But you can't even compare the Ion to the Spyder. One's an electropneumatic, the other's a sear-tripper. Plus, Spyders can run on CO2 and a cheap electric hopper (unless you get like the T-board and stuff). That by itself is gonna cost an extra $150 or so for the Ion. Spyders and Tippies = ultimate beginner and tinkerer gun.

Yeah, I forgot to mention, resale on Spyders suck, no one'll give them a chance.

You could maybe get $50 out of a stock imagine. If it's in good condition.

"The Imagine is not the worlds greatest gun, but it doesn't suck. You could sell it for 100 and then save up another hundred and buy an Ion with the 200 you have. But obviously I'm forgetting the need for an HPA tank and hopper, and a good pair will cost me another 300 or so."

Another plus: that $300 will buy near all of what was on my little list.

*Sigh*

I miss tweaking my Spyder. I owe my folks like $179, so I'm out of it for a while...

Last I checked, when I painted my grip frame, I lost the sear return spring, so I'm gonna have to contact Kingman. Maybe I can get a new one for free.

It's an '03 Imagine that has been stripped, sanded, milled, and modded. If they still count that under warranty, than Kingman has the uberest customer service of them all...

I e-mailed them to see if they could just send me a spring, seeing as to it's just a spring. If not, I also asked what I would have to go through to get one.
