Ok, so I'm coming from an Ion which I didn't take care of at all, so you'll need to help with some of this stuff.

1. How do I take apart the HPR and LPR?
2. When I 'clean and regrease' what grease/lube should I use and what should I check for in terms of the springs and pistons?
3. I put about 3-4 cases through it and it sounds like a shotgun and has some kick to it. I tell myself that it's just that I'm standing behind it but after hearing others' quests I've changed my mind. LPR is at about 100.

ubernuber 01-15-2007 04:30 AM

oh, and if I am lowering my LPR do I need to up my HPR to compensate?

Uziel Gal 01-15-2007 11:14 AM

As far as stripping the regs is concerned, refer to the above diagrams: -

LPR - Unscrew the LPR Cap (labeled part 7) to access the other parts.

HPR - Unscrew the Regulator Cap (labeled part 8) to access the other parts.

Not a lot more to it than that. After removing each regulators end cap, the other parts will come out in the order shown in the pictures above.

Any paintball specific grease is fine for lubrication. Commercially, Dow 33 is fine too.

The volume of your marker when shooting could be down to the barrel you are using, or the operating pressure you are running the marker at.

The LPR is mainly used to control the cycle speed of the bolt. It will have some effect on the velocity, but not in the direct way that the LPR on a ram operated marker would. If the bolt travels too slowly, the ball may have already left the barrel (at a reduced velocity), before the full charge of air is released. As long as the pressure is set to a sensible value, so that the bolt can cycle normally, the LPRs effect on velocity won't be too pronounced.

uziel answered 1 and 2, but for the lube, hater sauce is the reccomended lube from FEP. the manual says dow 55, but that has proven inefficient compared to hater sauce. hater sauce is reccomended, but many other lubes work just as well(ie dow 33, slick honey), just try to avoid dow 55.

next the noise is normal. within the first 10 cases put through it, you can begin to lower the lpr and in turn reduce noise. but dont do that until it has been well broken in. some quests are noisy, others are not.

and no, you do not need to "balance" the regulators.

Quests arent realy quiet till they are good and broken in(mine still isnt) but im runnin my LPR at around 85 right now and it helps alittle

iridespyder 01-18-2007 07:16 PM

Especially if you are in a closed room or you don't have any paint in the marker.

keep your quest lpr pressure at 95-100 until it is broken in. then begin lowering the lpr.

cjm555 01-21-2007 07:11 PM

it came like that from FEP so im not messing with it lol

I've been searching all over the place and I cannot find anything that tells you where, exactly, to lube the LPR and HPR.

Uziel Gal 05-09-2007 10:57 AM

In both instances, I would grease the adjustment screw (just to keep the adjustment nice and smooth), the outside of the main spring, and most importantly, the piston and piston o-ring.
