    Since the second regulator in the MK3 Impact is in the bottle adapter, does anyone know if I can retrofit the new bottle adapter into a Gen 1 or MK2 Impact and update my existing bottles to be compatible?  

    Seems that if the threads on the MK3 adapter are the same on the MK2 and Gen 1, it should be an easy refit, but is it?  That's the question.

    FX USA, if you see this, is the retrofit possible or is the thread different, or is there another reason it won't work?

    Many thanks in advance.

    The new regulator for the FX M3 does not work with the older, MKI and MKII models. What exactly would be involved in a retrofit, I don’t know. FX says it is not compatible though. You can get an aftermarket regulator to use up front if you want a two regulator system though.

    The m3 reg thread is a little bigger so it isn't plug and play. But maybe can drill the hole on the mk2 bigger and tap it so can screw in the m3 reg and can tune the reg like the maverick. 

    Or if you don't wanna drill your impact and tap new threads, you can get a huma reg. It works the same, just the huma reg adds about 3 inches. Making a 480cc bottle extend as long as a 580cc. Look at the pic, the 480cc bottle will extend all the way to the lcd. So if you have a 580cc and a 600mm, it will not fit. Barely fit with the 480cc.

    Stoti and ImpactX, many thanks.  I suspected the threads would be different but wasn't sure.  Just means My Gen 1 and MK2 will remain as they are, single regulator.  I'm no machinist, so unless drop in, plug and play, I don't do it.

    I will give FX credit though.  I added a Power Plenum to my Gen 1 .25 cal and it made a huge difference.  Allowed me a 30 bar decrease on the regulator to get the same performance as without the PP.  Love being able to upgrade when I can.

    Thanks again!

    I read that post. Nothing about a new dual reg for the mk1 and mk2. Please link the new daul reg you are talking about.

    I check their site and this is all I can find. It looks like a tool use on their old daul reg to help adjust the pressure only. It is not a new dual reg. I am still waiting for the day huma can come up with a compact reg similar to fx dual reg that we can screw onto our mk1 and mk2 and not extend the bottle all the way to the lcd.
