What do i need to install this...
 
ok I ahven't been on these forums for quite some time now. I just recently purchased a vs2 and am looking to upgrade the regulator. I want to put this on it http://store.customproducts.us/index.cfm?fuseaction=catalog.prodInfo&productID=22 &categoryID=4.

So my question is what will I need to install this on my stock Spyder Vs2. I have been hearing you need a new asa and all that stuff but I don't know exactly what you need. So can someone just tell me exactly what I need to install this on my gun.

Thanks,
Paintmaster

What you are considering buying is called a CP shorty.
If you are using HPA id suggest getting macro fittings and getting a new ASA.
IF you are using C02 you will still need a new asa, but id suggest using the steel braided hose

I will be using HPA.
So what your saying I will need is an ASA, new Macro fittings, and Macro line?

And a new fitting for the front block. The stock front block uses backasswards "proprietary" threading, and you'll need to get something like this to make it for the correct threads.

If you get a new regulator, then the stock ASA/reg might have enough obstructions when not used as a regulator to restrict the flow to the new regulator, thus starving your marker and killing recharge rates at high ROF's. Macroline is merely a preference choice, but keep in mind that you will need to get a new hose anyways (the threading for the stock hose is metric and the threading for everything else is NPT). HobbyHorse here and on PBNation can hook you up with a good deal on some macro, I believe it was like $12 or something for a complete kit after his flat rate shipping. Here's a link to his website.

you need to either use a reg adapter for the stock vertical adapter or purchase a new vertical adapter (make sure it's made for the vs markers)...
