    The gages don't have sealant on the threads like they used on the rear foster. You can snug them down, they may not line up nice and neat across but at least they won't slow leak. I got tired of chasing tiny leaks and just snugged everything down.

    Ok cool. I do now remember a thread about the REAR foster being problematic. Duh

    Don't turn the guages as they apparently have Astronaut Cement holding them in and you could damage threads.

    The above statement stems from reading other people post, not my experience.

    i was talking about the reg as it goes into gun sorry my gauges had zero stuff on them, rubber gasket they go up against ,dont screw them in or out under presure degass then oriantate them into your prefered spot   no cement on miy gauges

    Okay….should I or should I NOT mess with aka ROTATE THE GAUGE approximately 60 degrees?

    I find it weird you can upgrade your gauge from the fixed to adjustable on the other RTI guns, which means you have to unscrew the old gauge for the new adjustable.  If the gauge’s screw in ends (gun & bottle) then the former would really mess things up.

    So to adjust or not to adjust / rotate?  Photos should what is what.

    Reg is all one piece and the bottle end needs to be tight. You can screw the reg in tight to the gun but the gages and fill foster may not end up where you want them. Mine interfered with the cocking handle. My gages are straight up and the foster out the side for easier filling while on the bipod. The reg can be a little loose and still seal. The reg does not have a push pin to let the air out and is a straight hole. It will work with ninja regs also and has the nub for depressing paintball style regs. A very well thought out rifle. Also has a check valve to hold air in the valve and plenum when changing bottles so don't forget there is air in the back if not draining air via stock bleed screw.

       Blackpaw, you can clock the gauges to where you want, within reason. I would, as others have said, add an o-ring to fill the gap, and to have something to snug to, this helps keep the bottle straight and the clearance to the shroud even.  Enjoy brother!

    @scotty1 thanks and everyone else.  I did get some chrony numbers with the FX pocket chrony, but only after I backed off the hammer spring about 2 turns. see below.  I will not mess with the regulator pressure until I do the adjustment of the pressure regulator.

    Can any one suggest what size of o-ring I should get to fill the gap?

    Any o-ring that allows you to tighten against it. This o-ring does NOTHING to seal ANYTHING. Just a spacer

    Okay today I had a chance to get the gun out and shoot some a couple magazines. Disclaimer I have not repositioned the regulator yet to 6 & 9 o’clock. However I did adjust the regulator which is much easier to do than it was on my former FX impact mkii. 

    The pressure was lowered to a 110 bar and I increased the hammer spring some which was a mistake I wound up where I started I discovered in the field. And I didn’t have hex wrench with me to adjust the hammer spring. However I wanted to get the gun on paper and see what it was like. 

    I’m still on the fence about the baffles vs moderator. So I just used my sumo 25 cal which is not good I know for 177, however it’s what I got. 

    The pop lowered with the drop in regulator pressure and the hammer spring ping is louder than the bark. I’ll try to find a balance. 

    Pellets were jsb hades. I really like the open magazine. Sight in distance 15 yards and mostly offhand and snow everywhere. At least on paper now. But definitely not worth showing groups.

    Well, after 79 cents and a slow depressurization the pressure regulator is reinstalled and is realigned.  I only had enough air in my bottle to go to 200 bar, but that should be enough to see if it holds.  How it looks proper.  It is still weird it came like that though.

    Alright one thing I want to add is that I had two different shot strings in the above post.  I took out the three shots from yesterday I took just to get an FPE of the gun.  Now the STD DEV looks a bit better.  Proof will come over time I am sure, plus I need to adjust the gun and accuracy etc.  But not too bad for only 33 shots through the gun so far, and still lots of tuning to do.

    Nice little pop-gun; the RTIs were a close second when I decided a Leshiy (Classic) met my needs perfectly.  Looking forward to reading more about your experiences once the winds drop below "Oh crap!"

    Quickly the air held over night. 10 bar drop but I consider that okay.

    When I first got my Performance it would drop a bit……some from the air cooling after filling, and the reg would settle in a few bar either way. 

    Now they are both rock solid.

    Yeah I went from zero to 190-200 bar and so after skating so this morning was acceptable. Now once I get my small bottle topped off I will pressure up to 250 and let it hold. If it holds that I should be good.

    Okay this will be my last post on this stage of my Prophet Compact.

    I got the regulator rotated 2 days ago, and it was pretty straight forward.  No real drop in air, and my bottle needs air so I will try to top that off tomorrow.  Also, I need to move forward for a moderator, that is the route I need to go.  My 25 cal sumo is just too much and too big, but honestly I like the way it looks, all secret sniper look.

    Regulator is at 105 bar for now, I dropped it a little as with the hammer spring, but I still need to chrony it, want more air for that.

    Anyways, here is the gun I am still trying to figure out a name for, and I will let you know when I do.  I am going to borrow my friends Tanto in 22 to see how it does on moderating the sound.

    The prophecy has been revealed and hence forth, the PPC shall now be known as “Glimmer.” It matches as I’ve been described and trained always blends in and passes without notice unless I engage then you’ll never forget me. Thus my new addition d deserves the name of “Glimmer” you see it but not sure what it is and when you do it is too late critters!

    My 3 section 30mm Huma .25 cal works pretty well and is not too long for the gun.
