closest thing i have


Degas the marker. Remove the air fittings (not technically neccessary, but you should). Then remove the pressure adjustment set screw. Now take a nickel, like the coin, and put it in the slot where the set screw went and unscrew the cap. Out should pop, in order, a metal disc, spring, then the plunger. If the plunger sticks, grab it with pliers gently, or just rap the stab against your palm a few times. Now take a socket wrench and remove the nut at the base of the stab, will need a long socket for this, or nut driver. Now hold the stab vertically with the socket on the bottom, and lift the stab upwards away from the nut you just loosened. The nut should still have a little plunger on it, with a tiny seal. Replace all three seals in the reg and reassemble in the opposite order. Make sure to lube everything.

edit: after you do this two times or so, you can get it all done in under 5 min. Real simple. Much easier than it sounds.

they are very easy regs to maintain. there are a few knockoffs out there as well, like the bob longs.

Just because a reg shares a general design with another reg, that doesn't necessarily make it a knockoff of the other reg. There are very, very few true knockoffs in paintball.

Bob long regs are VERY different from stabilizers.

Still quite different:



The internals may share a layout and even a design, but one is not a knockoff of the other, you can tell that even without opening them up.

The fact that the operating ranges of the two regs is different proves beyond a doubt that they are not knockoffs, that means there is significant difference between the two.

Sorry it's just a pet peeve of mine when people call something a "copy" or "knockoff" of something else when it's not really true. A true knockoff is like the ST regulator.

I'd second that Youtube vid. Depending on the stab, it might be tricky to get apart. Plus it's always nice to know the exact size of the tool you need to get a nut off or something.
