Alteros regulator

Bob explain to me how this guy can fill the gun to 3000 with the gauge behind the regulator and then shoot all those shots with using such a tiny chrony.

Not Bob obviously but sounds about right. Alittle over 30 shots on the reg on a .22 putting out 39J or around 28fpe.

Bob
I went to their site and I figured out the psi part because the regulator is so small it fit in a standard air gauge block and the gauge always shows the pressure in the tube not the regulated pressure so you chrony till you see you are off the regulator.  The gauge then reads what the pressure is in the tube.  But I still can't figure such a small chrony so close to the barrel.  This does away with the modified enlarged gauge port and according to the film they can custom the fpe to 44 or 60J.  What do you think will it work with war or cobra valve and all the open ports we have done.

Sounds about right to me to, without doing the calcs.... He used 1300 psi of air for the 40 shots, the last 5 or so off reg....

Small Chrony's can work just fine, mounted at the muzzle.... but to have equal accuracy must have a faster clock rate (measure smaller time increments) and be very rigid.... and of course not be sensitive to muzzle blast....

Thanks Bob , looks like a nice neat little easy to use regulator.  Just not sure about using it with our War mods and advanced oversized ports.

Well it won't have a decent sized plenum, so high power would be difficult....
