    Did anyone out there install a regulator on a .25 FX Bobcat MK1? Looking to find your shot count and ES.

    I’ve got the .22 and also interested.
    Our local distributor will sell and install the “FX” internal action regulator but will not just sell you the regulator.
    I’ve really seen no discussion on tube fitted regs on the bobcat though.

    I would like to get the longer air cylinder for my mk1 bobcat 22 that has the fill port in the front and install a regulator and use the existing gauge for my regular pressure. Either get a longer barrel for more power or add to the shroud to male it as long as the air tube.

    Sorry doesn’t help answer the question but air-superiority products, they have a banner here, sells an FX regulator, I believe for $125.00. Perhaps they would have some idea ( and naturally your results may avry) idea of pfe/fps/shot count?

    Yes, I would like to hear the differences before I do anything. When purchased AOA had the option maybe they have some numbers. Hmmmm….

    It’s really no different from the setup on an fx 400 or 500, other than the annoying line that runs to the air tube if you have the fill port in the back. You can’t go wrong with a reg, if you want the utmost in accuracy and shot count out of your bobcat. Does your Bobcat have the fill in the back or in front on the tube?  Seems like I have seen 3 different sized air tube on the Bobcat. Notice how all the new fx guns come with the regulator, and now the carbon bottles….it suck being impatient and getting the first model LOL

    Perhaps SPDRCER can offer some insight here. He had a .22 Bobcat Mk1 in the for sale section that has since sold.

    I was under the impression that it was only the .30 cal that had the extra tubing external to the action. ( and they came standard regulated)

    I thought the original FX regulator mounted inside the action. And the gauge then read the regulated pressure.

    The new tube with gauge and front fill port would be the go like AZBOBCAT said.

    Maybe this would work?

    You’d have to use the suitable fill probe for the front fill port and do away with the original foster fitting. (leave it but don’t use it or blank it off)

    Upside is you get a air tube pressure gauge and your original gauge reads regulated pressure.

    Unfortunately FX bobcat use different airtube. http://www.altaros.cz/en/fx-airguns/15-Regulator-fx-model-with-airtube#/ this link is for FX typhone , cyclone, whisper, T12 and more with same airtube. We should get Fx bobcat soon and then we create regulator and quickfill for it. Once we test it and have smaller starting series we will put in on our Altaros.cz web.

    You can use the FX reg the only difference is you wouldn’t need the fill at the back of stock, the standard gauge would read reg pressure and the fill would be at the front it would also get rid of the possible leaks from the extra seals and the tubing.

    How will installing an fx regulator change the filling from back to front?

    I know a guy who installed a regulator in his 25 cal. According to him the only difference is more number of shots as the gun can now be filled to 250 bars. Your gun will loose some power i.e. his gun was shooting at 925 fps before but after installing the regulator he is getting 900 fps max. The guage will show the regulated air pressure and not the air tube pressure.

    The longer air tube I want has the fill port at the front of the tube.I can cap off the old fill port and leave the gauge for reg pressure. If hsnmz your friend needs to increase reg pressure so it will increase fps. It is a balancing act between reg pressure and hammer spring a d hammer weight to get what you want.

    Right, so you changed the tube. How to increase the regulator power ?

    Hsnmz when you have the reg out decreasing the spring tension increases reg pressure which increases velocity. Backing the nut off in very small increments till you have it where you want it.

Thanks, Can you please point out which nut do I need to back out, sorry for my not getting it.

    It’s the nut on the end of the reg, it holds it all together. Go to YouTube and search FX Regulator a few videos to show you how.

    To increase velocity, I would play with the hammer spring tension first before messing with the regulator. With the stock 140bar regulator setting I was able to achieve 950 fps with 25.4 gr .25 cal JSB. Like someone else mentioned, it is a balancing act getting the hammer tension, reg pressure, and valve stem pressure “balanced” to get maximum air usage efficiency ,but if a person wanted to play with pellet velocity short term…I would definately start with the hammer spring before getting too deep with regulator settings.
