    Hey Jude, (that sounds familiar) ha ha.

    Nice write up, with the photos to give a great visual too. Once you take one apart there's really not that much to them. Glad I could help and I'm going to save the topic to my favorites as well. I've had several inquiries and questions on the Regal and tearing one down but since I've been without mine for a couple of years I'm slowly forgetting some of the details. Anyone that has or is thinking about getting a Regal it would be wise to save this link for future reference. Again, nice work and a + heading your way.

    How's it going Jimmy? I have another question for you lol. How did you polish the valve seat on your old Huntsman Regal? Just in case mine develops a leak in that area in the future.

    One thing I love about my Huntsman Regal is that this is Daystate's lowest model in their line of airguns that they offer and it's a shooter.  Here's a few pics of one shooting session at 50, 70, 75, and 80 yards using JSB 18.13gr and 15.89 straight from the tin.  Winds were about 5-10 mph.  These are all 5 shot groups.  All the 50 yard groups are less than 1/2 inch or under a dime.  There's a couple 80 yard groups that fit under a dime.  I say not bad for an unregulated gun with an average shooter.

    Jude, yeah mine leaked from the high pressure side to underneath the O-ring/plastic seat combination. There was some machining marks that where pretty rough. If I remember I just used some very fine, like 800 or 1000 grit wrapped around the end of my finger. I can rule out using any rotating electric tools. I think it should have been finished smoother when machined out from the factory. It always amazed me that the Oring/plastic seat just being held centered up with the valve stem with the high pressure pushing down on it would seal as good as it does.

    Thanks Jimmy. Just wondering because it looked kind of tight in that area. I inspected mine and it seemed fine after I cleaned it and re-lubed it with silicone grease.

    No problem. There's a lot of knowledgeable and helpful members on this forum. Feel free to ask any questions and I'm pretty sure someone will chime in. 

    If anyone is interested, here's a link to some of the Daystate o-rings for different models to include the Huntsman Regal and Huntsman Classic. I found this thread very helpful and ordered a bunch of o-rings for future use from The O-Ring Store.

    Well done a top post very informative if you do not mind I will copy it and save it. One thing you are very lucky with in the States is that you do not have the Anti Tamper fitted.

    How fast is it shooting? Mine is under 850 fps with 18.13 gr and accuracy is horrible before it was shooting 870s with the same pellets

    You did that using the magazine or the single shot tray

    My average velocity is 849fps with 18.13gr. JSB and the groups were shot using the magazine. Here's a pic of my shot strings using 18.13gr and 15.89gr JSB's at different fill pressures. Hope the pic shows up well.

    So I stuck with filling from 135/145 BAR to 210 BAR which gives me the best results using 18.13gr JSB.

    Eddy,

    Here's a current thread to try and diagnose your accuracy problems. Hope this helps.

    I tried  the 18.13 gr at 50 yards with and without magazine and it seems that it only  likes the 15.89 s
