Relay Service Guide - Step by Step Instructions

I created this and posted to PBNation a few months ago... figured I would share with everyone here too..

Just give Paintball Solutions a call! :tup:

With that said... enjoy.

If you see any errors (I slapped this together in an hour), please let me know and I'll correct them.

If there's something that you'd like me to add - shoot me a message.

If you'd like a full PDF version of this and not images optimized for viewing on a computer screen, PM your email address.

Share as you like, I just ask that you give credit where it's due

i have a question

Can you put co2 through a Relay?
(not on an axe/mini)

The manual says no co2, but is it because the noids in the mini/axe or is it actually due to the nature of the Relay setup?

I'd love to rock co2 on some of my mech ions and stuff with Relays on em, but am too chicken to try!

now that i have a user manual... i may try if you dont know

This regulator shouldn't be harmed by Co2 anymore than another brand of regulator.

Worst case scenario, you'll have to rebuild more frequently due to oring wear, but I would think it would work ok..

There is a filter in the Relay (part #8 on the first page I think) that helps filter CO2 if you decide to run it. Not sure I would trust it to run CO2 into my Axe or Mini but the guys teaching the tech class seemed to think it would be OK.

The only problem one might have with using CO2 on the Relay is with the black piston oring. I believe it's buna which can have problems with CO2. Hopefully the polyurethane oring on the piston won't allow CO2 past it to the buna oring though.
