Mystery Regulator

Does anybody know what kind of regulator this is, and if so, is it any good ?



The little hole on the side near the top is threaded for 10-32, but it's empty. I assume something (a set screw) should be in there. Is that how it's adjusted ?

I haven't aired it up yet, since I'd kind of like to know more about it before going that route. Hopefully taking it apart and cleaning it first as well, since it was quite imbued with teflon tape all over the place.

Thanks in advance.

Looks like it could be a Gladiator reg

In many ways, it does look like an unmilled gladiator. When you take it apart, take a picture of the internals.

Cool. I'll try and pop it open tomorrow and take some pics of the internals for you. If it is a gladiator, is that threaded hole at the top for an adjustment screw ?
If it helps, the reg is 3.6" long and 0.987" in diameter.

I do believe if I remember right that is an adjuster screw port

Guts of the mystery reg revealed.



The top piece contains that white delrin piston, the spring and ball bearing. The ball bearing is visible through the 10-32 threaded hole, and I guess a set screw pushes the ball bearing down putting more compression on the spring, and thus the piston.

So, does this help anyone ID it ? Is it indeed a gladiator ?

Stock ICD reg, perhaps from an '03 BKO.

Hole near top is the adjuster. Should have a set screw that pushes down on ball, compresses spring...

Awesome, thanks Target. Do you know if they're any good ? What's the recharge rate like ? Do they tolerate CO2, or are they HPA only ?

Those regs on 03 ICD guns are junk...

Ive used them with co2 to some success but there adjustment range just sucks.. like 1/4th of a turn could jump the out put up 250 PSI..

ICD regs are not known as "great".
Typically one of the first items that are upgraded.

And they are low pressure regs. ICD guns opereate at sub 300psi .
