She came in! Have a Q about LP Mod

My Timmy came in, and she is sweet! I would like to thank Smoke again for all that he has done for me.

Here she is:

I have started the LP mod, but had a problem of putting the reversed piston into the Volumizer. I couldn't get it to go all the way in. It would stop about half an inch into it from the pressure behind it. Do I need the piston?

Thanks!

no piston in the volumizer, it isn't needed. petty's guide is for the lp mod without the volumizer, you'll need to adjust your inline reg for your hp, should be around 175psi. have fun!

Not trying to steal your thread, but since it's about the LP mod I thought this would apply.
If you use the HP reg body to set the pressure of the inline reg, will putting the Volumizer on at the same settings change pressures?

WYN,

The volumizer does not have a hole in the front for a adjustment screw, so you cant adjust the inline reg. Just adjust your inline reg like you normally would.

yeah I got that. I don't have a gauge on my inline though. So for me to know what it's set at I have to use the gutted HP reg with a gauge on it. But I want to get a volumizer and need to know if the settings will stay the same when I use the HP to adjust it then switch it over to the volumizer.

no, the volumizer is completely hollow inside whereas the hp housing has a spring and piston. when you adjust it, your adjusting how much space is left in your hp housing not the gun. when you take the hp housing off, you've just reset the pressures. so when you put the volumizer on, you can't adjust the volumizer, instead you have to adjust your inline reg. if you don't have a gauge, just go down to your local field or shop and put it on the chrono and adjust it accordingly. be safe,

eric

nope, I'm talking about using the inline reg for the HP adjustments, but the HP reg housing for the volumizing chamber so I can have a gauge on it. Then once the inline reg is at my desired pressure, swapping out the HP reg housing for a real volumizer. And how would that then affect my pressures?

I woudln't let my local shop touch my gun if they paid me.

The purpose of the reversed piston was to block the air hole in the gutted HPR. This step is unnecessary if you're using the volumizer.

Once you've "converted" the HPR, your inline reg will be doing the regulating that the HPR used to do. You can read the output pressure of your inline using the HPR guage orifice. It really doesn't make a whole lot of difference whether you have the larger volumizer or the gutted HPR. THe inline reg's output pressure determines what the pressure in that chamber will be.

no matter what, to check your pressures you're gonna have to be at a chrono. you then adjust your inline reg to your desired fps(feet per second). if you replace the hpr with the volumizer at your current settings, your pressures will be all messed up. the point of getting a volumizer is to change your pressures along with others nice features that other threads in this forum will be able to tell you about.
