    Does anyone know if crossfire still rebuilds regs?

    I've been on the lookout for a low pressure tank for awhile, and I've found a few crossfire's, but from what I understand is you need to send them out to get them serviced. Are they still doing this?

    Crossfire no longer exists as a company

        Don't think so.

      My crossfire reg crapped out last May, I just replaced it with a Ninja V1. It is smaller and easily adjustable by adding or removing shims. Think it was $40 plus or minus.

        There was some kind of deal where Ninja took over Crossfire's DOT certifications so the tanks could continue to be used and rehydro'd as normal. I don't know if that involved anything about servicing regs but it doesn't hurt to call and ask.

          I have had great luck with the (across town) local paintball shop rebuilding a Crossfire. I would be willing to bet there is somewhere you can send it if there is nowhere local to have it done.

            If my memory serves me, this is what I remember. No guarantee its 100% accurate

            Crossfire closed up shop out of the blue one day a few years ago. No note on the door (so to speak) or anything. When that happened, the DOT permit they had for any cylinder they manufactured instantly "expired" (don't know what the technical term should be). They made tanks for several companies including Ninja. So what did that mean? If you owned a tank manufactured under that particular DOT permit/license number (which was a lot), your tank was instantly "expired" and could not be hydro tested and I think even filled by anyone legally.

            Ninja stepped up and managed to obtain the DOT/permit license allowing normal testing/filling of the tanks to resume. This all took a couple months at most??

            So Crossfire is no more. My customer service experience with them within the two years prior to that all going down was not great. The regs are great... as long as you don't try to rebuild them. And to the best of my knowledge no one ever made a rebuild kit for them. Crossfire could rebuild them, but I don't think they offered a rebuild kit to customers.

              Interesting. What's the issue with rebuilding them?

              I used to pass Crossfire's shop when driving to and from college. All of the regs I've had from them have been outstanding, but the one I have now is attached to an expired tank. I have four other tanks, so if it's a pain to rebuild this one, I won't bother to tear it off the tank.

                I bought a tank from their eBay store (LP) but wanted them to put an HP reg on it that I sent them. I wanted it rebuilt too but they argued that their regs usually don’t need rebuilt.
                I understand that but that’s not the point...
                I filled it fine then sometime after the first couple uses, it vented the tank out the pin valve. Had trouble getting a hold of them about it, but finally did and sent it in for repair. It came back and I think I had another issue with it later down the line. About then is when they closed up shop. I tried rebuilding another crossfire reg to put on a 17ci. Worked fine but had a slow leak. Gave up at point.

                  I don’t know of any replacement reg seats. Like I have never heard of any for sale or anyone mention part x from this reg works to rebuild a crossfire. It’s entirely possible but info about it is sparse at best.

                    I am fully cognizant of the fact that I've been drinking, but perhaps I've had a stroke while I'm at it: Amongst the grammatical errors in the quoted posted, but 'need rebuilt' is a might bit tricky. Do you mean "needs to be rebuilt", like a normal person would say?

                    I think I'm going to remove the Crossfire regulator, and hang the bottle on the fence line so I have a nice target for testing/target practice.

                      Also, please define “normal person”.

                      Drinking or not, if you are going to go down a semantic highway, make sure your own grammar is correct.

                      It would still be “need” not “needs” because the subject of the sentence was “regs”, which is a shortened, slang term of the word “regulators”. To say “regulators needs to be be rebuilt” would be awkward. You know like an un-normal person would say.

                      TL: DR
                      A: unless you need a clarification on meaning or it is truly necessary to understand what was said, take the high road and don’t correct people about grammar on social sites. It smells of snobbery, drinking or not.
                      B: If grammar bugs you, just ignore the comment.
                      C: Typing on a “normal person” sized phone in response to a question that you asked on a lunch break 5 minutes before joining another meeting might lead to grammatical mistakes. Unless someone is grading posts for college credit, it doesn’t matter.

                        I had my crossfire reg go a couple years back and needed a rebuild as well. My local shop could do it, but pointed out that for $10 more I could get a new ninja reg which would be easier to service in the future, which I opted to do. It is smaller and lighter, but I’ve always felt just not quite as consistent, but I couldn’t say why.

                          Isn't the issue with the Crossfire regulator needing a special tool to open it? I think channel locks could be used, but the finish of the regulator would get messed up.

                          As for parts, I am not sure. I looked into it when one of my Crossfire regulators started leaking. From what I remember the seals are o-rings that can be replaced, but that may not be 100% accurate.
