    I was wondering if anyone installed a Huma regulator to their FX Crown ? I want to order one along with new gauge but would like to know if anyone actually installed a Huma and tested yet, power, shot deviation, shot count and shot string. Also any creep after sitting unshot for a day or two like the FX regulator.

    Sorry I can't answer your question.

    But do you have the same reg as the Impact?  Otherwise Huma doesn't make one yet for the Crown with the larger washers.

    I checked when I first got my Crown, because I didn't expect much from the factory reg.  But the reg in my new Crown, now about 1,500 pellets/slugs, can probably hang just fine with the Huma. 

    Yes mine does creep after sitting for a while, but the performance is great.  The creep doesn't bother me a bit because all I have to do is burn a shot and it's right where I set it.

    Extreme Spread is consistently in the single digits. Last two strings I ran were ES 6 and SD 2, which is as low as I ever got from the Huma in the Wildcat I had. 

    The lowest I had with the factory reg in my Crown was ES 5 and SD 1.5.

    Huma now covers most options for the CROWN, a freind has one on order will report back!

    Nice!!  

    Looks like the quality we've come to expect from Huma!

    Just make sure you check the manufacture date of your rifle.

    I'd like to try one. I guess I'd go with the 145-190. That way you could experiment with higher pressures to use with slugs, but then you may lose your warranty. Not sure why considering many FX Crown regs have been known to creep higher than 150

    The high pressure version will adjust from 90 bar up in my experience with the Impact. I don't know why they advertise 145. You'll need a hammer weight to open the valve above 150 bar… about $50 from FX USA and comes with a larger valve seat and new hammer spring. Buy the Huma reg in the USA unless you don't mind waiting 3 weeks for their slow shipping.

    My Crown regulator does have a slight creep after sitting a few days but I just shoot once then it's ok. Is installing a Huma worth the expense ? My curiosity might get the best of me and I may end up ordering one. My Bantam Sniper HR has no creep and a huge shot string with the Huma regulator.

    It's totally unnecessary if your reg is already tight.

    The way mine is in the Crown, it would just be a waste of money.
