C02 Regulator

Unread postAuthor: idespisecats » Tue May 22, 2007 10:55 am

Hey I saw this the other day when I went to Lowe's and it's the most perfect thing I've ever seen for c02 regulation. it costs about the same as a palmer, looks a lot cleaner, and needs no additional fitting to hook up to a regular 1/4" npt quick connect. What do you think?

its pretty good and will satify most needs spuder's needs, there's no shipping cost as a pro, but palmers are still incrediblely reliable since they are for paintball and they are flexible for N2 or CO2

I think a palmers female looks better then that!
The palmers will be more consistant and recharge faster.
But nice find!

it looks like it only goes up to 120 psi, which is a shame. Modification is always an option though, and *woot* they have one at my lowes, I know what i'm getting.

the 120 psi thing is probably a plus because it'll keep stupid people from overcharging their cannons. If you want higher than 120 palmers still work great, but I think this is a simpler solution for people new to C02.

well i just got one today and the thing can go well over 120 psi, just need a different gauge and cut some of the plastic off so you can get the regulator knob turned farther.
Personnally, i think this thing rocks, and the 100 price tag is damn good, cause you get the regulator, an empty tank, and a full one if the case has a coupon for one, a 27 dollar value free!!. It also accepts paintball tanks which are cheaper then the ones lowes sell. Personnally i think this is a better deal then a palmers cause it comes with so much more and should be easy to modify.

yeah they are, but they charge a whole bunch more. course you can buy one and just exchange it for a full one for like 3 bucks, but maybe thats just mine.

You can get normal paintball tanks filled for $5, I think Dicks will do it now since they are selling more paintball supplies.

If it isn't directly compatible, I'm sure there are adapters that would work. That is a very interesting regulator, I'm seriously looking into buying one. Can anyone see a reason something like that wouldn't work?

but if i was going to buy a reg for a bulk tank this is whered id go
