In Topic: Tank regs

08 May 2013 - 09:47 PM

i've used pretty much every brand of tank reg from air americas to crossfire to DXS to pmi to ninja to many many others. they all worked the same.
the ninja pro has great features but its not necessarily any better functionally.

Agreed. Honestly, I've never had any issues with my Pure Energy/PMI regs. I will admit that I've always had a bad experience with Guerilla though.

Hmmm but when an axe seems to reject 2 regs (both showed 200 psi on the reg) something is up


Isn't it supposed to read 200 PSI all the time, like a Mini?

In Topic: SFT vs NXT

If the price isn't much difference, I'd go with the NXT, you'll be much happier in the end. Both are relatively cheap, and the SFTs are so old (by now) that it probably isn't worth getting unless it has an inline regular. The originals had the Maxflo regs built onto the tanks instead of the gun itself.

Did it just randomly start doing that? What would happen if you just turn it three turns out and THEN turn your ASA on? Do you have the right number of shim? (Never know, sometimes you just lose them when you clean it).

I'd say it's either the seat or the shims based on the video, but it's a tough call without actually seeing it.

In Topic: Installing Anti-Siphon Tubes

29 July 2012 - 09:13 PM

So if I am getting this right, I don't need to put anything on between the anti siphon tube and the valve, but I need loctite for the valve-to-tank threads? I am reading a lot that says to never use loctite on the valve threads. Is it ok, or recommended to do this without loctite? Just want to make sure I'm clear. Thanks!


For CO2 tanks, especially use loctite. I'd go with blue or red (red if you want more permanent). Also be sure to mark the side of the valve that has the siphon tube pointing up once you get it installed. You'll probably need a vice though to get it on/off, or a pipe wrench and a strap wrench.

Trash it and buy an Axe...


Just kidding. Try turning your reg all the way down, turn it on and gas it up, then slowly turn your reg back up. In my experience, DP regs are notorious for being crappy.
