So I just bought a Zenith

It's used off eBay, not shipped yet so I don't really know if it's in perfect condition but it sounds like it's good. Doing some research I'm hearing of a lot of problems with leaks. Should I plan on replacing the regulator? I have a CP on a sniper I'm not using. Any thing else I should know? Ive been playing for about 16 years, mostly pump gun. This is my first electric gun, if you don't count the e-grip I had on my A-5. I'm also guessing my old 9 volt revy is not a good choice for a hopper. I'm looking at a Halo Too.

Are you planning to run HPA or co2?

If you get liquid co2 in the stock reg early generation RockSteadies they tend to freeze up and leak... The more recent generation loves co2 in with near Stabilizer-like consistency, it's phenomenal (I even put my SMGs 9oz siphon tank on there to test the theory). If you plan to upgrade, for $40 you can get the new version, which is cheap for ANY regulator especially one that looks so good and works so well.

Even though my primary gas source the last few years has been 12 grams, I do have 3 good HPA tanks in Hydro LOL! I forget that any one besides those of us who play stock pump still use CO2. Is there a way to know if I have a new or old style regulator?

Lots of people in the market for a STBB use co2 because the tanks are $20ish rather than $75+, fills are more readily available, and you get more shots per tank. I think when you're dealing with a <$200 marker it's hard for beginners to justify the purchase of anything other than small 3K steelie and even then I don't see a lot of them on the field. Every issue I encountered with my Gen1 Azodin regulator (and every one I've heard) has been co2 related.

With the cheap stock reg the air inlet is on the bottom. With the RockSteady it's on a swivel like a Sidewinder, and the difference is internal, I'd say dump a few 12ies in upside down and see what happens to ascertain which it is. Besides that, I'd say you're probably pretty safe just using HPA...

Finally got it on Monday. Looks like its the better reg. I haven't shot it over a chronograph but it seems decent. I have found 2 problems with it. Some times it fires twice when the trigger is pulled and the board doesn't remember it's last setting after being powered down. I don't think there is any way to adjust the trigger sensitivity settings. I'm wondering if the board is bad?

Sounds like the board, I had that problem, cept my Z wouldn't stop firing. I replaced the board with a spyder virtue board. But I'm sure azodin will help you. They're great.

After changing the modes on the board you can remove the red jumper cable that is located on the bottom left the board. This will ensure the modes stay the same when you power it off.

Took it to the chronograph yesterday and man this thing is messed up. Velocity ranges form 120-309fps. Every now and then when I pulled the trigger it acted like there was no gas in it, just dry fired. And yes my tank was full and the gas was turned on. Occasionally it didn't recock, turned the reg up a bit. Then it went cyclic throwing a good 20balls down rang with one trigger pull. Everything as far as I know is stock except the tech t bolt. I'm going to have to fully disassemble this to figure out why it didn't shoot, even though the bolt went forward. Im thinking how dose that happen? This is a KISS gun, problems like that just shouldn't happen. It most definitely needs a new board. I'm now wondering if the valve is messed up or if the reg is having problems? When i get the time I'll strip the whole thing down. This may be more $ to fix then the gun is worth. Any one know the ideal operating pressure off hand?

OP is 240. You have a oring or 2 broken in the reg. Fix that first. Maybe the cup seal guide is stripped. Make sure you aren't using a gravity feed hopper too. And put a good battery in your z.
