There are 2 different reg housings one for the Alias and one for the Empire, they are identical, except for one difference. The Empire is like all previous reg housings, the doubles and singles from the classic to the species, they're all interchangeable, they all use a 10/32 buttonhead hex screw to be secured onto the body. The Alias on they other hand is not tapped, it is held into place by a set/grub screw, the bodies on Alias generation markers are tapped/threaded to accept the grub screw.
For anybody looking to update their Pre-Alias bodied Intimidators, look for the Empire reghousings, it's bolt on with no modifications needed.

so i wouldnt be able to put this on without modification...it looks like it has the proper whole already in it,if you look right next to the first o-ring next to the body there is a whole there.So can i use this one?

No, he's saying this:

On Alias, the body it self is threaded, and the screw just goes into the hole, holding the housing in place.

On Empires, the housing itself is threaded.

if you use the Alias one you will need to tap

if you use the empire one you will not need to tap

YES!!!

i am having the same problem...i couldnt find an empire lpr block, so i bought an alias lpr block...

the alias lpr does not have a hole for the 10/32 skrew like the stock one does...it just has a slight indention so that u can use a set/stop skrew on it, but only works in conjunction w/ the alias body...because the alias body is threaded/tappd, where as all older models are not...

the only way u can put an alias lpr block on an older model intimidator is if u tap the body of the gun to fit stop/set skrew...

or...if u tap the reg itself w/ 10/32 threads so u can use ur stock skrew...

lol i tried that /\...guess i did it wrong, LOL.

so basically the only way i can do it now, is if i do a bigger skrew than 10/32 or i ask someone to tap my body for the set skrew...cus i dont wanna mess up my body...id rather mess up my $50 doller lpr block than my $200+ body...lol
