    Hey,I’m glad to find this forum, and hello everyone.
    I’m a Chinaese Airgun player,My English is very bad :(

    I got a new Kalibrgun Cricket .22,and i got problem with air filling,
    When i use a compressor,the pressure of compressor is 30MPA,but the pressure of Cricket will stop at 25MPA,never higher then 25.
    When i use a Carbon Tank,if the pressure of Carbon Tank is 25MPA,so the pressure of Cricket will stop at 21MPA,i wait for a long time,but it’s still 21MPA.

    But there is no air leak,everything goes well but the pressure.

    So any one can told me what’s wrong with my Kalibrgun?

    Because there is no air gun shop in China,so I can’t find a shop to check my gun,i can only ask help here.

    Thanks very much!!!

    I don’t know what a MPA is, let me put this in my familiar measurements. The guns will work with 3000-3300 psi, or 2.2 bar. My .22 shoots 4 magazines at near 900 FPS. without any major change in FPS

    Thanks for reply,MPA=145PSI,so 30MPA = 4500PSI
    My problem is that i can’t to fill my gun more then 3000 PSI with a 4000 PSI air tank,
    it means the pressure of my gun is lower then the compressor or carbon air tank,
    do you know what i mean?
    Thank you again!!!

    When i fill the gun with a compressor,the fill speed is very very slow,
    for example:
    when the compressor is 1000psi,the gun is 300psi,
    when the compressor is 2000psi,the gun is 1000psi,
    when the compressor is 3000psi,the gun is 2000psi,
    when the compressor is 4000psi,the gun is 3000psi and stop rise up,after 1 minute,the gun is still 3000psi,
    i forgot to say that my Kalibrgun is not the color pressure guage,it’s a number guage

    把堵头拆下来,检查一下是不是单向阀的那个螺丝拧太紧了;
    另外可以在QQ上找到我, 吹牛专家z

    I think that it is because the way Kalibrigun has designed the filling system.   It uses a countersink screw with a oring behind it.   Once the pressure overcomes the oring it will fill the tube.   but when you are finished you bleed the line the oring sucks back into its seat and seals off the tank.  

    so in order to fill you have to over come that oring.  and sounds like you don’t have enough pressure once you get up towards higher filling pressures

    Thank you very much!
    Because most people told me that the best pressure of kalibrgun is 250,but i can’t fill it to that pressure,so i know there must be something wrong.
    So I have to adjust the fill O-ring and Screw?Is that right?

    “and sounds like you don’t have enough pressure once you get up towards higher filling pressures”

    My compressor is 4500PSI,so the pressure should be enough to fill the gun up to 4000+PSI,that’s logic.
    But in fact,the gun will stop at 3500psi when the compressor get to 4500psi.

    nolith, the best working pressure for the gun, that I have found, is filled to 220 bar or 3100psi. Mine falls off the regulator at around 120bar or 1740psi. Mine also will not fill past 240bar, 3480psi. It just stops. I have been told it is bad if you fill much past 220 as it stresses the o-rings. Im getting 58 shots out of mine at those pressures, before drop off.

    I asked once about it stopping so low and was told not to worry, its shooting in its prime area, SO, I stopped worrying and started shooting.

    Your reply give me a great help,so the filling stop at 220bar is a design by Kalibrgun?
    Your Kalibrgun is same as mine?Waiting for your reply,thank you again.

    I miss understand you. If you have 4500 psi in your fill tank and it is available.

    There is no reason why it shouldn’t go into your cricket.

    Maybe you gauge on the cricket is faulty and won’t go past .

    There really isn’t anything that will restrict it from filling past a certain point.

    If you wanted to you could put 300 bar in it no issue

    I dont think its manufactured that way, My gun stops filling at 240 bar. I dont know why! but, it does not effect the usable shot count. My gun was also tuned by Ernest Rowe. It would seem that if the gun reads a certain fill level, you should be able to fill it to that level. But mine is like yours, it does not. I use a 4500 tank. It fills my other 300 bar guns with no problems. I dont worry about it as I said before, I have been told not to fill it much past 220 bar for longevity reasons.

    sorry for my bad English, question: when you say “Cricket will stop at 25MPA” were are you reading the pressure from??? si that from the gun manometer or form the compresor/tank??? if is the guns manometer, could be the manomoter off (a lot)?

    My tank gauge and manometer are almost exactly the same. My manometer reads in bars and my tank gauge reads in bars and psi

    It’s my understanding that the Crickets have a mechanism that prevents them from being overfilled by stopping at 250 bar. My Cricket does exactly this. When I am filling the Cricket with my 4500 PSI tank, regardless of the pressure in the tank, air stops leaking into the gun when it gets to 250 bar. I hope this helps.

    Cliff maybe they have altered the design of the new Crickets, but the one I had filled all the way to the maximum 300 bar. I am not sure why they would change the gun since they initially advertised them as filling to 300 bar unless it is to keep the shot in the sweet area. It is possible there are some faulty gauges out there that read incorrectly which makes more sense than Kalibr selling 2 different guns, one that fills to 4500psi and one that stops well short of that. Maybe an e-mail to Kalibr would get the correct answer to this issue, Neil.

    My Kalibrgun is not the color gauge,it’s a number gauge,so I can read the pressure from my kalibrgun

    Yes,I will send a Mai to Kalibrgun to get the answer,and Thanks a lot!!
