Dragun TES Questions
 
Hey everyone, I picked up an old Dragun TES that needs a little work as a project, and have a few questions about it (not sure what year at this moment, but I don't think it should matter). I don't have the manual in front of me at the moment, so my numbers may not be exact-

1. This appears to be a mid-pressure gun (manual says suggested operation around 325-400 PSI or so). I've got a 62ci 3000 PSI metal Guerrilla air tank. My understanding is these put out 800-850 PSI, but this will be ok to use on the TES as the regulator in the TES will knock the pressure down to the operating range (325-400). Is this correct?

2. I also want to make sure the output of the regulator on the TES is the correct pressure. My model of TES has a gauge at the top of the front handle (where the regulator resides). Should this gauge read the output of the regulator (325-400), or the output pressure of the tank (800-850)?

3. I did some searching, and it looks like the striker o rings are hard to come by (even 8 or so years ago). Anyone have ideas on where to pick up extras, or even what that style of o-ring is called so I can search it out (something like V O-Rings)? The one I have now is intact, but a little dry.


Thanks for any help anyone can provide, I've never worked with LP/MP guns before.

Output of the reg for question #2.

You are correct on #1. For #3, you would hope that if you ever had to, that there is a similarly sized to a normal o-ring. Leave it alone (outside of lubing it) until it finally breaks. Who knows you might never have that happen. If it does, take it to ACE and see what fits and if it's in between get some high and some low and see what is the most reliable.
