Regulator parts
« on: February 09, 2021, 08:17:46 PM »
I’ve acquired a Flex/Warp/WarP Cobra, I’ve been given all these different names for this gun. But I’m needing some regulator parts. I’m not savvy with names of the parts but i think maybe seat & face?? Anyone have any ideas??

First, tell me where you got it?

I suspect, if the word Cobra was attached, then it is just a "Cobra". The Flex and Warp were names applied to the first two models (by Jim Gaska and/or Travis Whitney). The Cobra was a gun similar to the others (aluminum frame), but with the Cobra valve snd larger transfer port. I owned one of the few Cobra models sold, and literally gave it away. I know what happened to that Cobra, hence the question I ask.

The regulator does have creep and will have, as long as you fill the gun to 4,500 PSI, and you don't adjust the regulator under pressure! Over the life time of the regulator, there were several different materials used for the valve seal. If you actually own the WAR I once owned, you have the latest material. If the regulator isn't working at all, it is the o-rings, not the seat itself. The tiny ones are #0s, but I don't remember the others. I used the same ones the .25 breach used. But again, the regulator does creep overnight, and you won't fix it!

Jim Gaska still has some parts available. However, he has a very difficult job, requiring long weeks and nights. If you do email him, expect to wait. If you have other questions, ask away!

Thanks Mr. Alan, I believe this was actually the one you had. Yes the regulator does creep but it does work. Last night I took it Apart & cleaned everything & starting from zero with it today. I set the reg at 1250 & with in an hour it crept to around 1400. Before I took it back down I had it set at around 2200 running 900fps  it it wasn’t as accurate as it was around 850-860. I hope this was yours so maybe I could get some back ground on it.

It is indeed the one I owned. It is a long story why I gave it to Brian. But the deal was, he's pay it forward when he could. Low and behold, Kevin (Steelhead) needed a pumper for his nephew, and Brian came to the rescue. You'll find a lot of similar folks here, who will go out of their way to help a fellow airgunner, and do so without enumeration.

I personally shot over 20,000 rounds through the airgun, and when I shipped it to Brian is was still holding 3/4 inch, 100 years groups if I did my part. I now use an Impact, but that's a different story.

The one single item that caused me a real issue was the secondary sear. That sear is a proprietary item, and cannot be bought from Timney. However, the issue which cause it to be mounted cockeyed, as fixed with a new trigger mounting assembly. I know why is was bad, but let's leave sleeping dogs lie, at least on line. I'll PM you with my telephone number, just in case.
