...worth EVERY penny IMO.
For us who have the pennies to spare
I think wyz is on a slightly tighter budget though...
I hadn't planned on putting a regulator there but would it be worth it?
Without a regulator, every shot is going to be slightly less powerful than the previous one. If long range accuracy is important, consistency is certainly something you should be looking at (plus a host of other things which we can go into if necessary).
If however you're interested in a bit of plinking in your back yard at tin cans 25 yards away, not really worth the bother.
i've found a few paintball regs on ebay for under $30
Be careful, most of the cheap ones like this
are designed for a 3000 psi input/800 psi output, so not useful in your case.
If you're going with a small chamber, I wouldn't bother. What would concern me is making sure that all the fittings can take the full 600 psi.
An alternative is to use something like this
that maxes out at 150 psi, and use a bigger chamber (say 25-30mL) to keep power at a decent level. This will give you at least 10 consistent shots from a main chamber fill.
and again i appreciate the help
No worries, we all had a leg up somewhere along the line
