Also I'm a timmy owner, and with timmies theres always a concern with overpresureizing the noids...well i noticed that throught the manual it says that the sidewinder has a adjustment that you move out-word to let more presure in. So should I keep the sidewinder allen adjustment as far [in] as i could to make sure that I dont blow a noid...then slowly bring the set screw [out] when i have the tank hooked up?
And last...sence theres no guage,how do i know just were to set the sidewinder to? What should be a good chrono....I was told the SCM is set at 72.
Well, if I had the time to fully comprehend your question, I might be able to add a little more, but here is what I can tell you now. When setting up the marker, you should set the Sidewinder flush with the base of the reg. This is roughly 200psi.
You do set the input pressure with the Sidewinder and set the SCM as the LPR. Don't worry about the valve.
You won't have to fear overpressurizing your noids, just as long as you set the Sidewinder flush with the bottom of the reg. This should avoid any disasters.
With the Sidewinder set screw flush, you should be getting something around 290 fps but this is of course dependent on many variables. Just go chrono before you shoot anybody.
And don't forget that the break-in period will greatly affect the performance of the SCM. Make sure oyu have properly broken in the LPR and your viking before you go about fine tuning it.
Good Luck, tippy
