Lowering output of 3000psi Myth Reg

I know this is possible with their 4500psi units. Anyone know if it can be done with the 3k units? I can't seem to find any info on it except for a standard spring listed for use in the 3k regs, which I assume is the same as the stock one it comes with.

Thanks,

M

on the original 3K myths there is a LP (~400psi) and a "HP" (~600psi) spring available shimming the LP with a 10-32 lock washer will net ~100psi output.
As for how to lower it further than the 400psi ... you'd have to shorten the spring some with no chance of return.

Thanks Rockfrog. My understanding is that these are 800-850psi stock. I'm looking to get it around 600 seems to be where my Phantom runs best. I was hoping not to run dual regulators.

I've yet to get 850 out of a myth, but I pulled mine for that reason about a year ago so maybe they released a new spring?

Don't know...I have a message in with them just waiting to hear back. Everyone seems to report the output as 800 psi... I have one on a 13ci but no air so I can't confirm actual output. but hey lower is better for me so that would be just fine, if that were the case!
