    Huma regulators are now available for Royale series and Bobcat series of fx guns. 

    Did any one compare fx original regulators with Huma regulators?

    it can be a good option.

    regards,

    Question, with this topic: does the FX Superswift have a regulator? 
    Sorry if it’s a stupid question, as I’m not totally familiar with PCP regulators..

    Not really sure what you mean by a “comparison”, but I do have a HUMA regulator in my .30 FX Bobcat MK2. Super easy to install. I can’t really compare since I think my FX regulator was “hunting” from 145 to 155 bar, and the HUMA maintains a consistent 165 (approx.) pressure. I requested the regulator be set to 155 bar when I bought if direct from HUMA, so I’m thinking my regulated pressure gage reads a little high.  Still, the gun went from about 850 to 855 fps before install to 885 to 890 fps after install, with the 44.75 gr JSB Exact pellets.

    @sirk fx regs are not bad at all, they just don’t have the same adjustability as the huma wich can be adjusted without the need of a tester.
    @Centercut when i said comparison i was talking about possibles differences in consistency. I didn’t get when you said your reg was “hunting” from 145 to 155bar, and why have you decided to change the fx reg with a huma one?

    Yes, the FX regulator was not consistent. It would range from 145 to 155 bar, sometimes it would be 150, sometimes 145, etc.  I’m pretty sure that FX sets the .30 Bobcat regulator at 160 bar from the factory. It wasn’t that the regulator was set a little low, it was the fact that it was not consistent, so that my shot string varied more in fps than it should.  ES should be under 10 or so, and with the HUMA it is. Plus the HUMA is very simple to adjust.  Make sense?

    I got you now. How much ES were you having with the Fx reg? Another question i have regarding the Huma, how precise are the bar markings?

    My ES was about 30 fps with the FX regulator, but I bought the Bobcat used, so I can’t say it was like that when it was new.  I’m also not sure about the markings on the HUMA. Huub (at HUMA) told me that they set them up with a precision pressure gage when they are made prior to shipping, and you can request a specific pressure when you order. I requested 155 bar, and my regulator pressure gage shows 165 bar.  Its more than likely that my pressure gage is the item that’s not showing the correct pressure.  Without an actual regulator pressure tester like Ernest Rowe uses in his videos, I’m not 100% sure what the regulator is set at.

    Centercut, is the Bobcat receiver the same as the Royales?  If so you can get a fitting from Best Fittings ( I believe that’s their name) that lets you check your regulated pressure directly from the receiver. All you have to do is unscrew the stock bolt stud and screw this fitting in and then attach a good gauge.

I’ve been acquiring parts to make my own of this,  just need the final adapter M6x1 male to 1/8BSPP.  So basically remove the bottle and bleed the plenum, remove the stock mounting boss then thread it in there and put the bottle back on and it’ll show the reg pressure?  Sorry for the minor threadjack I’ve been waiting to ask you this.

    Yes, Boss, Royale, and Bobcat pretty much same gun. Bobcat MK2 has two pressure gages, one on end of pressure tube and one under the action in the stock showing regulated pressure.

    Glem, not sure if that will work. The regulator is in the receiver aft of the bottle.

Yeah I would be using it exactly where and how Jking did using his digital gauge.  Just wondering if I have the order and procedure right (If I need to either remove or bleed the bottle and bleed the plenum or if I can just remove the stock mounting boss with it aired up).  I have a female foster fitting as well so I can plug it into the adapter Jking and I mentioned above.  Got this for 20$ on craigslist and removed where you’d hook it up to a SCUBA and fired a bolt in there with thread sealer.  Holds North of 200 BAR so It’ll do the trick I imagine.

    I’m sure Jimmy King is more qualified to answer your question than I am. My Bobcat has the same basic action but the gages and fill connections are located differently.

    Glem, you’ll need to loosen or remove the bottle and even after that you might have some trapped pressure in the plenum but when you remove the stock bolt stud that will bleed off that pressure. Go slow doing it though. When the oring under the stud lets the air slip by it’ll make a pop and scare the crap out of you.
    Here is that fitting from Best Fittings UK. http://www.bestfittings.co.uk/shopexd.asp?id=428.  The stock stud is threaded M6.
    I used one of the 1/8BSP male quick connect fitting that came with one of my air guns to screw into the adapter’s 1/8″bsp female side.
    Also remember that the these quick connects don’t have a check valve in them so you’ll have to bleed off your test gear before you remove it.
