I see your point about "YOUR" desired pressure but just because it doesn't cover every stage of psi on the market does not mean it's not adjustable to others needs. If the Xvalve was the only valave technology on the market, this would be an issue, but since it's not, well, stick with your XFire. I had one, hated it, always felt like my bottomline/drop was loose and it was the reg the entire time. Cool concept at the time, but I went with Crossfire and have used them and PMI ever since. I did have a Ninja reg once, wasn't bad, but i prefer the shortness of the Stealth over the Ninja.
To me. An adjustable reg is one I can change in seconds like my gun velocity. If I've got to tear it apart. And swap out parts. That is not really an adjustable reg.
What interests me is a regulator that adjusts over its full range rather than in discreet steps. Also that I can adjust it externally without disassembly. These are features that I love about my Dynaflow and Flatline regs.
Frankly, if I have to take it apart to "adjust" it then I'm just not interested. I have a few of those sitting around already, some get used some don't... and I don't need any more of them.
I agree with this,.. and with the opposite end of the argument as well.
If you can change the pressure on the fly AND with the removal addition of springs/shims,... its adjustable.
HOWEVER,.... since the regs. back then were "adjustable on the fly",..... id like to see them fall into a catagory of their own,....

If you like something else for form factor reasons, that's fine. Not really to the point though.
blackdeath1k: I read somewhere the thicknesses were 0.005" and 0.022". So the lil guys are crazy thin.

So... the X-valve isn't the only valve/gun that could use an adjustable regulator.
I love my Empire Trracer.
But there were two things they carried forward in the reissue which they shouldn't have.
One of those was the @%#$%@#$@#%#$^@$^#$%#!^@$#^@#$%#^*^&%$# Civil War era musket loading style velocity adjuster.
That was a 600 dollar tank when new. Heavy as heck also. But bomb proof.
