Adjusts without alen key
Bottom can go loose, feels wierd
All I have had is problems with this reg. I spent 1 hour trying to get it to adjust to my gun and no luck. I went the the chrono and was getting 244 278 320 268. There was literally no consistity at all. Im dissapointed since the price was so high.
Maybe you can have some luck with this reg but not me. Overall i think this reg just isnt worth the money
I would agree that these are horribly over priced, but you might not be getting the best from it.
As you have only had the regulator, it may not have worn in yet. You net to put a few thousand shots through it to be sure that it has bedded in properly. I would also strip it, clean it, and re-lube it in case any dust has got in it from the time it was manufactured until the time you received it.
As far as things that could be wrong with it, the reg seat seal and piston have the biggest effect on the function of a regulator - make sure that the seal is in good condition, and that the piston moves freely. Also check to make sure that the vent hole in the bottom half of the regulator is open, and not blocked with anything.
