So I was rummaging through my spare parts bins, looking for a reg to throw on a project marker for troubleshooting and I found my old Palmer Fatty.
Looking back, what a fantastic....waste of money it was. I bought it for $80 and it worked for a week before the small plastic piston decided it wanted to tilt and jam inside the reg over and over. When I called to get a rebuild kit just a month after purchase, the price from Palmer was a deterrent in itself. They wouldn't even tell me what size the o-ring was so I could get a replacement myself.
So I sit here with the most expensive reg I've ever bought in hand...thinking... what the heck? I always heard such great things about PPS, was this just a fluke? Maybe after all these years I should give it another shot, eh?
I changed the piston o-ring myself and lubed the reg today and guess what? The freaking piston jammed AGAIN after the first 100 shots fired.
Tell me this is something that I induced by fault, or is something easily fixed and I will be pleased. Otherwise this thing is going in the trash next to my snot rags and banana peels very soon.
