regulator range

Unread postAuthor: spud yeti » Sat Aug 11, 2007 4:18 am

First off, I would like to say, I did google search this, with no avail, so I am asking here.
I want to regulate a CO2 tank with a regulator for my semi-auto paintball gun I am consructing; but I have a problem.
The problem is that I want the piantball gun to adhere to the regulation 300ft/s, which, according to GGDT, is approximately 65PSI (obviously that is only a rough estimate). How low do regulators go, and if they dont go down to <75 PSI, what other options are there?
Thanks in advance, and sorry for the hassle :wink:

Palmer's has regulators that go between 0 and 850psi. Check out their website to find out more (www.palmer-pursuit.com)

Ah thanks man, I'll be sure to do so :wink:
On the net it said some may go down to 150, so I got worried!

Nah. Palmer's is (in my opinion) the best regulator for CO2. Good luck.

Thanks, I only have one problem though, I live in South Africa; but I will look in the paintball shops for them, they should have them.
Which model is good/the best in their range?

It all depends on the type of setup you want and the type of marker you have. All of them do the same thing, they just have different types because of all the different type of markers.

Even if that was a problem, then you could have used a second regulator to bridge the difference quite easily.

That "bridge" would have cost too much though :?

Since you are constructing your own, the one you may want to look at would be the in-line version. This one has direct 1/8"npt input and output. This would allow you to place your ASA adapter for the tank anywhere you want and run hoses to / from the regulator. Also, on their site, this regulator is the cheaper one (at $69 US), and should be the cheaper one at your local paintball stores.

A little off-topic but if you check their site, be sure to look at that Nasty Typhoon they make :lol:

A 0-150psi regulator cost like $10NZD, which is about $7US...Im not sure how much that is in South African currency. They're pretty cheap.

Wow, thats really cheap (+- R100). Is it specifically for paintball, and if not, what kind of shop would source it?

Crowley's talking about a air regulator, to use as a secondary regulator.
