Default Pneu setup

As requested, a brief rundown of what I did with pics.



Trigger pin: .947 (aluminum nails work great for this)
MSV arm: 1.16 (rough measurement. Bends are not consistant between units)

*leave both a little long for final trimming.

Setting the trigger (do this before anything!!):

Turn the safety on. Turn the top trigger set screw until the trigger hits the safety. Back it off enough so that the safety operates. Install one Emag magnet for now.

Insert trigger rod so that it is against the trigger and trim flush with the frame in the inside. This is critical as there is little room left and if the pin is to short, the trigger pull goes to hell.

Install the MSV loosely. Hook up Microrock (the point of all this) and finish fittings and asa. Gas it up. Turn up Microrock until the piston moves, but dose not fire (it will bounce off the sear).

Rotate the msv until it vents air. Rotate back until it stops and a smidge more to taste.

Bring up the Microrock until it fires reliability. May have to retune once reg brakes in, tempature changes, etc......







Quite a bit of this is very redundant to any one who has set one up before. I am just going through my paces (probably missed something)

Feel free to comment.

I've got a pic of mine that Steve is modding for me on my phone.
It looks purdy I will post up pics once it is done and back in my loving hands!

Dumb question:

Should the ram be angled down or parallel with the mag body?

I've seen them installed both ways, just wondering.

Still need to pick up fresh lp line for mine to get it together... been busy doing other stuff.

From my experience, either works quite well so long as it is aimed towards the bottom. (sorry, no magic). That one aims downwards to give the hose a bit more clearance (can be a pinch point).

I have my MPA-3 resting on the "shelf" and keep it fairly level.
Cyberave's How-to (for DIY frames) recommends angling it down to give more leverage against the sear leg.
Personally, I think that difference in where the ram hits between the two options is not all that significant and I find it easier to just use the shelf as my guide.

I also ran into a snag where I had the MPA angled too much and it ended up obstructing the sear where the front pivots downward. That one took me a little while to figure out what I did wrong

I tried to use the shelf on my first install, but had a hard time running the lines up to my rail... was moot anyway since the lines pretty much disintegrated and had torn themselves off every nipple and cracked at every bend within hours.

Being able to angle it will be better to get the lp lines to clear!

The line in the cyberave kit is junk. Hit up Mag79 for some nice fresh line. I got a pneu it from him and his stuff was top notch. The parts (including magnet mod) were very well put together.
