The Lapco Drop Forward is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Spyder Tl+ with lapco drop forward, dye grips, upgraded barrel, sight, blah blah sum other junk
IT looks real nice, and is one of the only drop forwards to fit a spyder. Ballances gun nicely, extremely comfortable in my opinion. Cheap, like $25, and its adjustable too, you can even mount it so the tank goes under your gun wich is koo
The holes for the spyder screws arnt as nice. Screws didnt fit that it came with.
I have used this drop forward on a Tippman Model 98 and my Standard Spyder each with an expansion chamer. Both guns have been customized but that isn't all that important here.
If you get the newest model it will fit Spyder bottom line setups AND inline grip screws on every other marker. You can set it up so that the bottom of the bottle faces away from you. I haven't tried this but it would place the bottle completely under the marker. Looks very nice with a shiny black finish.
Not a whole lot. It doesn't come with mounting screws,but those should already be in place on your marker.
This drop forward isn't fancy but looks nice. It gets the job done at an inexpensive price. I used to carry 12 oz. tanks to avoid the extra weight of the 20 oz. tank. The drop makes telling the difference from mounting the 12 oz. and 20 oz. very difficult. I will carry either tank with this drop forward.
This is a great drop forward; it looks good and it puts a 68ci or an 88ci tank in just the right spot on my Tippmann 98 Custom. It doesn't require new air lines or anything on the 98, I just went to Home Depot and bought a brass 90 deg. fitting from their plumbing section and it fits perfect (the flat 90's from paintball shops aren't quite long enough)...
Personally I think *ALL* drop forwards should come with the extra junk required to install them considering the price charged for a piece of milled aluminum, but this drop forward is nice and it's priced comparably to what's out there.
It gets a 9 only because I had to go get a fitting from home depot ;)
this drop forward perfectly drops a 68 ci 4500 Pure Energy to the right length so you can place it against your shoulder nicely. It is beautiful. It makes your gun very balanced and very stable expecially when snap shooting
This drop forward is a quality made product. I used one on my TL plus and was so impressed that I put one on my 2K1 Cocker. Nice finish and a great fit, well worth the money.
Nothing at all
When I had this drop forward on my Spyder, the fit of my 68 ci tank on it was very comfortable, just the right distance for keeping the gun steady. When I purchased my Cocker I was so impressed with the Lapco that I bought another one for the new gun.This Drop Forward allows me to screw on my dual regulated 68ci tank with no problem.There is also several adjustments to move the ASA forward or backward to suite the user.It also makes the gun a little more compact because it doesn't drop down to far(my personal preference)If you have a screw in tank this is a great product and it is very strong and well built. I probably forgot some things but if you are in the market for a quality drop forward,definitely check this one out.
