    A cuppla questions if you will please….

    1.)  Anyone know what barrels come with the Continuum?  I have one in 380mm, another in 700mm, but there is no twist rate information or 'A' or 'B' designation.  Is the 380mm pellet only, or slug?  Same for the 700mm (that is one long arse barrel)?

    2.)  Anyone know if the regulator can be adjusted without dropping the air in the tank?  I understand that it can only be adjusted up, not down under pressure, but have also heard that there is no longer a problem going up or down now.

    Thanks for any help.

    Mike I would call the dealer that sold you the gun or FXUSA at 866-639-0772 and ask these questions…that way you will get the correct answers before you void your warranty instead of after you have voided your warranty. 😎

    Unless you specified something other than A liner thats what you will likely get, there would be absolutely no point in a B liner or slug liner in a barrel as short as 380mm.

    The 700mm would benefit heavier pellets so should be supplied as a B in reality, which means you could also shoot lighter pellets of course but generally not slugs (accurately anyways).

    A B liner is very easy to differentiate, the pellet will drop into the breech end as it is designed for pellets with the larger size (MONSTER/BEAST), if you load a pellet there is also usually much less resistance than with an A liner.

    Continum has the AMP regulator, same as the Dreamline. Here are the instructions for adjustment:

    Externally Adjustable Regulator
    The adjustable AMP regulator is installed in the dreamline. It is located
    either on the bottle adapter (1) or installed within the Tube with an accessible
    hole pointing downwards (2).
    To adjust the regulator pressure higher, turn the regulator AMP screw counterclockwise
    slowly while looking at the regulator manometer located on the right
    hand side of the gun. To lower the regulator pressure, turn the regulator AMP
    screw clockwise a quarter turn at a time, dry firing the rifle until the correct
    pressure is achieved. Make sure your rifle is not loaded before dry firing.
    NOTICE – Fire in a safe direction.
    NOTICE – NEVER adjust the regulator above 160 BAR as damage to the
    system may occur and will void your warranty!
    NOTICE – NEVER use the gun below the set regulator pressure as damage
    to the system may occur and will void your warranty!

    Thank you for the detailed message and instructions,, much appreciated.  I did call UA and talked with Josh.  He said that unless you ordered the rifle with slug liner, it comes with pellet liners in both lengths.  He also said that the twist rate is 1:19 for both.  The 700mm slug liner come in 1:15 twist rate.  He also stated that the tank needs to be removed to adjust the regulator pressure down, but up is okay.  I'm not sure he understood the question with your instructions being different.

    Yeah, I wouldn't risk adjusting the reg down! I know that some claim that it's fine to shoot it, and turn it down 1/4 turn, but it's not worth scratching the tiny acetal / plastic disc. It's easy enough to undo the bottle and completely depressurize.

    My 380mm twist rate measures closer to a 1:16 btw.. no where close to a 1:19 rate!
