what kind of reg to buy?

Unread postAuthor: Griff » Sun Jan 10, 2010 4:49 pm

hey everyone

i just finished the construction on my bbmg. i would like to use it in a skrimish this week and have no air supply. i have a sun project air tank that gets about 3-5 seconds of fire time.

i googled regulators and had no problem finding them, but could anyone recomend a good one? preferably one that could be found at a hardware store if possible.

the gun is a cloud type for now but i plan on adding a vortex cap soon if that helps

thanks

The regulater and air source work hand and hand. Figure out what air source your going to use and that will no dought limit your regulater choices. Start by getting your air source.

Palmer's Stabilizers are the best you can buy. Adjustable 0-800 psi. Kinda pricey though. Look around their site they have everything you need.

For the regulator from Lowes I think it was around $90 USD.

I don't think you need a remote line, I believe it just has a length of compressor hose with a quick disconnect on the end.
