    neil is correct…

    from the fill probe the air goes through a hole in the end cap directly into the airtube.    The Way that they seal the hole so that it lets air in but wont let it out is as follows.

    The hole in the endcap where the air comes in on the inside of the cap is threaded .   they use a countersunk screw in that hole,  the crew has its threads shaved on one side in order to let the air go by. (the more threads shaved the faster it will fill)

    Under the head is a little oring , that oring lets air in but wont let it escape….      

    That is all that is to the filling mechanism on the cricket.   the gun is designed to fill to 300 bar,  i never had an issue with mine.   no reason it should stop.

    “NeilClague”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.

    
hmmmm maybe I have a faulty gauge. The gun works perfectly otherwise. Does anyone know how hard it is to change the gauge? Thank you for the heads up Neil!

    Regards,
    Cliff

    I’ve had my .22 Cricket BP for about a year.  I use a shoebox compressor to fill.  Mine is stamped with a 300 bar fill pressure.  I filled it one time to this pressure but didn’t fieel comfortable and did not seem to obtain more shots.  Since then I fill to 240 bar every time.  My Cricket never looses pressue and shoots like a dream.

    I’m not sure what the problem is.  Your tank at 4500 psi will never fill anything else to 4500. You need more pressure in one container to have it move to another. The cricket is designed to fill slowly even if you open the valve on your tank all the way. Your cricket is safe to fill to around 4300 psi but does not shoot well if you do. If you can get it to around 3400 psi that is ideal. 25 mpa is more than enough and 21 mpa is not bad at all.

    I got the reply from Kalibrgun!
    Let’s share: 

    Hi Nolith, thank You for Your e-mail. In case Your gun is new(regardless of the production date, but from one of our dealers and not being tuned by someone)it should fill up to 300bar. There is one screw in the air cylinder system which, when tightened, causes the airflow to stopat about 220-250bar. I would not recomend You to disassamble the rifle Yourself, but rather send it to the nearest dealerfor inspection. On the other hand – I do not know how long might it take to send id back and forth and 240-250bar is prettymuch the advised amount of air pressured in the air cylinder for regular use.  Best regards / S pozdravem Marek SobinovskýKalibrGun Valdy EU s.r.o.Na louži 940/3Praha 10 – Vršovice101 00IČO: 24779636DIČ: CZ24779636tel.: +420244444801[color=#1f497d]www.kalibrgun.com[/color]

    Hey,BBshooter,I want to thank you first.Yes ,Youtube is forbiden in China,and also google:(But I have VPN to cross the Greatwall of internet in China,thanks for your youtube channel List,I know Ernest Rowe/Sniperqty(the Arabic Guy)/Ted,I download every video of them,so I can watch them without VPN .It’s very hard to play PCP in China,because air rifle is illegal here.You guys can’t imageine how much I cost for a Kalibrgun….,I cost $5821(US DOLLAR) to get this Kalibrgun!Yes,belive your eyes,$5821 for a Kalibrgun!And..if you want to buy a FX Wildcat or FX Bobcat or Daystate Pulsar or Vulcan,you need to pay more then $7000 in China.And many PCP player like me choose to DIY.My first pcp gun is a DIY one.But it’s not accuracy,so I bought this gun.
    Bullup is the only choice in China,because it’s short!
    No one will take a Airwolf/Air ranger style gun out,because you will be taken to the prison by Police……
    You know what’s the worst?More than 499 pellets of air gun will take you go to the prison for 3years….
    The best for me is,I live in coutry,this is a very big grassland  and a moutain with no people in my hometown,so I can play PCP to hunt rabbits and doves.

    I have a problem…:(
    I can’t totaly understand the reply from Kalibrgun,haha,I need to find someone to translate the mail for me…

    And Thank you for all the people’s reply,and the alwayes,have a nice day!(Yes,I like FPS Russia!)

    I will disassamble the rifle and adjust the screw,because this problem will trouble me to use a air tank!
    and anyone know what is the useful of the long screw in bag with the probe?
    I open the package of my Kalibrgun and find a long black screw in the bag.

    Ok,now I’m sure the gauge is a broken one:(
    There is no problem with the air filling,just because the gauge is broken- –
    Can anybody tell me which online store sells the gauge in USA?
    Because it’s very easy to ship the item from USA to China,I can get the package in a week.
    Thank you very much.

    “kris”my friend do not touch the gun, it is fine, just use it.

    listen to the advice from the manufacturer.

    no point filling over 250bar.

    Espiecially as getting caught shipping an air gun in China might mean going to prison. 
Plus, if Fedex lost the package, it sounds like it might be a little risky making an insurance claim….

    The gauge on my Cricket is around 10 off. I go by the fill gauge on my tank. You really don’t need to worry about the gauge on the gun. I usually just fill mine to 200 bar. I get plenty of shots at that pressure.
