    I was wondering when Steve was going to do a review on the Maverick. A lot of the other airgun channels have done a bunch of tests and reviews. Should be interesting, he does the most detailed reviews.

    Hey Everyone,

    The below is something I REALLY wish I had when I began this endeavor, so I made one for you guys.  It's a step-by-step on how to easily adjust the dual regulators in the new Maverick and it leaves no steps out, making following the process easy.  While it looks complicated and cumbersome, it's actually fun, fast, and easy in person.  I'll demo this in full in the upcoming Vlog.

    Best,

    Steve

     

    FX Maverik AEAC Dual Regulator Adjustment Sequence

    Note:

          * Always set the forward most regulator's pressure higher than the rear most requlator's pressure.
          * A 30-40 bar setting between regs is ideal with 25 & 50 bar being the two extremes.
          * A 25 bar differential will be refill ready for the next shot in about 2.5 seconds.
          * A 30-40 bar differential will decrease this refill-ready time.
          * Rear most regulator pressures (like 70-80 bar) are an ideal place to begin for high power & shot count in .25 cal.
          * Rear most regulator pressures (like 120-130 bar) are ideal for max power in .25 cal.
          * The above regulator ideal ranges apply to 500, 600 & 700mm barrels.
          * Keep the bottle threads and seal interface lubed throughout all of the on/off with it.
          * To decrease regulator pressure, the gun needs to be completely depressurized.

     

    1) Unscrew & remove external air bottle completely and set aside.

    2) Open up (counterclockwise) the rear most regulator adjuster to flush only, NEVER past.

    3) Reduce external HS adjuster to position 1 and dry fire ONLY until regs BEGIN to dump.

    4) Allow a moment for all of the air to drain from the gun.

    5) Gently close (clockwise) forward most regulator until it lightly seats, then open (counterclockwise) 3/4 turn.

    6) Reinstall external air bottle.

    7) Refill bottle to MAX bar because much of it has just dumped into the 89cc Power Plenum.

    8) Slowly open up forward most regulator (counterclockwise) to desired pressure, observing at rear most pressure gauge.

    9) Dry fire 5 times to help seat the forward regulator.

    10) Remove external air bottle completely and set aside.

    11) Lower external HS adjuster to position 1 and dry fire ONLY until regs BEGIN to dump.

    12) Allow a moment for all of the air to drain from the gun.

    13) Gently close (clockwise) rear most regulator until it lightly seats, then open (counterclockwise) 3/4 turn.

    14) Reinstall external air bottle.

    15) Refill bottle to MAX bar because much of it has just dumped into the 89cc Power Plenum.

    16) Slowly open up rear regulator (counterclockwise) to desired pressure, observing at rear most pressure gauge.

    17) Dry fire 5 times to help seat the rear regulator.

    18) Lead fire your newly acquired dual reg setting 5 times to fully seat the rear regulator.

     

    … here's a little bit of the fun one can have.

    Excelente Steve, muchas gracias por semejante informe!.

    Me queda una duda, seguramente por el traductor: cuándo se considera IHS = 0 ?

     

    Muchas gracias!

    I really wish there was regulators you could just tune up /  down as you like, this bleeding the gun cost a lot of air, which is expensive / wasted if you dont have your own compressor.

    Also wish the Maverick had 1 more gauge so you could see both reg pressures at once, and it would be nice of bottle gauge was digital and had a low pressure alarm you could set.

     

    I might get my maverick this week, and the factory close for summer break from Friday.

    I thought my Maverick sniper was accurate so much so that after I shot it I didn't want to change any of the settings until I saw your video it gave me the courage to lower the reg pressure and try groups there. damn I happy I did. thank you for all your information

    Is the Maverick ambidextrous?  I'm a left handed shooter and it would be great if at least the magazine could be loaded from the other side.

    Following along!  I just got my .22 VP and swapped the aluminum bottle for the 580cc CF bottle.  I was having a hard time getting it tuned above 900 FPS and then discovered, as you did, that sometimes less is more!  It's shooting the 18.13 grain JSB's at 988 FPS on PW #7 and 945 FPS at PW #5.  I'd really like to be able to sling some 25 grain slugs at over 1000 FPS, but will probably need the Slug Kit with the heavier hammer to achieve those numbers.  Thanks for the great pictures and info, I'm looking forward to the video!

    You're very welcome.  My guess is that you won't need the accessory hammer kit to hit the numbers you spoke of.  This gun is capable of an awful lot as is.  

    Best, Steve

    Great to hear!  Yeah, it's really quite easy if you approach it from lower reg and hammer spring settings and gradually work your way up from there.  Best, Steve

    Best to check a few of the explanations I gave in the 3 stickied posts.  I'm not a fan of measuring.  I'd rather search from low to high, and let the gun tell me where it wants to be.  Best, Steve

    Probably 140/110 ish based on my understanding of things.  Would be neat to have someone confirm.

    Thanks for your reply. If that is correct it looks like a pretty good starting point to tune from. I really enjoy your videos as they have helped me immensely as a longtime precision firearms shooter learn about airguns. Some stuff is similar but it is really a different game with new challenges.

    Hi there just bought the VP in .22 and wondered if you could share your settings on reaching the sweet spot there? I’m new to airgun tuning! Thanks for any help
