Classic Valve Backs (Regulator) Options

Good Day All,

So I am still working on my project Mag and am looking for some options for the regulator on my Minimag valve. I have seen a few pictures and read about there being some regulators that thread in to the back of the Valve front. I currently am using a Plug/Cap with Gauge and an AKA Sidewinder and my rail is trimmed down flush with the valve so would like something cool for aesthetics if I put a regulator back on the valve (No Z-Pin).

Is one of them the "Air America Raptor" regulator? I think ANS had some pieces that worked too didn't they?

Also, what are the guts like in those? Are they the same as a standard Classic Valve back?

If anyone could list the parts I can use to replace the valve back it would be much appreciated so I can correctly populate my WTB thread and get these parts in my grubby little paws.

Most of the AA regs will work with the mag and yes the guts are the same to a point. Some of the regs have larger spring packs and only reason for that is due to the larger adj screw. If you change out the adj screw and spring pack with a stock mag one, you'll be good to go.

Vigilante, RAPTOR, UniReg and Violator will all work.

I bought one the other day just to tinker with ($7?). It's an empty back. I put a set of internals in it. Everything seems to fit right, but I haven't put it on anything yet. It's very light, being aluminum and less material. It should be good with CO2.

I would love to find a Black Ice since they look shorter than the Vigilante, but there are none available so I am going to try to get one of the vigilantes from the BST.

I am in Canada, so no dice with I&I.

Thanks for the heads up though.

Edit: Nevermind just read shipping policy; might be good to go. Thanks Ando

If you really want one and they're charging you a leg to get it shipped. Let me know. I'll get one for you and ship it out myself.
