if you dont feel any extra resistance with your bolt moving through your chamber, most likely no. BUT, if enough debris gets into the ram...you will have a problem. clean it all out, lube your bolt orings with 1 or max 2 drops of triflow everyday of play (before you go out) and clean the gun after every use and youll be fine

I think it's fine. Played an NCPA on Saturday and the g6r shot +\- 3 allllll day and I have a 68/3000 and I shot like 4/5 pods and a hopper on around 400 psi . Btw does anyone get puffs of smoke out of their barrel when they shoot? I'm thinking I added a little too much triflow hahah.

Ok I've read a couple pages (I'm on my phone) but I didn't see anyone ask this question so if it's dumb just answer it don't have to lash out.

I have a lp poppit installed and I just put the slp reg on my tank. I noticed some inconsistency. Do they not pair up?

Please lmk. Thanks.

Well I put it back to stock settings. It was perfect before but I also cleaned the reg and re lubed it. I'll try it again this weekend. Hopefully it'll be good after half a case.

Not sure this was mentioned already or not, but this pic shows the LPR around 68 psi (tough to tell with the shadow, but roughly between the two tick marks representing 64 and 72). The reason I'm pointing this out is that many people seem all too focused on setting their LPR to extremely low values. It is likely that the OP was seeing good results from his LPR at 60 psi because it actually wasn't set that low.

IMHO if players want a smoother shot or a G6R that is a bit gentler on paint, then they should chrono lower (e.g. 285 vs 300) and/or increase the dwell slightly (reducing efficiency). The other option is using the LP poppet (reducing efficiency) while keeping similar-to-stock LPR/dwell settings. Each marker is slightly different but a good rule of thumb would be to keep the LPR around 70-75 psi for best consistency.

Anyway, this seems like a recurring theme and it might be best to lower people's expectations regarding LPR settings and convince them that lower isn't necessarily better.

Here's another post from earlier in this thread that seems to contain better advice regarding settings with the LP poppet:

1838 shots chrono'ing 285-300 using a Ninja 70/4500 tank with output set at 500psi (non slp). Hpr setting was 170, LPR setting was 70, Dwell was set at 6.

Dang thanks!
I just set everything back to stock. I do have another question. So if I'm increasing my lpr does that mean I might experience more kick? I want my marker to be as smooth as possible and consistent as possible. Efficiency is all the same to me it'll get more pods than my Geo no matter what lol

Lol well you know what I mean. I don't notice it when I'm playing but I'm just trying to learn what does what in terms of lpr hpr, and dwell. I know the purpose of them but what happens when I lower or increase the amounts is what I'm wondering. Would help with my victory to know these things.

Try sweetspotting your regs for the best performance.

Your mileage may vary, but setting the LPR to around 70-75 psi should provide a good balance of "smoothness" and consistency, particularly with the LP poppet. If you are able to lower your HPR and chrono at 285, the perceived amount of kick should be fairly low, especially with the new sleeveless G6R ram design which places the ram and bolt closer together. The propulsion of the ball is where most of the "kick" comes from, and there isn't much you can do about that except to shoot lighter paintballs (causing other issues) or add weight to the marker to increase inertia. Some of the "smoothest" shooting guns I've used are DMs since they have a bolt design that is "inline", low-ish pressure and the guns are not super lightweight. The result was a "stable" shot and very little barrel rise.

Good luck!
