Empire Relay PSI range

I know the Axe runs at about 190psi, but can anyone tell me what pressure range the Relay regulator is capable of?

Thanks!

I had read somewhere to keep it under 300 but I have no references to support that.

Yeah, the factory gauge on the reg only goes up to 300 (and that's obviously not recommended pressure for the Axe), but I'm thinking of repurposing it for a different marker that needs +/- 550psi. It's a nice small package with on/off, and I can get one locally fairly cheap.

Is it just me or is it tough to find bottomline ASA/Regulators these days? I'd settle for a Maxflo, or a Thor if it was cheap enough. I've got a bottomline tank reg off an Evil Scion I was going to adapt to ASA threads, but that's a lot of work and I'm thinking of cutting my losses on that one. Nice paperweight, uses proprietary dovetail rail which I don't have :P

I've read on here that changing out the spring, or shimming the existing one, will work as well.

There a pressure relief valve you'd need to plug,iirc it vents about 300 psi
I don't think the (older) Mini reg has one

Well I had a relatively productive day! After a chat with Rage 01 about the Relay, I picked one up. I also wanted to put a macrofitting on the port where the gauge lived, but it's only fed by a narrow passage - so mill 'er time! This was a little dicey, was worried about crashing the shoulder of the bit, but I pulled it off perfectly! Also fabbed up an aluminum plug to fit the old gas-through grip port that won't be used. Sealed up with blue loctite. Lathed a plug from UHMW to seal the old 300psi over-pressure valve. A random washer fit perfectly inside the reg to shim the main spring. Puts out the required 550psi.

Keeping gas-through wasn't possible for the rainmaker - only place to run a line would have went right through space the hammer and sear traverse. Just happy to have a proper adjustable bottomline reg, and purging on/off it pretty nice!
