Video transcript: so when you receive your Wraith arrow these are the basically the parts that you’re gonna get have your tank cover the stock stock face the regulator hardpoint adapter and then a toolkit that has a couple fittings your adjustment allen wrench as well as some phone rings which we don’t have pictured here first step in doing this installation is to install the hardpoint adapter so let’s go ahead and do that the next step is going to be to remove the stock buffer tube and to install the Aero parts now in this case we already have a race co2 on this gun but it works exactly the same way you need an Armorer’s wrench once done thread the buffer tube from the receiver then go ahead and separate the upper and lower receiver here you would have already done when you install the hardpoint now from our stock buffer tube we are going to need our castle nut that’s really the only thing we need from the stock buffer tube assembly take your regulator thread it into the back of the receiver now we want to thread it in as far as we can without protruding past the end here and so that you’re not your slot on the bottom of the regulator faces the bottom next we’re going to reinstall the detent and spring if those came out while you were working on the gun now we’re going to take the base notice there is a tab that lines up with the slot on the bottom of the regulator I’m just gonna slide that over pressing the spring for the detent the body pin detent down into the body of the gun making sure that we don’t bend it now we’re going to take our castle nut slide that over the regulator and thread that on to the gun now once we have snugged up the castle nut we’re gonna want to set it you can’t very well use the the armours wrench on this just because of the body here but what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna take a punch or in this case we’re just using an allen key and we’re gonna set it in the notch and we’re just gonna drive drive that around give it a little bit of tighten down make sure that you don’t drive down into the threads of the regulator okay that should be good and snug now and at this point we’re really installed we’ve got to do is top our pins we recommend from time to time putting a little bit of lubricant on the hard pointed after at the back there slide everything together good to go soccer just quickly about the stock here how this works is there’s a button on the bottom which releases the stock hey this is done for a couple of reasons one if you’re using an external airline rather than a tank here it allows you to use this as a multi-position collapsible stock so you can actually run an a si adapter on the back of the regulator here we run a remote line to a tank and run this as a collapsible stock if you so choose but in addition it lets us keep the design more streamlined because in order to install the tank you just push the button and pull the stock out and then we’ll take the tank thread it in take your stock slide it back on now let’s talk about tanks real quickly if you want to use the tank cover you are going to need to use a tank that has a rotatable collar for the threads like this ninja does what we can do is we can loosen up the screws that hold it in place you can actually install it like this then loosen those screws that hold it in place and then you would be able to rotate it until your eye your gauge is on the top surface because what we want is we want it rotated like this so when the tank cover goes on your gauge shows up right like that goes through this opening okay so that’s what we’re that’s what we’re going for here if you don’t particularly care about the the tank cover then most any tank will work you will just end up rotated different positions and you will almost certainly be able to find a position such that you don’t run into the the legs here with either the gauge or the fitting we’ve never really been had any trouble with that but do keep in mind if you want to use the tank cover you will want a type of tank that has an an indexable collar there so tournament lock is sliding collar here just like standard storm regulator in order to adjust the pressure you’re gonna slide it up use an allen key counterclockwise increases the pressure clockwise decreases the pressure once your chronoed where you need to be slide the collar down and you can put a zip tie around this area do note that in order to install the tank cover you will want this slid down then it all snaps together also notice that there is a QD sling point works with standard and QD style slings on the bottom side of the of the base here alright guys that’s it for today I hope that was helpful to you if you have any questions about how to install your wraith Aero setup tuning anything like that be sure to leave us a comment in the comment section below and be sure to check out the rest of the videos on MTW for tuning installation of various other modules and accessories as well
