What is the operating pressure on the 07 sonix? Also what reg would be the best for it and would i have to make any other more adjustments so it would fit?

Welcome to the forums! feel free to check out the Ultimate Resource Thread in my sig. It will help you out.

What are you using to power your gun? that will help us determine what regs are available to you.

I am currently using CO2 but am looking to convert to Hpa in a few months. Another question why is LP better and how do you convert? Thanks

LP will cut down on kick and save you gas.
In the thread in my sig there are a list of regs that only allow HPA and ones that work with both.
You convert buy buying alot of internal items to keep the pressure down.

welcome to the forums.

standard operating pressure is whatever your tank output is (about 900 for co2 and 850 for hpa). it will recock at as low as 250 psi, but you won't have enough velocity to get the ball anywhere (somewhere around 190fps). other than a reg, the only thing you really need to lower your operating pressure is a valve. it increases airflow, allowing for higher fps at lower psi.

Thanks will i need a new hose if i get a reg and how much do valves cost and how much will they reduce operating pressure?

i'm actually planning on getting a few magnaports (one for each gun and some spares). if you look at the Project LP page, the 32 degrees Turbo Valve is the same as the Mangaport (:otter: told me himself!) and its half the price of the NDZ one.

yes on the hose thing, and spyder hose threading is weird, so you'll most likely need to get a metric to 1/8th NPT adapter for your bottomline end (where the tank screws into) for the standard threaded hose to fit.

Where can you get the hose and stuff and can you install the valve yourself? Thanks a ton

Also how long should i get for the hose and where do you get the metric to 1/8th NPT adapter? Last how much am i looking at not including the reg?

if you look at your owners manual, it shows how to take the valve out. you simply replace the old one with the new one.

or you can get macroline which can be cut to the exact length you need and is easier to take off.

How long should i order and is it easy to put the fittings on the macroline?

Arent they some kind of press-lock fitting?

What are you talking about?

he means you press the macronline into the fitting. when you connect it, you slip it in and barbs on the inside of the fitting grab the hose and hold it in place so that it doesnt get ripped/pushed out. to take it off, you push the hose all the way into the fitting, push down on the outside ring of the fitting (this disengages the barbs), and slide the fitting off.
