Reply To: FX Impact with upgraded gauges " WIKA" photos
Thank you Ernest for testing and sending these.
Bottle gauge is a direct fit however the regulator pressure gauge doesn’t seat fully(leaks) hence an o-ring / derlin ring would be required. I used 5.28×1.78 PUR70 (same as Wildcat breach o-ring) and it’s a perfect fit with no leaks. How long it holds I can’t say.
There’s a minimum 15bar difference between the FX and Wika gauges. FX reg gauge was showing just below 150bar and Wika is showing just above 130bar!
Thought it wouldn’t look nice but it’s odd that it does (to me anyways). Nonetheless for such an expensive rifle where accurate measurements for tweaking matter, this should be a worthwhile upgrade. Hopefully FX will upgrade these gauges for more accurate ones in version 2.
