LPR Gauge reading low?

So I tore down my IR3 and slowly getting it in working order after putting in storage for maybe a decade.


After relubing and putting it back together the LPR gauge is reading around 65 psi. The LPR washer order is the same as the manual )()(. The minireg is set at 500 psi, cycles good, and chronos between 255-280 FPS but I'm missing a breech seal.

Is the LPR gauge busted or is the LPR off and just too old?

If the LPR is recharging properly then it probably just needs adjustment. It should be 85-90 psi. You will need to add shims to increase pressure. Each shim is worth 3-5 psi.

Does it have to be shims or could I add another curved washer or flat washer?

I only got 5-6 shims on me. Plus, adding ten shims sounds excessive.

Every LPR is different. 10 shims isn't outside the realm of normal.

Don't add another spring washer. A thin enough flat washer may work.

There is a small chance your gauge is off, but yeah 10 shims would be a lot but not outside normal.

The gauge is a standard 1/8", so if you want to check that it's reading properly you can remove it from the tool and put it on an ASA or VRA with a reg in the appropriate output range. I've had a LPR tool gauge go bad before, but the problem was that it wouldn't zero out, so it was pretty obvious.

I gonna swap the gauge out with a 300 psi micro gauge. Then I gonna use the shims and pray I have enough of them to get to 85-90 psi range. Then I can start tinkering with this gun again.
