quick question on my g6r

so i recently acquired my first g6r in a trade, opened the box only to find that the sheet from the factory that shows my suggested hpr and lpr settings (along with the factory fps) is missing. so, what would you suggest to set my hpr and lpr at for the quietest, smoothest shot possible?
Idk if you need to know this, but the tank i will be using is a 68/45 with a ninja pro slp reg.
g6r is also bone stock.

70ish lpr, 160hpr then increase hpr until it shoots at needed velocity.

OH OH OH! I got an idea! Get a pressure tester, put it on, and adjust the pressures as needed!

All markers are different, get a tester and play with yours until you find your "sweetspot"

You don't need a pressure tester to sweetspot your regs. You will just want it to make sure your pressures aren't too high.
Also, you can't sweetspot your regs with the pressure tester on, as you need to shoot paint over a chrono to do that. You can't put a barrel on with the pressure tester on.

So here is my idea. Use the sweetspot method up in the stickies so you can play until you get your pressure tester and new gauges in. Then when that happens, double check your pressures (shouldn't be at dangerous levels if you did the sweetspot method properly)

Good catch on my comment. I shouldn't post here hungover.

My advice still stands though, get a pressure tester

Still though, even if you pressure test and sweet spot the regs, it's good to have a baseline to work from.

Start your LPR around 75 and HPR around 190 psi. You may want to go up or down from there to reach velocity and/or get a smoother shot, but the pressures I posted are a good starting point.

no need to be like that. first bob long purchase, and i had little to no knowledge of how to handle pressures on it.
also, thanks very much guys, got it sweetspotted and shooting like a boss. very happy with the marker.

how come some people can sweetspot their regs within two days and get things working hunky dory, (like this OP, well done sir, well done!) and then others have to have a frustrating week-long discussion on how step number X goes?

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

General education, reading comprehension, age and experience all play a big part in a persons ability to read and understand instructions. Not to mention common sense.... Everyone learns a different way and some people just don't get written instructions. I have had some great mechanics work under me that just simply couldn't understand a manual. But if you let them watch you do it once, they could do it like they have done it a million times.
