Regulator creep

My Axe has had issues with creeping recently. It has well over 15 cases through it and is more than broken in. I've tried all of the usual fixes:

First I tried dropping some oil in the ASA and cycling it through the gun. This sort of helped but the creep would come back intermittently.

Next, I took the regulator apart to see what was going on inside. The piston orings looked fine and the plastic cup seal had no scoring or marks. I then lubed the piston orings and put everything back together.

Now, the reg creeps even worse/more rapid than before. I also noticed that it takes many more turns to adjust the regulator pressure than it did before, and my regulator has trouble bleeding the air when flipped off.

Should I try replacing all of the orings and cup seal, even though everything looked fine? Where does one even buy parts for the Axe Relay/reg? Thanks.

the "cup seal" as you call it is the only thing that could cause creeping. None of the o-rings in the regulator would cause it to creep. You need the replace the main seal (cup seal) to eliminate regulator over pressurization. You can call empire customer service for parts if you need them. They will probably just send you the seal if you request it.

For future reference, the "cup seal" is typically called a reg seat.

Not that i experience any creep, but my reg does not degas. It will bold one shot, which is sometimes difficult to remember. So its a small price to pay, for a great gun for the money.

Try putting a few drops of mineral oil in the back of the asa, then work the on/ lever to work in in.
