    I think my regulator fell off around 150 bar and that’s super high not very efficient for shot count. One thing I hate is taking a gun apart that may cause scratches, leaks, and losing parts. Why do they even set it that high? Feeling irritated..

    Don’t you long for the good old days, when you just had to choose  if you needed three pumps or eight pumps for your trusty Blue Streak Sheridan 5mm to put that wonderful little projectile on its target.   No, me neither.

    Seriously sometimes a person can get so frustrated with their $2000.00 PCP , they could throw it.   Then in a day or two you get that thang  just where it purrs & all of your grief & frustration has evaporated.

    If you go to sniperqtys Youtube channel he has a video on how to remove the regulater through the airtube. He built his own tool to reach in and grab it though that’s the only down side. Still if you could make that tool it would be alot faster for getting the regulater out.

I don’t like to take guns apart but I guess I have too.

 I’ll shoot more round through it and see what happens. Maybe the regulator has not seated yet.

    Militaryflip,

    I have owned my 2 gen .25 Vulcan since 10-2015 and I like to shoot mine over my pro-chrono monthly to check performance.  Below is my youtube video for January.  I have not fuxed with my gun at all since receiving it, IMHO these airguns need a break in period before I will go into them.  My advice is to shoot it 700 to 1000 times before you decide to make adjustments.  The gun while not benchrest capable right out of the box is still very, very consistent and accurate.  An Es of 10 or so is not all that bad for a brand new airgun right out of the box.  I’ve seen my statics improve via my Pro-chrono over the past 4.5 months.  ES of 7 and STD of 1, sometimes 0 shooting at Avg of 900 fps. I am still getting 27 to 30 shots with these stats shooting from 245, 250 or 255 BAR down to 160 BAR.  Would i like a higher shot count?…I guess so, but i hunt with my gun and have not found a need to have more that 27 or 30 shots in a hunting session on a regular basis.  If i do then i just air the gun backup.  I’m considering HST adjustments to attain 880 to 900 FPS to see if shot count is impacted greatly, something I will work on by March.  Also there is a new Spring and Hammer that is available for free from the manufacturer that I may investigate to see if it also can improve the shot count.  You can research alot on the Vulcan on TAG forum.

    His isn’t a new gun, its a previous owned gun, so the regulator should of already been broken in and settled.  It was tuned by Ernest so if its high it was set that way, and until it is tuned again it will be that way.  I too hate the thought of tearing my guns open, mostly because its new and i’ve never done it before, but as most things in life, once you get the first time out of the way, its not so discouraging.  Take you’re time and be careful and be patient.
