Setting pressure of airgun regulator
Altaros regulator output pressure can be set from 100bar (1450 PSI) to 150bar (2200 PSI). For a quick setting is on regulator engraved scale according to which the desired output pressure can be set. The total scale range of 100-150bar corresponds to approximately 1/2- turn. Unscrewing, or screwing setting screw more than 1 turn may result in a malfunction of the regulation and scale will not show you regulated pressure. Groove on red marked half of setting plastic screw represents pointer which shows you currently set pressure on the scale.

Recommended settings rifle after installing the regulator. Set aside screw that restricts the flow through channel in the barrel to achieve minimum consumption at 16J. Remove the side screw, which is interfering in the channel and then try screw it little by little back until it begins to decrease Shooting speed.
Never unscrew regulator brass screw plugs! If you do so the regulator immediately stops working and repair is only possible at the manufacturer! Regulator must be installed no later than six months after purchase. Ideally immediately upon delivery.
After regulator installation keep regulator in airtube under pressure at least on 20 bars.
You must keep maximum cleanness in the entire pressure system (airtube and outer o-rings).
The disassembly of the internal parts regulator or failure at the exact installation procedure means that you can not claim the warranty. Since the regulator is not original part from the manufacturer’s, installation is on your own responsibility.
