Macdev Gladiator Regulator spike problem

Just got a macdev sonic bushmaster and it is all stock.

The reg has spiked every single time I have aired it up.

I have completely disassembled it and everything is clean, well lubed and as it should be placed and positioned in the reg.

What's the problem?

Using a 100-300 psi guage.

Generally speaking, the piston seat will be the cause of probably 99% of all over-pressure issues. Try replacing that first. I'm not sure if MacDev calls for them to be lubed on assembly or not, but I know GOG/DLX specifically states NOT to lube their reg seats, so you probably want to consult a manual to be sure.

Not sure if that reg is like the newer Macdev regs, they have the red plastic dot reg seat. But Pistol is right most likely the reg seat. The red ones you can flip over if it looks mared. Good luck.
