1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

Daystate Regal Huma Regulator Fitting

    First time post, and first time stripping my Regal and I already have questions:

    The Huma regulator comes supplied with an o-ring already fitted, and an extra one in the packaging. Does this second o-ring fit between the regulator and the valve body?

    [​IMG]

    Second question - my pressure gauge now barely registers into the yellow, previously it would reach the green. This is on a 200 bar charge according to the gauge on the bottle. Any idea why this might be?

    [​IMG]

    Third...and final question for now. Where have these two o-rings come from? They appeared on the floor where I was working and I can't figure out their original home. Shown next to the magazine for scale:

    To answer the gauge question, it is now showing the pressure of the air between the regulator and the firing valve. Since you have put a regulator in between the cylinder and the gauge, it can no longer read the cylinder pressure, just what the reg is set to

    Q1 - that looks to be a spare o ring for the reg should the one already on it fails

    Q2 - Your gauge now reads reg pressure not cylinder pressure. So your reg seems to be set at just over 100 bar (possibly a little high by the way) but when you see that needle drop from where it is that’s when you’ve come “off reg” and you’ll need to refill.

    Q3 - no idea

    And finally welcome to the forum mate

    Thanks for the quick replies, the reg pressure makes sense.
    It still doesn’t seem that consistent , I’m getting between 9.5 and 10.5 ft/lbs which seems low and a little too variable.

    Did you buy the regulator new ?
    The spare o rings are possibly spares for the reg itself. Can't think of anywhere they'd come from on the rifle after just installing the reg.



    In any event, after fitting a reg, power of the rifle will need adjusting.

    The regulator is new, bought from XTX. I’ll do some research on adjusting the power and go from there. Any tips?
    Thanks again for the responses. This is my first pcp, I’m more used to my 35 year old Airsporter :)

    Thanks again Rob.
    Here are the current chrono readings - I'll make some adjustments this evening and post the results.

    That's dreadful, something wrong there. Was the reg set up for your gun spec?

    Worth shooting it down until it goes off reg and see if you get any spike.

    I haven't adjusted the reg, it's how it was supplied from XTX, and supplied for the spec of gun I have. If I recall correctly, it's set to slightly over 100 bar.
