“cosmic”My .177 is at 1100 psi .. Like most I guess.. Anyone know what size shim to bump it up close to 1200 psi ?   Built my regulator tester ..  It cost about $26 total becase I bought a 2000 psi 2″ gauge with a 1/4″ fitting so I could see it for $9, and adapter 1/4 to 1/8″ for $6.. Bottle adapter with bleed off $ 11.50 shipped..


You need to disassemble the reg, determine what you have for shims and then you can ballpark what you will need additionally to get to 1200. Just always make baby steps and also remember you have to exercise the regulator between shimming sessions so it will settle to give you its true output. I know this is a non-answer but you are chasing a variable that can not be measured without more data. Nice looking tester, by the way, I like it, I like it a lot (must be said in Jim Carry voice)
