I have also experienced the reg being blamed when it is not at fault, if i have fitted a reg to gun and something goes wrong with the gun later on the owner often jumps to the conclusion that it is the reg, its an occupational hazard!

I only wondered as I (thought) I'd tried everything

They say a picture paints a thousand words.. Pic here

Looks like the toilet remains from a night on the curry,that's probably why it's been shooting shite
I do hope so, it was really starting to wind me up just need to get out & stick a bit of lead through it now
In life you should not persue goals that are easily achieved, develop an instinct for what can be only just achieved through your greatest efforts.
