there is something wrong with the stock regulator on the rodeo. it seems like the air flow is really low. it makes the gun sputter and wont shoot. i thought it was the valve but i changed it and its still the same. when i put on a full tank the gauge says its about empty. i dunno what to do.

Did you try to adjust it? (Allen on the bottom)

Start with the allen screw airflow adjuster all the way in and cock the bolt. Then put your tank on. Unscrew the adjuster slowly and check your guage as you do. Your pressure should rise. And the adjuster on my Rodeo is on the side of the foregrip (black allen screw). Are some Rodeo's on the bottom, Jimmy?

Yea.....
My Fenix has the same reg as a Rodeo and it has a bottom adjuster...

My gas line attaches to the bottom, so the adjuster is on the side. That's the way the Rodeos I've seen are. Wherever it is, threadstarter, try it as we've suggested and let us know how it works out!

1) You're sure the tank is full?

2) Do you hear a leak anywhere?

Did you adjust the reg before this happened? Make sure your valve is in the correct way aswell. Another thing to check is if a friend of yours has a spyder to try his non-reg asa and see if it really is the reg or not.
