That airtank can give me 9 shots with 520 fps and a .43 gram 6mm bb and my magasine only holds 8 rounds

Will the regulator and small hole regulate or not ?

that's not a lot for a full auto, and pop off/snap valves aren't very efficient.

I don't think you should need confirmation on that. Certain regulators with certain holes will regulate, but I'd recommend buying a flow control valve because they're cheap and adjustable

More efficient than a pop-off pilot, certainly :P

I can make one myself for approx 1.5$ , so its not a problem
Instead of full auto, i might make a very small hole (like 1/32) to fill the chamber in 2 seconds and use a bolt action instead of a magasine, it will reduce bb costs and the need to re-pump soon .
