View Full Version : Ok I'm still lost here

06-17-2006, 04:42 PM
So I'm still stumped with my new CIP assault block, Palmer regulator, and gauge.

Now the Palmer comes stock set at 400 psi. Ok, I got that. When I aired up the gun that seemed about right. So then I turned it up to 800. Well, now the damn thing fluctuates all the time. Like just now, I aired it up. It said 400 psi. So, I shoot off a couple of rounds and all of a sudden it goes up to 500. Shoot some more, well it starts dropping back off to 400.

The one time I tried to make it go back to 800 didn't work well. I turned it up and then after some shots the gauge started reading 900 or so. So then I had to turn it back down.

Am I doing things all wrong here? I also hope I didn't loose anybody. It seems kinda hard to explain. Thanks!

How does your guys/gals regulators work for you?

Disconnect your air line and put a few drops of marker oil in. Reconnect the air line and air up. fire a few rounds and see if this helps. Mine did the same thing. This settled mine right down.

CO2 or compressed air?

Was it damp or cold out? Because when I was using CO2 it did that alot in woods ball. When I started a game, it would be at 600 ish, then it would jump to 700, then around 600 again, and at the end of the game it was at 700 again haha. But yeah, try the oil. Just dont put alot in...

Ok guys thank! It wasn't cold out, but then again I know how CO2 goes. I will try the tiny drop of oil.

You need to break the reg in before it will become consistent. Most all regs and LPR's are that way. It'll take around 1500-2000 shots before it's formally broken in. Installing an anti-siphon in the C02 tank will help as well. You can find them online for about $5. Do what the instructions that came with your Palmer's say to do as well. Every so often, put a few drops of paintball specific oil in the ASA and run it through the reg. Your quest for consistency will come with care and time -
