Can a Ninja SLP's output pressure be increased?

Yes or no?

Thanks.

No.
The SLP and SMP regs can not be adjusted. The only regulator in the 'Super' line that can be adjusted is the SHP which can be set from 900-1100 psi and nothing other then that range.

So it's not like I could buy pistons or shims or something from Ninja to up the pressure?

No.
If you want adjustable output pressure just buy the standard or ultralight regulator. Those are adjustable from HP down to LP all by removing or adding the shims that come with the regulator.

Well thats a load of crap, their most expensive reg not being adjustable.

Thanks for letting me know.

It's a specialized reg meant for extremely low pressures. It's meant to be fixed output because some players do not feel comfortable opening the regulator themselves to adjust the pressure and to achieve the optimal pressure for markers like the G6r and Victory to give them extra efficiency.
Just get a standard ninja reg then, fully adjustable and extremely affordable. Cheaper then most marker HPRs.

This is correct, the SLP, SHP, and the now discontinued SMP are part of the GS series of regulators which stands for Gun Specific so we have them set at a specific pressure from the factory. The SLP is factory set at 300psi for super low pressure applications which we only recommend you use on G6R's or Victory markers. Being that it is made for a specific application the regulator is not adjustable.

However our standard Ninja regulator is adjustable from 450psi to 800psi and our new Ninja PRO reg is adjustable between the same range however it meets the SMP 550psi rating as well as we incorporated that into the new regulator.

So it's not even like I could buy shims from you guys and up the pressure?

We don't recommend that as they are completely different builds and pressure tested as such from the factory to meet that exact pressure rating.

What other parts would need replacing too to make it run safely? Reason I'm asking is because I plan on using it with an Autococker so the lowest output I could use would probably be around 400-500psi.

That is why for guns that run on slp are usually sold with the reg as well.

I would trade it for the reg you need. Either on here or try your local shop.

I added 2 silver shims to my slp, and it had to up pressure because I have a g6r and a machine vapor, the g6r works flawless with the slp. The only problem is I have to use the same tank for my vapor, I tried the slp without shims and I was experiencing drop off, so I decided to experiment, I added the 2 silver shims and went to my filling station, shot about 900 psi into the tank(did this just incase something went wrong) and it held air perfectly, screwed the tank on my vapor and walla, no drop off. To be honest I have no idea what pressure it's outputting but I assume that 1 shim adds about 100psi by looking at other ninja reg charts, the output of the slp is 275 so I assume that my tank is outputing 475 at this point, I am going to try it with one shim(375psi hopefully) and see if it can recharge fast enough and keep it consistent over the chrono, if so, I've found my fix, this seems to work fine, with no problems, I would say try it, find some shims and see what happens.

What part about how they are Gun Specific are you not getting. Not trying to be rude here, but they are specific to the Bob Long G6R and Victory, just like the SHP is specific to Mags and Tippmanns with RT. They didn't just come up with a different spring and shim set up, they engineered them specifically to work with the output pressures that they work with. I understand that money is probably tight, but you really do need to look into buying another tank or even just a reg, since you would have to make sure that your tank is empty before opening up the reg just to switch over your output pressure, to work with your Autococker.

I'm sorry, but Tabris has a clue about what he is talking about, and just because he and Rob didn't give you the answer that you are looking for does not make them wrong. Please accept that when they both tell you not to do something, it's for your safety, specifically in this case, that they are telling you that.

That sounds dangerous to me. I would highly recommend not doing that.

1) This will void your warranty
2) Which silver shims did you add? The only shims we offer in our rebuild kit are the silver shims which go inside the reg with the coil spring design, not the belleville springs found in the PRO regulators
3) Its not as easy as you mention above. Not every single person will get the exact same outputs doing what you did above. Reason is because we have to stress relieve springs to get them to read correctly and not every spring is relieved the same way

glad to see you were able to get it to work without blowing the markers seals up. I would love to know what your output pressure is with this configuration

If its going to void the warranty I guess ill just removed it, and it's one of the silver shims that are in the ninja ultralight regs. I will try and find what the output pressure is.
