Review: The Respirator has been a very well developed product by Evil unlike their delrin bolt which was disasterous. The Respirator is the solenoid mod, valve cap, and regulator all in one part, which is very convenient and makes installation a little more "graceful."

Installing this can be a pain for the impulse owners that have the screw for locking down tapeworms, which needs to be removed and re-installed with red loctite. Evil sends you the proper instuctions for setting up the respirator or you can get them from their web site. Installation usually requires a 300psi guage, the respirator should not be higher than 160psi. If you need it that high or higher and your maxflow is at 200psi, your impulse probably needs some tuning and/or cleaning..

I didn't think it was that good looking, but it is fairly well designed except for one thing, it has very little volume. This problem is easily fixed by doing the following:
Having a 200psi inlet on your maxflow
Having an aftermarket valve such as the evil valve or the new designz valve
Having a very full flow from your tank (screw it in all the way)

When you have so little volume, the recharge of respirator is key, which is why the 200psi is nessisary, but the valve is key. A valve that has tremendously good airflow is so important, because it will give your shots the velocity they need and will actually recharge faster. I recommend the new designz valve because you don't need a valve spring increasing the volume. Evil valves have a bit of janky parts that need to be fitted which take up precious volume, but they do work well.

WIth my marker, I have a 100psi solenoid operating pressure and my maxflow is at 200psi. I shoot consistantly with reduced recoil and increased accuracy and air effeciency.
Conclusion: Product is around $100, but LPRs cost money. All regulators do. Get the new designz valve with this thing and it will recharge super fast, even at 16+ balls a second. Excellent product from EVIL.
