Default Advice for Upgrades

Even though I'm a noobie, I can't help but want to upgrade my marker. I've done a lot of the basics, but I'm already considering doing more. The problem is that I don't completely understand what parts I should get and what exactly they do for performance. The parts that I am considering are:

front block with low pressure chamber & gauge
foregrip/regulator
on/off ASA
shim kit vs spring kit (is one better than the other?)

What exactly do each of these components do? Sorry if these seem like dumb questions, but remember....I'm a noobie There are so many different manufacturers for all of these parts that I'm confused as to which ones I should get. Any recommendations/advice?

What reg are you look at now?
If none, I'd look into a cp shorty or sidewinder.

Also, I read here that someone is selling chips for the Tadao board for like $15. Who's selling? I'm ready to buy!

To be honest, I'm not looking at any particular reg because I don't really know what it does or which ones are compatible with the VS2

With a new front block, like the one you said you were looking at, all regs will work with it.

What are my options for the front block? The only one that I have found is the one made by Trinity. I checked on the CP website and they don't make one (at least I couldn't find one).

i have the tadao chips for ya

and personally i wouldnt waste money on the trinity front block, i would just get the red adapter and then another reg and on/off

i personally like the cp regs....work great, easy to maintain and rebuild....


best of luck!!

you don't need a spring kit for it. it's already low pressure. get a cp reg with a trinity front block. get a q-lock feedneck. maybe get a board later on

Thanks for everyone's advice. I went with the CP shorty reg & CP pro mini on/off ASA. I passed on the Trinity front block....for now. Also, I found this guy that has some nice macroline fittings. Check it out.
