Which valve to use?
I recently finished my Sniper and I'm now wanting to swap my stock valve for something that would help me lower my operating pressure (and hopefully quiet it some more, too).
I will be running the Sniper off compressed air, as I'm using a post 2k body at the moment.
I was thinking the AKA Tornado with a set of Maddman springs.
ALSO on the other end of the spectrum, for my electro cocker build, what valve would you guys recommend for a high performance build. (and as for now, I'm steering clear of the MQ, although that would be cool )

That being said the AKA Tornado valve is very nice. I've used the following with good result at low pressure:
1 - Stock 2K+
2 - Rat 3.16
3 - AKA Tornado
4 - CCM lower tube kit
To lower your pressure you are going to have to re-spring you valve and main spring. Might even have to find a heavier hammer though normally you do not have too. If you are not experienced in re-springing/tuning a sniper follow the link below, this is how I do it

I have a Phantom
leave the stock valve in, if you want less sound signature, switch over to CO2 and run a regulator.
Problem with a light spring setup is the hammer bounce or valve farting, it can be more annoying than a loud signature.
$$$ trumps dibs every single time!!!
