Thanks!
I believe they are 3/8 NPT threaded and just pick what you like off McMaster Carr? I have to get around to doing this myself so hopefully someone else chimes in on this.

Guess that's why a lot of people complain about their guns not shooting correctly

Also just as an aside - anyone have experience with the critical G6R trigger?

I've been thinking of getting one to try out since I'm not a huge fan of the stock trigger.

Two words. Power Saber. Best quality trigger I've ever owned and the thing rips. Also look at the Power Kodachi, as Rudz will vouch for that as his preference.

LPR and HPR ranges? I was thinking 0-160 and 0-400, but maybe less for a little more accuracy? 2", 1/8 NPT steel case?

Those ranges are perfect


And yes I like the Kodachi POWER triggers

Thanks!
get these
http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Hydrauli...item3a7679e312

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Hydrauli...#ht_500wt_1287


then go to your hardware store, ask them what fittings you need to get the 1/4th NPT on those gauges and get them down to 1/8th NPT. make sure that while youre at the hardware store, grab a small bottle of blue loctite.

if price is not an issue, get these http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brass-Hex-Ad...t_1650wt_ 924

remove the stock gauges with a pair of pliers or whatever is accesable to you, they shouldnt take too much to pull out. put loctite on the threads on all the fittings and put them on the pressure tester.put loctite on the gauges and screw them on. I suggest you do 1 at time(LPR then HPR) so that you dont mix up the sides.

you should end up with something that looks like this


i didnt do the high pressure side since the accuracy was good enough and im cheap

When you have to add the adapter it gets really long. So that's why I use a quick disconnect

I just use gauges that fit right in and are high quality. No point in needed adapters or anything.

i think the industry standard is 1/4th npt for gauges, youll find the widest selection of gauges with 1/4th npt

Ever been on mcmaster.com? More then enough of a wide selection of gauges with Accuracy: 2% mid scale.. Very good selection.

But to each there own not like it matters so long as it works. Who cares right?

last time i checked mcmaster didnt have liquid filled for a reasonable price.obviously comes down to preference, but i like to read my gauges without bringing the gauge to my face or squinting

all the gauges that mcmaster carr has that have liquid filled and are 1-100 psi all cost above 25 bucks

Super Stanchy on MCB is your best bet for freak boring, and you should deffinetly be able to bore the .691 barrel.

I think I've moved from super sad to angry today.

But in high hopes I won't hulk smash anything eigen valve delay related as a means to have a scapegoat to be mad at and vent.

instead. I'll try to be be happy that I'm blessed enough to be able to afford such a nice marker. and not have to regard an etek3 as a super sweet new gun. #countyourblessings #letthehealingbegin

Guess I will consider a new phone soon as the guy who stole my stuff still hasn't bothered to do the right thing and return it.

Microsoft sounds like they want to step up their game with windows phone 8 but I doubt I would enjoy it as much as androids galaxysIII.
