uprgrade or buy new?

I currently have a victor 2 with the following upgrades:
-smart parts progressive 12" barell
-cip 15degree assault block
-expansion chamber (not sure of what brand though)
-acs derlin bolt
-e-trigger from a e99 avant

i've heard all spyder internals are the same...
should i keep upgrading my victor2 to the max?....
or upgrade to something like the imagine 05 and just start upgrading it all over again?

with electric spyders, it's basically mostly personal preference as yes, they are pretty much all the same inside... it's your choice as to what you want to do with it, but i'd go with whatever you like more, and whatever you think looks better... all the upgrades you have on the victor 2 should be compatible with say, an imagine, so you shouldnt have a problem there... personal preference...

I'd buy the Imagine 05 then use some of the ups you already have for it. Then just spend another $50-100 on it for more ups and it'll be a nice gun

forget that you have ever heard of an imagine 05. When you are ready to get something new sell your spyder and all of its parts and buy an ion!!!!!

ions are nice guns, but he didnt say he was looking at an ion did he??, yes it'd be a good idea, but if you want to stick with spyders then keeping, or switching to an imagine 05 is all personal preference.

but why buy an imagine when he has a marker already equal to the imagine? sounds like a waste of money if you ask me

im on the bunny's side.....up what you got or sell it all for an ion. no reason to buy another spyder just to up it, unless thats what you really have your heart set on.

I dont know... I would probly buy another gun because I like having a backup when I chop a ball. That way I can just grab my other gun. Also I can let a friend use it if he dosent have one.
If you relly want to know (and I know you do) if I was getting a new gun I would get a 2002 or 2003 autococker most likly a used one.

But that's just me.
