Cheap Co2 Reg?

Unread postAuthor: CannonCreator » Wed Sep 05, 2007 6:46 pm

Well as most of you konw espically from my sig, I paintball. I haven't been around much of the Woodsball type of stuff.

But here is something Called a Remote. It is a way to keep the Co2 tank off your gun, and in a harness on your back, or in a bigger pocket. All I know about these is that you can control the Pressure by turing that blue knob at the top of the ASA (the thing were you screw the tank into).

But as you can see that on the end of it there is a adapter meant to screw into a ASA on a paintball gun (were you usually screw in the tank). But this can be removed bysimpley unscrewing it off the system.

Since there is no guauge on the Remote you can just add one to the camber on your gun, or a little more money and complication, add one to the Remote.

HERE IS A LINK TO ONE:

So anyways, there are a huge variety of these I just picked this one becuase the blue knob helps with refference in the above paragraghs.

So do you think this will work guys? Would it be worth the decrease in money spent on other regs, or would you just be better off spending more $$ for the other ones like you get at Lowes?

from y experience i have noticed that the further you push down the pin on the actual tank itself the higher the pressure you get out.but when the pin is pressed just a little bit (so its with in the 100-200psi range) the flow seems to be very low. this is not ideal on a vortex gun but could work on something like a small to medium sized pneumatic single shot gun. i used a reg very similar in design to the one you provided a link to (the screw knob type design) but it only cost me $20 and was not part of a remote kit. i don't know who made it or what type of quality it was. mine had a 0-2000psi gauge i installed on it and the slightest turn on the knob seemed to make it jump 50psi until it got to about 400psi then it seemed to rise more fluidly. these don't seem to work in lower psi situations but i don't know mine just could have been crap.

its not really a reg. You can get a expansion chamber which is basically a reg for c02. Or you can get a used Bob long Torpedo which you can find for 10-40 or so.

Well I know its not a reg, I play, but you can use it for a red after a little bit of modding. Basically just a guage. I Have a torpedo, and a CP reg but Its not going to do great on PVC
