Review: Good Reg does what it should, great for guns shooting at or below 400 after being worn in, at the crono it is fairly consistent....helps with accuracy allot.

But the bad, i ran out of Hpa and my field doesn't fill it so i used a spare 9oz, now I HAD a bob long guage 300psi one, but with co2 on there for 500 shoots (not quick shots over an hour or so) it creeped up to what im guessing was 600psi.....ruining my guage, and compromising my rocket valve (not supposed go over 500psi). It was my fault i guess, but i know now to Throughly Lube this thing....i use white lithium grease its like 3 dollars for a HUGE TUB of it so i lube after 500 shots when running co2 to be safe, otherwise about 2000 or day of play with hpa. its very easy to strip down....i have a socket screwdriver in my tool kit just for it, i can strip and lube it in less than 5 minutes...easy for in between games when necessary
Conclusion: I recommend Buying this....and lubeing it often. its great for the price, HAs fairly quick recharge, it keeps up at 13bps without to much shoot down. 9 because its good on hpa, but not on co2 but for the price its AWSOME!

good review :-)

as long as i lube it when im done shooting co2, i can run it fine.

But, its annoying to take 3 min and do it every time.

I have a stock Dragun TES and a crossfire 47ci 3000psi nitro, will this reg work with my nitro?

should work great on nitro. May i recomend a cp reg tho....only 10 dollars more and alot more consistant!

you may have problems going that low on your tes however. theses are lp regs (your gun is HP) you may need a new valve. The rocket valve is a great choice in conjunction with this or the cp reg. Do a search in the kingman forum on LP high efficency setups. You could to some high flowing mods to make it work well also.


Catch me on aim if you have it and ill send you in the right direction.
