I think the problem is one of several things:

1) C02 is irregular and will sometimes do that, also it is exagerrated because of the cold
2) Strip the gun down and clean it, then lube the hell out of it, use paintball gun oil, or regular gun oil, but keep it away from o-rings
3) paint might be old, dimpled or dirty
4) it's a Spyder, my imagine had this problem too, but with some TLC it'll shoot fine for you


Oh, and slow down when you type, k?

have you chopped any paint? if so have you cleaned it sense? that could easily be the problem, just clean it then give the o rongs a little loob and you should be fine.

Yeah, It's probably either dimpled paint, or the paint varies in size causing it to not fit the barrel.

O-rings need to be oiled... that's why you use oil designed for your specific type of paintball gun. Blowbacks (spyders are blowbacks) use liquid synthetic oil, nothing petroluem based.
