fwiw, ptfe will likely be too soft and very well might shrink or swell too rapidly.

Good to know, just trying something. All the seats on everything iv had seems to be 90 durometer shore A, urethane, amd ptfe is deff harder than that. Of it fails it fails, just wanna try it. I only have my PE reg and some WGPs, i'll give the other ones i make away if anyone wants to test them.

Yeah most of the ones I've come across are either Polyurethane, Urethane, or Rubber typically. PTFE might work in the right reg, just figured I'd give you a heads up since I have to deal with that material all the time and am all too aware of its shortcomings.

If you dont mind what do you do where you work with teflon a lot? My shop is 30/30/30% 303/304, 6061, and low carbon, 10% whatever else. I've personally only made a handful of ptfe parts.

what about a poppet seat? that would be on the low pressure side after the reg...

this is for a tippmann but there were some for spyders and the sort that had a brass cup with a soft rubber seat/base.

Kinda related, I am making Ego8 reg seats out of 1/16” thick 90A durometer buna-nitrile that I punch out from a 6”x6” sheet to 1/16” diameter discs. I’ve had good results so far.

It seems like Teflon might be less forgiving to surface imperfections than buna-nitrile rubber or polyurethane?

Brass Eagle Rainmaker LPR seats appear to made out of teflon... not that anyone really runs the stock LPRs if they still have Rainmakers.

What im shooting for is greater longevity, and MAYBE greater consistency.
That said if anyone has a request, and can provide dimensions, ill try basically anything.

Taraun, shoot me some dims and ill gladly try one/two out for ya. I just made a run of spyder cupseals, and nelson cupseals out of delrin.

Side story: buddy had a diablo that leaked (found the seat in the cup was gone) i took a spyder cupseal (8-32 thread) and just sat it over the stub of the powertube, reassembled assuming the valve spring would be sufficient to hold it in place. It was. Gun works flawlessly. But i went ahead and made a batch of the exact same dimension cupseals as a spyder but drilled for a 6-32 instead of 8, and will put one of those in his gun, and gladly give one to anyone else who wants to test it.
