I have a Ninja 68/45.
Please help me out with this. I want to know what I'd need to buy with the marker so I can shoot it with my tank.
Your brand new G6R will come with a QC card. It will have the air pressures its set and the velocity it was shooting when it left BLAST.
This is why a pressure tester is recommended. A Tester will allow you to set the marker back to factory pressures should take it apart and maintain it. However it's not the only way to make it shoot. Lurker method will work fine without a tester.
Your Ninja 68/4500 will be fine. Even better if its a LP or the shims removed to make it LP. Slp's are great but not necessary. G6Rs will shoot on HP but you have more of a chance of blowing out an Oring. All will fire with HP but eventually you may have leaks. I should also mention just about all modern markers shoot on LP and most SLP. So having an HP is almost obsolete for modern applications. Just remove the shims from your Ninja Reg and shoot everything.
