Remove the valve cap on your Spyder paintball gun and screw in a low pressure chamber. The increased reservoir of air expands the valve chamber and lowers the necessary operating pressure of your Spyder paintball gun. Available in choice of materials.
The Shocktech Spyder LPC is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Well it looks pretty. : / A low pressure chamber is a low pressure chamber is a low pressure chamber. Adding a LPC no matter who makes it or how much you paid for it does absolutely NOTHING for you guns performance. It is strictly a cosmetic upgrade.
So really all you have to need to know when buying a new low pressure chamber is "does it looks pretty ?" if it looks pretty on your gun then you wont be disappointed. Unless of course you are a tard that thinks it is going to do something magical.

This is for a newer model of LPC than the one pictured. I tryed to upload a picture and I think that it will work so you can see it. Since this LPC is mostly a cosmetic upgrade and doesn't really ad that much volume to your marker it really made me mad when the sticker on the end didn't fit, and the hole that it went in was off center, and the sticky was gone off of the sticker. The sticker was about 1/8 of an inch to big around and I had to cut it to make it go in. It was nice that they didn't install so that you could make it right side up but when it came the back had fallen off and all of the stickieniss was gone so I had to glue it on. If you don't look at the end it looks fine and other than the sitcker the LPC looks great. Also the other day my marker was setting on the ground and I heard it start leaking and thought it was kinda wierd, the O-ring on the inside of the LPC had busted and leaked out a bunch of co2.
I think that this product is still worth the money but I would look at the sticker before I bought it because I saw one on a friends marker and his sticker fit fine. I am giving it a six because the problem was cosmetic on a cosmetic upgrade.

Does nothing compared to any other LPC
I'm writing this review because apparently some ppl r a little misguided about Spyder LPCs. They DO NOT lower pressure. They're there to allow CO2 to expand and hold excess gas from the front block until the air is released through th valve. The reason y they have the title "LPC" is because they look similar to the low pressure regs on Angels and such. It gives you no extra shots whatsoever. The only reason y u would ever want 2 but this is because it looks cool. Heck Kingman ever admits that it's a gimmick. The only way a Shocktech LPC (or any other LPC for that matter) can be a true low pressure chamber is if you install a low pressure valve, low pressure regulator, high-flowing blot, and a LP tank to your marker. The other term for LPCs is "Volumizers", and I think this term should be used more often. As for frost, yes it may help cuz the gas can expand but no more than any other Volumizer. If u have trouble w/ liquid CO2 get a Regulator cuz it will improve ur accuracy too
Don't buy it. If u really want 2 waste ur money cuz u like how it looks then go ahead
I'm giving it an average rating cuz it's no different than anything else of it's type
stock - same as pictured but not same as the 1 i am reviewing (pictured is a cosmetic up really) The 1 different from pic is add volume.
CIP sweetspot trigger
front block from rodeo (came wit non removable expansion chamber w/ inline regulater
the better shocktech lpc
soon to come: T-board w/ eyes 25 or 50g switch and if im to fast a z board for eggy and also a madman valve
50ish more shots per fill
Company is almost to reliable
None unless its the 1 pictured since that 1 is only a cosmetic upgrade
This is a good upgrade for those look for less ball breakage and lower psi it is good but wit c02 i think it does get more frost (who cares) so lower psi add volume and both are also cosmetic upgrades but the 1 i have is better than stock all around. i hope that f i f t y words. Its worth it in the long run trust me company is VERY reliable i got ther bolt is its very good but thats another review so buy this its worth it.
Buy it if ur lookin for lower psi its a 9 since its a little pricey but it does elp u out so its worth it in the long run

I love this thing. it looks awesome on my gun, and i get a lot more shots outta my tank that before. with my tank, im only suppose to get up to 1100 shots, but with this sucker slapped on, i get 2000+. how sweet is that? i played paintball for 6 hours straight and went through 2500 rounds all on a 20oz tank with NO REFILLS. of course, this might be the result of my expansion chamber and/or my gun, but im sure this contributed too.
Buy it. a must-own for any one with a spyder. and its cheap.

14" J J ceramic
cp flame drop forward
this thing is awsome. The first time I used it I loved it. it adds an extra ounce to my tank because its longer than stock Low Pressure Chamber. I also think it makes your shots more consistant because I would keep landing the shots right on top of each other
its also nice because it makes your gun look really cool.
buy this product its awesome

This is a cosmetic upgrade. All LPCs operate the same, this one has no shortcomings. If you need an LPC, this one is great. It doesn't explode and it doesn't leak. It looks good, nice styling and aluminum coloring. If you are happy with the stock LPC you don't need to upgrade. Only if you want your gun to look a little better.
Great cosmetic upgrade. If you want better looks on your gun and are throwing out the stock parts this is a great addition. Does it's job perfectly.
Spyder Victor, Freak barrel with SS back, Shocktech lpc, revy(midnight blue and black dust), 20oz co2.
air effeciant, cheap.
None at all.
I love this thing, I got 1400+ shots from my 20oz tank. Its also very cheap. And it also comes in a varity of colors to match your gun color. If you have a spyder buy this! Another great product from Shocktech. plus its only $15. Not much differant from the stock one though
Buy. good spyder upgrade. Shocktech has done it again. but its a cosmetic upgrade so it isnt really nessisary
