There isn't anything to be done to it, there is a guy on here that sell the 1/2 back as an adapter and not as a fully functional reg, you just need to supply your own reg.

Well for an x-valve I believe you need to remove the reg pin assembly to get the cap to screw on, not sure if the hole needs to be plugged or if the cap can just be loctited on. I will let you guys know as soon as I get the cap fixed.

I think its Deus Machina, or something similar. I almost got one last year when I had this gun. Looks like a brother from another mother to sslecyk's

very cool! i like how you cut the front and back of the body makes it look really unique.

do you know what psi you're running at? i'd be curious to know at what pressure the valve resets the sear

so who makes these valve caps? i may try and pick one up

Deus Machina is making the cap.

I'm going to start the input at 350 or so on the sidewinder and then keep cranking it up until the marker fires how I want it to...probably around 400 or so

I'd like to see how the Sidewinder and Stabilizer compare to each other for this type of setup.
I've always wanted to try something like this but never got around to piecing things together.

Oh, wow. Didn't know there was quite so much of an interest. That's going to be a nice gun. Gonna rival the mini for size there, sslycek. Such a shame AGD isn't in the limelight any more.

Yes, the reg pin needs removed. I should have stated that before, but I figure it'd become obvious. You should be able to just leave the hole as-is, unless it's different than a stainless valve or I'm much mistaken. And once everything is worked out, a drop or two of loctite would be a good idea. Either way, I do try to machine the O-ring groove .005" less deep than stock, for a bit more friction there.

Anyone that does something like this still needs a reg somewhere in the line. I can't stress that enough. The math says the aluminum caps can withstand 800PSI pressures, but there's no such thing as too careful, and gods know what else will happen to an unregged 'mag.

I'll be making a run of these as soon as I can get the appropriate time. My lathe isn't exactly a high-production piece.

I'll have to check out the X-valve threads, too. The cap fits perfect on my stainless one. I'll have to make a dummy or find a front portion for a run of these.

Anyway, the old pictures, that I think sslycek ran across...

The prototype mounted on a semi-custom body


And a clearer comparison to the reg.



The prototype was .15" or .2" long, current ones are .25" to give more room for a slot or hole for installation. And for comparison against the stainless reg half, according to my uncalibrated right hand, the cap weighs about as much as a quarter. I wish I had a scale between total human weight and 1-100 grains, to verify.
