    Some of us knew it, or have suspicion but now is official I guess:

     

    FX-USA

    …Generation 3 Impact X's (after Serial Number 183534) have the long (16mm) piston and large (10mm) housing (These are called AMP regulators)

    Generation 2 Crowns (after Serial Number 180760) had the long (16mm) piston and the large (10mm) housing (These are called AMP regulators)…

    The AMP regulators are able to be adjusted down without releasing pressure, but it is still recommended to fire at least 1 shot every 1/4 turn while adjusting down, to ensure nothing goes wrong.

    I picked up my .25 FX Impact X 700mm from AOA over Thanks giving. It is Gen 3 with serial 1842XX. Got lucky with it I guess… Thanks for sharing the information from FX!

    My crown is 183xxx… can you push these regulators harder than the Gen 1s?

    Or should I upgrade to a Huma regulator to go above 150 bars?

    I'm at 155 bar with no issues.  Runs a tight ES at higher pressures.

    Is that on .22 or .25 cal?

    If it's .25, what pellet are you using and what are your FPE/FPS?

    Thanks Bob.

    Okay, question? I don't know if I have gen1 or gn2? I know dumb ass question, but I am trying to learn as I go. Do the serial numbers run consecutive through all generations?

    Mine is 181121. I'm I a lucky winner? Do I get a cigar?

    I'm with @bob_o on this one. Mine is 183xxx, so I have the AMP regulator on my .22 Crown. I currently have it set to 135 bar, and if I put it in the gun safe, and take it out two weeks later, its still at 135 bar.  No reason at all to "upgrade" to a Huma unless your current reg. starts creeping or acting up.  Even then, take it apart, clean it up, replace the software and re-install it.  Should be good to go.  I'm not against Huma, I'm just against burning $$$ when it isn't necessary…  ;)

    I suspect a lot of this was generated by the very poor performance of the sub 12FPE UK Crowns & Impacts!

    You can send yours to Ernest to  have it updated, I know it sucks sending a gun off but, may be worth considering as long as it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

    Hold on, so mine is a gen 3 according to that info (184xxx). When I spoke with Ernest, I had asked him about the AMP regs (to demystify some unrelated things), but he did mention that the AMPs were just designed to sit in the Dreamliners and Crowns in a different orientation. He didn't say that they were in the Impacts, so that is odd. 

    Side question – I earlier videos, they were saying not to dry fire the Impact of pressure remained in the reg after unscrewing the air supply. CAN the Impact be dry fired if the reg gauge still shows full pressure? There are recent videos by FX sponsored YouTubers that are doing it and telling people to do so ðŸ‘€

    I have done it without problems, but since is safer to just grab an 2.5mm allen key, so I do that better. According to Ernest if you dry fire with low pressure, you can unseat the rear valve 

    (check min 1.20)  

    I think most of the times will be ok, but if it get unseated is a pain to disassemble and assemble it again, especially considering that you will need to seal test again. Maybe that has change on latest impact x versions? donno…
