    Shooting 31gr at 750 fps and 26gr at 850 fps. My goal is to get in the 900 – 950 fps range.

    The hammer spring is all the way in.

    Turn up the reg shouldn’t be a problem.

    I wonder if anyone has put a HUMA reg in the Vulcan II….?

    If your reg is working why replace it? Just turn the reg up. I’ve not heard many complaints about Vulcan regs.

    Hooters, if you don’t have a reg tester, pull the reg out, very easy to do. Measure the overall length of the reg, loosen the nut and turn the adjuster CCW about a 1/16″. That should get you about where you want to be. I had my buddies reg out yesterday and adjusted his up from 135bar to 140 bar, but I have a reg tester. If you need on made, call John Hagen, I gave him the measurements off my Vulcan2 reg so he could make me one.
    Just so everyone knows, the reg in the older Vulcans is the same as the Vulcan2, as far as size. If you don’t have a puller, unscrew the airguage and push it out with a 3/4″ piece of PVC.

    And yes the HUMA will fit either Vulcans, I have one.

    Thanks Zonk!

    I was checking Youtube for possible instructions on disassembling the Vulcan, but nothing on the Vulcan II, however that shouldn’t be a problem if the two guns are as similar in construction as you stated.

    I’ll Zonkerize the reg and see what takes place. I’d like to shoot the heavier pellet/slugs in the low 30gr range. They make a most satisfactory “THUD” when the lead meets the target. Brings back fond memories of shooting my former neighbor’s chickens.

    It’s a piece of cake to take apart. The newer Vulcan2 is much easier to take apart as far as removing the air tube and barrel, IMO.

    Zonk…you idiot!

    I took my Vulcan2 apart and finally had to sell it for parts, as it wouldn’t go back together.

    Upon removing the regulator, I found a dead rat jammed in the air cylinder and had a devil of a time getting it out.

    Following that, I disassembled the regulator and lost three of the washers down a cold air return vent on my floor. I substituted them with some old lawnmower washers I had in my assorted parts drawer, but the gun never worked right after that!

    Now I have no pcp…it’s all your fault! Further, it’s entirely your fault that this forum died a slow and painful death!!! Shame!!!

    Regards,

    Hoot, how many times have I told you to put the bottle of moonshine down before playing with your guns! BAD boy.
    The Vulcan2 is soooo easy to work on even Oak could do it!
