Where is the LPR on the Geo?

Didn't see one, just wondering.

I dont think there is one, not necessary.

Update: Here is why I don't think it will. Quoted from that Geo .pdf file with all the geo info...
"Eclipse have developed the ISCIS (Integrated Solenoid Controlled Isolation System) custom-built
solenoid valve that not only functions to cycle the bolt mechanism like any other electropneumatic
marker, but also to electronically control the distribution of air to fill and
isolate the firing/dump chamber during every cycle."

So unless you had lp air and hp air going to the same noid (highly doubtful) then there is no need for an lpr

Hmmm, that sounds like snake oil, smoke and mirrors to me. I want to know more.

I would guess there is no LPR.

well it operates at 110psi so im guessing thats it from the reg acting like a reg and a lpr.

To answer the question...

The inline regulator of the Geo outputs a low enough pressure that it can feed the solenoid directly. The reg outputs 135psi max, the solenoid can use that just perfect...so...no lpr needed

Yes the Geo regulator has a different spring in it from the Ego. So it outputs a much lower pressure. Besides that the regs are the same.

and i imagine the solenoid can handle the operating pressure of the marker, further negating the need for extra parts

not sure there is much difference between the two springs. the specs for the 09 ego say it operates at about 160psi.

There is plenty of difference between the two springs; visually and in terms of performance. The effects of using the wrong spring in your Inline Regulator will be immediately obvious and doing so will invalidate your warranty. Suitable warnings are in both manuals.

wow...yeah, I guess so! At least it was from the Man himself....

I was assuming that the reg itself would have an operational range within that 110-160 area- I probably would have caught my mistake as soon as I got my new Geo, and actually read the manual, but maybe not. Mr Truter may have just saved me from being the first moron to blow up the solenoid within days of getting his hands on a Geo! How embarrassing would that have been?
