      VCR Bill

      Since the introduction of the "latest" VCR bill on 1st October 2007, sales of AIRGUNS (including replicas) AND MAJOR COMPONENTS (barrels, cylinders etc.) by DEALERS is restricted to a face-to-face transaction.   Please ensure you are familiar with the changes brought about due to the VCR act, which may be viewed on the BASC website.   BASC and ACPO have produced a guide to the VCR act in PDF format, which avoids legalese and is very understandable. See HERE.   AirGunForum members must ensure their transactions conform with current legislation before posting.   An inter-dealer network to facilitate the continuation of mail order business is being established by Portland Jon. Details are HERE or direct to his website HERE.

Weihrauch HW100 Regulator Stripdown by NightHawk

Recommended Posts

After several thousand shots and 2 years of service, my regulator started to stick and spread the velocity. So i decided to stripdown my regulator and renew all o rings. i searched google but i did not find a topic for regulator stripdown and service. i did take some pictures for all weihrauch hw100 owners which like to DIY.

 

i start with my scope, after marking it's position i removed my scope.

 

After removing the scope, i removed cylinder for my safety.

You have to turn over the rifle and remove 2 stock screws.

img2693i.jpg

 

To take the barrel, you have to remove this grubscrew , but mark the barrel position.

 

img2695h.jpg

 

When you removed the barrel you are ready to remove the trigger group. it is held by 2 screws. Be sure the rifle is not cocked. Decock if necessary (open the cocking lever, fully press trigger, slowly close cocking lever while the trigger is pressed)

 

img2696k.jpg

 

Now you can remove 2 long bolts to remove the pneumatic part.

 

img2697.jpg

 

Now we have to remove 2 bolts to open the firing valve assembly.

 

img2698u.jpg

 

You can clean these parts with a paper towel.

 

img2699.jpg

 

img2703p.jpg

 

if you wish you can polish the valve cap. i used metylan metal polish for mirror finish.

 

img2705e.jpg

 

Now we mark the regulator cap to find easly the position after. i suggest you to write down the number of turns you have to turn to remove the cap.

 

img2701ic.jpg

 

Under the action we have a grubscrew, we have to take it but beware there is a tiny ball inside, take it and put it in a secure place, do not loose!

 

img2711m.jpg

 

we can now open the regulator cap and remove regulator valve and washer springs. Pay attension to the number and positions of the springs. Clean all parts and inside of the block.

 

img2702u.jpg

 

After the cleaning and relubing with silicone based greases like Molycote 33

 

Molycote 33 Datasheet

 

O ring sizes required. All sizes are metric !!!

 

2.57x1.78 for cylinder.

 

img2707.jpg

 

7x1.50 for Regulator assembly

 

img2708n.jpg

 

8x1.50 for regulator cap

 

img2710w.jpg

 

11x1.50 for firing valve cap

 

inside this cap there is a pellet probe o ring which is

 

5.5x1 for 5.5 (.22) rifle.

 

img2713n.jpg

 

8x1.50 Barrel face O ring

 

img2719u.jpg

 

I Use Loctite 248 for barrel grubscrew. it is recommended for accuracy and loose barrel problems.

Assembly is in reverse order, but be gentle on o rings. Have a good day.

 

My FAC regulator has 16 springs in this order

Hi NightHawk,

 

Could you please tell me how many turns for regulator cap for washer springs for FAC model ? I have tried to clean mine, but forgot to mark exact position :(

 

Also, hole with tiny ball inside and grubscrew is supposed to be port for manometer? is this true ? If so, any idea what kind of adapter/manometer would be suitable to use?

 

Thank you

Your o-ring for valve cap (11x1.5) is too large c/s. Factory size is 12x1.2 - even this is too large c/s. Both these sizes suffer installation damage. groove/channel containment surface dimensions should exceed o--ring c/s. 12x1 is the correct size.

 

Inside Reg Valve (2 brass components) is 2x2 (factory) o-ring. Again this is wrong size and suffers over-compression. Replace with 2.57x1.78 (same as reg inlet)

thank you POK! i changed valve cap o ring before, it leaks sometimes. you are right, 12x1 is better. i forgot to mention, mine developped a leak 2 days after the installation from the valve cap, i changed with a smaller diameter as you mentioned here. i thinked it is from loose bolt or over tightened barrel grubscrew.

 

is that Inside Reg Valve (2 brass components) is o ring 132 in the diagram?

Breech block - 12x1.2 IMO too large c/s. It will seal on assembly but gets pinched between block and action body acting as a gasket "crush installation", this can lead to extrusion and failure. Any subtle shift of breech block position and it fails (i.e tighten barrel grub screw). Although technically it's already failed as soon as fitted. 12x1mm much better, deforms under load to seal and can be reused.

 

The other o-ring is unlisted and doesn't appear on any parts diagrams/lists. It seals the 2 brass components that make up the reg valve body. Factory is 2x2mm. This o-ring also gets pinched during assembly, it's 2mm ID interferes with reg valve (ball bearing) seating. Replace with 2.76x1.58mm
