Regulator End Sizes

For the G5 i know it comes with an allen wrench set, and the biggest one it comes with fits only the smaller side of the reg for a g5, i had the same problem with the g4. I think its dumb, why cant they include one more allen wrench big enough to fit the reg. So im wondering what is the size of the bigger end of the reg, the side that attaches to the gun. Thanks guys

It's a big allen key, and not real common. It's expensive relative to the other allens, so that might be one reason it's not included. I think a redesign would be more beneficial in the long run than trying to include a giant allen key.

you can also use the 1/4 and 1/8 allen key together to get the reg top off. just make sure you line tem up well so you dont risk stripping your reg.

yeah you can do it like that ^ but be careful


I use a socket and a 3/8 ratchet to get them apart. the socket required is easily found at a hardware store and can be had for cheep.

When you put the reg back together, dont make it super tight. Super tight wont help anything.
