    Hello there peeps. I’ve got another FX Impact MK1 problem after fixing two other issues. The two issues I fixed included massive regulator creep (replaced the regulator), and leaking from a small hole behind the safety where you can see the Belleville washers if you use a flashlight.
     

    Sooo, the newest issue I’ve encountered is that when I shoot, it sounds like the stereotypical hammer hitting the anvil. The hammer spring has completely gone from being unable to move (near maxed out hammer spring tension), to now completely loose. I attempted to put the regulator near 140 bar, and it happened as I hit around 140.

    Update: after I lowered the reg pressure (removed the air and lowered), the noise is now gone….why did it make that noise in the first place?

    You have to go to your downloads menu and manually open it by choosing which device app to run in order to play.

    This is coming from a totally computer illiterate guy!

    That's normal, theres supposed to be slack there.  Free floating hammer.

    Cock it and see if it does the same.

    Yes. Thanks. I managed to fix it. However I had to lower the regulator gauge by about 5 bar. So now I’m sitting at about 135 bar. I’m still puzzled on why it made that weird noise (hammer hitting anvil) when I went to 140 bar. Could it be that I actually went over 150, and the gauge is off? 😬 😥

    Sounds like you're describing valve lock, if you still have those crappy MK1 gauges I'd look into getting some Wika ones if it's a keeper.  Just leave the reg where it is and enjoy it.

    Ok. Thanks so much.

    I have videos on recalibrating gauges that aren't reading perfect but haven't done a FX so ? You can search my profile on replies created to see the DIY gauge recalibration videos.
