First is a minor problem, but I'd like to have it fixed anyway. There's a leak coming from the elbow on the Gladiator reg, due to what I can only describe as a "hole" in the thread sealant. I have no idea what brand of thread sealant MacDev uses on these. It is, however, a sort of very pale brown, almost cream colored sealant (I'll see if I can provide a pic, but my camera fails at the moment). If anyone could tell me how to remove that elbow and the sealant without breaking anything (Yes i'm paranoid), and perhaps suggest the type of Loctite I should use on it (I know what red Loctite does, so don't try it ) I would be very grateful.
Second issue. Preferably, a Cyborg should sound something like the one in the first post of this thread:
However, I figure probably due to the way it's tuned right now, mine sounds like a car hitting a dumpster (i.e. loud). A friend (qualified MD tech at that ) told me the correct way to tune it was to set the HPR to 180-190, and then chrono from the LPR. However, since I don't have a gauge on my RX, it's a little difficult to guess where 180-190 is. If anyone has their RX shooting quietly, it would be great to know how far in your HPR is screwed in. Just as a yardstick, it would be great if you could use this method to measure it, so I can do the same thing when setting my screw:
1. Get an allen key that fits the brass screw at the bottom of the reg.
2. Put it in by the long end.
3. Get a pencil and mark the point where it's even with the end of the reg.
4. Take out the allen and measure from the end of the long section of the allen key to the pencil marking you made in centimeters.
5. Post it here.
Thanks very much in advance.
