Troubleshooting The Spyder Imagine Paintball Marker

Aug 18, 2007
In spite of the fact that the Spyder Imagine paintball marker is extremely popular, there are some minor problems that most Spyder markers and paintball guns tend to have. For the most part these problems are easily fixed. In many cases you can even fix the problem while still on the playing field.

If your Spyder Imagine paintball marker locks up on you during play, you have probably broken a paintball in the chamber. You can easily fix this by laying the paintball marker on a flat surface with the barrel hanging off and pointing downward. Give the barrel a good whack and it should come loose. If you are on the field and do not have a good surface to use, you can try jarring the butt of the paintball marker against the ground or other surface to loosen the broken paintball.

If you are playing on the field and find that your paintballs keep breaking, there may be some adjustments needed to your paintball gun. Some of these adjustments may be done on the field, while others will need to be done somewhere comfortable and where tools are accessible.

First, the velocity may be set too high on your gun. Check the velocity settings to make sure something didn't get bumped. Next, check your power feed plug, because if it is not straight up and down it is probably your reason for breaking paintballs.

Finally, a leak down the barrel is one of the most common problems with Spyder paintball guns of any style. There are a few things that you can do to fix this problem both on and off the field. You should keep some tools in your paintball gear bag to make sure that you are prepared for these types of repairs on the field.

A couple of easy possible fixes for a leaky barrel will be to clean or tighten up the cup seal. Another possible fix is to check the valve guide for bending. If it is bent, bend it back for the time being and plan on buying a new one in the near future. For these repairs you will need to take apart the valve assembly, which is fairly easy but can be time consuming. If you are doing this on the field you will need to have someone cover you while you disassemble and reassemble your paintball marker for these repairs.
