Average HPR setting on ego's

I know it depends on lots of settings and upgrades, but what is your HPR set at? Thanks for your time. Shooting an 08 and 09 ego BTW.

Most dont measure what the pressure is in the HPR.. I saw your other thread its only 4 cases deep, you need to break it in. Set the LPR about half a turn in and chrono to 280-290FPS... go play and shoot another 6-8 cases and it should get better. You can up the dwell by 1.5ms if your looking for better consistency during the break in period.

do you have the plank kit? that will help with kick... shooting paint will help a lot

Yes, got the plank kit. Just wondering what pressure people were running at. Thanks for the input. I was afraid shoot more paint might be the answer but I'm a cheap ba#*ard with a budget and don't like to waste cases of paint. Maybe I'll sell this 09 and find one already broke in. Thanks again.

Some people are saying 400psi is too high, is this right?

It really depends on what year you have because there is a huge difference between the 05 and the 10. So what year is your ego?

Don't get rid of it. Use your gun. Take care of it. Once it gets about 10-15 cases through it, tune it. It will shoot good. Many people buy new guns then get rid of them because they think they shoot bad, when really they didn't keep it long enough and break it in and tune it good.

Not me. Adjust HPR to desired velocity, and call it a day.

Only for initial set up of a used gun, to ensure there are no problems.

I usually set it at 190 then go to the chrono for FPS adjustments. I only check the pressure when I am setting up a used gun for the first time.

400psi would be pretty high, even for a '05 Ego - higher than is required for an Ego8 or Ego9.

Ok, here are all of the puressures acording to the manual. They are there just for a starting point and you can move up or down as needed to get to 300 FPS. Start by turning the adjuster screw counter-clockwise until it stops at the base of the regulator, then (dependening on what year) turn the screw clockwise the appropriate amount of times to get it to the approximate psi level. (With my 08 i have screwed it in the right amount and them put a tester on it and was with +/- 10 psi. so it is somewhat accurate.) Remember that the numbers are only "General Numbers" so you will need to adjust the reg to get to 300 FPS.

05 - 2 turns clockwise 300 - 350 psi.
06 - 3 1/2 turns clockwise 300 - 350 psi.
07 - 5 turns clockwise 250 - 260 psi.
08 - 5 turns clockwise 250 - 260 psi.
09 - 4 turns clockwise 160 psi.
10 - 4 turns clockwise 160 psi.

Wow, 160psi for the HPR thats low. I would assume the dwell is opened up quite a bit for the low a pressure.

Good thinking.

Thanks for taking the time to do that.

Edit - too late, there's been another post.

The dwell isn't greatly increased to reduce the operating pressure - you have different valve guides, valve chambers, most likely a different valve spring, that combine to deliver lower pressures. Quite the opposite in fact - if memory serves, the stock dwell for the Ego9 is 10.5ms.

I was wondering because I set LPR flush, turned up reg until I got 290ish with Dwell at stock 10.5. Reg pressure is reading at 350psi just wondered if this sounds about right. Thanks for all you time and input I really appreciate it.

After a few hours I found this:

"Make sure it is there and not cracked (See page 44/45 of the manual). Perfect preesure would be 325 psi. It can be achieved by properly assembling it then spinning the adjuster screw all the way out and then 3.5 turns in. This will give you the approximte pressure."

Now I get this answer from the same person: Your HPR should be set to roughly 200psi.

Wait I'm confused. So I turn the screw at the bottom of the reg all the way out. Then turn it 3.5 or 5 which is it? Last time I remember. I turned it all the way out. Then in 3.5. Seems like it was shooting hot. But then again I run my guns in the 270-275 range..

That is absolutely thw wrong way to di it. If you do it wrong, you could seriously damage your marker. You screw the hrp adjutsment screw all the way IN, then go OUT 3.5 turns from there. Your gun will shoot like a rocket launcher with it tuned like that, even if it is shooting 275.
