One of the small o/rings in the regulator. Or change it out to the Huma. You should not have to do it, that's the only solve. I don't think those factory regs . Can handle all the pressure all the time.

I would rather take 2, 3 dry shots before starting a shooting session than to try fixing it and making it worse. I think it happens in many guns but in cse of an Impact the creep gets noticed due to a reg guage.

I have a huma reg in my Marauder. The pressure read the reg pressure. I set to 1800psi and it holds 1800 psi for weeks and even months without shooting. No leaks or creeps. So it's not cause the impact has a reg gauge that people are now noticing. Imo for a $2000 gun it should hold pressure for a month before it creep a bit. But people having creep like overnight. 

Just my opinion yes it's a top dollar gun and should be perfect in each respect, but in this case the headache linked with all the effort to fix this issue is far more than just shooting 2 dry shots before every shooting session and enjoying.

I also have a reg in a marauder. Im not even sure what brand it is. Its not a Huma or Lane. That I know. I think I payed like $60 for it. You know what. It works just fine and has no creep. Have not shot the thing in about 3 months at least. 

I agree that a top dollar airgun "should be perfect in each respect". This is why I stay away from FX airguns.   

I understand.  But in my case, of the four FX rifles I own, three have the stock regulators and all three work just fine.

I hear ya. I just see more about FX airguns having issues. Most seem to be R&D issues or Quality issues. I would love to get an impact but it just seems that odds are stacked in the way of out of the box issues or soon to arise issues after only a tin or 2 of pellets. FX also seems to make some pretty bold clams on products, manufacturing, and product support (barrels for example). I have said before in another post some time back that I think that the only thing FX realy has going for them it adjustably and the barrel system/caliber change, well and a cool name. I do see other manufactures are starting to catch up and offer these options in one form or another.
