Review: You can't buy the MQ from the site yet. You have to go the the cocker forums on PBnation and pm Ronin. He will get you on the pre-order list. I waited 6 months before I got my valve.

You have to have a valve tool to get your old valve out. Once you take out all of you stock internals, you just slide it right in.

My valve was a newer one. I could not get it to shoot below 350fps when I got it. I had to take out a little white spacer in the noid. That only got it down to 300fps. Then I played with my inline pressure and my SON value and I got it to just under 300.

After I installed it, my guns shot ropes with ease. It was very quiet, almost no kick, no bounce. After playing with my timing I got the following settings-
Son-4 (this is your dwell)
Cdel-5 (this controls blow back)
Con-35 (this is your load time)
Cto-50 (load time with eye on)
Coff-30 (close time/ controls drop off)
Inline pressure ~ 300psi
LPR 2 turns past minimum

I had massive blow back even when I raised my Son to 30, but I think it may be my bolt.
The lowest Con time I could get was 30 consistently with my Reloader on setting 3 so I added 5.
The lowest Coff time I could get with out drop off was 30.
If you add Cdel+Conn+Coff then divide 1000 by the sum you get your max bps.

Before I got the MQ I could use the following settings(very conservative)with no problem

Make sure the MQ is compatible with your cocker before you buy it. Some non WGP bodes do not work. Mini body cockers have a hard time getting to higher velocities, but with the newer version I think they solved the problem.
MAKE SURE YOU DON'T CUT YOU WIRES WHEN INSTALLING THE VALVE, they are very thin and will shear off when you turn your IVG.

Conclusion: One of the best upgrades for a cocker.
Buy it if you love your cocker.
The people at PBX are very nice and have excellent customer service.

to get good efficiency with the mQ, like any other cocker, you have to sweetspot it. set the son to like 1 or so (really low), and turn the reg up until the velocity peaks and begins to fall. if you don't get to 280, raise the son and repeat.

Will the mQ even function at SON 1?

the people at pbx dont respond to anything. They arent even producing anymore valves.

you say not to over tighten the cocking rod to avoid damaging the solenoid...but the mq valves job is to shoot and recock the gun, so why would u even put a cocking rod in if u don't need to?
i've seen people with mq'd cockers with no cocking rods, and no they weren't internal cocking karni's and such they actually needed a cocking rod before the addition of the mq, like cockers should lol.
