Hi I'm new here. Have not played in about ten years and recently started again. Purchased a new axe 2.0. The first time I took it out and fired it the ball did not even make it out of the barrel. The velocity was turned up and I realized the lpr is not set to the factory 190psi. I ultimately turned the backcap all the way in and backed it out 3/4 of a turn. I then adjusted the regulator until I reached the desired feet per second. The gun works great now, but I'm not sure what the pressure is. Is there any harm if it's too high or low? How would I go about getting the pressure back to 190 without a gauge?
I've searched the internet; however, I was not able to find anything related. Most of the information I found refers to the original axe which has a gauge.
You adjusted the velocity the proper way without the gauge. The OPV (over pressurization bleed valve) is there to prevent you from turning it up too high.
The pressure is really more of a reference number that along with the gauge is convenient for troubleshooting You should adjust your marker to feel the way you like, rather than trying to hit a number. If you notice, most other markers don't even have a way to read/measure pressure
