It isnt always an user error and because of these Errors that happened with Oil into the fill nipple i dont think that these guys who trained here would do such a foolish thing....

Hope nobody was injured or even hurt......

I asked one of the Syndicate guys maybe he could bring some light into this....

After all it was a really good practice on Saturday.

Hi Gleb,

My Spare Reg Exploded at a Bullets training session in Hungary about a month ago. So I can only assume it is me you are calling me an idiot. If you have any basis for this accusation, I'd love to hear it... Throwing around insults is not going to make you friends.

The Regulator was an unbranded pure energy style 4500psi system on a Stako tank, and it detonated when filled to 3000 psi

No oil was EVER used on the reg or any component of it

I have heard several possible causes from lots of different people, but until proper test are finished I am still not totally sure to the cause.

The Team and I were all in very close proximity to the explosion and were all lucky to come away without too much damage, let alone our lives. And for that I am very grateful!!

Puh good to hear that it wasnt on that Syndicate train this weekend Jamie and good that nobody was injured on that train in hungary.

Like i said nobody would be foolish enough to do that Oil thing again after the air accidents that happened.

As shorty and Jamie have said, at least no-one was hurt.

And to be honest mate calling people idiots just makes you look like an idiot.
There was no need to say that.

as everyone has said, it's good that no one was hurt. I think the idea behind what gleb said was that he assumed it was another oil+fill nipple thing. Which, now light has been shed, wasn't. So, don't jump onto the guys back cause he wasn't informed enough, however gleb, you should know better from pro paintball players after the MS incident not do to **** like that

Hi Jamie,

everybody around here told me that the cause of it was oil so i assumed that the user put oil in his tank, which would be a really really stupid thing to do so im sorry, looks like it was just a stupid rumour
