Well, I don't know if it was changing the o-ring or pulling out the mounds of grease, but the reg is now adjustable.

So Craig, what should the input pressure be on a 1K Blazer?

Mine worked best @ 450psi. Any less and I would get shoot-down.

I presume that's the same for a 2K Blazer (ie. @ 450psi)? Thanks.

EDIT:

Nope!

Amazing what I learn when I actually read the stickies.

I wonder of CO2 / Air makes a difference on optimum pressure, you can certainly tell in the action. I tried to sweet spot my 2K and came up with about 425 psi on air.

How does one "sweet spot" a Blazer? Same as a cocker I presume?

I don't know about 'cockers.

Something like turn down the reg, the shoot and turn it up slowly, velocity will rise as you turn up the reg, then there will be a 'sweet spot' where the velocity is constant with reg changes, then velocity will go down , even with increasing pressure.

The actual velocity may not be a playing level, so adjust to ~290 fps and do it again, the sweet spot may move. Rinse and repeat until sweet spot produces about 290 fps.

I'm not much of a tinkerer and did this once a while ago and seem to get about 425, I should do it again now it's all back up and running.

Set the RVA to the flush,, Play with the Stabilizer adjustment until you find the highest velocity. Then adjust RVA to playable velocity.


Most Blazers end up around 450 psi if sweet spotted.

I like to run 2k Blazers and cockers with Palmer valves at 350 psi.


A 1k usually ends up at 400+ psi.

You can run a 2k down to 300 psi, its quite but a little hard on the Master link, bolt pin, and cocking lug.


CO2 is a slower gas with more energy. The increased expansion rate and smaller molecule of HPA can drop your FPS. IE.. HPA can stop expanding before the ball reaches the end of the barrel.
