The advantage is that you can fine tune the operation of your gun and it makes it easier to adjust to different pressure. Also, it's pretty much necessary to have if you decide to go LP.

Less kick, more efficiency, less wear on internals and quieter. But it can also get quite expesive when you total up all of the parts.

Read this link it's everything you need to know about low pressure (http://www.ottersccustoms.com/lp.html)

what pressure are you running at? A spring kit may help you lower pressure without losing velocity and maybe lessen recoil. Also, what LP parts do you have, i.e.; valve & bolt?

I didnt see an aftermarket valve, so you cant be going too low on your pressure. If you want less kick, try getting an alama city bolt/striker. I heard they were light and cause less kick.

Sundragon makes a titanium striker that's Otter approved and will greatly reduce recoil, but requires a spring kit (which LP does anyway) to dial it in. Tou can also mod the stock striker but it's case hardened steel = lots of work.

hmm, im runnin at 180-200 usually. i have an aftermarket valve, i forgot the name tho. But my stabilizer works like a charm, and so does my vs front block with lpr gauge. Hmm i had 1 more thing but i just cant remember. THe thing i hate about low pressure is that he lower the pressure of the gun, the more volume of gas your gonna need, so in some cases, there is a very fine line between gas saver, and gas hog, so if ur gonna go lp, you needa watch for that

Do you still have the stock striker? If you do..hows the kick? ;)

yea i have the stock stryker, but i hmm lets just say i "lightened it", and i put the gun down, and tapped the trigger with a ruler, and the gun went mack 2.3mm..so not a big deal

Anything lower than 600 can be considered LP. Going too low does create it's own problems and can cross over the line of efficiency. Each marker seems to have it's own sweet spot, pressure wise.

yea true, 200 is my sweet spot, you should try it..I get about 1200 shots off a peanut, so thats good enough and my kickback is 2.3mm
