75bar is quite low isn't it?

Most commercial full 12ftlber's run around 90bar reg pressure IIRC.

Yes, it is low but that is just the figure it arrived at after doing some adjustments. In have yet to determine how much i have to turn the adjust screw for any given bar reading eg. .005 thou , .010 thou etc.. i reckon 80 bar might give me a good enough pressure. I only need 10fpe for shooting rats. Remember i have to empty the cylinder and remove everything just to make one small alteration. Very time and air consuming , not to mention potentially causing damage to the o rings as they have to pass over threads in the cylinder.

Yeah........time and air consuming.......that always seems the way of things when tweaking PCP's.

It is very probable that You'd need less reg pressure if chasing 'only' 10ftlbs....as I've said the reg'd 12ftlber's I have all seem to be set around the 90bar mark.

Good luck with it Mel....if you get fed up walk away for a few hours or days until you are fresh.....working when frustrated with summat rarely ends well. ;)

Yeah, that,s what i,m doing. I,ll have another go tomorrow. Also, given the problems I had with the 3d printed mags i,m going to ask my dealer friend if I can try some of the Chinese mags he stocks. I,m sure i could get at least one to fit.

Yes, my mate has lent me one but, unfortunately the hole through which the probe passes is too high. And i can,t remove any material from the breech assembly. Poo. I re set the reg again and now it is sitting at 90 bar. Over a 14 hour period it crept up 10 bar but from what i can gather , this is a common occurrence with a lot of regs. This is why no doubt a lot of shooters taking part in FT or HFT fire off a couple of blank shots before competing . I,ve yet to fit it to the rifle and assess the consistency.

Bummer about the mags.

Yes regs can creep.......I would too if I was trying to hold back as much as 300bar!!

If at all possible, I've learned the hard way to always fire off a few shoots (PCP or springer) before a proper hunting. zeroing or target session, just to the wake the rifle up and get everything moving again.

Before starting this practice, I once had a tasty looking bunny in my crosshairs, but when I fired, the rifle (an FX2000) just farted and the pellet fell way short of the target. I hadn't noticed the inlet valve had leaked and the pressure had dropped until it only had about 30bar left in it. Gutted, end of my day's hunting trip.

Lesson learned....I now check the rifle's operation before venturing out on every foray.

Well that didn,t work. It turned out to be too erratic. Oh well, i,ll try making a new one from scratch.
