Ok.. only made this account for a few simple questions.

I would like to start off asking you not to tell me to "get another gun" or some **** because I already have a few.

Ok.. I have an old as dirt BE Tiger Shark pump gun.

1.) What threads are used with this because upon inspection, spyder threads don't seem to match up.
2.) Is compressed air or nitrogen alright to run through this although it is an old gun?
3.) Is there a hidden velocity value to crank it up hard core?

(I am planning on using this as a 5-15 round sniper when I mess around in the woods so any suggestions on barrel types and modifications would be greatly appreciated)

Thanks in advance for the help.

EDIT: I got the gun for free and realized even with stock barrel, it shot fairly straight and accurate but I would like to make this a sick sniper. I don't care about efficiency with the air so if someone knows how to make it shoot crazy hard that would be nice. (this is not for tournys.. this is for random woodsball games)

1. If not Spyder, than it might have some kind of super old school thing going, ask the people on MCB

2. Yes, and just incase you didin't know, they are the same thing

3. If you meen a velocity adjuster, than again, ask MCB

For the whole sniping thing, it's not what you might think it to be, and it usually takes a lot of money to do well. The one big difference is that you will be shooting at the same velocity and distance that everyone else shoots at. Going over 300 fps is very dangerous and should never be done.

as for the dangerous thing... guess that is just unfortunate for my hillbilly opponents :)

and compressed air and nitrogen are not the same thing. they are in fact two different gases. nitrogen being N2 and compressed air being a combination of a few gases.

and I don't expect this to be amazing... I just want to have a little fun. and what does MCB stand for?

I implore you to not shoot over 300 fps... When you hear about people getting seriously hurt in paintball, it's because of doing dangerous things like shooting hot...

Yes, they are technically different, but in paintball, thay're the same.

yea well it will only be for a mess around gun and I would just like to know if it had one. also,
I know this is the wrong part of the forum but do you know where the velocity valve on WGP autococker are? I was told they were on the expansion chamber grip..
