix, AMG LCD, or E-99. I have a Tippmann 98c, but i want something faster with good acuracy. If you know of any other guns tell me.

Spyder imagine, it's like $100-120 and it's just as good as every other spyder you mentioned except the amg (which isn't much better anyway.) electra and fenix are just makeover spyders and e99 has dip switches instead of IPI. And silver bullets don't have the best rep, but I haven't seen one.

I would buy an esprit. Then get a regulator ( I love my bob long torpedo even though i run air). Then get a nice drop forward (pick one you like).

Optional (in order of importance):
motorized hopper (i like the egg2)
new valve (I like the Maddman rocket valve $35)
new bolt (bandit bolt $50)
new barrel (or system) (i have a scepter but they are hard to find and they're expensive)

I'd say agitated hopper and barrel are necessities and have to be at the top of the list. Definitely gonna need those on any bpowback before anything else.

I already have a 14 inch progressive barrel, and i was going to get a VL evolution 2 hopper. The only reason i dont want a spyder is because i want turbo mode or whatever it is. (when it shoots on the pull and the release) Also does the silver bullet work well with C02, if not i am getting compressed air because i can get filled for free.( my friends dad is a fireman and can fill them)

well if you want something with a turbo the only guns i can think would have to be used to be within your price range

check out the buy/sell/trade forums for

a-5 with e grip

a old style turbo shocker

those are the only ones i can think of at the moment

by the way my dad is a fireman too are you talking about just filling the tanks of their air packs?

No he said he could fill them off the tank they fill there air packs with. It is in room and you set the machine to the amount of air the tank holds and it automatically fills it.

As far as Silver Bullet on CO2 that is what I do (only 'cause I have to, I won't do it any longer than I can afford N2) I would say get anti-siphon, that is what I'm doing, if you fire then gun at a descent ROF for long with CO2 it gets cold as hell, lots of snow shootin, and that inevitably leads to a break and drop in accuracy. plus it just isnt consistent, I can put it on full auto and pull controlled bursts, but if I hold it the air spikes and then drops off so it don't recock.

This is when I'm not using my remote btw.

Two of my friends have imagines and the accuracy SUCKS even with a 16 inch barrel..........but that might just be theirs. One of them only shoots semi and its brand new ( i think its screwed up)

I was also thinking about just getting an E-bolt for my tippmann, but you can get a electronic gun plus a good loader for the same price. What is the difference between the 98 E-bolt and the A-5 e trigger frame? Or response trigger.

Ebolt is for the 98c, it converts the gun into an electropneumatic. Egrip is an electronic sear tripper (like on the silver bullet or imagine) that only fits the a5, rt uses excess gas to power a piston that pushes the trigger forward after every shot. It can be sweetspotted which is like full auto, and doesnt involve electronics, and works for both markers.

Silver Bullets are pretty fast. Someone on my team said with one with the trigger shortened all the way, he could make it bounce. I don't think Spyder e-triggers are all that nice.

Yeah I talk with this dude who also has a Silver Bullet down in Georgia, he said if you shorten the trigger you can hit it from the side and it will still fire, he made it so light someone bumped it and shot him in the foot while he was showing it to them. I will shorten mine as soon as I get some friggin' smaller allen wrenches.

isnt the silver bullet just a spyder clone? check out piranhas too. great quality, plenty of parts, great customer service, and they are made here in the good ol USA not over there in japan.

Actually, one of my friends sold his shutter and coughed up for a silver bullet lcd (despite my protests), and I'm actually a bit impressed. It doesnt really shoot different from a spyder, the stock barrel is semi decent (better than most blowback stock barrels) and it's got a nice adjustable trigger that I was gettin 15-17 bps on. I'd say as far as comfort, looks and speed it's in with the top of the blowback class, but I can't comment on quality, and it is a bit expensive.
