Has anyone tried using this? Was it worth the investment cost and effective enough to tame and get the most accuracy and efficiency for the gun say at 850fps, using 18 grains 22 calibre JSB's?

Your inputs would be highly appreciated.

As to which caliber are you refering and grain of ammo used.
Bit more information can result in a better answer from those who have done as such with these regs.

I don't know anything about Altaros regulators, but do a search on this forum on Audrius regulators. I know that some airgunners, Knappr, for example, had great success with them on Hatsan rifles.

I have one, works ok. But he may need to also ship you an extra piece that has 2 more o rings as the BT65 cylinders have been found to be not completed round, thus producing air leaks at the regulator, atleast mine does.

Thanks! I'll remember to bring that up with Altaros when I put my order. I just read that they are now selling the reg with 2 o rings and spare ones to replace if it starts to leak.

Cheers!

we are probably saying the same thing but I just don't want you to be disappointed, all of his regulators come with extra o rings, with the bt65 unit he has an additional machined piece that holds a few more o rings. That piece slides over the end that you adjust and butts up to the main reg body. Like I said we are probably saying the same thing, just don't want you to get any surprises.

Hi Jaxcat,

You're right when I looked closely at the video posted. I've sent Michal of Altaros about this extra "part" and will post here what he said. Thanks for catching it!

Hi Jaxcat,

Just got an email from Michal of Altaros saying that extra part is now included in the body of the new BT65 regs. They will also ship extra orings to the package but it will totally depend on the user if he/she wants to install it. He sent a picture of the new unit but am not sure how to post it here.

Thanks for the information shared!
