    Hi Dave, I put an FAC length cylinder on mine, about £35, with the prospect of getting it regged. Then I found out there was only a 4fps spread on it so didn't bother. With the extra length cylinder it was doing a minimum 80 shots. Neil.

    Holly, been there & tried that, no need for a reg, just get the hammer rail polished & the firing pin while it's apart, set it up & away she goes... I also run a lighter hammer in mine as well :)
    I had a Ben Taylor reg fitted, waste of £200 .....

    Holly, you don't get many more shots from a regged MPR, maybe 10 more.
    The velocity curve is already very flat on the MPR. Remember the reg takes some space in the cilinder and reduces the usable air volume. The only advantage of the reg (I've got an Audrius in my S400) is that you loose the velocity spread/curve you normally have. But to get a good shot count from the regged rifle you also need to tune the hammerspring, the firing pot, valve spring and for best results also the hammer. A lot of work for a few more shots. Especially for the MPR I would not do it. You risk a reg failure or a leak on an otherwise perfectly reliable rifle. The FAC air cilinder is the better option if you can handle the extra weight at the front.

    Hi Holly,
    I have a BTAS regged 400 and two non regged MPR's.

    The BTAS regged gun gets 110 from a 190 bar fill before coming off the reg with a lightweight hammer.
    they all get approx 5 or 6 fps shot to shot.
    The MPR's as you know will do at least 50 good shots or 70 to 80 useable if practicing although 170 bar fill is plenty as you know.
    I would not bother to be honest either.

    If you do decide to regg then Tench or Airmasters would be my choice.

    Dean.

    Fac

    Right , sounds good , but where can you get a FAC cylinder ?

    I set up the wifes MPR today on our range . now i had a good S200 for a year , so i know how they shoot . i think the MPR is easily a match for that barrel . i gotta say i was surprised by it . i set it up for left and right on a big puddle . up beyond that is a 60 gallon drum at 50 yards . took a few shots to get it on cos the rifle does jump at 780 fps .but once on it put three shots touching ( off the bench ) on the zero range with a following wind , it hit every thing on there . i reckon with a weight towards the front of the rail , you would be able to see the pellet in flight . an fac tube would help to that end . hat's off to you Mr Air Arms . good job done ??? HOLLY:):D
