Review: I got this LPR for my birthday a few months back, and was shocked by how small and light it was! This LPR is incredibly small (about 5cm in length and 1.5cm in width). I immediately went and put it on my gun. installation was a little hard, as the Microline hose fitting is directly between the QEVs on my Ram, meaning that there was a lot of fiddling with tweaseers and a small wrench to get it on. the fitting itself is a cool little feature, as it requires minimal effort to get the hose in and out of it (as opposed to having to push it onto a barb).

I decided to ring smart parts and just make sure what way to turn the end cap in order to lower or raise the output pressure. i was told to turn it counter-clockwise to lower the pressure. so with this new information, I screwed in the end cap (fully counter-clockwise), put my gun into training mode (just set the SON to 0) and gassed it up. "Pop Hiss" I blew my minifold on my cocking solenoid. Turns out the tech dude gave me bogus information.

After getting a new minifold from planet, i tried again, and this time managed to adjust the LPR correctly, and locked the end cap into place with the two set-screws. now there is virtually no kick to the marker. Re-charge rate is excellent, the marker re-cocked perfectly every time, even when i was hitting high rates of fire.
Conclusion: This product is an excellent, well-engineered piece of kit. i would highly recomment buying this product to anyone who is looking for an LPR upgrade. the LPR itself deserves 10/10, but i am deducting 1 point due to smart part's terrible tech service.

Peace out, Chris
