I fell asleep in the corner.
Now to answer your questions.
The DynaFlows do have the tendency to rise in output pressure as the tank pressure goes down. This has been known since the beginning. It was posted in PaintballCity as a FAQ. I will see about doing that again here.
The reason that the regs do this is because of the design. It is designed to be a volume regulator at a set pressure. Not a pressure regulator at a set volume. This is why we can have higher flow rates. (I am in the process of getting my boss to publish these figures.) The by-product of our design is that the output pressure fluctuates with the tank pressure. While some people think that this is bad, to them I say yes it is.. IF you are using a singly regulated system on your gun. or if you are unaware of the phenomenon. I see by your second setups that you didn't list the output pressures of the tanks you were using: AIR, Arm, etc.. This would help a little in diagnosing some of the issue.
Please just hear me out on these suggestions.. more thinking out loud than anything.
One thing that I can think of is that the in-line regs are set too high and essentially becomes a gas thru when you set it up with a dynaflow, i.e. that is until the dynaflow output reaches the set pressure of the in-line. This may be the case of the 2 autocockers because even free flows run at about 450 PSI. I know that it's not true with the beehive. The Angel in-lines are prone to failure at or slightly above 1000 psi. If you are having true spiking problems with the output of the tanks then this is possible.
The problem also maybe that your grub screws are incorrectly adjusted on the brass piston, Or possibly even that the hex head on the reg is not torqued onto the reg body tightly enough.
If you would still like to work with the tanks, please let me know,
I can e-mail you a maintenance guide (which I am in the process of completing)
Or you can give Josh a call at (630) 553-2611. I will inform him of your dilemma.
As far as the rail breaking, we did have a batch that had problems. If your serial number is 1100 or less then it will be replaced for no charge. In any case, talk to Josh.
