It is a fine balance of the striker, spring, valve and regulator. If you want to bring one up to 12FPE, it will require adjusting the regulator and increasing the spring preload. If you do all that, your shot count will head south and you will need a larger tank.
The Edge is what it is, a very nice 10 meter rifle. If you want something for field target, it is easier to tame down one of the other models than hop the Edge up.
Here’s a question- how does the tank thread in? like normal? It looks like there’s a collar, like the buffer tube nut on an AR… does it thread in, then you tighten the nut? Or is that just a part of the valve?
The castle nut looking part:
Hopefully it just threads in like a normal tank… I really want this to be an easily broken-down carbine.
Here’s another question: Is the tophat the same as on any other AF rifle? i.e. would I be able to use a standard Talon breech with this tophat? Or is it bigger? Or smaller?
