Fan of EMR
I remember hearing that they don't work at pressures above 600 PSI, try lowering it and see if it holds air.

Piston O-ring. You can use a mag reg piston o-ring I believe. Or an AA Violator or Black Ice has the same size piston o-ring IIRC.

Take the piston out and look for nicks or cuts on the piston o-ring. lithium grease is not good, IMHO. Use standard air gun oil. It only needs a light coat also. Lithium grease can slow the reg down. I personally hate lithium for PBall use. Its best used on your cars door hinges........lol.

A gen x-2 reg is a low preasure reg only.To get it over 600psi<650psi max-700psi pushing it>.To turn up the preasure break down the reg.And pull out the piston. remove the oring,with a allen wrench and a vise.Tighten the allen screw inside the piston.It should raise the output a little.
