Presuming you mean the large piston o-rings, BS006 and BS012 (same as imperial 006 and 012). The small piston is also BS006. Original material was PU 70, but it doesn't hurt anything to use Buna-N.

Leak from the adjustment screw is the small piston o-ring. Leak from the top hole is the large piston o-ring. Double check the sizes and make sure they're greased prior to installing.

What are the sizes? I just sized em by eye to make sure they would seal. My thing is if it's screwed all the way in it is still gassing up and leaking. The adjustment screw isn't cutting of the supply. I'm trying to cut it so I can gradually feed air to the marker and see if I can get a seal. It's not looking too promising. It's sad when I've tore these guns down hundreds of times and built and tuned tons and can't fix a mini reg leak.

Can't cut the supply on many. I've found that A1 regs have a adjustment 'range' that does not include zero most of the time. The best thing to do is to make a reg tester with a old ASA and a gauge. I bench all of my regs before installation. I usually know where a marker should be set and just set the reg there to start with.

But as most know, I toss the A1/SB regs in a box and shoot Eclipse regs on my guns. The CP V2 looks nice on a A1/SB also and lines up perfectly with the ASA if you buy the stubby.

Yeah, I've yet to encounter a mini-reg from any generation that adjusts to zero. Like rkj said, it's a range.

Old school LED/LCD regs will hit zero sometimes. On metrics, since I don't have a tester, I do the 'start at the bottom and work up' trick he was describing. I have found multiple that won't cycle at the bottom. But those were regs set up for 850psi and had to run at 450-500psi so IDK.

Yeah, but I think you own all of the metric-threaded mini-regs left in existence, so that's not an issue for most people

I'd take a Minireg over a CP any day. I'd take a Sidewinder over both, but the Minireg looks at-home and will function fine on an Angel. All regs will eventually need to be serviced, and o-rings are cheap. Don't give up on the Minireg.

If you put new orings in make sure you clean all the gooey old out with alcohol. If anything gets left behind it can still leak. Im never had any issues rebuilding stock mini regs.

The 'range' thing is a bit of a pain, but once you get the orings in order, they seem to work pretty well.

My Fly gets ~+5/-5 over the chrono, with 5.5 dwell.

I had the same problem with my mini reg. I had finally found the rite orings to put in and was golden. I to prefer the sidewinder over the mini reg but the mini reg looks good on my A1 fly. Most of all I think the War Machine Night Star reg is the best of all regs. I mean it helped make my ion +/- 1 to 2 fps along with my e- orry. Though it's kinda beefy. Just my humble opinion.

There is a company out there that still makes an o-ring kit for the A1's. I Bought a few and they give you a list of where all the o-rings go and their sizes. Look up WDP Angel 1 O-ring Kit on that famous auction site. Can't hurt to have an o-ring rebuild kit.
