    Hi does anyone out there have any experience with pressure regulators for pcp rifles?
    I have an s410 and if set to 12ft pounds at 190bar when i get down to about 100 bar its pushing out 14ft pounds so to keep it below 12 it's a bit crap untill you get under 180bar so thats all i fill to now but lose a few shots per charge as a result of this.
    I understand why it's doing this and would like to now if regulators exist and if so are they any good.
    would my number of shots per charge increase if i was getting a regulated blast of air each shot?

    thanks

    Thanks alot Andy that info on Ben Taylors site looks pretty impressive especially the increase in shots per charge but i'll have to save up for the £225 to convert it. i ain't that rich at the moment and i don't think my missus would be as impressed as i am if i spent that cash right now.
    cheers

    check on here and other forums for an article on "the sweet spot" this will explain how to setup an unregulated gun. the airarms range shoot amazingly well when the correct fill pressure and power settings are in "the sweet spot" .it takes a few hours to set up but once done you wont need a reg. hope this helps

    You should set it up for 12ftlbs at about 140/50 bar not at 190.

    Hi Murphy
    i have to set it to 12ftlbs at around a 100bar because that is where the gun produce's the highest muzzle energy so no chance of it going over. to get a decent number of shots around 12ftlbs i dont fill above 180bar anything above this the muzzle energy drops quite a bit.
    I was thinking about a regulator because i was told it could increase the number of full power shots per charge according to ben taylors web site it could go from 70 shots per charge to about 120-130 which would be handy for when i'm target shooting.
    Thanks for the advice.
