I was wondering if I purchased the spyder assualt block and put a reg on it there would be a hole for a gauge on the assualt block and reg wich one would get the gauge???

Your question is a little hard to follow, but yes, there is a gauge hole in the assault block. As far as a guage port on the reg, depends on the regulator. In my opinion, the guage looks better on the assault block anyways.

So if I had a gauge on the reg it would work and read the same thing as if I had it on the assualt block?

01-09-2006, 06:38 PM
Yes, it would read exactly the same.

I do not personally like having the gauge on the regulator, but it's all your preference.

Here is a pic of the Assult Block with a gauge.

You could also go with the Trinity -7d Assault Block. That comes with a gauge port and is different than what most have on their markers. Although the air flow is better in the CIP Assault Block.

Here is the Trinity:

on the assualt block is better for me so the gauge on the reg doesnt get in the way of my incredible owning skills:pwnd: :pwnd: :pwnd: :butwiggle: :butwiggle: :butwiggle: :butwiggle: :butwiggle: :lolsign: :lolsign:

yea ok. if u get a mini gauge it does not even get close to being in the way.
expecialy the bob long.

I just don't like the little bulge on the regulator of a gauge no matter the size, and I find that it is easier to see the gauge when it's on the V/A anyways. It's all preference, tho, so if you like it there, go for it. :)

whats an assualt block do?

01-27-2006, 11:10 AM
The assault block allows more air flow so that you can run your marker at a lower more efficient pressure.

01-27-2006, 02:49 PM
ok so youd want a regulator with that right?

01-27-2006, 02:51 PM
Yes, it would be best if you did, but I've seen people use them without regulators.

does the rear thumb velocity ajuster ajust the air preasue or spring coil?

i got a checkit. air flow is fine. i put a bob long gauge on it. umm regs depending on where the gauge is reading from. input or output. and hell. a guage on ebay is only like 10 bux. make the gun look fancy and put 2 on there. but they gotta be boblong! cuz hes the man. lol. J/k even thought itd be fun to have a timmy. id still shoot my spydet tho. cuz i actually know how to work on spyders.

a guage on ebay is only like 10 bux.
why would you want to save just 2 bucks .. most likely excluding shipping to buy it from ebay ... you can probably get a new one for 12 bucks at the proshop .. more or less depending on where you are ...

make the gun look fancy and put 2 on there.
What are you talking about in the whole putting on 2 gauges there ?? ... it's just be a waste of money ... and why would you need two places do see your psi reading ???

but they gotta be boblong! cuz hes the man. lol. J/k even thought itd be fun to have a timmy. id still shoot my spydet tho. cuz i actually know how to work on spyders.

Anyways, i prefer the gauge on the VA .. cuz it won't be in the way of anything

01-29-2006, 03:43 PM
ok well im gona skip it for now its just 3 bucks for all day air any way
i might get an on off valve tho any sugestions for that?

01-29-2006, 06:13 PM
on off valves are great ... i personally have one and i love it. Everytime you have something wrong with your gun you can just turn that valve on rather than unplugging the tank from your gun and plugging it back in to see if it works ... It's a great investment.
