My name is Philip and I'm a regaholic
It's a proper medical condition you know
Yep looks the same.
Can't work out what the channels above and below do, and the purpose of the ball bearing. Some sort of valve to let pressure off when the bottle is removed? Can't suss the top one.
looks like it could be a vent for the spring chamber mate .
incase one of the piston o rings lets air past .
That thing that the steyr don't have .
I suspect this is a 10 m gun , by the tiny amount of regged air volume
Are all the O rings HNBR 70 Shore?..... or is it a secret ;-) Looks like Steyr and FWB have the same supplier
I got a reply from Steyr when i asked about why they needed to change the reg design.
"This is not important for the customer to know"
I would guess so Dave
Certainly on the shore rating .
The std ones seem pretty soft and 70's work as replacements in most circumstances .
tell 'em your not a customer . just a nosey git
Iff vee tell you . Vee vill eff to keel you .................
Got the accent spot on...
I'm so glad I don't bugger about with regs...
has any one seen my compulsive liar tablets ....................
These reg things will drive you mad. Work of the devil I tell thee. Play with springers, much more predictable and easy to understand!
Very true but then springers have their own problems....
The main problem with regs. is that they 'should' work perfectly after all it's a simple system in theory. The difficulty is where to get the best fairy dust to make sure the damn things behave and don't pop an o-ring in the middle of a comp....
It’s all gone quiet. Has someone glued their reg up yet or sucked in a loo roll full of tape trying to get the adjuster to stay still?
I took the plunge.
Standard blue thread locker. (Cheap loctite knockoff).
Removed the adjuster and using a toothpick I put a very small amount of "loctite" on the threads inside the neck of the reg.
Let it sit for a minute and reassembled the reg. Tested pressure and fine tuned adjuster.
Checked for play in the adjuster after 30 minutes and it is perfect. I can still make small adjustments and it stays put.
How are you getting on with those new regs
Don't knock Gorilla glue. Got loads in my reg and it works fine
The glue or the reg.
heard the glued up ISP reg works more consistent than standard.
