Rain Bird 32ETI sprinkler system pressure regulator issue

So, I have installed a Rain Bird 32ETI ("Easy To Install") sprinkler system on the outside faucet that has 140 PSI pressure. The installation notes indicate that there is an inline pressure regulator. However, when I hook up a pressure gauge to the other end of the regulator attachment, I'm getting the same 140psi as when I hook the pressure guage direct to the faucet. This is a brand new out of box kit. What am I missing?

I can't hook sprinkers to 140 psi and expect decent operation or longevity can I?

Rain Bird customer support is closed but I will call in the am to see what they say. Not expecting much.
