so... i figured out what was causing my hpr recharge issues on the bko i just picked up... the valve seal (the urethane thing that the brass cup seals on) seems to have varying size holes in the middle for the piston pin to go thru... i swapped the one that was in the hpr with one from a working spare lpr, and it works great.... after comparing them, by the time you tighten down the cap on the bottom of the reg, it squishes the urethane enough that it was actually making the seal touch the pin on the piston, essentially sealing it off so air could only creep past......

so.... check the inner diameters of the seals....

the HPR bumper and valve seals, are the same material, but different openings. so someone might have had a oring kit but used the first one they grabbed, which might have been the one for the valve.

but it is good to know, but the stock regs do leave a lot to be desired when compared to other HPRs.

agreed, but when its on a bko that was bought specifically to either sell or loan out to newbs (did the latter saturday, guy had a blast!) it does quite fine.....the reg can currently keep upwith a 15bps stream with no noticeable drop off.... thats a heck of a lot better than the one shot 100psi drop that it had before....
