Automag RT & Palmer Stabilizer

Does anyone know if a Palmer Stabilizer will starve an Automag RT for air?

Whats the point? The RT needs 800+ psi. If you did something like use a SHP or an adjustable tank red to go above 1000psi then the palmer to reduce it to 850psi, anyone with common sense would say you are a crack head.

Pretty much. If you're worried about starving, less is more; i.e. if you are worried about rate-of-fire, you don't want to be adding stuff between the bottle and the valve reg.

Also, a stab doesn't render an RT good for CO2 use.

What about for obtaining better control of the RT effect for the local REC field? With the Ninja Pro SHP running direct into the XValve the Mag rips off rounds at around 20+ bps. I was thinking that running the SHP into the Palmer would bring this rate down to a more reasonable 12-13 bps.

Do you want to be able to adjust it often? If you pull the shims out of an SHP, you should be down around 14-15 bps.

With an 1100 bottle and a 875 stab, you might be able to control it. Before you do that, I keep forgetting to try something else...if you have a screw knob ASA, you can try adjusting the knob to slow the recharge on the valve, adjusting the rate of RT. For a monitored game, I was thinking about making a shim to put under the ASA knob.

The difficulty in controlling RT is one of the reasons some fields don't allow it. You could set the stab at 850 or so which would allow you to fire semi, but wouldnt kick in the RT as much, if at all. There is good recharge on Palmers products, so unless you turn it below the 800-850 mark you shouldnt starve the marker.
