Sidewinder rattle

My Belleville washers are rattling around.

I have 8 washers. )()()()(

Based on the manual, I am not missing any parts. The swivel base does not appear to have been disassembled, but the regulator body and cap have been anodized.

I have set the adjuster to flush at no avail.

I am confident that it will not function.

Please advise.

When not aired up, there's no pressure on the washer spring stack. You will hear them move, that's normal.

The adjuster screw set flush to the base will give you around 200psi output, that's it.

the first time you gas it up, the reg piston will pop into place and seat them. do you have a reg tester setup handy?

It's normal and it will go away once it is pressurized.

Jeez guys thanks I am very familiar with sidewinders and had never encountered a problem so dramatic as this.

I'll take your word on it. I know where the screw needs to be set to gas up with the appropriate limits, but thanks Hulk!

The bottom part should hold the brass washer in place. That thing should not move around.

Wiffle, what's so dramatic? It's a spring stack, made of 8 washers. No pressure leaves the washers with some space to rattle. It is not a spring, it is a stack of washers. Nothing dramatic there, pretty much normal obvious stuff. I have no idea why you'd be confident it would not function, because of a rattle noise, since you are very familiar with sidewinders.

Btw, I use that purple pump Evolution you sold me 3 years ago as main go to pump marker. That thing is really nice. Made some magic shots with it. Got it a purple pump handle. Sidewinder si flush on it, have not adjusted the ivg many times over the years. Always shooting 290fps. And making me smile.
