Title: Externally adjustable paintball regulator prototype is done!
Post by: oldpro on October 24, 2017, 07:07:06 PM
 I finally got the externally adjustable paintball Reg prototype done and working great! I’ve been dreaming about this for over a year but it was such a hard task to be honest I shelved it for awhile but I had a break threw today and got a fully functioning prototype done and tested then I sent it off atomic Motorhead for further testing. I also shared the build information with Rstern in hopes he builds one and looks for any flaws or finds a better way in building it. :)

In our talks it sure seems like a solid way of creating adjustablity in an otherwise non adjustable configuration.

Guys

I am holding my breath to hear more, and I can't hold it much longer, LOL.  8)

I for one, am VERY interested, as I want a Co2/Hpa dual fuel use.
This sounds like just what the Dr ordered...... for my disease.

You let the cat out of the bag, Any more 411?  Inquiring minds want to know.......... ;)
I am glued to this.

I'm really interested in this. It would work nicely on my new rifle.

 Working on technical drawings and then I’ll secure patent rights. Tomorrow off to see Matt at the machine shop.

Patents are filed and now we will look hard at mass production. I think this will be a big one!

Congrats Travis, looking forward to getting one of these.  How big a range does the adjustment have in the reg?

Still waiting, my 79 is drooling all over the place...... 8)

With a SSG and your valve, it should be the ultimate tuners delight, to get the most from AR's,
for us new ones following along and learning.

Thank you, Travis

Hey travis,  how many of these do you think you'll sell?  Will the quantity be enough to cover the patent expense and buy a six pack of beer?  Patents are expensive! well...... unless you are the patent attorney :-\. Travis, are you a patent attorney? Can't wait to see them. I'm wondering how you access the adjustment.
