Sell the Xtra and get an Ion or something. Rocking triggers are not allowed at most fields and an Ion would be way faster any way. Theres no way a Spyder is going to go near fast enough for a Q-loader.

barrel, nitro, secondary reg, drop/unimount




A gun is not a weapon... It's a tool. Like a butcher knife, or a harpoon, or...uh, a...an alligator.

I know. I just think it would be more worthwhile to buy a new gun, but if your intent on keeping that one, you should get HPA, a drop forward, and a barrel.

Tell him to get a Nitro tank then buy a good reg and a good barrel. This should all add up to about $300 or so depending which stuff he gets.

getting HPA would definetly be an asset. Also, maby a new regulator would also help a lot. A progressive/teardrop barrel would be fine (I'd recommend the teardrop, I have it and like it, although there are lots of good ones out there). Does he have a drop forward? Those are also nice to have. Maby a new bolt? A supafly perhaps? you'll need to do some research on those.

And people, please don't recommend a new gun. I'm sure he's already considered that option, and has decided against it. Recommending a new gun when he doesn't want one is not going to answer his question.

Heres what he should get...

  1. HPA tank- around $200 depending on what kind he gets.
  2. Reg-I would suggest a CP Grip reg- $65.
  3. Barrel-J&J or Teardrop/Progressive- $40.

Exactly he wants to just keep his Xtra and put more upgrades on it and yes he does have a drop
