Problem with Horizontal MaxFlo
I did a search and read through 7 of the 10 pages and I found a few answers but nothing that directly answered my question.
First off my buddy just bought a 2k3 impulse off a friend of mine. It has a horizontal maxflo and hes using a 72/3000 pmi tank. I'm not sure if its lp or hp, and frankly I dont think it matters much in this case.
Now for the problem. When he goes to shoot a string of balls, the first 1 or 2 come out fine but the rest just roll out of the barrel. Im thinking shootdown, but hes really not getting on the trigger.
I watched him shoot a few times and the guage on the horizontal maxflo would go down to 100 psi everytime he shot and took a second to repressurize up to 200. Sometimes the pressure would creep up past the 200psi mark we had it set at and then it would vent from the reg.
We took apart the reg and cleaned and lubed just the 3 orings it calls for in the smartparts manual. Found some debris in the cylindrical silver filter,but nothing else looked out of the ordinary. The orings all looked great so i doubt thats the problem.
Only thing I can think of is this. The previous owner said something about an oring trick.I've read a few posts on this and I think that the oring is keeping the valve on the tank from opening all the way and thats why his recharge rate is sucking so much. I'm gonna run up to the store and get his tank filled today,but I'd like some of your opinions on this as well. This is the first horizontal reg'd imp I've been around before, but I have 3 years expierence with my vert reg'd one.
