FX Impact M3 1st Stage Regulator & Bottle Connector
This is a direct replacement for the FX Impact M3 / Mk3 . The full bottle connector assembly includes the 1st stage regulator also.
The 1st stage regulator within the Mk3 models is designed to reduce the pressure differential pressure from your air bottle to your 2nd stage regulator. This can be more of an issue when shooting pellets at lower regulator pressures, meaning the DP is much higher than when shooting slugs at higher regulator pressures. This can put extra strain on some regulators.
Another benefit of the 1st stage regulator is it allows a higher bottle pressure to be used upto 300barg, that some after market bottle providers supply. The 1st stage regulator reduces these pressure to below >250barg ensuring the internals of the Impact do not see a pressure that is higher than the safe design pressure.
