Regulator Question

I have a cp regulator but its weird it doesnt have anything inside. It looks weird because every time i clean it there is nothing like a piston like most regs hav. I got my gun used and that reg came with it. Is it like that or should i stop using it and get a new one.

The center section should have a piston and some shims in it. Maybe someone gutted it to use on a high pressure marker. What kind of marker are you using it on?

I don't know eteks, but I think they are a low pressure gun. If there is really nothing inside the reg you might hurt the gun's solenoid. Check on the etek section. You may need a new reg. I'm not sure if just buying internals would be worth it. I also think there is an air system section for reg and air tank questions. I'll see what I can find out, but I'm sure you'll figure it out before I can reply.

Probably would be cheaper to just replace the reg, man.

Air from the HPR does not go directly to the solenoid..

You need to click on a picture then copy the URL of the picture.

Still not doing it right, but close enough..

That is indeed CP regulator and should have internals.

By internals, I mean the internals of the regulator.

If the regulator has a piston, then it's part of the internals...

You should make sure everything is actually in there that is suppose to be in there.

Then look into getting the internals or just buying a new better reg.

http://www.customproducts.us/downloa...inline_reg.pdf

here is a manual to a CP regulator. thats what it should look like inside. there should be a piston, and a spring. the spring is the stack of curved washers.

theres also a video on youtube from another paintball site on how to take apart, clean, and put one back together.

you might be able to call CP and get just the internals for cheaper than buying a new reg...worth trying at least, they make great stuff. also pretty easy to find in the buy/sell/trade area here too for a bit cheaper.

if you could upload your pics to a hosting site like photobucket, and then copy the .img tag into your post on here we'd be able to take a look at exactly what you have.

Like I said, I don't know eteks. Some one freaked out when I had a high pressure tank (with out the modded minireg) on my angel and said it would blow out my solenoid.

eteks are not a low pressure gun. you'll be fine with an HP tank. however, you can def still blow out the noid if you dont have internals in the reg. this would give the full output pressure of your tank (~500-800psi) to the LPR, which is only suppose to get like 200psi or so from the HPR. the LPR wont be able to regulate it low enough.

just get a new eclipse reg. they're about the same price as a CP and are made for the etek
