Post Mini Reg Mod, No need for a lp tank

Ok, i have noticed that alot of people have been having problems with their hp tanks on speeds and a4's. And i keep telling them the same thing. There is a mod you can perform, to make your mini reg able to use hp tanks and have no problems. It is a simple mod that takes about 10 minutes tops. I reccomend it to anyone who has a hp tank, who wants to get a lower velocity, or better performence.

Tools Needed:
Circlip Pliers, you can pick them up at your local hardware store. (Some companies call them Snap Ring Plyers)

Step 1:
Take off your mini reg, and take the circlip out. The circlip is a circular clip that you will see when you look down the mini reg.



Step 2:
Once the circlip is out of the mini reg, take a rag, or anything that will reduce scratches to the mini reg. And put it over the hole and hit it against a table until the internals come out.



Step 3:
When the internals are out, you will see the springs, (they are black.) take the springs off the metal piece. And arrange them so they go facing 2 down, 2 up, 2 down. (())((



If you are still confused about the position of the springs, look at this picture that DaveEllis donated.



Step 4:
You are done Put the mini reg back together and your gun will be able to shoot under 300 fps with a hp tank.

Note: This mod has been approved by an angel tech. In fact, Bob from TAG originally posted how to do this at automags.org awhile back. This mod was done with a hp pmi tank. This mod works with 800 output tanks, i am not sure if it works with any lower.

This mod works on 03-04 Speeds, A4's and Fly A4's. I am not sure if this will work on the 05 Speed. It should work on the 05 Speed if you can get to the internals of the mini-reg.

Also, make sure you follow these instructions carefully, these are nice guns and you wouldnt want to mess them up.

what if you switch from a hp tank to a lp tank? would you have to switch it back to get good results? or would it be fine?

Is it fully adjustable like this? When this mod worked w/ me, it was 250-260 and that was it. Whats up?

I have been trying to get my a4 to chrono with my HP tank and I got it well under 300fps, but the velocity is all over the place. Should this mod bring some consistancy into the picture?

from what i have seen, this mod is somewhat consisten, i get +/- 5 with my speed and it has this mod with a TAG volumizer with a hp tank.

and i dont know how this mod works with a lp tank, i have never tried it with a lp tank.
