Took a couple years but I finally sent my TL in to be Regulated, this morning.

I'm on the fence about sending my TL in to be "regulated". I'd definitely be interested in your experience when you get it back and have time to put some rounds through it. Probably be a while for me anyway as I plan on sending my Mystic back in pretty soon to get the Super X upgrade so funds will be tight for a while.

Honestly if the baffles hadn't been shot up, more than once, in my TL, I would upgrade my Mystic first. I didn't take a picture, but the baffles in my TL were in pretty bad shape. A young person was shooting my 15-22, I wasn't supervising well enough, and here we are.

In the infamous words of Scooby Doo, "Rutt Roww". I've almost had strikes on mine. Get started shooting and forget to check tightness after a mag or two and have the sucker start backing off. Haven't had a strike in it yet, but can easily see it happening if attention is not paid. I've noticed though that after the first mag or two after it heats a bit that if I retighten it then I don't usually have to worry about it for the rest of the shooting session. I still check after every couple of mags, but so far so good.

I picked up my Regulator yesterday. Almost 8 months to the day.

One question.

If I clean the core in a tumbler with SS pins do I have to protect the Cerakote finish on the end cap in some way, or will it withstand tumbling?

I would cover it with duct tape.

Definately. Cerakote doesn't like soda blasting media either, not that it should.

Blue painter's tape is your friend.

Yeah cover it up, otherwise you will hurt the resale value.

Any longer term use report you could share? I'm thinking of sending my TL in Monday for the Regulator upgrade.

Nothing concerns me except for my tube being machined. I trust them, because they are the manufacturer, but I still get nervous.

edit: I omitted another concern. It may be that the change in the design of the blast chamber will increase chamber pressure duration and therefore cyclic impulse (blowback). This concern may be unfounded, but I am voicing it anyway.

To be honest, if you like the TL setup that you have, save your money and just run the TL, it is an awesome can (and is the one on my personal Spikes AR15 in 22LR) and really your only benefits are reduced weight by a few ounces, the rear cap doesnt come off under handgaurds, and lack of FRP. other than that, you really won't notice a difference in them.

Shoot that KTL and have fun!!!
