Review: After seeing this product in action at my local paintball field I decided to join the club.

I ordered online from JDS and received promptly. You must go to the website for full installation directions since the directions that the LPR came packaged with are vague.

First I followed my proto matrix manual on removing the stock reg. Pretty simple no problems. It was supposed to be very simple to install the JDS LPR, however I ran into a bunch of problems.

First I tried to simply screw it in but it only went 3/4 of the way and got stuck in the threads. I soon figured out that the problem was the silver inset screw. It was sitting to high on the LPR and was hitting my proto threads. So I busted out my trusty dremmel and grinded the silver screw down flush with the body. Now I tried to reinsert it back in to the gun. Apparently I messed up the threads on the JDS LPR from my first attempt caused by that inset screw. So I busted out with the dremmel again and grinded all the threads off the JDS LPR flush with the body. Now it slid right in no problem. Very imprortant to line up the proto set screw with the groove on the JDS LPR, since without threads it would shoot out like a rocket when I gassed it up.

I lined everything up and tightly scewed the proto set screw down. I was up set that with the problems I had getting this thing on my proto. I scratched the anno on the JDS LPR up pretty good. A nice big sticker fixed that little oops.

Now everything works fine. I adjusted the pressure on the JDS LPR a bit past factory set. I witnessed a huge improvement. My proto is very quiet now. no drop off at all, so far no other problems. I need to play a few more games to get an accurate count for just how air efficient it is, I'll be back to update this review soon.

One more thing, Some people have said that this looks ugly on the proto. In my opinion I like the look of it.

I like my proto to kick @SS.
I could really care less if it looks pretty.

Conclusion: Be very careful installing this product. I was lucky I didn't strip the threads on my proto.
If you don't know how to use a dremmel let someone who does do it for you.

I am happy with this product and would recommend it. I gave it a 9 out of ten for the install problems.
Rating:
9 out of 10

What the hell? Are you out of your friggin mind? Who would do that? I consider myself to be somewhat of an airsmith and i would never take a dremel to the threads of a regulator. You are endangering other players by just counting on a set screw to hold on the reg, what if the screw comes loose and hits another player in the back of the head?

I check my gun, tighten any loose screws, and lube my marker at the end of each day of play. I've played several games and I have had no problems. The set screw sits very secure. I personally would not recommend anyone that doesn't know what they are doing attempt this. I simply posted my experience installing this product.

I have also aired up my marker and loosened the set screw just to see what would happen. The reg does shoot out like a rocket but does not fly fast or hard enough to cause any harm to players close to it. Once the pressure pops behind it, it looses its velocity immediately.
