    I have received a regulated, a new valve pin and new transfer port from FX Company.

    I have to install the regulator but the information on FX site is not well enough.  I need some more details as where to drill the 2mm hole?  What adjustments will I have to do with the hammer spring? etc.

    The regulated is factory set at 142 bars.

    Please advise.

The vent hole in the breech is pre-drilled as far as I know, you only have to drill it all the way through.
    What do you mean by a new transferport? The valve seat for the new valve pin maybe?
    Hammerspring has to be adjusted until the desired speed is reached.

    By new transfer port I mean a brass made part having a port for air which is fit at the breach end of the barrel.

    Yes they sent me a new valve pin.

    Can you share the pic of the pre drilled vent hole?

    Sorry, I don’t have a picture, but it kind of speaks for itself. There is only one little hole in the bottom part of the breech, and that one needs to be opened so the regulator can vent to atmospheric pressure.
    I doubt it if you need a new transferport though, a.f.a.i.k, the only things you need to change are a bigger valve seat and valve pin.
    But regarding your questions, if you’re not 100% sure about it, please leave it to an expert. It’s not difficult, but you’ve got to know what you are doing.

    Mubhaur, if you live in the states AOA will install one for $210 and that’s including the regulator. If you already have all the new parts and regulator I would assume the price to be discounted quite a bit. You could probably just sent the action and save on shipping a little as well. I’ve regulated a couple of guns but by the time you buy the regulator and put in the time and aggravation with the install I’d gladly send mine to them. I have a FX 500 on the way and might eventually get it regulated it as well.

    Not to high-jack this thread but don’t assume or do what I did. When I ordered a regulator for my FX400 .22 a couple of weeks ago I asked if there were any other parts needed. The sales person checked with someone there who installs the regulators at AoA and they said no the regulator is all I would need and I accepted that after all they would know right? The regulator arrived in a couple of days. I took the gun apart and inserted the regulator, so far so good. When I put the bottle bracket back in and got it tight I was about a 1/4 turn from getting it to the point of getting the fill port to face down unless I unthreaded it 3/4 of a turn so I unthreaded it to get the fill port in the right orientation (facing down). When I got the  bottle back on and it leaked air between the bottle bracket and the receiver since it wasn’t compressing the O-ring enough. I took the bottle bracket back out and ended up putting the plastic spacer back in that was behind the bottle bracket when I took it apart. I figured since I was told I would need nothing other than the regulator this must be needed to help seal the bottle bracket to the receiver. Bad move on my part. I screwed the bottle bracket in and was able to get it oriented with the fill port down and it didn’t leak when I got the bottle on but in my haste I didn’t drill out the hole on the bottom of the receiver next to the manometer plus the gauge wasn’t reading the internal pressure at all at this point. I took the gun apart for a third time and when I tightened it the previous time the plastic spacer was so squashed into the receivers threads and around the regulator. So now I cannot remove it or the regulator to drill the hole. I’ve tried to pick at the squashed spacer but it is not looking good for me to get it out in small pieces. I’m afraid I might not be able to correct it and have made my gun unusable – big sigh. I have taken a break from going any farther for now as I don’t want to dig myself a deeper hole than I already have. Any ideas would be appreciated. I am considering using a heat gun and heating up the plastic spacer to try to make it easier to pull it out piece by piece but even if I get it out how does one pull the regulator out when there is nothing on it to grab onto to pull?

I just called AoA and the regulator is $210. Installation is another $100. I’m thinking I’ll leave minu unregulated.

    You are correct chiro. I was unpleasantly surprised that I had been misquoted. Found out the full price when I paid out.😳 Oh well it’s done and I really like it regulated.

    I played with mine a bit and found I can get 50+ shots with about 20 fps ES from 875 to 895 if I only fill to 185 bar. That is with 18.1 JSB. With that spread, there is no significant poi shift that I can detect. I’d love a regulator, but the price is prohibitive.

    Where you located Bvan? Maybe someone local can help you out. Sounds like a couple minutes with an exacto  knife and pic and being very careful.

    Sorry I should have followed this up. I used a soldering iron to melt the swooshed ring and got it all up and running.

What else is involved? Did you have to install a different valve and seat as I have been told?

    i check the instruccion in the fx web to install and is wrong chapter 3

    1. Remove the gun from the stock
    2. Remove the airtube/bottle and the valve bracket(1) and the plastic gasket(2) which is
    located 10mm inside of the valve bracket(1).

    3. Remove the manometer, you will see a 2mm diameter hole just under the
    manometer hole this will have to be drilled through using a 2mm drill. remember to
    remove the aluminium chips from the block

    4. Change the plastic gasket under the manometer and reatach the manometer screw it
    untill you can feel it touching the plastic gasket and then add a half to one whole turn
    to the manometer depending how you want the manometer to sit
    5. Now insert the regulator as shown below just push it into place, and thightly screw
    the valve bracket(1) back. Reatach the airtube/bottle and the stock!

    And what do you think is wrong of part 3 in the instruction? :)
    It is 100% correct if you ask me. You have to remove the manometer because otherwise you can’t access the 2mm hole which has to be drilled through.
    See picture a couple of posts up.
