Co2 regs

Unread postAuthor: noname » Tue Jul 11, 2006 6:57 pm

Can someone give me a link to a specific type of CO2 reg that they have bought and used or seen someone else use? And can regular steel threads hold 850 psi?
I need a link to a commonly used Palmer or something like that. And what is a good way to attach it to a paintball tank or drop forward? I could drill out the hole in the drop forward and make it bigger and put a steel nipple in if needed.

Thanks for the link salad but which one should I actually buy? Just the cheapest or what? Like the PPSP011 with the 0-1200 guage and 0-800 psi operating pressure? That looks easy and cheap compered to the others.

(If anyone wants to know, this is for a pump-action golf ball cannon using this loading mechanism but without shells.)

Paintball regs arent scientific quality by any standards, but are cheap and do the job perfectally.

What you are paying for in a paintball regulator is better fill-to-fill consistancy, and quicker recharge. The more expensive, "cool" looking, ones are more for regulating compressed air or N2.

The palmer regulators are known to be some of the best CO2 regs, if not the best, in paintball. They are well worth the money if you have it.

All paintball regulators accept 1/8" NPT threaded fittings.

EDIT: I would recomend the 0-250psi "low pressure system" for finer tuning.

There are plenty of setups availble for almost every need.

Does 0-250 psi mean it can take the full pressure of a CO2 tank?

0-250psi is referring to the output pressure of the regulator. All co2 regulators are designed to handle the full co2 tank pressure which when the ambient temperature is high enough can exceed 1000psi.

Oh, so you can adjust it to let out 0-250 psi. I get it now. :D
