over pressure problem?

I was using my son's Epiphany today at ABP Toys For Tots game. The marker stopped working several times. Each time it stopped firing, I noticed the regulator pressure gauge was reading above 210 psi.

Any ideas? Do I need a regulator rebuild? If so, is there a kit? Best place for parts?

If you're still using the original smart parts gauge, then it is most likely that the gauge is broken.

Try swapping on another gauge if you have one and then see what the pressure is.

If you don't have a spare gauge, zero out the pressure and then work your way up. Don't rely on the gauge while doing so because it may be off by a large amount.

How do I zero out the pressure and make the adjustments to set the regulator pressure?

Assuming you still have the stock regulator, use a 5/8" open end wrench or adjustable crescent wrench and turn the bottom nut (it's the wide, black one. Not the macroline fitting) counter-clockwise (viewed from the bottom of the regulator) until it stops to turn it all the way down.

Then, while using a chronograph, turn it clockwise to increase the pressure until you are firing at 270-300fps.

Yep, the regulator is stock.
