Detonator reg problems

I have a detonator for my ion and it has never worked for me. I got it right after the season ended. The problem is adjusting the preasure. If i have it at say 120 psi (thats a little low) i turn it a couple turns and nothing happens. so basicly it wont let me adjust the preasure with gas in the reg and yes i am firing while im turning it. I have relubed it several times, checked all the parts including the reg seat. So i dont know whats wrong. Any ideas?

sorry for upping this,

but i just got it back from the shop, took a look at it, and it looked like a whole new reg. most, if not all, the parts were new. anyways, i air it up and its at about 220 ish so thats too high, i degas the whole gun and turn it all the way down, air it up, ~ 100 psi. so i start to raise it with no air inside but its stuck at ~ 100 psi now. im starting to get real pissed at this thing. i have checked all parts and cant figure it out, everything looks great. WTF is going on!!!!???

with out air spin it all the way up and then back it off about 2-1/2 full turns, that should set u around 160-170, if its stuck at 100 still i would recheck the reg seat, if its not sticking in the bottom spot real well put a dap of evil puss between the seat and brass part and it will help it stay

remember up is decreasing the pressure and going down is increasing it, so clockwise is increasing

My omen and pimp both have problems with the detonators. It's mostly my fault I didn't know how to adjust it on my omen. But when I opened up the detonator on my pimp, after I bought it used, the brass seal retainer was bent. I've ordered a new detonator since it was cheaper than buying the seal retainer. What are some other alternatives to the evil detonator?

ok, i'll try that 2-1/2 turns thing. unfortunatly i only have slightly over 1000psi left. i have practice on sunday though so i'll go a little early maybe so i can get everything working well

all the parts are put back right inside, you have all the parts and the reg seat is ok? is it leaking form anywhere that u can tell? if u adjust it does it move the pressure at all or is it stuck at 100psi no matter what?
ok i just checked mine, on the ion for 170 psi i turn it 2 and 1/2 turns and for my pimp to get 120 psi i turn it 2 times from the top, what i would do is without air on, move the adjuster all the way to the top, once its there turn it 2 and 1/2 time down. then air up and see where ur at.

thats exactly what i did. i degas it every time and then do the 2 1/2 turns, still 100 psi. i just took it completly apart, relubed it, and checked all the parts. everything looks fine.

one question (not sure if this has anything to do with the problem), the screw that is covered by the adjusting collar, do you tighten that all the way so its very tight? or semi-loosly so that brass piece can move up and down? i have it tight.

My friend just put a detonator on his ion and it's working fine so far, with it at the lowest setting it's at 110 - 115 psi. Haven't really gotten to adjust it much yet but seems to be working fine right now.

yes u can not have that set screw so tight that it will not let the brass part move, it has to move to adjust it, theres a happy medium there where it will not catch on the adjuster and it will still let the brass move up and down

My friend started having problems with his detonator on his ion too. I'm going to take it apart and service it for him and see if we can get it working on his ion. I'll let you know if I find out anything useful.
